Lack of customer service at IG

Recommended Posts

I am appalled at the total lack of customer service at IG. I am in Australia and I tried to phone the help line twice. Each time I waited for nearly half an hour each time without being able to talk to anyone. I've also sent an email to helpdesk.au@ig.com back on Aug 6th and am still waiting for a reply. Now I'm trying Live Chat and so far all the chat box says is "One of our experts will be with you shortly", which I believe are the exact words used on the recorded message when I tried calling on the phone. Unfortunately, it appears that my definition of "shortly" differs a lot from IG's. I'm just curious as to whether anyone else has had similar experiences. It actually feels as if no-one works for IG at all and I will be waiting forever to get some assistance. Surely there's someone from IG out there who is willing to help an Australian in desperate need 😞

This really isn't good enough. The only thing keeping me here are the amazingly low brokerage fees, but soon I will come to the conclusion that I would rather pay slightly higher fees and get some service, as opposed to...........omg, someone is now talking to me on live chat....it's a miracle!!!!!

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?  I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
