Mickey Long was supposed to be a certified financial planner as well as his partner John Towers. They have since been decertified and soon to be under indictment from the Texas Attorney General. Mickey Long stole $150, 000.00 of my retirement and is running a ponzi scheme. Mickey Long has stolen untold millions from retirees saying he only has safe investments. He claims his brother is the head of a accounting investigative firm "VSR". VSR claims to investigate all publicly traded companies on Wall Street. I am so angry watch out for MICKEY LONG AND JOHN TOWER AT PERSONAL WEALTH ADVISORS. This company will steal your money without using a gun.

    The poster of this complaint needs to be aware of this: https://www.complaintsboard.com/legal-information.html - which, among other things, says this, "In case if a court defines that a consumer complaint constitutes libel or defamation, the mentioned consumer would be held legally responsible for damages to the reputation of the business, mentioned in complaint."

    This post is completely untrue. John did lose his CFP® due to poor due-diligence by a previous broker/dealer. He had the opportunity to renew it, but *chose* not to, because of a philosophical difference with the CFP® Board. This all occurred 9 years ago, not recently. Mickey still has his CFP® Certification and is in no way in jeopardy of losing it.

    The comment about the Texas Attorney General is completely untrue and fabricated.

    Did this person lose money on investments? Probably so. But does that mean that Mickey stole it maliciously? No.

    VSR is a broker/dealer, not an "accounting investigative" firm, and Mickey's brother-in-law is not the "head" of it, he is simply a regional VP. VSR does not, and has never claimed to, investigate "all publicly traded investments on Wall Street" - there is no single firm that does that. VSR goes above and beyond what the SEC and FINRA deem to be appropriate levels of due-diligence on the various investment products they *allow* into their system.

    Mickey has stolen untold millions? Completely unfounded.

    Can my comment be backed up? Not any more than the original post. But do your homework and you'll see that some of the "facts" this original poster claimed are completely untrue, which should call into question the entire comment's veracity, especially given its obvious embellished nature.

    If the first person obviously upset and probably lost alot of money thru Mickey Long and John Tower. Who in their right mind would want to invest with these gangsters. Does anyone have a loose $150k to try it out. If these 'group' is so legitimate why would'nt they at least return the money lost to begin with? That is what my financial advisor did because he is so successful. Why would'nt they do the same if they knew that their poor judgement and absolute greed ruined a family.

    Mickey Long and his den of thieves never returned any money to our family. Since this travisty my daughter and I are living in a shelter. My once promising family was torn apart. Please be aware what these Mickey Long and Associates are capable of. Do not believe a word they say. I am not kidding and I am now a homeless divorced woman with breast cancer that I let go too long. Mickey Long has no conscious and I am sure has ripped off many more people without a second thought.

    Well Mickey Long and his wife Lisa are purchasing Dennis Van Patter business First Financial Services Group over the next 6 years. Mickey and Lisa Long are just as bad as Dennis Van Patter in abusing their staff! Dennis Van Patter, is the worse financial adviser, and is selling his business to someone just as bad! He only cares about the people who have millions of dollars and don't give people with a little the time of day, will not see them unless a requested basis. I have pulled all my money from them, because I just kept losing! So be warned! During their tax season, I was told they couldn't assist me until after April 15th. Dennis Van Patter, moved in with a client Peggy Droemer, while still a client of her ex-husband Tom Droemer! The way Dennis Van Patter talks to his clients, I am surprised he still has any!
