Investor Dispute

On August 23, 2022, an investor alleged that Toria Scotto misrepresented investing in bonds through Alliance Bernstein as a change in fund managers, and that these bonds could be sold at any time without restrictions. The client sought $110,776.81 but the dispute was denied.

However, investors should be aware that firms can deny disputes without an external review. Investors may be able to recover their losses following a denial by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
