Daniel Hee Scam & Fraud Report
Regulation S-P generally prohibits financial institutions from disclosing NPI about a
customer unless the customer receives proper notice and opportunity to opt out.
Information is considered to be NPI if it contains personally identifiable financial
information about one or more consumers, including: (1) information a consumer
provides to a broker-dealer to obtain a financial product or service; (2) information about
a consumer resulting from any transaction involving a financial product or service
between a broker-dealer and a consumer; or (3) information a broker-dealer otherwise
obtains about a consumer in connection with providing a financial product or service to
that consumer. NPI includes, among other things, names, addresses, telephone numbers,
social security numbers, and birth dates that are derived in whole or in part from
information provided to a financial institution by a customer.
A registered person who discloses a customer’s NPI, and causes his or her member firm
to violate Regulation S-P, violates FINRA Rule 2010, which requires registered persons
to observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.
Between November 2015 and January 2016, while he was still registered through an
association with UBS, and in anticipation of moving to a new firm, Hee printed account
documents for approximately 100 customers and hand-delivered them to a representative
he planned to work with at the New Firm. The documents he delivered included NPI,
such as social security numbers, birth dates, and account numbers, which was
information provided to UBS by those customers. Hee improperly removed the
customers’ documents containing NPI and gave them to a representative at the New Firm
without UBS’s or the customers’ knowledge or consent. The documents Hee removed
were never uploaded to the New Firm’s system and were not used to recruit any
customers away from UBS.
By virtue of the foregoing, Hee caused UBS to violate Regulation S-P, and in so doing,
violated FINRA Rule 2010.
