Dance: On December 24, 2002, a customer initiated investment related written complaint involving Dance’s conduct was settled for $20,000.00 in damages supported by accusations that the financial advisor placed technology stock trades in the customer’s account that were not appropriate for the customer in consideration of the customer’s objectives for investing and age.
