I've recently had some fairly aggressive cold calling from WPS financial, a financial planning / fund management firm. I'd been contemplating getting a financial plan done for a few years, so I figured I'd give them a chance to explain their products. The guy who came over seemed nice and fairly straightforward, and pitched what seemed to be a fairly comprehensive financial plan. I was pretty much ready to commit as the plan was only $650 (which if it does what it says would pay itself off fairly soon anyway - good investment IMHO). But the missus was a bit hesitant / suspicious so I told the guy we'd talk it over. Anyway I got into work today to do a quick google to see whether there was much in the ether about their services, but I found very little supporting their work. I did find this yahoo thread, however, which seemed very suspicious. A few years old now, but it did not do wonders for my confidence in the company. There was one post on this whirlpool forum which plugged their services, but plenty of others which hinted at dodgy operation back in 07/08. Anyway, just wondering whether anyone has used them / heard of them and whether they have any experience to share (both good and bad). Right now my inclination is to walk away because nothing I see in my research fills me with confidence.
