A client filed a dispute on 7/15/2020, alleging that Platnico representative engaged in unsuitable and unauthorized options trading in Claimant’s account. The client requests damages of $1,460,000.00. The case is currently “pending.”
Two previous disputes were filed on 2/19/2019 and 2/22/2019, respectively. These disputes appear to be from the same client.
In the first claim, the client alleged that the strategy being used in his account was unsuitable, and was misrepresented to him. The client requested $265,627.73 in damages. This claim is still listed as pending.
In the second claim, the client claimed that he had not been contacted about closing out a “short” position, and the trading done on his account was unauthorized. The client requested damages of $95,690.00, and the firm settled for the same amount.
In both cases, Platnico’s rebuttal comment is that the client is a physician and a savvy investor. Matthew Platnico was instructed to close out several “short option” positions because of margin deficiencies. This client’s accounts were mistakenly traded along with others, but the client failed to notify Platnico for more than two weeks.
