From 2007 until Shawn Sapp’s resignation in 2013, Shawn Sapp was licensed with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. According to FINRA’s records, Shawn Sapp resigned from Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. on January 14, 2013. Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. reported to FINRA that Shawn Sapp was permitted to resign following Firm finding of company policy violations related to borrowing money from a client and failure to timely update Form U4.

Subsequent to Shawn Sapp’s resignation from Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., FINRA investigated Shawn Sapp and brought a disciplinary action against Shawn Sapp. Shawn Sapp was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on November 5, 2013. FINRA reports that Shawn Sapp caused a customer’s check, for $10,000 that was made out to Shawn Sapp’s member Firm and was supposed to be deposited into the customer’s brokerage account, to be deposited into Shawn Sapp’s personal account at the Firm. According to FINRA, the customer handed Shawn Sapp, who was the customer’s financial advisor, the check, and after the check was deposited into Shawn Sapp’s account, Shawn Sapp, over the next couple of weeks, withdrew the $10,000 using the funds for personal purposes. According to FINRA, Shawn Sapp repaid the customer by writing a check for $10,000.

FINRA reports that Shawn Sapp failed to appear and provide sworn testimony as requested by FINRA. According to FINRA, during the course of FINRA’s investigation into Shawn Sapp’s activities, FINRA sought testimony from Shawn Sapp concerning the misuse of customer funds, undisclosed business activities, and Shawn Sapp’s failure to timely amend Shawn Sapp’s Form U4 to reflect that Shawn Sapp was charged with a felony. According to FINRA, Shawn Sapp, through Shawn Sapp’s counsel, advised FINRA that Shawn Sapp would not appear for testimony in connection with this matter.
