Gregg ScheibelPublicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on December 21, 2016 indicate that Virginia-based H. Beck broker/adviser Gregg Scheibel has been the subject of a customer dispute. The experienced attorneys at Fitapelli Kurta are interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Scheibel (CRD# 2315168).

Gregg Scheibel has spent 23 years in the securities industry and has been registered with H. Beck in Charlottesville, Virginia since 2010. Previous registrations include Commonwealth Financial Network in Waynesboro, Virginia; Northwestern Mutual Investment Services in Charlottesville, Virginia; Securities America in La Vista, Nebraska; Securities Service Network in Knoxville, Tennessee; and Investacorp in Miami, Florida. He is a registered broker and investment adviser with ten US states and territories: the District of Columbia, Florida, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

According to his BrokerCheck report, Gregg Schiebel has received one customer complaint and has resigned from a former employer.

In 2010 a customer alleged investments made at Gregg Schiebel, while he was employed at Commonwealth Financial Network, incurred a “taxable event as a result of a mistaken cost basis.” The complaint settled for $4,159.

In 1999 Gregg Schiebel was “permitted to resign” from Securities Service Network following allegations related to an “investigation into whether [he] failed to comply with firm policies regarding outside business activities.

FINRA rules dictate that brokers like Gregg Schiebel may not participate in outside business activities without providing written notice to their employer. Specifically, FINRA Rule 3270 states: “No registered person may be an employee, independent contractor, sole proprietor, officer, director or partner of another person, or be compensated, or have the reasonable expectation of compensation, from any other person as a result of any business activity outside the scope of the relationship with his or her member firm, unless he or she has provided prior written notice to the member, in such form as specified by the member.” Brokers who violate this rule may be subject to disciplinary activity.
