PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Send me a corrected 1099 as promised several times. I was assured I would have it more than a week ago and have nothing yet. This is another example of a company who does not know the meaning of efficiency. Why...

I completely agree. My account was closed 3 years ago with Sterling Trust (aka "Equity Institutional", "Equity Trust Company"), and my information should have been removed a...

The best way to get Sterling to correct their erroneous 1099 is to complete IRS Form 14157 and mail it to the IRS with a copy to Sterling.

They have refused to close our account and would not give us back our money. They have charged outrageous fees for an account that has almost no money in it. Now they are billing us for an account that has reached a zero balance - which as I mentioned before we had...

IF you are thinking of establishing an IRA trust account with Sterling, DON'T! If you have an account already, I would move it! I recently transferred some assets into my account with them. Paid an extra fee for "express" processing. The customer rep I spoke with...
