Summit Brokerage Services Financial Advisor, Victor Rigoni III, Has Pending Customer Complaint, Alleging Fraud And Misrepresentation

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Victor Rigoni III, a Financial Adviser at Summit Brokerage Services in Lake Forrest, Illinois.  Victor Rigoni III has been in the securities industry since 2000 and previously worked at Cambridge Investment Research.   

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Victor Rigoni III is currently the subject of a customer complaint in which the customer alleges “breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and violation of FINRA rules.”  The alleged damages are $125,000 and the matter remains pending. 

Victor Rigoni III has had two other customer complaints filed against him during his career:

  • September 2010:  CLIENTS ALLEGE: 1) PRIOR TO TRANSFER TO NEW FIRM, RR LIQUIDATED HOLDINGS WITH THE PURPOSE OF GENERATING NEW COMMISSIONS WITH NEW FIRM, 2) RR GENERATED EXCESSIVE COMMISSIONS, 3) INVESTMENTS WERE NOT SUITABLE, 4) RR ENGAGED IN UMAUTHORIZED TRADING, AND 5) RR MADE POOR RECOMMENDATIONS.  The matter was settled for $63,742.

THE CLIENT CLAIMS ON 4/23/07, ACCORDING TO STATEMENTS, MUTUAL FUNDS IN THE AMOUNT OF $257,000 WERE PURCHASED IN THE ACCOUNT AND ON 4/27/07 THE FUNDS WERE SOLD AT A LOSS OF $6,183.
