On October 4, 2014, the SEC instituted settle administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against E*Trade Securities, LLC and G1 Execution Services, LLC. According to the SEC: "These proceedings arise from Respondents' facilitation of thousands of unregistered sales of penny stocks by three institutional customers. During various periods between March 2007 and April 2011, these customers routinely deposited to their E*Trade accounts large quantities of newly issue penny stocks that they had acquired from little known, non-reporting issuers, through private transactions. The customers claimed that these penny stocks were 'freely tradable.' Shortly after the three customers deposited these securities, the customers placed orders for Respondents to sell these securities to the public ('resales') without any registration statement being in effect."
