While investment advisers often dream of increasing their recognition and following on social media, most don't want to achieve their goals the way George Papadopoulos did this week. Papadopoulos, a financial planner in Michigan, was mistaken for George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign, who pleaded guilty in Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election. "For the nth time, I am NOT Trump's foreign policy adviser! I have NO association with the Trump camp! NONE!" Papadopoulos-the-financial-planner said in a tweet Monday morning. Read the original story from InvestmentNews.
