Lorraine Leonie Macko
2007009415301/November 2009
Macko misused her member firmís funds by causing funds to be credited to her personal firm brokerage account and making withdrawals totaling nearly $5,000 from that account, while failing to timely make deposits corresponding to the posted credits. Mackoís account did not have sufficient funds (NSF) to cover her withdrawals, which her member firm funded. Macko caused her member firmís books and records to be inaccurate as the false credits were reflected in the firmís books and records.
Lorraine Leonie Macko: Fined $6,000; Suspended 1 year in all capacities
