Hi Traders, I have applied for new account with a brokerage firm earlier, and they told me they won't accept Iranian citizens unless i prove that i am living and working outside Iran permanently. They refused me once, because they said: they don't care where or which company i work for, and work permit or employment Visa meant nothing to them unless i can have a proof that i am living in another country by providing legal documents like lease contract from LandLord or utility bills for elec, water or gas,... I was living in my parents huge villa, since i were single, then i had to find my own residence in order to provide them with documents that show my home physical address. Now after having all legal documents, They tell me: THEY DON'T ACCEPT ANY IRANIAN CUSTOMER I do understand some brokerer don't have service for some countries like Tradestation, MBtrading, ... That's a differnet case. But here they are worried that: IF I MIGHT BE A TERRORIST ?! Or THEY ARE ACTING AS BUNCH OF STUPID RACIST?! Can i check it trough "US Government" to see if they have the right to turn down Iranian customers, Because "ALL OTHER BROKERAGES HAVE NO PROBLEM ACCEPTING ME." If yes, Which organization or financial lawers to check with?
