Victor Dandridge Barred by FINRA after Allegedly Refusing to Provide Documents and Information as Requested Pursuant to FINRA Rules
On January 23, 2017, FINRA staff sent a letter to Victor Dandrisge pursuant to FINRA Rules requesting, among other things, that Dandridge provide copies of certain bank and brokerage account statements, according to the aforementioned AWC presently under review by attorneys Jason Kane and James Booker.
In his Dandridge’s February 10, 2017 response, provided through his counsel, Dandridge allegedly failed to provide the referenced account statements, the AWC notes.
On March 28, 2017, FINRA staff then sent to Dandridge, via his counsel, a second FINRA request letter once again asking for production of certain bank and brokerage account statements, among other things, the AWC notes. In his April 11, 2017 response, provided through counsel, Dandridge once again allegedly failed to provide the referenced account statements, the AWC states.
By allegedly refusing to provide the referenced documents and information as requested pursuant to FINRA Rules, Dandridge purportedly violated FINRA Rules and hence has been barred by FINRA, according to the AWC.
Finally one should also note that, according to the AWC, Victor Dandridge III neither admitted nor denied the FINRA findings.
