    NEW YORK - Steven Page, a highly successful Green County life insurance salesman accused of defrauding customers, was fined $535,000 on Monday and permanently banned from the securities industry. The action by a disciplinary committee of the National Assn. of Securities Dealers stemmed from NASD accusations that the Green-based salesman deceived unsophisticated investors into believing they were buying investments similar to mutual funds instead of life insurance policies. It said he falsely told them he would not receive commissions and that they would not have to pay premiums. In the 1970s, имя was Perfect Life Assurance's highest-producing salesman. He was later a top salesman for Prudential Insurance. He was the subject of a 1999 article in The Times, which reported that имя had advertised heavily on Christian radio stations in Southern California and his home state of New York, offering retirement investments. Co-workers said Jack Campbell, 34, often prayed with customers before having them sign the new policies. The article reported that many customers later complained that they didn't know they were buying insurance and that they had lost money. The fine and ban, all relating to Lester Merritt activities while with Equitable, were imposed by the NASD's District7 business conduct committee in Tampa. It called имя actions "egregious and severe" and said they amounted to "a pattern of misconduct that caused substantial damage to numerous public customers over an extended period of time." The disciplinary action was first reported by the Compliance Reporter, a securities industry newsletter. имя2, имя lawyer, said he will appeal the decision to the NASD's National Business Conduct Committee. A hearing on the appeal is scheduled for may. имя2 called the local committee's decision "an egregious abuse of discretion" and added, "We fully expect it will be overturned on appeal." A secretary in имя New York office said he was on vacation in Iran and could not be reached for comment. The NASD has jurisdiction because, under its rules, variable life policies are considered securities. Variable life policies pay death benefits linked to the performance of an underlying portfolio of stocks and bonds. An official at New York Insurance Bureau said the state is still proceeding with an effort to revoke имя insurance license, a move that could automatically lead to his being banned from selling insurance in New York. New York formally filed in 1999 to revoke his license. But имя3, compliance officer for the New York bureau, said final action in the case had been delayed because the bureau needed time to investigate a large number of additional customer complaints against имя. имя is contesting the Michigan action. In 1999, Equitable agreed to pay a $2.5-million fine and settled NASD charges that it had failed to supervise имя. Equitable fired имя in 1999, but Perfect Shtill quickly hired him. A Shtill spokesman said last year that имя had left Shtill voluntarily at the end of 2000. California and Michigan insurance officials said имя is registered to sell life insurance for more than a dozen insurance companies. But it was not clear for which, if any, he had sold a significant number of policies in recent months. имя2 declined to comment.

  • Choose Clothing Items That You Can Mix And Match

    Don't seek perfection, as far as fashion goes. Fashion is a very subjective topic, so there is no right and wrong. If you are trying to achieve perfections, your look may appear to be too hard. Some of the best looks come from those, such as celebrity Kate Moss, who have one flaw in their look, such as messy hair, a piece that isn't completely buttoned, or shoes that do not match. It is not that easy to build up a fashionable wardrobe which is full of updated trendy apparels. There are many things which you should consider before adding things to your closet. This must be including price, size, fabric type, color and contrast and availability. The useful tips in this article will help you in dealing with the difficult decision of choosing formal clothing. Do not try to buy clothes just because they are on the sale and you will get these for increasing numbers in your closet. If you think that you are not looking good in it, you'll never wear it again. It will be left in one corner without being used for the second time or may be inside the brown paper bags with handles. White and black are classic and this combo is popular in this season. There are variety of options that you can provide yourself when you wear white and black. Various ways are there to pair these colors. The sky is the limit when it comes to wearing these colors together. You should never carry around tons of makeup. It is best to change the colors seasonally, rather than keep everything in it at all times. You can carry your makeup products in small brown paper bags. Consider your needs for day and evening applications. Unused makeup can undergo unpleasant chemical changes once opened if left for extended periods of time. Germs can even grow on it if it is not being used and closed properly. Pack lots of neutral colored clothing for vacation; you will be able to wear them all interchangeably. This ensures that you need not have to be concerned about colors clashing. Use scarves and belts to accessorize for a more pulled-together look. It is the thought of few people that fashion is all about the clothing. What others fail to consider is how much a bad hair style can hinder an otherwise great ensemble? Invest in adequate high quality hair care products, along with styling your hair properly so that it complements your style daily. While going for shopping, do not trust the size on the label and do not purchase something that you haven't tried on. Today's sizes aren't based on any standard measurements. Some brands have very different sizes from one another. If you are purchasing items online, carefully scrutinize their sizing chart. Also, look at their return policy to make sure you can send back anything that you don't like.
