September 2019 Employment Separation After Allegations

- Broker Comment: In December of 2018 my friend and client [REDACTED] asked me to cash in her Prudential annuity policies so she could have the pleasure of giving her money to her son since she was suffering from [REDACTED]. I brought [REDACTED] the liquidation forms which we processed together and her four redemption checks from Prudential were sent to her address. [REDACTED] failed to cash the four checks before she died on December 30, 2018. [REDACTED] daughter-in-law called with the bad news and asked me to have Prudential reissue the checks in the name of her estate. Prudential refused me since [REDACTED] had died and I was no longer her representative. I sent in a new redemption form for [REDACTED] and forgot to initial it with my name. I was also suffering from [REDACTED] undergoing [REDACTED] when I did this. This is why I made this mistake. My old firm Securities America dismissed me because of this on 9-16-19.
