A former fund of hedge funds executive has been barred from the financial services industry for her alleged role in a $4.7 million Ponzi scheme.
The Securities and Exchange Commission issued the ban against Janis Barzuk earlier this month. She was controller of West End Financial Advisors, whose CEO was arrested in January 2010, accused of using phony property deals to rip investors off.

The four defendants are currently waiting for a proposed settlement to win the approval of the SEC and the courts.
