If you don't understand it and no one can explain it in terms that you really understand, my suggestion is to forget about it.

This bears repeating with emphasis.

Keep your checkbook in your pocket when dealing with financial slicksters. Better yet, leave it at home & get out the 12-guage instead.

I have a simple rule for financial sales pitches or even "tips" from friends. If I want financial advice, I will seek it out & make the contact. If someone contacts me, they are not acting in my best interest & can keep right on walking.
