Mind you, this was 20 years ago, but I had made a remark that my previous employer must be having a paperwork problem with their Employee Stock Ownership Program, because it was June, and the plan required annual reports by the end of April, and I had still not received one.
TWO days later, a registered letter arrives from a Law Firm, warning me of the consequences of slandering my previous employer. . .
I shut up. The Annual Report (and my final ESOP certificate) arrived in September. Needless to say, I liquidated immediately and rolled it to an IRA. . .
Mind you, that was over a CASUAL COMMENT on compliance with a filed financial plan.
