Deja JeffersonPublicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on May 17, 2017 indicate that former North Carolina-based MetLife Investors Distribution Company broker Deja Jefferson has been sanctioned by FINRA and barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding Ms. Jefferson (CRD# 6550180).

Deja Jefferson has spent one year in the securities industry and was most recently registered with MetLife Investors Distribution Company in Charlotte, North Carolina (2015-2016). She was previously registered with MetLife Securities in Charlotte, North Carolina (2015-2016). She has passed one securities industry examination: Series 6 (Investment Company Products/Variable Contracts Representative Examination). She is currently not registered with any state or firm.

According to her BrokerCheck report, Deja Jefferson has been sanctioned by FINRA.

In May 2017 FINRA sanctioned her following allegations she “refused to appear for on-the-record testimony requested by FINRA during its investigation into allegations that Jefferson converted funds of her member firm by charging $4,380.24 in personal expenditures and misrepresenting to the firm that the items were office supplies.” For context, FINRA Rules 2010 and 2150 prohibit the “Conversion or Improper Use of Funds or Securities,” clarifying that conversion “generally is an intentional and unauthorized taking of and/or exercise of ownership over property by one who neither owns the property nor is entitled to possess it.” Ms. Jefferson was barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public.
