you are interested in letting Investor’s Watchdog
help you protect your savings because your current
or former stockbroker mistreated you. Perhaps
you are even one of the Americans each year who
lose money to outright stockbroker fraud. Whatever
the level of misconduct by the broker or his firm,
Watchdog wants to know about it. If you need
legal representation and want a referral, IW will
give you the contact information for an attorney
who handles securities cases in your area.
Beyond protecting your personal
legal rights, though, sharing your impressions
of the broker with Investor’s Watchdog can help
untold numbers of future investors. Brokerage
firms often insist that settlements with complaining
customers include a confidentiality clause prohibiting
the customer from talking about his bad experience.
Of course, that secrecy leaves the broker free
to mistreat the next customer in the same way
he mistreated you.
Investor’s Watchdog is putting
a stop to the securities industry’s culture
of silence, and you can help. By telling Investor’s
Watchdog about your experience with your current
or former broker, you will have an impact on
that broker’s IW Broker Safety Rating, Later
customers who otherwise may have fallen for
the same assurances of trustworthiness that
the broker used with you, will instead see a
Broker Safety Rating that should warn them to
be skeptical of the broker’s sales pitch and
to look elsewhere for a trustworthy adviser.
As thanks for helping future investors
and helping Investor’s Watchdog serve them better,
Investor’s Watchdog will apply a $10 discount
your first IW order.
