I'm inquiring on an investment my spouse made minus my approval 3 years ago... I intended on doing more research but left it alone as it was the first time my wife wanted to invest, and I thought, why hinder a good thing. World Marketing Association (WMA) is where she ended up. To me this seems too much like a pyramid insurance scam, unfortunately they are just a heirarchy of insurance twits trying to get rich off eachother. My question lies in the portion you mentioned in your article about faux mutal funds. The big sell the WMA associates gave my wife is that these were the REAL deal. Was she misled? We are just turning 30 next year, and I know the annuity isn't our best intrest and yes, I could answer no to several of your "7 questions to ask..." but would it be in our best intrest to let this ride now that she is 3 years into this investment or should I encourage the buyout and lose 1/3 of it's value in doing so... we're talking about a total annutity of just less than 10K. Please let me know if anyone has thoughts on this or the company WMA itself?
Thanks
