WARNING! James Knee from Concord, New Hampshire and Voya Financial Advisors
Have you lost money with financial advisor James Knee of Concord, New Hampshire? We are investigating allegations made by the New Hampshire Securities Bureau against James E. Knee. New Hampshire alleged that a client wrote checks totaling $205,000 to Knee personally. Knee contends that these were gifts, but the New Hampshire Securities Bureau had information that made it believe that this contention was incorrect. New Hampshire is investigating this further.

Knee also was affiliated with Ameriprise Financial Services from August 2012 to November 2012. Knee currently has four customer complaints on his record.
