Hi everyone. I am new to this board. I have had several bad experiences
with Vanguard as well. They have some great funds and very low fees, but
some real idiots to deal with. I tried to transfer an IRA from T.Rowe
Price to them. They first sent me the wrong form. They then told me they
could keep some of my T. Rowe Price Mutual Funds with them, but they had
trouble trying to transfer them. It was such a waste of time that I wound
up telling them to forget it. A week later a vice president of Vanguard
called, apologized and wanted to make it right. By then it was too late.
It is pretty clear why their fees are so low.
