Former Merrill Lynch Rep Greg Campbell Allegedly Misappropriated over $1.7 million from Merrill Customers

investment fraud attorneysBetween May 2008 and October 2011, former Merrill Lynch registered representative Greg Campbell allegedly misappropriated over $1.7 million from Merrill customers, according to a recent FINRA Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) currently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and Alan Rosca.

After leaving Merrill Lynch on October 29, 2011, Campbell joined a new firm, wherein Campbell allegedly misappropriated over $500,000 from customers at his new firm, the AWC notes. Next, Merrill Lynch received a written complaint on October 26, 2011 from a customer alleging that Campbell had misappropriated the customer’s funds, the AWC notes.

Merrill Lynch Received Letter from Campbell’s New Broker Dealer

Later, on May 25, 2012, Merrill Lynch reportedly received a written complaint from another customer alleging that Campbell had misappropriated that customer’s funds, according to SEC documents currently being reviewed by attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer.

In the end, Merrill Lynch allegedly failed to amend Campbell’s Form U5 Notice of Termination or otherwise report either written customer complaint until October 26, 2012, one year after the first complaint was received and approximately five months after the second complaint was reportedly received, the AWC reports. Hence, Merrill Lynch violated FINRA Rules, the AWC notes.
