Termination from Wells Fargo Clearing Services

On April 28, 2022, Wells Fargo fired Stefanie Hurkala following allegations that she attempted to avoid the threshold for a Currency Transaction Report by withdrawing funds and cashing a check in separate transactions. FINRA Rule 3310 requires firms to have anti-money laundering supervisory rules, and reporting large transactions falls under these rules.  

FINRA Rule 2010 requires that brokers uphold high standards of professional honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Many forms of misconduct violate this rule, including violating anti-money laundering rules.
