In a recent turn of events, investors are alleging that they were sold two promissory notes in 2021 by Darien Bonney, who was then associated with YMML Investors Services, LLC and later with MML Investors Services, LLC. These notes were said to offer guaranteed returns and protection against stock market volatility. However, the claimants assert that they have not yet received their full investments back and only a portion of the interest was paid.
The claimants are alleging that they were sold these promissory notes under the premise that their investments would be safe and secure, with guaranteed returns. The notes were supposed to be protected from any stock market volatility, offering the investors a sense of security. However, they claim that not only have their full investments not been returned, but also only a fraction of the promised interest has been paid to them.
The amount in dispute is a significant $325,000, and the case is currently pending with the identification number 23-02063N11N. It is important to note that Darien Bonney was associated with YMML Investors Services, LLC from 04/02/2007 to 01/27/2022, but is no longer with the company.

- FINRA arbitration offers a panel of impartial arbitrators who listen to both sides of the argument before making a decision.
- It is a binding process, meaning that the decision made by the arbitrators is final and enforceable by courts.
- Investors can recover their losses if the arbitrators rule in their favor.
It is crucial for investors to understand their rights and the process of FINRA arbitration. If you believe that you have been a victim of investment fraud or misconduct, it is highly recommended that you consult with a securities arbitration attorney to discuss your options.
The Importance of Vigilance
This case serves as a reminder of the importance of due diligence when investing. Investors are urged to always check the credentials of their financial advisors and the investment products being offered to them. The FINRA’s BrokerCheck is a free tool that provides information about brokers and investment advisors, which can be invaluable in protecting against potential investment fraud.
Investors should remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the appropriate authorities. In doing so, they can help protect not only their own investments, but also potentially prevent others from falling victim to similar schemes.
As always, the best defense against investment fraud is education and awareness. Stay informed about your investments and the people managing them, and don’t hesitate to seek professional advice if something doesn’t seem right.
