FINRA barred former NYLife Securities rep Heedo "Joshua" Han out of the firm's Los Angeles branch as the result of an investigation into Han's insurance business and a complaint alleging that Han had signed a customer's name on insurance documents and failed to disclose material information related to the relevant products.
The report states that Han failed to cooperate with investigators after they attempted to determine whether Han had engaged in forgery and falsification of documents in an investigation resulting from a customer's filed complaint.
A pending dispute received in February 2015 and available within Han's BrokerCheck report accuses Han of signing the complainant's name on fixed and variable life insurance policy documents and, furthermore, that the customer was not aware of increased costs associated with the products. Alleged damages in this case total $189,550.93.
NYLife records indicate that the firm permitted Han to resign in 2014 after finding that several universal life insurance applications submitted by Han contained "inaccurate information," which the firm then relied upon when processing the inaccurate paperwork.
The AWC states that Han failed to provide requested information concerning the case on at least four separate occasions, leading to FINRA's decision to bar Han from the securities industry.
