What are Financial Red Flags?

As you approach those retirement years, I know how stressful it can be. You’re in, what we call, that retirement Red Zone, which is maybe 5 to 10 years away from retirement. Maybe you’re feeling a little behind. Don’t fall for those “get-rich quick” schemes, don’t fall for anything that sounds too good to be true. I’m sure we’ve all gotten that email from that Nigerian prince who’s just dying to give us all his money, right? Talk about red flags! Don’t do it.

Vigilant Approach to Finances

I can tell you one horror story after another about clients who unfortunately have fallen victim to fraud or scams out there. In our modern world, where everything is available online and easily accessible, it’s crucial to remain vigilant. Beware of anything that seems too good to be true, as it may pose a potential danger.

Get a Second Opinion

Make sure you’re getting a second opinion on everything you’re doing, whether it’s us as your financial planners, or running things by a family member or a close friend.

There are a lot of folks out there who are frankly just trying to get their hands on your money. Don’t fall for those red flags, folks. Take everything you hear with a grain of salt, run it by a trusted professional that you have, and make sure you’re getting a second opinion on everything you’re doing.
