I had an opportunity to move to a more sophisticated trading platform at another firm and needed to "get out". 4 requests made past 3 weeks....fax, email, regular mail, certified mail. All of these went unanswered. Tried to call the firm's phone number...there was no answer. Called NYC phone directory and they said there was no one listed under that name ! Interestingly, the prop firm uses another large brokerage firm for it's trade clearing and account management. Despite that firm having access to my sub-account, they refuse to step-in, admonish the prop firm owner (who is their customer), and send me the check. The President of the "large brokerage firm" is now aware of the situation as-is the Compliance Officer. After the "large brokerage firm" contacted him, I finally received an email from the Prop firm owner and he wants to "talk about it". My response: WHAT'S THERE TO TALK ABOUT, JUST SEND THE MONEY ! Am I missing something here ? Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I should do next ? 1) SEC complaint ? 2) NASD complaint ? 3) contact Elliott Spitzer ? Against whom ? Prop firm, Prop firm owner, "large brokerage firm", all of the above ?
