Virginia Broker Accused of Stealing Thousands of Dollars From Elderly Clients

TheftA broker from Virginia has been charged by the SEC for stealing from her clients. Donna Tucker is accused of falsifying billing statements sent to clients, which were in an electronic format that she did not expect them to read. Her clients included legally blind and elderly individuals, which she allegedly stole $730,000 from to purchase personal items such as vacations and clothing.
