Meyer Wilson is currently investigating potential claims surrounding Giovanni
L. Acevedo. These claims allege that Acevedo converted customer funds.
Did you invest with Giovanni L. Acevedo (CRD# 2508321)? Meyer Wilson is
currently investigating potential claims involving this broker.
Acevedo began working with
ING of Des Moines, Iowa in August 2006. In September 2014, FINRA received
a complaint regarding Acevedo. The client alleged that Acevedo had fraudulently
taken $5,000 from her. Without admitting or denying the findings, ING
settled the claim.
In May 2014, another investor brought a claim alleging that Acevedo "wrongfully
manipulated her and her accounts, provided her with negligent investment
advise and/or converted her investment funds to his own use and benefit."
Without admitting or denying, ING settled the claim for $220,000.
On August 12, 2014, Acevedo was discharged from ING Financial Partners.
According to ING, Acevedo did not follow firm policies and consequently
decided that it no longer wished to supervise Acevedo.
A FINRA investigation into these allegations is currently pending. According
to a Wells notice examination filed on January 16 of this year (#20140415290),
FINRA recommended that disciplinary action may be necessary in conjunction
with the following potential violations:
- Conversion of customers' funds
- Failing to disclose two liens and a judgment
