Wells Fargo Discharged Financial Advisor Earle Tingley For Allegedly Taking A Loan From A Client

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Earl Tingley, a former Financial Advisor at Wells Fargo in Winter Haven, FL.  Earl Tingley has been in the securities industry since 2001.

According to public records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on April 27, 2018, Earl Tingley was discharged by Wells Fargo “after he acknowledged receiving a loan from a client in violation of the Firm policies and failing to inform the Firm regarding same.”  Both firm policy and industry regulations strictly prohibit this type of misconduct.

In addition, Earl Tingley has been the subject of two prior customer complaints, including a 2008 complaint alleging “misrepresentation of investment.”  The matter was subsequently settled for $200,000.
