    I invested $130,000.00 in an IRA with Millennium Trust. Their employees funneled the money into a Ponzi scheme and ran the IRA into bankruptcy. I received only one payment of
    $1881.64 as a settlement . Harvey Kluvers

  2. I have sent in the paperwork to get my rollover 401K liquidated. Got a phone call back saying that I didn’t fill out the paperwork correctly therefore, they couldn’t help me. Some time later registered with them online and was told it would be liquidated by way of a debit card that would be mailed in 10 days. Well, 35 days later no debit card and not able to get to anyone on the telephone. Meanwhile, my account value is $678.55 lower due to market and fees. Unbelievable!

  3. I have had very little problem getting in touch with a live person at Millenium Trust and their fees are way lower than the bank I had the money with prior to Millenium Trust. Fidelity or TD Ameitrade may be cheaper but I cannot do the investments in real estate or futures with them that I can with Millenium. Although the paperwork is frustrating for Real Estate with them.

  4. Jeffrey D Barron says:

    I have tried on numerous occasions to try and contact Millennium Trust in regard to my IRA with no response. I believe that once they have your money they are no longer interested in you other than the exuberant fees they charge. All I want to do is to either cash out my account or move it to someplace else but to no avail. STAY AWAY

  5. Linda Eckerly says:

    Forget trying to get through to Millennium Trust and talk to a live person. After 5 voicemails and emails over 4 months, I was finally able to get to their customer service person who was one of the most arrogant nasty persons who refused to help me. Their fees are the horrendous and over priced, errors on statements and over another 3 months to get my IRA out of there with more fees. Management will not take your calls. Stay away.

    • Robert,

      Do you have a specific lawsuit that you find concerning, and feel like potential investors should look closer at? If so, please add a link to that in the comments here so investors can make sure to properly evaluate it before choosing their custodian.

      We want to be careful, though, about just throwing out statements like this without providing additional information. What we do know is that Millennium (like many other custodians), was implicated in lawsuits tied to fraudulent investments (ponzi schemes, etc.), however, those situations typically had more to do with bitter clients who made bad investment choices rather than actions of the custodian. Custodians aren’t in the business of validating investment opportunities, they simply are the ones who hold the investments on behalf of clients. In any lawsuit people are going to implicate as many people as they can in an effort to get money, and just because a company was implicated, doesn’t mean they were at fault, or are a bad company to work with.

      So again, we definitely invite you to post additional information about the lawsuits, but specifically we would be looking for instances in which they were found at fault rather than just named.

      Thanks again for your feedback Robert, and we look forward to sharing what you are able to find.
