His last registration was with Herbert J. Sims & Co. Inc. (CRD #3420) of Ellijay, GA, and was with them from 2002 until January of 2018. His previous employers include Ryan, Beck & Co., LLC. (CRD #3248) of Florham Park, NJ, Gruntal & Co., L.L.C. (CRD #372) of New York, NY, and A. F. Best Securities, Inc. (CRD #14335) of Coral Springs, FL.  No current employment information is available. He began in the industry in 1980.

Green is the subject of two current disclosures, both customer disputes that are similar and listed as “pending.” The first was filed on 05/09/2018 by a customer who accuses Green of unsuitability, investing in risky oil and gas securities and churning, causing economic losses. No damages are specified.

The second customer complaint alleges “unsuitable investments, churning, breach of fiduciary and excessive trading” during 2013. In this case, the customer is requesting damages of $375,000.

Silver Law Group is investigating former Boca Raton, Florida-based Herbert J. Sims & Co. Inc. (CRD# 3420) (“HJ Sims”) broker Larry Charles Wolfe (CRD# 502361) after five (5) customers filed complaints alleging unauthorized trading.

According to Wolfe’s FINRA BrokerCheck report, Wolfe has thirteen (13) disclosures.

Allegations of churning, unsuitability and unauthorized trading against Wolfe date back to a 1991 FINRA arbitration award and a 2001 settlement.  The allegations then ramped up starting in 2010.
