Investigations and Prosecutions of Early Retirement Scams
Looking for fresh capital to invest in order to earn commissions, the early retirement scam has gained popularity among unethical investment advisors and brokers throughout the United States. The Law offices of Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A. is representing retirees who were tricked into taking lump sum retirement payments in lieu of the traditional pension payments they slaved away for many years with promises of greater growth and more income with little or no risk. We are also representing other baby boomers, near retirement, who were falsely promised security and income at an earlier stage in their life by accepting early retirement packages or just retiring early and cashing out their 401(k) plan. According to Attorney Pearce many investors have fallen prey to these schemes through elaborate seminars and financial projections that misrepresent or do not fully disclose all of the assumptions or the underlying projections and/or risks of the investment program.
Representing clients throughout Florida and nationwide.
Too many retirees have elected the lump sum option based on the advice of trusted financial professionals. In these cases, the financial professional improperly recommended the lump sum option because that was the only way that his or her firm could gain control of the retirement assets and generate commissions. As a result, the investors sustained substantial losses and retained our law firm to recover their nest egg.
