Registered representatives are often promised lucrative careers, fabulous platforms, significant resources, large travel budgets and access to many financial products, coupled with significant upfront monies, by recruiting brokerage firms in exchange for several year employment commitments and promissory notes. High expectations are then disappointed and critical promises are found to be empty when the registered representative starts the new job and realizes that he has been fraudulently induced into a position that is drastically different then described. The advisor then cannot run a successful business, causing tremendous financial loss and the inability to satisfy the promissory note’s financial obligations. Or, over time, the brokerage firm changes policy or eliminates critical revenue streams for the financial advisor that kills his ability to make a living, as well as the ability to pay back the promissory note.
