Edward Jones - North Carolina, Chapel Hill - Best Interest of Client

Posted: 2013-09-16 by    JC LeLand
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
My husband and I invested our inheritance and retirement accounts with Edward Jones when we moved to Chapel Hill, N.C. in 1997. Jerry Bergner was our investment counselor. My husband had dementia (he passed away in 2002) and I was not well-versed in financial matters, including understanding budgeting. Because my husband was not able to help me in many different aspects of our lives, especially financial, I had to rely on Jerry to go over budget details with me. We moved to Florida in 2000 to escape the escalating taxes in Chapel Hill and all of my conversations with Jerry were over the phone. At...

My investment representative told me there was a one time fee when we invested our money with them. This is simply a lie. I asked the guy three times and he lied three times to me. BEWARE OF EDWARD JONES!...

Edward Jones - New Jersey - Investment advice

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 1 votes
Please, please, anyone thinking of using Edward Jones for investments, don't!!!

They lost me a lot, I am luckier than most of the people who have complained. I still have a lot. I got out of there in time. I gave them 2 1/2 years, and not one of the suggested investments came out positive. Fortunately the stocks I made the brokers buy were good, and offset my loses.

Now I see the EJ brokers are pushing Payday loans. Not at all surprised....

Edward Jones - California - Lousy investment company

Posted: 2011-11-08 by    Jack125
Complaint Rating:  80 % with 5 votes
Edward Jones, scam, horrible service, lost me alot of money. I have personally dealt with this company, and let me tell you, if you have any sense, do not let these rip offs handle your funds. Their only concern of course is making money for themselves, regardless of how much you lose. They will tell you they are in business to help you and will get you to buy into any bogus idea they can sell you. You and I live in the real world, businesses are in business for themselves and to make their fat, greedy, wallets bigger. Well, I learned the hard way, I lost all of my money while they got richer. PLEASE,...

Shane Jennings, Investment Representative/Thief- Has misused, mishandled, and embezzled money from my elderly mother. He has taken it upon himself to fire her attorney as soon as all funds were transferred into her account after my fathers death. This man is a crook, who has declared bankruptcy back in 2005... Who would want a man who is financially bankrupt to handle their finances?? This man needs to be dealt with by law enforcement and his license pulled while he spends time behind bars. Elder abuse is the worst crime our society is facing today, please help capture these crooks like Shane and...

Edward Jones - Washington, Marysville - Incompetency

Complaint Rating:  67 % with 3 votes
I had used these guys for many years, and as I was approaching retirement, I wanted to consolodate my holdings. I asked Edward Jones for assistance and they were most helpful; however, for one account, they sent the paper work to the wrong address, which caused a significant delay and cost me nearly $5, 000. When confronted with this, their response was: 'not our problem...' I suggest using another firm. (they did offer to provide me with the information to go to arbitration, but it never arrived.)...

Edward Jones - Florida, Titusville - Arrogance, fraud and elder abuse

Posted: 2011-02-05 by    Sabia
Complaint Rating:  88 % with 16 votes
The broker was given a power of attorney protecting an elder that is not able to make sound financial decisions and it took hell and high water to get her to recognize it.

Rather than respect the POA as she's supposed to according to Florida law, she fought the family tooth and nail until they went to the Florida State Attorney General's Elder Abuse Department.

Move your money to Scottrade or Etrade but get your money out of Edward Jones....

Edward Jones - California, Laguna Hils - Misrepresenation

Posted:    whitefacedsaki88
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
John Cravens of the Laguna Hils office does a poor job. Not monitoring every clients account and not communicating with them daily. No response from customer service from main Edward Jones office. I asked to close my account and they failed to respond and continued to withdraw funds from my bank. I asked to end it before and they ignored my message. Please investigate since there will be other victims....

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 5 votes
Broker summoned me to his office under false pretenses saying he had "a couple of recommendatins for me" on September 3rd, one day after I was in his office with my mother and brother who were transacting business. Mr. Kedley approched me in a threatening manner to say I was not longer welcome in his office and that I had gone to "inappropriate areas of his office" the day before. I was at a total loss and could not understand. He said he saw me crouching down behind his front desk. I was with my mother and brother and asked only to the secretary "what is the market doing"...

Edward Jones - British Columbia, Vancouver - Unauthorized Trade

Complaint Rating:  67 % with 3 votes
The broker, Ed Sernoski, did purchase in one of my accounts, 400 shares of BP without discussion or authorization on May 27, 2010. When I complained, I was stalled off by their compliance department and told to complain to IIROC, which is another delaying tactic. Apparently, IIROC will not order restitution.

I have subsequently filed a small claims action for my losses of about $9, 000. Edward Jones lawyers actually filed a statement of Defence which basically states that I am only complaining because the investment has fallen in value.

In 40 years of investing, nothing...

To any of you out there that might be thinking of investing, stay as far away from Edward Jones as you can possibly get. I invested with them and decided that I needed to close the account. I’ve emailed them, written them, talked to them on the phone for three weeks now and can’t get them to close my account. I’ve lost $3000.00 since I tried to close my account. I’m contacting an attorney now hoping he can do something. Edward Jones seems to be using the Bernie Madoff method of making money....

Edward Jones - Virginia, Vinton - door to door sales in neighbood

Complaint Rating:  53 % with 15 votes
The manager of that office came to my neighborhood going from house to house trying to drum up business.

I would expect Avon reps, deliveries from UPS, Fedex or US mail, family and friends, and even children with school fund raising material etc to show up at my door, but I never expected to see a person representing an investment company show up at our door without an appointment.

In my opinion, this is short of panhandling/socilitation....

Posted:    Robert Charles Casey
Complaint Rating:  30 % with 10 votes
My, Robert Charles Casey's father Billy Robert Casey Died in May 15 1991. I received a fivety thousand dollar inheritance at that time I was twelve years old. There were problems between my dad and my mothers parents, they (mothers parents) felt that my mother should have been entitled to everything which was four hundred thousand all together.

The fivety thousand was diversified in American mutual funds and by June of 1998 it was seventy eight thousand dollars. I added it up and from '91 to '98 the fivety thousand made ten dollars and ninety six cents a day.

Edward Jones fires Putnam for poor performance. I guess they need someone to blame. I know
the economy is bad so I am not blaming anyone. But here is the problem. Edward Jones now has to
rollover my 529 plans into a new fund. We are forced by Edward Jones's hand to move this investment. Wouldn't you think that there should not be sales charges??? Well, I get the welcome packet from the new fund company and we were charged 5.75% for "sales charges". This came to approximately $500.00 of my son's college savings. These investments among others have lost a large...
