Over his career, Presley has been the subject of at least eight customer complaints and two regulatory actions.
The most recent complaint was filed in August 2015 alleging that Presley breached his duties to his clients in illiquid investments including oil and gas and non-traded REIT’s. The customer alleged $117,000 in damages. The claim has been settled. Many of Presley’s other customer complaints similarly allege damages resulting from the sale of alternative investment products.
