Any stories here about being burned with the Stanford Group/Allen Stanford fiasco of a few years ago? We had bought a rather large amount of gold on a recommendation from Hannity a very short time before it all broke loose. It quickly turned into a nightmare because everything was frozen immediately by the SEC. Then there were claims to file... and receivership issues. Yeah, nightmare. Happy ending though, because since it was an order for merchandise that was already paid, we did receive it after a judge freed those assets (albeit a long time later.) I'm not 100% sure, but I'm thinking that investors in other areas of Stanford Financial Group didn't come away unscathed. Allen Stanford will not be getting out of prison until well after all the people who were cheated are dead... his release is scheduled for 2105.
