Another Customer Files a FINRA Arbitration Against David B. White

Our oil and gas securities attorneys have recently written and been monitoring White and David B. White Financial. Another customer has filed a securities arbitration complaint against White. According to White’s most recent complaint, filed in June 2017, the customer alleges that White sold unsuitable investments and also rushed them into signing a settlement. Now, according to the complaint, the customer believes the settlement was not in their best interest.

This brings the Michigan-based broker’s FINRA BrokerCheck disclosure total to twelve (12) with about half them coming in the last five (5) years.

Some of White’s customer complaints allege damages of over $1 million.  Among those complaints is one filed against White in November 2015 that alleges misrepresentations concerning non-traded REITs, oil and gas programs and limited partnerships — many oil and gas investments were structured as master limited partnerships (MLPs).  The customer in that complaint also alleges that high fees were charged, which was the only reason White recommended the oil and gas investments, according to the customer’s complaint.

Five (5) customer complaints have been settled against White.  The settled claims total over $70,000.
