Have you lost money with financial advisor Diane Maddox of Investors Capital and Cetera Advisors?
We are investigating allegations made against Diane Maddox of Derry and Salem, New Hampshire, who was recently the subject of a complaint made by the New Hampshire Securities Bureau. New Hampshire alleged that Maddox recommended that a couple purchase an investment in an “alternative investment” in 2013, and that she failed to update a suitability form to properly effect the transaction. The complaint also references United Development Funding IV (UDF) as part of the settlement. Maddox was ordered to pay a settlement to the couple, along with $10,000 in investigation costs.
