Former Newbridge Securities Corporation broker Brian Berger plead guilty to three counts of wire fraud in 2017. In connection with that plea, Berger admitted that between April 2013 and September 2015, he engaged in a scheme to defraud clients and used his position to either transfer money from client investment accounts or convince clients to give him money to invest in a non-existent business. Upon pleading guilty to the charges, Berger was sentenced to 18 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
According to FINRA records, he has been permanently barred from acting as a broker. Meyer Wilson is interested in speaking with investors who have complaints connected to their investments with Brian Berger.
