  • Source Capital brokers solicited investors in Argyle Securities, another oil and gas investment, using emails that made unfounded promises regarding the performance of Argyle Securities.
  • Individuals involved were Kevin Cline who was manager of one of the Bowling Green branches ,  J.R. Burr who was manager of a second branch and Vincent Christopher and Thomas Gilleland , brokers working for Source Capital in Bowling Green.
