John BrownPublicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and accessed on March 27, 2018 indicate that Texas-based Edward Jones broker/adviser John Brown, also known as Brad Brown, is involved in a pending customer dispute. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Brown (CRD# 1803393).

John Brown has spent 30 years in the securities industry and has been registered with Edward Jones in Portland, Texas since 1988. He has no previous registrations. He has passed three securities industry examinations: Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination), which he obtained on February 13, 2007; Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination), which he obtained on April 6, 1988; and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination), which he obtained on February 20, 1988. He is a registered broker and investment adviser with 31 US states and territories and with four self-regulatory organizations (SROs): FINRA, NYSE American LLC, the Nasdaq Stock Market, and the New York Stock Exchange.

According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one pending customer complaint.

In January 2018 a customer’s executor alleged John Brown, while employed at Edward Jones, refused to accept the decedent’s “four beneficiary designation forms” signed for each of the individuals’ accounts, and “sold stocks, bonds and funds from decedent’s accounts,” placed the proceeds into “at least two new accounts” for a co-defendant’s account beneficiary, and transferred funds from the decedent’s accounts to the co-defendant beneficiary. The customer is seeking more than $374,700 in damages, as well as a temporary restraining order and a temporary injunction, in the pending complaint.
