InsuranceInsurance Fraud

1

Mr. Mulein straying from everything that is written on his website is just a fraud and that too a very clever fraud who knows well how to steal money from innocent people who trust him. Under the garb of providing free insurance to his clients, Mr. Mulein takes a good amount of money from his clients, which is supposed to be the first year premium and logically would be repaid to the client. However, the money is never returned and the unsuspecting clients lose all their money. In this process, not only the client loses his money but also the insurance company is befooled too as they expect the regular premium, which is never received.

    FRAUD ALERT. Beware of Daniel Charlier of World Financial Group aka TransAmerican. Charlier employs unlic'd representatives to solicit insurance in the state of Ca. I have personally seen this 1st hand last month and seems that this is a common practice for Criminal Charlier and his large crew of criminal thieves like him. When I called the state of Ca Insurance Dept they were well aware of Daniel Charlier and his practices within his organization.

    @John Murphy Jr. HAHAHAHHAHA and almost 6 years later Dan partners up with Jay Z, Tony Robbins and Grant Cardone to bring financial literacy to the next level. My guess is John Murphy is another victim of his weak personality. And he is probably very ignorant on a subject. Transamerica owned by 600Billion company Aegon that runs for over 100 years now. So when you say smth like FRAUD -think again and do your homework.

    I could not agree with you more. I have met this guy personally in California with my former girlfriend who also is one of his counterparts within his criminal enterprise. Not to worry all of those creeps will have their licenses pulled and some will end up in prison. I am told that the FBI and California department of insurance is heavily investigating these people and many arrests will be taking place in 2013.

Daniel Charier is a real low life ### ###. Little does his wife know that when he is out smoking his cigars he is really banging some fat ugly white chicks. This guy is the biggest scammer in World Financial Group. The fraud he and his organization put out is in such large #s. The depart of Insurance is on this guy as well as the S.E.C. It is just a matter of time before this monkey gets put in his cage where he belongs.

    Hope that day comes soon. I look forward to it and so does all the people who he has ###ed over

    Let facts speak for themselves...
    LiSERT Analysis: Indexed Universal Life (IUL) Insurance
    What is indexed universal life insurance?

    IUL is also known as equity indexed universal life (EIUL)
    IUL is a type of permanent life insurance policy (i.e. not term insurance) that provides both a death benefit to named beneficiaries and living benefits to the policy owner in the form of policy (or cash) values
    What is unique to IUL is the growth of the policy values is linked to the positive performance of one or more securities or market indexes, like the S&P 500 Index, while NOT exposing the policy values to the downside risks of the markets
    Whereas variable universal life (VUL), which also has policy values linked to securities, has both unlimited downside and upside exposure to the linked markets, IUL provides downside protection from market risks (in the form of a guaranteed minimum annual return) in exchange for a capped upside of any positive annual market returns
    IUL policies combine the long-term growth potential of equity or other markets with the security of a traditional life insurance contract
    Many people who “drink Wall Street Kool-Aid” are surprised that life-insurance-company-based products are a significant part of the net worth of some of the savviest and wealthiest institutions and individuals in the world:

    According to a New York Times (Charles Duhigg) article published in 2006, “Hedge funds, financial institutions like Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank, and investors like Warren E. Buffett are spending billions to buy life insurance policies” on the secondary market
    According to government disclosures, Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, has the majority of his liquid net worth on deposit with life insurance companies (not deposited in banks or invested on Wall Street) – Medical Economics 6/19/2009
    The nation’s large banks invest immense sums of their Tier 1 capital reserves (a bank’s most important asset and a key measure of its strength) into permanent life insurance underwritten by major life insurance companies – Medical Economics 6/19/2009
    As of the date of the article, Bank of America, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, US Bancorp and Bank of New York Mellon had more of their Tier 1 capital reserves in permanent life insurance than they did in bank premises fixed assets and real estate COMBINED
    During the economic downturn of 2008-2009, Wells Fargo almost tripled its holdings in permanent life insurance
    So a good question might be: Why do they do that?

    Well, after a brief analysis of the five key elements of any prudent asset, the answer should be clear. These five elements are:

    Liquidity
    Safety
    Expense
    Return Potential
    Tax Efficiency
    Since no one asset is the best in each of these areas, it is important to know the pros and cons of each asset using these five elements as a guide.

    The following bullet points are only meant to highlight some of the pros and cons and are not a comprehensive discussion. In addition, any reference to specific financial products is not a recommendation to buy or sell these products.

