FINRA Bars Johan Mary-Lyn Akal of Sarasota, Florida, from Securities Industry

Johan Mary-Lyn Akal (CRD #4050242, Registered Representative) was barred from association with any FINRA member in any capacity. See FINRA Case #2011030662501. Akal was registered with FINRA at SunTrust Investment Services, Inc., from February 2002 to December 2011.

The sanction was based on findings that Akal forged a bank customer’s signature on cash withdrawal slips and effected cash withdrawals from the customer’s account totaling $47,186.58 without the permission or authority from the customer or the bank, thereby misappropriating the funds. The bank later reimbursed the customer in full. The findings stated that Akal failed to respond to FINRA requests for information and testimony.
