Venturino is the subject of 8 disclosures, most recently on 9/11/2018. This customer dispute alleges that from 12/24/14 to 02/28/18, he engaged in misrepresentation, unsuitable recommendations and churning. The client has requested damages of $290,359.83. This case is pending.
FINRA filed a disclosure on 7/17/2018 against Venturino for failing to comply with an arbitration award/letter. He was suspended for one day, as his counsel was arranging installment payments; it later became obvious that the claimant had no intention of doing so. Venturino filed a motion to vacate, and FINRA lifted his suspension.
On 2/15/2018, another customer filed a dispute alleging “unauthorized trading and unsuitable investment recommendations,” with no time frame indicated. The client requested damages of $1,280,623.00. This case is also pending.
Aegis Capital has been the subject of several customer complaints and FINRA arbitration claims. If you have received a cold call from Aegis, if Aegis has excessively traded your account, or Aegis recommended a private placement without disclosing the risks, you may have a claim for recovery of your money.
The remainder of Venturino’s customer disputes are either closed or settled.
