In February 2017, Krispeal was suspended for 30 days and sanctioned to pay $2,500 in a civil and administrative penalty and fine after he, “consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he failed to timely and accurately amend his Form U4 to disclose that he was named as a respondent in a securities arbitration that alleged sales practice violations against him.”
Krispeal has been the subject of eight customer complaints between 2007 and 2021, three of which were withdrawn and one was denied, according to his CRD report. The most recent complaints are regarding:

The complaint was regarding unspecific securities and took place while Krispeal was registered with Legend Securities, Inc.
June 2020. “Unsuitable investments.” The customer is seeking $650,000 in damages and the case is currently pending. The case was regarding equity OTC, common and preferred stocks, and options and took place while Krispeal was registered with PHX Financial, Inc.
Pursuant to FINRA Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities during the time the broker is registered with the firm. Therefore, Phx Financial, Inc. may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Krispeal’s customers.
