SEC bars former Merrill Lynch adviser over alleged $17 million fraud

The Securities and Exchange Commission has barred a former Merrill Lynch broker in Chicago, alleging that he stole more than $1.7 million from at least three of his clients.

Marcus Boggs allegedly misappropriated his clients’ money by selling securities in their advisory accounts and then transferred the proceeds to his personal credit card account, according to the order. The SEC said Mr. Boggs was fired by the firm in December 2018 and barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Inc. in November 2019.

Additionally the SEC alleged that Mr. Boggs made more than 200 illegal transfers from clients’ accounts to pay for his credit card purchases.
