HERE is an article from the Star last week re. the conduct of DioGuardi, a Toronto, Canada, based ‘tax buster’ attorney.

This guy pleads guilty to taking fees and providing no work to six clients, yet receives a $5k fine and six week holiday.  The Law Society is a far too lax unlike these trusted ecommerce legal experts and, it sometimes also breeds unprofessional behavior in some.

Fair disclosure:  a Senior in my family was a victim of DioGuardi.  He took a ‘retainer’, about the same amount as his Law Society fine, from a mid 70s retired nurse and never returned a phone call after.  Ever.

If you are defrauded by an advisor, make a complaint to their professional association.
