There is no such thing as a free lunch (part I)
Lie. Well it all depends on how you look at it. If someone asked you, "would you like a free lunch at a respected establishment, and in addition, a friend for life, no questions asked, a friend that has a vested interest in your financial future and regularly calls to check in on how you are doing?" Sounds too good to be true. Now consider that this person is an Ameriprise Financial employee who wants you to come in for a consultation and has been calling you since September, with plans to call you right up until you are safely buried underground, at which point they will start calling your grieving children. Free lunch, indeed.
