EDITOR’S COMMENT:  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THOSE WHO ABUSE THE SYSTEM:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with nasty personal allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking on the PayPal icon at the bottom of the page located at the following URL: more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

I wanted to get the warning out there about (((REDACTED))) to protect your family. Robert B. Vettorel came to our house possing as a financial advisor for (((REDACTED))). Clearly we trusted him and let him into our house. Robert B. Vettorel came the first night as we talked about his services etc. He saw my son playing baseball in the backyard and we began talking about our kids. 

(((REDACTED))) then offered to help my son with hitting lessons, being the great financial adisor from (((REDACTED))) my wife and I trusted him. What a mistake we made, we thought he was a coach. It was all a lie. On the 3rd lesson he began touching my son. at first moderate, helping with batting position and so on to the occasional slap on the butt. Which is normal in sports. 

My son came to me 2 nights ago and talked to my wife and me and said that (((REDACTED))) has been touching him more then jsut a slap when no one is around. So, just to be caution we made the next lesson at our house, where i could monitor from upstairs without being seen. 

I was disgusted and instatly threw him out of our house. He acually tried to touch my son in perverted ways, I was half temped to take him out right there. But I will let the police deal with this monster. I am here warning other parents of (((REDACTED))) and do not let him near your children. He uses Financial advice as his way into your house and head. We have now filed 2 police reports and 4 other parents have come forward. Be careful with this man, keep him away from your children. If you allow him to manipulate you then you lost. (((REDACTED))) is a child molester and he is sick. Please protect your children from these kinds of monsters.

#1 UPDATE Employee

(((REDACTED)))Corporate Response


(((REDACTED)))takes the slanderous complaint made against its employee, (((REDACTED)))l, seriously and would like to set the record straight regarding the malicious accusations made within the complaint.  The Bank and (((REDACTED))) take great pride in our reputation.  We deny the claims in the complaint and we want you to know that facts.

  • Before this fictional complaint, (((REDACTED))) filed criminal (theft) charges with the Sheriff’s Office in Pinellas County, Florida against parties located in the State of Florida.
  • Around the time of the criminal complaint, one of these parties threatened that he and his “partner” would make sure that Mr. Vettorel was, in their words, “blackballed” in the industry.
  • On July 23, 2013, the Bank received an anonymous call, allegedly from one of our current customers, who specifically pointed us to this complaint.  The recorded and verified caller identification number for this alleged customer matches that of the parties that are the subject of the criminal complaint.
  • As you will note from the fictional complaint, the anonymous alleged client of (((REDACTED))) is located in Wesley Chapel, Florida.  (((REDACTED))) is a life-long resident of Pennsylvania and is not currently, nor has he ever met with any clients in the State of Florida.
  • Also claimed in the fictional complaint is that (((REDACTED))) posed as an (((REDACTED)))  (((REDACTED)))el need not “pose” as a financial advisor, because he is a registered (((REDACTED))) with an unblemished record.
  • The fictional complaint also indicates that police reports have been filed as a result of the baseless allegations in the narrative.  (((REDACTED))) has never been the subject of a criminal complaint in any state, let alone Florida or Pennsylvania.

If you continue to have any concerns or questions regarding the slanderous and false allegations made within the original complaint, the Bank invites you to call Michael L. Chaido, Esquire, the Bank’s Senior Vice President/Chief Risk and Compliance Officer.  He can be reached at 724-222-3120.
