I, and the vast majority of Fools, are completely in the camp that there is no way you should pay this. Thank him for his time and take your investing to one of the mentioned mutual fund companies/brokerages who will not charge you a load.

Don't get me wrong. I totally agree with you.

My point is that some people left on their own with no help, simply refuse to save for retirement. It is better to pay a load and save, than not pay a load and not save.

And, you may be right about the load fee. The more I think about it, it may be deducted from the contribution after inside the Roth, so it ends up reducing the amount.
