Broker Donald R. Dahn (Dahn) has been barred by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) concerning allegations that he privately borrowed money from at least two customers, an act constituting securities fraud, while being a registered representative of Mutual Service Corporation (MSC) and LPL Financial LLC (LPL).

Dahn entered the securities industry in September 1991, as an Investment Company and Variable Contracts Products Representative (Series 6) license holder.  A Series 6 license allows a broker to recommend only a limited number of securities including variable annuities and open-end mutual funds.  From 1998 through 2009, Dahn was associated with MSC.  In 2009, MSC was acquired by LPL and Dahn became registered with LPL until his termination in April 2013.  On April 29, 2013, LPL submitted a Form U5 for Dahn.

Dahn has a long history of customer disputes and FINRA regulatory actions.  On December 5, 2012, FINRA found that Dahn violated FINRA rules by borrowing a total of $240,000 from three customers while he was employed with MSC and failing to obtain approval from his member firm for the loans.  At that time Dahn was suspended from the industry for six months.  In addition, there have been six customer disputes filed against Dahn.  The majority of the complaints involve allegations that clients loaned Dahn funds to keep his business operating.  At least one complaint alleges that Dahn made unsuitable variable annuity switches.
