Thereafter, on February 21, 2001, a customer initiated investment related written complaint that pertained to Bogart’s activities was resolved for $25,237.23 in damages based upon allegations that Bogart effected equities purchases in the customer’s investment portfolio even though the customer asked Bogart for bonds to be purchased. On December 11, 2001, another customer filed an investment related written complaint that concerned Bogart’s conduct in which the customer sought $78,280.00 in damages supported by accusations of unsuitable investment recommendations and inappropriate stock transactions having been executed in the customer’s managed account.

Further, on October 22, 2002, a customer initiated investment related written complaint involving Bogart’s conduct was settled for $45,000.00 in damages supported by allegations that mutual funds transactions effected in the customer’s individual retirement account were neither suitable nor authorized by the customer.
