You should look at the contract you have with your investment group. Most firms include an arbitration provision in their contracts. If your firm is regulated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), you likely will have to pursue any claims in a FINRA arbitration. I hope this...Read more »
Recently I invested $1000 into Dogecoin as it was at its lowest of 0.19 and just today this cryptocurrency has just reached its all-time high of 0.60. And because of the surge of this high buying for Dogecoin, Robinhood's crypto services went out and I couldn't sell nor buy during this... Read more »
Sure, anyone can sue anyone else; so f you have $400,000 I am sure you can find a bunch of security lawyers willing to try to slay a giant. But you need to forget about "bribery" and "string-attached manipulation."
There are attorneys on this board who are knowledgeable in securities-related matters who could best advise, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL premise, for someone to be liable for scamming or defrauding someone, it usually has to be shown that they had an intent to deceive or...Read more »
I was able to buy this particular stock in the pre-hours, but once the market closed I was unable to purchase more of the identical stock. I can, however, sell my already purchased stock (at a loss). How is this not someone choosing to make me a loser by locking me in where I am?
First, this is not "Stockbroker Fraud". If you do not select the correct category, then attorneys that handle that kind of case do not get a notice. Next, Moving companies are federally licensed, you should look up your company on the internet and you will find out a lot about them,...Read more »
It is not "illegal" to share your login credentials, but it is likely a violation of your brokerage account agreement. Most brokerage account agreements contain language that says you agree you will not share your login information with a third party. So, it could be a breach of your...Read more »
It depends on what your customer agreement states. Most firms have broad discretion to hold onto funds if there are AML issues. You may want to be very active with your broker to find out what is happening.
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.
