William H. Merriam IV Barred from Securities Industry by FINRA after Broker Forgery Allegations

Former Florida-based broker William H. Merriam IV (CRD# 5222110) is accused of forgery while he was with Merrill Lynch in Jacksonville, Florida. Merrill Lynch allowed Merriam to voluntarily resign over accusations that he forged customer signatures on account documents.

FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) barred William Merriam from the securities industry effective Aug. 18, 2017 after Merriam failed to respond to FINRA’s investigative inquiries of the forgery allegations, according to a recent BrokerCheck report.

William H. Merriam was with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated from March 2014 through January 2017.

When a broker forges a signature to falsely represent consent of a transaction without the knowledge, authorization or consent of the customer, the broker and the broker’s firm can be held accountable. If you feel you have been a victim of broker forgery or any other type of stockbroker misconduct by William H. Merriam IV or any other broker, please contact Meyer Wilson for a free consultation today.
