Alison Andrews: Barred From the Securities Industry

Alison AndrewsPublicly available records provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on October 14, 2016 indicate that former Missouri-based Allstate Financial Services broker Alison Andrews has been permanently barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public. The securities and investment fraud law firm Fitapelli Kurta is interested in hearing from investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Andrews (CRD# 6196235).

Alison Andrews has spent one years in the securities and was most recently registered with Allstate Financial Services in West Plains, Missouri (2013-2015). She has no previous registrations. She is currently not registered with any state or firm.

According to her BrokerCheck report, Alison Andrews has received one FINRA sanction.

In June 2016 FINRA permanently barred Alison Andrews from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with firms that sell securities to the public following allegations that “after a potential customer’s son was unsuccessful in obtaining copies of his elderly mother’s account statements, Andrews contacted the FINRA member firm where the assets were held and falsely claimed to be the customer’s relative in order to obtain the customer’s account statements.” According to FINRA’s complaint:

“The findings stated that the customer’s son submitted an online complaint alleging that the firm had refused to provide him with his mother’s account statements. Andrews contacted FINRA and attempted to obtain information about the status of the complaint. During the call, Andrews falsely claimed that she was the son’s daughter. The findings also stated that after Andrews and a registered representative at her member firm learned that FINRA was investigating her claim that she was the customer’s relative, they devised a plan to provide FINRA with false information by providing false on-the-record testimony and false written responses to requests for information.”
