Security Sales and AFLAC Case
If you or someone you know purchased Security Sales Stock that later became American Family or AFLAC Stock back in the 1950’s, then I want to speak with you.
Security Sales and American Family Stock was sold in rural areas of Georgia under a stock subscription plan. This was a precursor to AFLAC that merged into American Family and then AFLAC. You paid a small down payment and so much a month to purchase stock.
This case, and yours is personal. I am assisting my 87-year old aunt who purchased such stock from Woodrow Sasser on a stock subscription plan in the 1950’s. My aunt cancelled her subscription plan before the subscription was completed and instead opted to receive her paid up stock certificates. AFLAC has no record of the merger because AFLAC did not keep records prior to the 1980’s.
Most people who purchased the original shares in Security Sales have cashed their shares and did not retain the merger documents. The two referrals my aunt sent Woodrow Sasser to in the 1950’s, those referrals have since sold their stock. When the referrals sold the stock, the stock had merged and was AFLAC stock. Because the referrals had sold the stock, they threw away all the documentation that showed how the companies merged.
You may have purchased such stock from Woodrow Sasser, James Calvin Buckner, A.K. Harrod, or some of their associates during the 1950’s in South Georgia.
You may be entitled to compensation.
