Paolini, on or about January 27, 2017, and while registered with Horner Townsend, was allegedly given $7,000 by a prospective customer for the purported purposes of making an investment, according to the aforementioned AWC.

Paolini allegedly told said customer that he was unsure to whom the check should be made payable, and hence, the customer purportedly left the payee line blank, the AWC notes.

Sam Paolini, while registered with Horner TownSend, was allegedly terminated by Form U5 filed on September 25, 2017, and he has not been registered or associated with a member firm since that time, the AWC reports.

Although Paolini is purportedly no longer associated with a FINRA member firm, FINRA retains jurisdiction over him pursuant to FINRA’s By-Laws, the AWC states.

Finally, one should also note that, according to the AWC, Sam Peter Paolini neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
