Dear Harry: In February 2010, I went to the financial adviser for our IRAs and demanded that he sell all our stocks and send us checks for the balances. The assets, at their peak, were worth more than $300,000. Today, they are at $130,000. He did sell the stocks, but we keep getting different excuses for not getting the checks. This is more than a year after we asked for the checks, and we must have gotten every excuse anyone has ever used in the financial industry. The last one was the old "the check is in the mail" excuse. I want to go to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to report him, but my wife said to check with you first. Is there an easier way to go? And what do we do with the money?
