Ross Cammarata, also known as Rosario Cammarata, of UBS Financial Services in Fort Lauderdale, has four customer complaints disclosed on his regulatory record, all of which resulted in settlements and payments totaling $277,000 to the customers. Three of the four complaints are from 2015 to present.

That customer complaint was later settled for $25,000.
On December 15, 2015, it was reported on Cammarata’s regulatory report: a “client verbally alleges that the investment strategy to invest all of her IRA into gold was inappropriate for her.” That claim was settled for $28,500.
On July 9, 2015, customers alleged that Cammarata “exercised discretion over their accounts and engaged in an unsuitable investment strategy of overconcentrating their accounts in precious metals exploration and mining stocks, and exchange traded funds.” The customers alleged $807,278.92 in damages. The claim ultimately settled for $75,000.
On September 26, 2000, a customer alleged $148,500 in damages relating to “securities fraud…unsuitability, unauthorized trading, common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence.” The claim was ultimately settled for $39,000.
