Publicly available records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and accessed on February 2, 2018 indicate that former Virginia-based Thompson Davis & Company broker/adviser Victor Dandridge has been sanctioned by FINRA and barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with a broker-dealer firm. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding Mr. Dandridge (CRD# 5884409).
Victor Dandridge has spent four years in the securities industry and was most recently registered with Thompson Davis & Company in Richmond, Virginia (2012-2016). He was previously registered with T3 Trading Group in New York, New York (2011). He has passed two securities industry examinations: Series 66 (Uniform Combined State Law Examination), which he obtained on March 2, 2012, and Series 7 (General Securities Representative Examination), which he obtained on February 16, 2012. He is currently not registered with any state or firm.
According to his BrokerCheck report, he has received one FINRA sanction, one criminal conviction, and one pending customer complaint.
In November 2017 FINRA sanctioned him following allegations he failed to provide requested documents in information connected to a FINRA investigation into allegations he diverted customer funds from accounts they held at his firm and into accounts and businesses which he controlled. He was indefinitely barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with a broker-dealer firm.
In 2017 he was charged in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia with wire fraud and bank fraud. He pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 84 months in prison plus three years of supervised probation. He was also ordered to pay restitution to affected parties totaling more than three million.
In 2016 a party of customers alleged Victor Dandridge, while employed at Thompson Davis & Company, misappropriated funds, breached his fiduciary duty, breached contract, committed fraud and acted negligently. The customers are seeking unspecified damages in the pending complaint.
