Kim Dee Isaacson, a registered representative from Farmington, Utah, formerly with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., was barred from FINRA membership as a result of an investigation into his providing false and misleading information to a customer about his investment account, which is a violation of FINRA rules. Isaacson entered into an acceptance waiver and consent agreement with FINRA, in which he neither admitted nor denied the findings, but was still barred.
In June, 2017 Isaacson agreed to the sanction, and FINRA published its findings that Isaacson lied to a customer multiple times, telling him that his accounts had more money in them than they actually did. FINRA also found that Isaacson misled the customer further, claiming that he sold portions of securities and bonds from his account when he had not. The FINRA claim alleges that Isaacson knew that he was giving his customer misleading information, and never tried to correct himself or to let the customer know.

FINRA has two primary ways to ensure compliance with the securities laws: by means of an enforcement unit that investigates and disciplines wrongdoing, and through the establishment of an arbitration forum where investors can resolve disputes against broker dealers.
