Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating George Jones Lincoln for the following allegations from his Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) BrokerCheck report: “Lincoln omitted or altered material information in his books and records in a way that suggested his clients were more aggressive investors than their circumstances and stated risk tolerances actually demonstrated. Lincoln recommended sector funds to customers in concentration levels that were unsuitable based on his customers’ circumstances and investment profiles as reflected in the fact finders, thereby raising the customers’ risk profile beyond the customers’ state risk tolerance.” For these, FINRA fined him $70,000 and suspended him from the industry for 10 months. Jones’ former firm, CCO Investment Services Corp., was fined $120,000 based on their inability to supervise Lincoln.
Lincoln was registered with Century Investors of America from January 1991 until Janiuary 1991, CUNA Brokerage Services in Waverly, Iowa from January 1991 until September 2005, and CCO Investment Services Corp in Rutland, Vermont from November 2005 until Janauary 2014. He has three customer disputes against him, one of which is currently pending. He is not licensed within the industry.
