This couple received checks totaling $55,180.29 from a customer to be applied to the  couple's mortgage and were intended as loans, without notifying their respective firms of the loans and without obtaining approval to receive the loans. The couple'sí firms had policies and procedures that generally prohibited lending arrangements between the firmsí representatives and customers, with certain exceptions. Those exceptions did not apply to the loans between the customer and the couple's. The firms required that a representative receive pre-approval for any lending arrangement between the representative and a customer of the firms. The couple's have not repaid the loans.
