In particular, a customer initiated investment related arbitration claim concerning Tuffy’s conduct was settled for $70,000.00 in damages supported by allegations that transactions were executed in the customer’s account that were unsuitable for the customer, and trades had been effected in the customer’s brokerage account in excessive, unwarranted amounts while Tuffy was employed by Wells Fargo Advisors LLC.

Thereafter, a customer filed an investment related complaint in regards to Tuffy’s activities where the customer sought more than $5,000.00 in damages founded on accusations of mismanagement of the customer’s investment portfolio relating to the over-the-counter equities transactions placed in the customer’s account during the time Tuffy was associated with Wells Fargo LLC.
