Samuel Ingram: Oil & Gas Complaint Against Ex-JW Cole Advisor
A recent investor complaint against former Tempe, Arizona financial advisor Samuel Ingram (CRD# 2622115) alleges six-figure damages connected to an oil and gas investment. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that Mr. Ingram is not currently registered as a broker or an investment advisor, though he was most recently registered with JW Cole Financial.
Mr. Ingram’s BrokerCheck report discloses one investor complaint. Filed in October 2022, it alleges that as a representative of JW Cole Financial, he sold an oil and gas limited partnership that “was not researched and vetted,” which in turn contributed “to loss of principal invested.” More information about FINRA’s suitability rule, which requires brokers to recommend investments and strategies that are aligned with an investor’s background and objectives, is available here. The pending complaint alleges damages of $100,000.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Samuel Ingram holds 25 years of securities industry experience. Most recently based in Tempe, Arizona, he was a representative of JW Cole Financial from 2003 until 2022. His registration history also includes Jonathan Roberts Financial Group (Tampa, Florida; 2000-2003) and 1st Global Capital Corporation (Dallas, Texas; 1996-2000). His credentials include the passage of four securities industry qualifying exams: the General Securities Representative Examination, or Series 7; the Securities Industry Essentials Examination, or SIE; the Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination, or Series 63; and the Uniform Investment Adviser Law Examination, or Series 65. He is not currently licensed as a broker or an investment advisor with any state or firm. (Information current as of December 21, 2022.)
