Daneil J. Trolano, a former Prudential planner and insurance agent from East Hanover, N.J., was disciplined by CFP Board for allegedly defrauded nine clients out of a total of $1.9 million, which he then used for online gambling, according to the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General.

In March, CFP Board permanently revoked Trolaro’s right to use the CFP certification marks. The board’s action came at the end of a lengthy investigation by other authorities. Trolaro admitted to stealing money from clients between June 4, 2008 and Feb. 12, 2010, according to the state attorney general’s office. The amounts stolen ranged from $46,000 to $910,000.
