Former Wells Fargo Broker John Schmidt Accused of Misappropriation, Theft of Client Funds

FINRA has barred former Wells Fargo broker John Schmidt after he failed to respond to its investigation regarding accusations of misappropriation, misrepresentation, and theft of client funds.

Schmidt was registered with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network in Dayton, Ohio from 2006 to 2017. According to his BrokerCheck report, he was terminated last November over allegations that he participated in unauthorized money movement between clients and misrepresented the value of customer investments.

During the course of his career, Schmidt was the subject of multiple client disputes, two of which have been settled. The three pending disputes all allege that Schmidt stole client money.
