Former Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC broker Terrence Puricelli was recently barred by FINRA after he failed to cooperate with an investigation into allegations of misconduct. In 2016, Puricelli was discharged from Wells Fargo due to concerns about time and price discretion and the inaccuracy of notes in the firm's system, and FINRA started an investigation relating to the events surrounding his termination. The agency barred Puricelli in November 2018 after he failed to provide them with information related to his discharge from Wells Fargo.
Puricelli, who had worked in the financial services industry since 2000, faced three customer disputes between 2008 and 2016. One of those disputes settled in June 2016 and was related to the alleged unsuitable and unauthorized purchases in a customer's IRA. Two other customers complained about the suitability of the unit investment trust and annuity sold to them by Puricelli.
