Eddie Basora has spent twelve years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Merrimac Corporate Securities in Altamonte Springs, Florida (2008-2014).

In December 2016 Eddie Bascora was named in a FINRA complaint alleging he willfully failed to timely amend his Form U4 to disclose a felony charge and a nolo contendere plea. According to the complaint: “on three occasions, Basora failed to appear for FINRA requested on-the-record testimony without having been excused by FINRA, and to date has not contacted FINRA staff to reschedule the testimony. Basora’s failure to appear and testify as requested impeded FINRA’s investigation and prevented FINRA from completing its regulatory responsibility to fully investigate potential rule violations, including those for failing to timely update his Form U4 to disclose a federal tax lien and three bankruptcies.” The complaint remains pending.
In 2010 the Internal Revenue Service filed a tax lien totaling $12,622.48 against Eddie Bascora. The lien remains outstanding.
