Angry pensioners 'lock up' financial adviser

I can just imagine you lot doing something like that
(Not that you're all pensioners mind you!)

Four disgruntled German pensioners have appeared in court accused of tying up, kidnapping and holding hostage their financial adviser.

They allegedly took the man captive after sustaining heavy losses in investments in the US property market.

The adviser was allegedly kept locked in the cellar of a house in Bavaria for four days.

The two married couples aged between 63 and 79 confessed to the deed, but refrained from using the words "kidnapping" or "hostage".

Re: Angry pensioners 'lock up' financial adviser

I binned the 'financial advisers' many years ago, do it myself now, my performance has beaten all of the so called 'advisors' who always have a hidden agenda and don't know anything more than the client this is despite the government trying (and failing) to make it fairer.
