Should I snitch on girl misusing OBA?

About 6 months ago, I was cheated on by a girl I had been dating for a couple years. NGL, I was and am still devastated. Anyways, she’s a couple years older than me and recently started working at a MM firm doing IB. I was bored and lonely last night so I decided to look her up on Brokercheck. In her detailed report, I noticed an OBA listed as “consulting” activities. I happen to have helped her set up the LLC, helped her with her taxes for it, etc. And what she actually does with the entity is… sell pictures of her feet on foot finder.

Now, I this might be pretty petty; however, I hold a lot of malice and contempt towards her. So obviously what I want to do is sent an anonymous message to a compliance person to tell them exactly what’s going on with her LLC, or at least tell them to check bank statements and stuff like that. This is clearly not compliant anyways, and it’s likely sooner or later she’d get caught anyways. She’ll probably get badly reprimanded or fired since it’s a pretty bad image for the firm + she lied to FINRA.

Can I face any really negative repercussions? She likely won’t immediately suspect me. I would have to imagine I’m safe, especially if it’s anonymous. Let me know your thoughts guys.

I’m sorry that happened, but I will be the voice of rationality and say don’t do it — its not worth it. She might somehow find out or suspect you reported it and retaliate in an even worse way.

If things play out like you noted, she will get caught anyway.
