October 2020. “Claimant alleges (time frame not specified), his financial advisor made an unsuitable financial plan recommendation an annuity and mutual fund.” The customer is seeking $260,000 in damages and the case is currently pending. The complaint took place while Weith was registered with Wells Fargo Clearing Services, LLC and was regarding variable annuities and municipal debt.