    Liquidity

    Though IUL is designed to be held long term (at least 10 years), it offers significant liquidity
    Of all other long-term, tax-favored assets (i.e. IRAs, 401(k) plans, annuities) it provides the most liquidity without a tax penalty
    IUL is the only long-term, tax-favored asset used as collateral for a bank loan
    Using an annuity or retirement plan as loan collateral, even if allowed by the bank, will trigger a taxable event
    Due to IUL liquidity, banks will even lend money for the purpose of purchasing IUL, using the policy values as primary collateral
    It is not uncommon to have access to 100% of your principle within a few years
    Some IUL policies have a provision for 100% liquidity from the beginning of the policy
    IUL liquidity provisions include either withdrawals from the policy values or loans from the insurance company using the policy values as collateral
    According to a Medical Economics article on 6/19/2009:
    John McCain used the liquidity of his large life insurance policy to initially finance his campaign
    Doris Christopher used the liquidity of her life insurance policy to launch Pampered Chef—that she eventually sold to Warren Buffet for $900 million
    J.C. Penney used the liquidity of his large life insurance policy to begin resuscitating his retail stores after the crash of 1929
    Safety

    An IUL policy that is properly structured and funded with a highly-rated insurance company should be one of the safest assets to hold in a portfolio
    IUL is sold by some of the largest and highest-rated insurance companies in the world
    Unlike banks, life insurance companies do not use excessive leverage
    If a bank has $1 million on deposit, it can lend out up to $10 million
    This “excessive” leverage is a reason many banks are failing
    If a life insurance company has $1 million on deposit, it can lend out no more than $920, 000, meaning life insurance companies are 100% reserve-based lenders, making them stable institutions in down economies
    According to the Medical Economics article, during the Great Depression, when more than 10, 000 banks failed, 99.9% of consumers’ savings in life insurance remained safe with legal reserve life insurance companies
    IUL, since it is a life insurance CONTRACT, contractually guarantees that though the policies values are linked to various markets, there is a guaranteed minimum return in case of negative markets
    In addition, all positive interest that is credited to policy values is protected from future market losses
    In many states, life insurance policy values are protected from creditors (lawsuit, bankruptcy) by state law
    There are two main risks of losing money in an IUL:
    Not properly funding the policy
    This risk can be mitigated with proper structuring (i.e. minimum death benefit per $ of premium) and source funding (i.e. using assets, instead of cash flow, to fund the policy)
    Cancelling the policy in the early years
    This risk can be mitigated with proper planning and ongoing policy servicing
    Expense

    There are six (6) main expenses associated with IUL:
    Cost of insurance (also known as mortality charges)
    Monthly expense to pay for death benefit
    Premium expense (also known as premium tax)
    One-time percentage (usually 5%) of each paid premium which is paid by the insurance company to the government
    Policy expense (also known as monthly expense)
    Monthly expense to cover insurance company expenses
    Cap-rate enhancement expense
    Expense to purchase more market-index upside
    Loan interest
    Subtracted from policy values if not paid in cash
    Surrender charge
    Possible back-end expense charged if policy is cancelled before a certain year (usually 10-15 years)
    Many IUL companies offer policy riders that waive the surrender charge
    From an expense perspective, since IUL is “front-loaded” and typically has a surrender charge, it usually does not make sense to purchase IUL as part of your short-term portfolio (i.e. less than 10 years)
    Purchasing IUL requires a long-term approach—much like the mindset you take when deciding to purchase a home versus rent a home (i.e. short-term pain for long-term gain)
    Due to the number of possible expenses of IUL, it has the reputation with some people of being “expensive”, but in and of itself, IUL is neither expensive nor inexpensive—it depends on the policy structure, funding and utilization
    A properly funded, structured and utilized IUL can have a relatively low expense ratio compared to many other assets; conversely, due to non-cash-value-correlated expenses of IUL, not funding IUL properly, or cancelling it in the early years, can lead to a high expense ratio
    To minimize the expense ratio of IUL, you should purchase as little death benefit as possible (see Internal Revenue Code (IRC) §7702) for each premium dollar paid—that way, more money is retained in your policy values
    The expense ratio of a policy can be projected/calculated using the difference between the illustrated (gross) rate and the internal (net) rate of return (IRR)
    For example if the gross illustrated rate of the IUL contract is 8% and the net long-term IRR is 7.6% then only .4% is lost to policy costs (or about 5% of the total return)—which compares favorably to mutual funds and other managed portfolios
    With most mutual funds, the annual expenses that have to be subtracted from the gross return include fund fees, management fees and taxes
    For example, if you owned Fidelity Magellan Fund (FMAGX), according to Yahoo! Finance, the annual fee paid to the fund is 0.59%
    The management fee paid to your advisor could be around 1% (less or more depending on how much you invest)
    Since the fund has a turnover rate of 102%, that means that most of your gains in the fund would be taxed at short-term capital gain rates (i.e. your marginal tax bracket) and have to be paid each year
    Therefore, if the fund grossed 8% (its current 10-year return is less than 1%), then the net after-tax return would only be 3.82%–which means you would lose 52% of “your” return to the fund, your advisor and the IRS:
    0.59% to the fund
    1% to your advisor
    2.59% to the IRS, assuming a 35% marginal federal tax bracket (not including potential state income tax) and taxed at short-term capital gain tax rate (due to high turnover rate of the fund)
    Therefore, with the expenses and taxes associated with the Fidelity Magellan Fund, using the assumptions above, the fund would have to average almost 16% per year to net what an IUL would net with an illustrated return of 8% and an IRR of 7.6%
    So, in this example, would you rather pay 5% of your long-term return to have death benefit throughout the term of the policy (and downside protection from the markets) or would you rather pay over 50% of your return to have no death benefit (and no downside protection from the markets)?
    Again, the expense of an asset is always relative to what you are comparing it to
    Rate of Return Potential

