Publicly available records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and accessed on June 16, 2018 indicate that former Florida-based Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network broker/adviser Earle Tingley, who has received a customer dispute, was recently terminated from his former employer in connection to alleged rule violations and is currently not affiliated with any broker-dealer firm. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Tingley (CRD# 4444579).
Earle Tingley has spent 16 years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Wells Fargo Advisors in Winter Haven, Florida (2014-2018). Previous registrations include Wells Fargo Advisors in Lakeland, Florida (2008-2014); AG Edwards & Sons in Winter Haven, Florida (2002-2008); and Wachovia Securities Financial Network in St. Louis, Missouri (2001-2002). He has passed three securities industry examinations: Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination), which he obtained on May 2, 2003; Series 3 (National Commodity Futures Examination), which he obtained on February 4, 2012; and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination), which he obtained on December 19, 2001. He is currently not registered with any state or firm.
According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one customer complaint and one denied customer complaint, and he was recently discharged from his former employer in connection to alleged rule violations.
In April 2018 he was terminated from his position at Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network in connection to allegations he “acknowledged receiving a loan from a client in violation of Firm policies” and failed to notify the firm of such.
In 2008 a customer alleged Earle Tingley, while employed at AG Edwards & Sons, misrepresented material facts in connection to investments in closed-end funds and auction rate securities. The complaint settled with the firm’s repurchase of the securities at par value, for $200,000.
In 2016 a customer alleged Earle Tingley, while employed at Wells Fargo Advisors, “prevented him from trading account and from knowing what investments are in his account” and additionally executed an unauthorized account transfer. The customer sought unspecified damages in the complaint, which was denied.
