Another site is coming from the famous purveyor of fine financial products. Remember the ill fated Pacific Western Indemnity and the one page VENDETTA letter that ran for 4-5 days??? The website mentioned several other entities, and one came in the Vendetta Letter......"Masters of Retirement", Richard Provencio and an 888-842-8269 contact number.

Do a google search for "mastersofretirement", you'll get a splash page discussing the virtues of Masters of Retirement...much of it taken from the first untouched version of

On the Google search page click "repeat the search with omitted results included" and you'll find a ton of additional pages related to the website.

After reading the splash page (Under construction), view the "Producing a million dollars of business per campaign" and other tabs from the Google search, then ask yourself, is there a disconnect from the Splash page???

Actually, Masters of Retirement is at it again under AED, or American Equity Direct. Same people, Richard Provencio, Thomas Celaya, and Fred Gardenour. Promises 20% return, and guarantee ZERO risk, but no disclosure of any assets, and they can't answer basic questions about their business. How is that for unrealistic? If you try to pull out your money they will spin you for months and never give you back your money.

Best of all is that they say that their operations are GUARANTEED because it has a financial protection guarantee, but if you dig a little deeper, it's issued by an insurance company owned by Fred Gardenour, who is an employee of AED and has a rap sheet in Texas as long as your arm.
Guess how well this company is capitalised?

Stay away from this one. I don't know when the authorities will catch up with Richard Provencio.
