Investigating Claims of Misrepresentation Against Broker Rebecca Ng-Tsang

As a financial analyst and writer, I take a keen interest in ensuring that individuals are informed and protected when it comes to their investments. It has come to my attention that Rebecca King Wah Ng-Tsang, a broker formerly with Cetera Investment Services LLC in Bellevue, Washington, is facing serious claims of misrepresentation, which have caused distress and financial harm to investors. Her professional record, marked by CRD# 5578435, is currently under scrutiny, and these allegations could serve as a stark reminder to thoroughly research the professionals you entrust with your financial future.

The Plight of a Cetera Investor

On April 20, 2023, an investor’s disappointment with Ng-Tsang’s services became apparent when they sought compensation of a staggering $400,000. This was due to substantial investment losses reportedly caused by Ng-Tsang’s misrepresentation of real estate investment trusts.

More Claims of Misrepresentation

The grievances didn’t end there. Another investor voiced their concerns on March 17, 2023, claiming that Ng-Tsang had misrepresented the products she was selling, which allegedly led to losses in real estate securities. Here, the requested compensation exceeded $5,000, and once again, Cetera Investment Services LLC and Ng-Tsang found themselves on the defense.

Unsuitable Recommendations and Ongoing Litigation

Investor distrust can certainly escalate into legal disputes, and that’s precisely what happened on April 13, 2022. An investor dragged Ng-Tsang into FINRA Arbitration No. 22-00733, accusing her of recommending unsuitable fixed annuities, thereby inflicting financial wounds. Although the exact amount sought is undisclosed, it’s assumed to be more than $5,000, with a decision yet to be reached in this case.

The fallout from Ng-Tsang’s alleged misdirection didn’t stop there, as another investor on November 21, 2021, stepped forward with claims of misrepresented real estate securities. Like the others, this claimant too sought damages from Ng-Tsang or Cetera Investment Services LLC.

However, not every accusation leads to a loss for brokers. On March 22, 2018, a similar complaint against Ng-Tsang reached a settlement, resulting in Cetera Investment Services LLC paying out $22,955.72 to the aggrieved client.

Seeking Justice and Final Thoughts

For those who may have experienced similar misfortunes due to Ng-Tsang’s guidance, there is a path to possible compensation. Firms like Soreide Law Group specialize in recovering losses for investors and can do so on a no-recovery, no-fee basis. Checking a financial advisor’s credentials is also wise, and one can review a broker’s history, including Ng-Tsang’s, through their FINRA CRM number.

It’s important to note that both Ng-Tsang and Cetera Investment Services LLC firmly deny any wrongdoing or breach of sales practices. Nevertheless, the accumulation of these accusations sheds light on the broader issue, one that Warren Buffett elegantly captured when he said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.”

Did you know that according to a report by the Securities and Exchange Commission, financial advisors with misconduct history are five times more likely to engage in similar behaviors in the future? This statistic underscores the importance of due diligence when selecting a financial advisor.

The allegations Ng-Tsang is facing should serve as a warning signal to all: be vigilant and proactive about where and with whom you invest. It is our responsibility as investors to remain vigilant against potential transgressions, ensuring our financial security and peace of mind.
