    AGREE 100%
     
  6. as much as customer service sucks at ib, def is the only reason why ib gets my commish. They lose him, they will lose me as a customer.
     
  7. what I do not understand is how he finds time
    for his friends and family after answering the
    majority of our posts at all hours !

    :)

    I ABSOLUTELY agree that DEF is a major reason IB does so well.

    'Cause it aint customer "NO" service....

    Read on...This is an email exchange for your information...There was also a very un-eventful chat in-between that you could probably figure out...

    In summary...The typical "Customer No Service" response to a customer who has spent thousands with them on commissions ( not to mention enduring the numerous losses due to tanked trades during "outages")....I wonder if they are having a tougher time financially than we thought.....Also note the laughable email address....

    > Yes, Interactive Brokers is cheap. But, I suppose you get what you pay for. In any event, enjoy the 25.00 while hiding behind your "policy". I'll feel free to pass this on so it can be added the ever longer list of "no customer service" events and policies at Interactive Brokers.

    > On 12/26/02 Citibank returned check #1002 dated 12/12/02, payable through Bank of America for $25,000 that you presented to Interactive Brokers for deposit. Citibank New York returned this check for the reason of insufficent funds. Accordingly, a $25.00 bounced check fee was charged towards your IB account.

    > I would like to begin by thanking you for your business and patience in this matter. I am writing you in regards to a check that you wrote from your CyberTrader account in the amount of $7873.72. I will discuss the events surrounding the bouncing of this check.
    >
    > You called into CyberTrader, Inc. in December to request your account's available equity. In that conversation, you were told by one of our representatives that the options in your account had no net effect on the equity in your account and thus gave you an excess equity figure. Based on the figure provided, you wrote a check for those funds.
    >
    > Unfortunately, we found that the options in your account actually did consume some of that "excess equity," which caused the check to bounce. At CyberTrader, Inc. we pride ourselves on providing accurate and timely service to our clients. Thus, we truly regret any inconvenience that this incident may have caused you. If you have any questions, please contact us immediately.

    Cyber should really refund you the $25-00. It was their mistake. But IB really is somewhat stubborn.
