Why Choose FAPA Financial?
Beware of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We have all heard that warning in various situations. But rarely is it as appropriate as in personal finance. From Charles Ponzi in 1918 to Bernie Madoff more recently in 2008, very bright people have been fooled by scheming professionals whose real character is well hidden. Well disguised wolves are all over and hard to spot.
