READ THIS HORROR STORY ON HOW I GAVE A LIST OF EMPLOYEES UP AND LOST MY MONEY. In February 2004 I contacted Stifel Nicolaus BASED ON A REFERRAL FROM THE SBC CWA IN St Louis, also DBA as Sheri McCann. , Stifel Nicolaus JEFFERSON, DBA ADVANTAGE FINANCIAL LLC. A VARIABLE ANNUITY Dealer ?? Located in Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas LA, Detroit New York, Atlanta, Florida to purchase $100,000 worth of VARIABLE ANNUITYas an investment. I gave them a list of company bargained for employees after I retired and after I befriended a broker named Mark Gierl and Amanda Rayney. They bought me golf weekly for a month. I also spoke or received mail and gifts from Steve McGee, Rex Richardss Tom Getty, Charles Hartman Rich Collom, Brent (worked at Wachovia or smith barney)? Many other people probably have the same investment. Amanda promptly talked me out of buying investments in a high risk Annuity. She told story after story of how people make vast amounts of money with these products. .. Instead of sending her $100,000 I sent her $500,000. She was ordered at least 6-8 times to invest $100,000 at a time in increments to reduce risk. I knew what I was doing. A few days after the account was opened we decided to make the first $100,000 purchase of VARIABLE ANNUITY . She was also carefully instructed time after time to only buy when it was low NOT when it was high. Ms. Rayney defied orders and spent $230,284 and I was charged a $14208.00 in commissions from Jackson Annuity company. She failed to buy low and then proceeded to call everyone I know from the list I gave her.THE BBB REPORTS, FINANCIAL STRATEGIES REP THREATENS ELDERLY, TERMINALLY ILL MAN SOLICITING INVESTMENT MONEY!ARTHUR WRITES I WAS TALKED INTO BUYING SILVER THROUGH THE FINANCIAL STRATEGIES MARGIN ACCOUNT AND LOST MY SHIRT, I HAVE NEVER DONE BUSINESS WITH THEM AGAIN.
