David Taddeo (CRD 1163829) has been involved in three recent customer disputes that have settled according to records reviewed by FINRA on January 10, 2022.
Customer Settlements Totaled Over $800,000
According to records received from FINRA, a complaint was filed involving David Taddeo’s alleged misrepresentation of variable annuity income benefit riders. That complaint settled for $249,624. Two other complaints filed in 2020 alleged that Taddeo misrepresented aspects of variable annuity contracts, including income benefit riders. Those cases settled for $325,000 and $289,625.
