Jan Berkowitz loses his # 2 "front" man, Robert Sachs, unlicensed fund raiser who was sentenced to 15 years in prison on May 9, 2011 in Trenton NJ.

Sachs was hired by Berkowitz to act as a "bufffer" between widow's endowments and himself. Sachs brought in plenty of money for Berkowitz and now the sh*t is just about to hit the fan for Berkowitz who is still out there trying to get his hands on money or assets no matter who tries to stop him.

U.S. Economy will not even remotely begin to recover until Berkowtiz is secured safely behind bars. Its not enough to just lock up the # 2 man. You have to lock up the # 1 man as well as his flesh eating lawyers.

AUTHOR: Tom Clark - ()

I have also been scammed by a financial advisor. I have some advice that you should follow if you gonna engage witha finanical advisor.

Make sure your adviser is legit. If you're looking for an adviser, ask friends and relatives for recommendations—but don't stop there. A scary truth is that anyone can call himself or herself a financial planner or adviser, so it pays to check with national organizations that issue credentials. They include the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers, the Financial Planning Association, and the Certified Financial Board of Standards. Each offers a searchable database with contact information for planners in each state. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has a list of CPAs who've earned the personal financial specialist designation.

Dig deep. Put on your gumshoes and find out how long the adviser has been in the business. Ask to see his or her ADV Form, Part II, which a planner files with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It contains information about the adviser's background, services, and fees. Check for complaints filed though your state's securities regulator
