Financial Advisor Conrad Coggeshall, Packerland Brokerage Services in Scottsdale, Arizona
Are you concerned about investments with Conrad Coggeshall in Scottsdale, Arizona? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim.
According to the Securities and Exchange Commission this week, the regulator has reportedly charged former financial advisor Conrad Coggeshall with allegedly defrauding elderly investors out of $700,000.
Coggeshall purportedly raised $700,000 between April 2017 and May 2018, reportedly telling investors the money would be invested in Business Owners Tax Relief, a New York-based mergers and acquisitions firm that would pay out periodic interest at fixed rates, according to a SEC press release.
According to the SEC, the firm didn’t exist, and Coggeshall allegedly deposited the investors’ money into brokerage and bank accounts of an Arizona company with the same name which belonged to him. He purportedly spent the money on trading losses and personal expenses, including the rent on his apartment, according to the complaint.
Coggeshall also allegedly “used funds from these accounts to make payments to investors, which he falsely represented were interest payments from the New York mergers and acquisitions firm,” according to the press release.
According to his FINRA BrokerCheck report, Coggeshall was reportedly affiliated with Packerland Brokerage Services in Scottsdale, Arizona from 2015 until 2018.
The regulator is seeking a permanent injunction, disgorgement plus interest and civil money penalties against Coggeshall and disgorgement plus interest from Business Owners Tax Relief, according to the SEC.
