I have my 401K and a 529 account with Charles Schwab. I opened a new acct on the 25th of Sept to attempt to trade. On the 6th they blocked my account for "fraudulent" reasons and the investigative team we supposed to call back within 48 hrs to discuss the matter. After several calls for... Read more »
You need to put them on Notice in writing of your objection to the freeze, remind them you have open positions and your intention to sue them for any and all damages unless they take your orders and unfreeze the account or hire an attorney to do that immediately.
It would be best for an attorney in the area you posted in to advise. But with the question remaining open for three weeks, it's possible that financial advisors or investment brokers might be more familiar with this than attorneys. Good luck
Based on your statement, it looks like you are asking if insider trading is buying or selling stocks based on what you, as a member of the general public sees, for example, on the news. That is not insider trading. Insider trading would be if you are an employee of Apple, for example, and you...Read more »
The creditor (IEH) with the collusion of management is grossly undervaluing assets (3 separate FDA approved drugs and one pipeline drug) more properly valued at $500M. Management was to have refinanced the $170M debt already but due to gross negligence or complicity with creditor failed to do so.... Read more »
Firstly, a forum like this is an inadequate place to answer a complex question such as yours.
If you--and other stockholders--are aggrieved then you need to hire your own lawyer to appear on your behalf to address the issues. There is no way to enjoin the progress of a bankruptcy--only to...Read more »
Can I make membership based content (for instance on www.pateron.com) and share my stock market trading signals that I use to buy/sell with disclaimer that I am not investment/financial advisor, will I be under the risk of penalty?
The area of law you are flirting with is fraught with great danger; those who do not retain an experienced lawyer BEFORE stepping into the line of fire very often greatly regret doing so. Advising the public on how to buy and sell securities is the job that licensed stock brokers and brokerage...Read more »
So I was given two checks for a side job I deposit it to my account and they decline next day I was called that the check’s were fraud but they bank never gave me the money. I gave them the emails and address of where I gotten them and they froze my account. When I login into my account I had... Read more »
If you never got the money and the checks were declined, the bank must suspect you for fraud. There is something not right but if the whole matter is over $110 there is little a lawyer can do. When the courts reopen, make a small claims suit.
That's terrible. I recommend that you find an attorney in Texas to help you. There is an organization called PIABA made up of lawyers who represent investors. Here is the website. https://piaba.org. You can search for a local lawyer on the website. Good luck.
My boyfriend wanted to help me invest my portfolio. I gave him access but with stipulations that we were to talk about each position and I would okay them. I also told him I did not want to lose more than 2500$ of the original 10 k we talked about. He was to always put stops or trailing stops to... Read more »
Your spouse is not permitted to sign your name unless you signed a power of attorney document giving him the explicit authority to do so. Thus, if your spouse forged your signature, most fact finders would determine that that is fraud....Read more »
I had $1000 dollars in my bank account, I moved all of it into a investing website, but I accidentally did it twice, and now I'm in the hole for $1000, but I've already invested all the money. I know I can pay it back and the overdraft fees back by the end of the month, am I able to do... Read more »
Its not illegal. You have only a certain amount of time to replace the money. You pay it back as soon as humanly possible whether its against the law or not because the overdraft amount is not your money
Generally speaking, TOD means "Transfer on Death," and STA means "Securities Transfer Association." Your question remains open for four weeks; for a meaningful explanation of these terms, you should consider consulting with an attorney knowledgeable in probate/estate law, more...Read more »
I opened an online account with an investment facility, they ensured me that it would be activated after 24-48 hours. After 7 days, it is still not activated as I hoped and the 7th day was the deadline of a transaction that I wanted to do using the account. Furthermore I told them of the urgency... Read more »
Probably not--unless you can prove up some financial damages. Speculative losses are not reliable; neither are speculative gains. Brokerage firms--online or otherwise--cannot be held liable for mistakes that do not actually harm the customer.
Who are you to this deal? It may not be prejudicial. Depends on where the money went and where it was supposed to go. If to you, you can sue. The broker cannot be liable for not knowing of death, but can be liable if it should have known authorization was improper.
Specifically, How long does creditor have to sell vehicle and time-frame of sale results to debtor, as well as notifying credit bureaus of debt balance changes? If dealer keeps and resells the car on credit for more than what was owed what happens? Thank you
Without the benefit of seeing all the underlying sale documents and financing documents, or discussing all the relevant facts with you, I can only tell you-- generally--that once an automobile has lawfully been repossessed by the creditor the debtor's "rights" in the car have been...Read more »

Other issue is whether there was fraud on the court as far as the probate...Read more »
There are some critical facts missing from your facts: (1) Why are you asking for advice in mid-September 2019 about events that you say occurred in May 2017? There must be more than you are telling us.
You will want to also include in your search attorneys who represent investors in FINRA arbitration, as you are likely subject to an arbitration clause if you dealt with a licensed brokerage firm. I would suggest using the search function on this website, or visit www.piaba.org to find an attorney...Read more »
'Sorry that no one picked up your question in three weeks. At this point, you could look up attorneys here on this site under Find-a-Lawyer, conduct your own independent searches, or look into attorney referral resources from your state's bar association. Good luck
