Update on Investigation: FINRA reportedly bars James Dunn after 22 Customer Complaints  

According to public records, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) reportedly barred financial advisor James William Dunn Jr. (CRD # 6084258) from the securities industry after he allegedly failed to provide information in its investigation. FINRA’s investigation reportedly stemmed from a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) filed by Dunn’s member firm, Ameriprise Financial, reportedly disclosing that he had voluntarily resigned while under review for “potential violation of company policy related to suitability, unauthorized trades and texting with clients.”  

Dunn reportedly has 22 customer complaints filed against him from 2021-2022, according to his FINRA BrokerCheck Report. Most recently, in March 2022, an investor alleged that Dunn “overconcentrated their accounts in Chinese educational stocks without their knowledge, consent or permission.” The suit reportedly settled for $200,000. Several of the customer complaints allege that Dunn purchased securities in their accounts without authorization.
