ORIGINAL POST-February 25, 2016
The Oklahoma Department of Securities suspended the registration of Beth E. Dutoit (aka Beth E. Arthur, Beth Ellen Arthur, Beth E. Du Toit) for six months beginning 1/1/2016 for copying a client’s signature onto a form without the client’s consent.
According to FINRA records Dutoit was ‘permitted to resign’ from Edward Jones, where she was employed in the Norman/Edmond office from 10/2011-5/2015. Edward Jones indicated on the FINRA record that Dutoit’s resignation came during an internal investigation related to her placing client’s initials on a firm document and submitting duplicated signed customer documents.
After leaving Edward Jones, Dutoit went to work with United Planners’ Financial Services of America in May 2015. FINRA records indicate that Dutoit was discharged in September 2015. United Planners indicated on the FINRA record that the discharge was related to forgery.
