AIG Financial Advisor Screwed me, need help.

Discussion in 'Trading' started by traderlong, Nov 21, 2008.

  1. Back in 2007, I requested with my IRA funds be taken out of higher risk funds and be allocated into a basic, interest gaining, CD account (this decision was made due to my own analysis of the markets).

    Interestingly, the advisor resisted giving arguments a long the lines of "you won't keep up with inflation, etc." I had to insist that this was my money and requested that my orders be carried out.

    It turns out that this advisor did not do as I told him/her and kept a bulk of the money in the riskier funds. This was not a misunderstanding of any kind, as I made it very clear what I wanted after he/she resisted.

    Aside from going the legal route what other measures can be taken to make sure that this criminal loses his/her job? What organization can one file a complaint with? SEC? Fraud agency?

    Please help.
