    When it comes to financial advice, Marketplace Money is usually in the business of highlighting the good stuff. This week, however, we’re after the bad. We want to hear the absolute worst, most awful pieces of financial advice you’ve ever gotten.

    Tell us here.

    Maybe your uncle Larry convinced you to invest in a company that went bust, or perhaps it was a financial professional that led you astray. In this case, I’m sure reality is better than anything we can come up with, so click here to tell us your story.

    And, who knows, your tale of woe may save someone else from falling into the same trap.
