Scottsdale, Arizona financial advisor Rick Shaw (CRD# 1870018) has received multiple investor complaints alleging that he recommended unsuitable investments in real estate and oil and gas products. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is currently registered as a broker and an investment advisor with Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation.

Mr. Shaw’s BrokerCheck report discloses 10 investor complaints. One of the most recent, filed in February 2024, alleges that as a representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors, he sold an unsuitable oil and gas investment. The pending complaint alleges damages of $1.5 million.

A second investor complaint, also filed in February 2024, similarly alleges that he recommended an unsuitable oil and gas product while a representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors. The pending complaint alleges damages of $25,000.
