Former PNC Investments and Wells Fargo Broker Philip Earl Brunson Facing Misconduct Allegations

Meyer Wilson’s stockbroker fraud attorneys are currently investigating allegations that former broker Philip Brunson converted funds from the securities accounts of two Wells Fargo customers. 

Philip Earl Brunson (CRD# 2153418), a former Illinois stockbroker, has been accused by FINRA of converting customer funds. Brunson failed to provide information requested by FINRA in conjunction with its investigation, and according to Brunson’s AWC, he was barred from the securities industry.

From April 2013 through November 2014, Brunson worked for PNC Investments in Decatur, Illinois. According to FINRA reports, PNC discharged Brunson because he had “admitted to violating policy at his former firm by accepting cash gifts from his clients.”

Prior to his employment at PNC, Brunson worked as an investment advisor for Wells Fargo in Champaign, Illinois. One of Brunson’s former clients from Wells Fargo filed a complaint on March 12, 2015 accusing Brunson of misappropriating funds from her investment account on January 16, 2013. The complaint was settled for approximately $43,000.
