The Private Trust Company - Your Privacy is at the risk of a breach.
Your Trust advisor changes frequently. You have to go through a committee for a distribution. Committee members are unknown. To prove that you need a distribution, you must send receipts of your personal information, such as doctors bills. Doctors bills have a great deal of personal information on them in which a breach of privacy could occur. I can send an annual budget with no problem, but I’m not sending very personal information to people I don’t know. I don’t trust this company. This company would rather have you go without necessary things then try to help the beneficiary. I am closing this out of state account and find a financial advisor that is within my reach and working for me and not for their own pockets.

Unhappy with the way my decised friends trust is not being distributed after his death of 8 months

I am one of 4 people that was left money through The Private Trust Company a subsidiary LPL. My friend passed and left us a large sum and The Private Trust Company refuses to release any money. On top of that they kept moving investments around which keeps incurring costs. We have asked numerous times for them to distribute the money but they are using every trick in the book to hang on to the money. In the meantime they keep charging the Trust fees. I have in the meantime incurred about 10k in lawyers fee trying to get them to release the money. In my opinion this is a highly unethical company using clients money to run up fees and refusing to do a distribution.

The problem with Financial Services Companies is widespread, and it seem attributable to the fact that the Financial Services Sector is one of the largest contributors to political campaigns - both Democrat & Republican.Wells Fargo recently fired something like 5300 employees for creating false accounts. Accounts were created fraudulently.

Sounds criminal doesn't it? Look into things and you will discover the majority of the senators on the committee that investigated Wells Fargo received donations from Wells Fargo. And that includes Democrats and Republicans.

No criminal prosecutions occurred. Go Figure.
