World Financial Group - Buyer BEWARE!

Notice how almost all customer complaints against WFG agents get denied?

In the review yesterday, How WFGers RIP YOU OFF!, the author talks about looking up WFG agents in Finra’s BrokerCheck.

If you think your WFG agent lied to you and cheated you, you may be forced to *arbitrate* to try to prove it. You don't want arbitration. You don't want to give up your right to a jury trial. Arbitration usually favors the company. Arbitration very often stacks the deck against you. It often denies you justice.

Before you sign or pay anything, demand your WFG agent show your the contract language that spells out how you resolve disputes. If it forces you to arbitrate, that’s bad news for you. If it forces you to *individually* arbitrate--i.e. The contract bars you from joining a class-action suit--that’s even worse news.

It’s very important you know your rights.

Good luck. Make make sure you do your homework up front. *Before* you sign or pay anything.
