AWC/2008013810201/July 2010

Daniel took confidential customer information, including social security numbers, upon her departure from a member firm and used the information to solicit business at her new member firm. As a result of Danielís former firm findings, her new firm conducted a review of her files that revealed that she had retained copies of or originals of her former firmís account documents.

Daniel responded falsely to a FINRA request for information pertaining to the matter, but later acknowledged to FINRA that she had provided false information after being confronted with copies of documents she had retained.
