According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one customer complaint and recently resigned from his former employer in connection to alleged rule violations.
In March 2019 he was “permitted to resign” from his position at PFS Investments in connection to allegations he admitted borrowing $20,000 from a client at his member firm.
In February 2019 a customer alleged Michael Pina, while employed at PFS Investments, took a $20,000 check from her “for what she believed to be an investment.” The complaint settled for $20,000.
