An earlier investor complaint, filed in 2021, similarly alleged that as a SunTrust (now Truist) representative, he recommended an unsuitable investment in a Northstar GIC. In 2022 the complaint reached a settlement of $175,000.

A third investor complaint, filed in 2020, alleged that as a Wells Fargo representative, he misrepresented and recommended an unsuitable investment strategy involving “using a portfolio of securities as collateral for a loan.” In 2022 the complaint reached a settlement of $137,500.

A fourth investor complaint, filed in 2019, alleged that he recommended an unsuitable managed account. The complaint reached a settlement of $8,486.24.
