William J. (“Bill John”) Paynter, Jr., (CRD#2835535) , a stockbroker who is currently employed by Wells Fargo is the subject of a currently pending customer dispute. He discloses the settlement of two prior customer disputes, one of which involves energy sector investments.

Morgan Stanley settled their part of that case for $35,000. UBS paid $130,000 to settle their part of that claim related to energby investments. During the time period in question Paynter was employed by Morgan Stanley (2/2011-11/2014) and then UBS Financial (10/2014/5/2017).
