According to his BrokerCheck report, Nicholas DeStefano is the subject of one customer complaint and one financial disclosure.

In 2014 a customer alleged Nicholas DeStefano, while employed at Money Concepts Capital Corporation, breached his fiduciary duty, failed to supervise, acted negligently, breached contract, violated the California Financial Elder Abuse Statute, and unsuitably recommended an investment in a real estate investment trust. The complaint settled for $10,000.
