Did Joseph Hooper Cause You Investment Losses?

Joseph Hooper, a former representative with Source Capital Group, Inc., of Bowling Green Kentucky, submitted an Offer of Settlement in which he was fined and suspended by FINRA for allegedly engaging in private securities transactions without notifying his member firm. Without admitting or denying FINRA’s findings, Joseph Scott Hooper consented to the sanctions and to the findings that, while serving as Director of Investor Relations for the iPractice Group, Inc., he participated in the sale of iPractice stock and was compensated for his participation in these private securities transactions. FINRA found that Mr. Hooper participated in eight private securities transactions which involved five investors and a total investment value of $500,000 for which Mr. Hooper received $62,500 and over 3.125 shares of iPractice stock as compensation. In violation of NASD Rule 3040 and FINRA Rule 2010, Mr. Hooper failed to notify Source Capital in writing of his participation in these private securities transactions. Consequently, Mr. Hooper was assessed a deferred fine of $5,000, suspended for five months from association with any FINRA member in any capacity, and required to pay $62,500, plus interest, in disgorgement of the commissions he received.
