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
- Providing false information
- Failing to disclose two liens and a judgment
