On November 17, 2010, a customer initiated investment related written complaint regarding Goslin’s activities was resolved for $77,000.00 in damages based upon allegations that Goslin made misrepresentations to the customer concerning real estate securities.

Another customer initiated investment related civil action brought in Hillsborough County, Florida involving Goslin’s conduct was settled for $30,000.00 in damages supported by accusations that Goslin breached his fiduciary duties, effected securities transactions in the customer’s account that were not suitable, and made misrepresentations to the customer concerning oil & gas products. Civil Action No. 12-000181 (May 14, 2013).

Moreover, a customer complaint relating to Goslin’s activities was resolved for $36,000.00, in which the customer alleged breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, negligence and unsuitable investment recommendations of real estate security and oil & gas products. Afterward, a customer initiated investment related arbitration claim regarding Goslin’s conduct was settled for $7,500.00 in damages founded upon accusations that Goslin made unsuitable investment recommendations to the customer concerning private placements. FINRA Arbitration No. 13-03181 (Mar. 6, 2014).

Another customer filed an investment related arbitration claim pertaining to Goslin’s activities, where the customer requested $605,450.49 in damages based upon allegations that Goslin neglected to conduct an adequate suitability analysis concerning real estate securities, and made misrepresentations and omissions to the customer about investing. FINRA Arbitration No. 15-02776 (Oct. 29, 2015). Goslin is the subject of another arbitration claim in which the customer has sought $185,000.00 supported by allegations of fraud and suitability.
