 financial scams targeting seniors!

Ms. Stoneman Offers This Advice For "Seniors" -

"keep your guard up and maintain a healthy dose of skepticism!

Elderly couple image

Why are seniors being targeted?

1. Seniors are most likely to have a “nest egg,” which makes them attractive to unscrupulous brokers or financial advisors.

2. Seniors are less likely to report a fraud because they don’t know who to report it to, or fear relatives will feel they are incapable of self-determination.
3. Older people tend to be more trusting than younger adults and thus, statistics show, vulnerable to fraud.

If you feel that you have an unscrupulous broker who is targeting you or other senior investors, contact Ms. Stoneman. She is knowledgeable of potentially abusive practices toward senior investors and is dedicacated to their protection.  

Ms. Stoneman provides older investors non-judgemental support. Through her knowledge of the securities industry and her nationwide reputation of high-dollar restitution and arbitration awards, Ms. Stoneman will restore confidence and financial stability to the senior investor.

RAYMOND JAMES CRIES UNCLE!!

Man CryingTracy represented an 86-year old Tyler, Texas man whose stockbroker at Raymond James moved him out of a fixed income portfolio into complex variable annuities which benefited the broker with hefty commissions but saddled Tracy’s client with illiquid equity risk. The broker also bought and sold annuities causing Tracy’s client to suffer huge surrender charges. Tracy won the arbitration, recovering over $1 million for her client, as well as pre-judgment interest, costs and $250,000 in attorneys’ fees.  Raymond James unsuccessfully appealed the award and it stands today as one of the largest arbitration awards against the firm.
