|Trust me, I'm a doctor!|
He mails out flyers with scary lies ("IRA's and 401K's potential 80% Tax Rate" - utter nonsense) that are designed to frighten conservative elderly people into listening to the sales pitch that he gives at local restaurants. It turns out that he was suspended from the investment industry by NASD (now called FINRA) for what the regulator reports as "fraud and deceipt" (sic), "high pressure sales tactics" and "false and misleading sales tactics". He also got slapped with a big fine. This happened while he was working at Merrill Lynch.
Now, this charlatan runs his own firm where he hawks insurance products to vulnerable elderly people. He even offers to come to your event and play his trumpet for you (followed by the sales pitch, of course). Even more amazing, he chooses to put his radio show/infomercial on christian radio stations in order to gain some credibility from that association. Stay away from this guy and his firm!
