Wells Fargo’s Nelson Polun Is Barred By FINRA

Soreide Law Group has come across the FINRA BrokerCheck profile of securities broker Nelson Michael Polun (CRD#: 365420, Bel Air, Maryland), and it shows some concerning information. Specifically, FINRA removed Polun as a securities broker per a February 2021 bar. Not only that, but investors disputed his actions as securities broker. Here’s more on these disclosures.

FINRA Bars Nelson Polun In February 2021

Notably, in February 2021, FINRA permanently barred Nelson Polun as securities broker. This means that he can’t be a securities broker with any securities firm who is a member of FINRA. He can’t undertake certain other actions with FINRA member securities firms either. This decision comes as a result of Polun failing to respond to a request for information. It appears that the regulator requested the information in 2020 but was unsuccessful in getting Polun to cooperate.

Evidently, in a second incident reported on BrokerCheck, FINRA suspended Polun for noncompliance. Wells Fargo Clearing Services discharged him in July 2019.

Wells Fargo Advisors Client Indicates That Polun Misrepresented Investments

Apparently, a Wells Fargo Advisors client disputed Nelson Polun’s actions. Specifically, the client brought this dispute in 2017 regarding Polun’s disclosures on stock trades. The client alleged misrepresentation in connection with the client’s stock transactions. Apparently, Wells Fargo opted to settle this matter through making a payment to the client in March 2017.

Prudential Client Alleges Nelson Polun Made Unauthorized Trades

In a former dispute about Nelson Polun, a Prudential Securities Incorporated client alleged unauthorized trading. It appears that Prudential settled this matter through making an $18,000 payment to the client.