    IUL policy values are linked to various market indexes that allow your policy values to grow up to maximum annual cap rates
    Using long-term historical performances of market indexes, most policies will illustrate future policy value growth based on historical averages of 7%-9%, depending on the index and cap rate
    There are several ways to potentially increase the long-term IRR (net return) of IUL policy values:
    Purchase IUL from companies that have higher participation caps
    Some companies have annual cap rates as high as 20% on their index strategies
    Purchase IUL using premium loans (also known as premium financing)
    This strategy alone can significantly increase the long-term IRR of IUL
    Use fixed participating loans when accessing the policy values
    These are loans where you pay a fixed rate to the insurance company but you still have the upside of the market indexes for your policy values
    One company offers a fixed participating loan that is contractually guaranteed to be 5.3% for the life of the policy
    Use fixed participating loans during your “accumulating” years to purchase appreciating assets like real estate and other investments
    This allows you to have the potential to experience a double positive arbitrage (the difference between what you pay in interest versus what you gain through rate of return)
    You can earn the difference between the loan rate and the IUL index crediting rate, PLUS…
    You can earn the difference between the loan rate and the return on the appreciating asset
    Sell the policy on the secondary market
    During your retirement, if you decide you no longer want or need your policy, you could sell the death benefit (i.e. contract) for more than the policy value
    This would obviously be in your best interest but may not be in the best interest of your beneficiaries
    The secondary life insurance market is what was referenced to earlier that hedge funds, banks and investors like Warren Buffet are involved in
    When a policy on a senior citizen is sold/purchased on the secondary market, it is known as a “senior life settlement”
    In the right situation, it can be a win/win for both the seller and buyer since the seller (you) is getting significantly more than the policy values, while the buyer is purchasing your death benefit at a deep discount
    Tax Efficiency

    IUL can be one of the most tax-favored assets under the Internal Revenue Code (see your tax advisor for specifics regarding your situation)
    A properly structured, properly funded and properly utilized IUL (see IRC §101 and IRC §7702) has similar, but arguably better, tax benefits than Roth IRAs (see IRC §408A and IRC §7701)
    Premiums are paid with after-tax dollars
    Policy value growth is tax deferred
    Policy value profit can be accessed tax free via withdrawals and/or policy loans (that can be paid back via the death benefit at policy maturity)
    Policy death benefits (usually significantly more than policy values) can be received tax free by beneficiaries
    The two main advantages of IUL over Roth IRAs are:
    You can put significantly more money into IUL than a Roth IRA
    IUL has significantly more early liquidity (i.e. penalty-free withdrawals/loans) than a Roth IRA
    However, if a policy is “cashed in”, any profit in the policy would be taxable at your federal marginal tax bracket
    This tax can be mitigated if the policy values are rolled directly to another qualifying permanent life insurance policy (see IRC §1035)
    This is similar to doing a real estate tax-free exchange (see IRC §1031)
    This tax-free exchange option is important since there is a high probability that future insurance policies will have more desirable features, and policy owners may want to “upgrade” their contracts without having to pay a “tax toll”
    Therefore, since properly structured, properly funded and properly utilized IUL:

    Is more liquid than most assets…
    Is one of the safest assets…
    Is relatively inexpensive…
    Has historically-based, above-average return potential, and…
    Is one of the most tax-efficient assets…
    IUL is at the top of my list as a foundational part of a long-term portfolio.

    None of these allegations have any merit at all. Not sure what their personal beef is with Daniel but these people need to get a life. Posted 2013 there would be a lot of arrests. Its now 2015 and not one single arrest. And the FBI and SEC do not play. Ask Bernie Madoff.
