Any one else think IG's customer support is an utter disgrace?


MrShed

Question

I've had trouble with them since I opened the account, but it's come to a head today as I had a problem with the platform which has stopped me from placing trades.  An urgent inquiry you would think, but I've been unable to raise anyone on the phone line, it just rings for hours without being picked up, and the live support team are useless.  40 minute plus wait just to have someone that is completely clueless about the platform or trading tell you to ring the phone line again.  I've missed out on an entry point I've been waiting on for a while now because of this, and I'm becoming so exasperated I think I need to change brokers.  Am I missing something here? their website says its 24/5 customer support from experts yet I've never managed to find one.

IG support is terrible.  I have had an account for more years than I care to remember and they have lost the link between my live account and my community profile.  Each email reply I get is from a different person who just repeats the same irrelevant questions and points the last person sent.  There's only so many times I can handle the instructions "clear cookies", "use chrome".

Has anyone else had the link between their account and community profile lost?  If so, how was the link restored?  I keep getting asked t o complete my profile even though I have been posting on the forum for 4 years.

I don't understand why @IGCharlotte doesn't often reply when tagged, or why other representatives of IG don't bother to address issues raised on here. 

it would help if you used the correct tag which will auto fill if right such as @CharlotteIG and the font turns red. 

But as I mentioned in another thread earlier today in the forum;

... this forum was set up for clients to exchange info and ideas and was never meant to be a back door to the helpdesk, though occassionally a moderator may perform that task - based on long term observation - I can say it's more likely they won't.

    • Have to say Casey, your contributions on the on going Covid story (monumental ballsup) have been a tonic. Was sceptical for sometime but am more sympathetic to your premise regarding the pandemic and the reaction to it. Vaccines are such good PR, it is a shame that the general population are being used as guinea pigs for DNA altering drugs with as yet unknown and potentially damaging long-term consequences and side effects. Doubly bazarre,the governments of the planet are prepared to take the risk in the name of exigency. AZ is particularly dirty and incomplete, if not down right dangerous as to be considered a lethal weapon to some of the unfortunates unlucky enough to experience the more unpleasant side effects of being injected with it. Such is political expediency and exigency at the altar of public health. Forgive the unPC comments, but they are borne from experience, as my wife has had long-term reactions to the "cure". Most folk don't want to hear anything but the popular narrative, even if it vere's heartily away from some inconvenient truths. So thank you Casey keep up the good work, it's appreciated.
    • Don't think the bull run has ended, just a correction is very much on the cards. Timing of which suggests we have some room to manoeuvre but would not be surprised at all if the market tops out within the next couple of weeks, or anytime around 21/06....Suggest it is more a profit taking exercise than genuine full scale correction, which could/should be later in the year. Only mentioned this as markets have been red hot for months and swimming in liquidity, sooner or later some of that will be taken out in the form of profit taking. Suggest it may be a 10% er or even more. In the past have purchased  ETFs that short the market and like to buy the Vix at less than 20, as it's a fair form of insurance (Imho). Psychologically, the oil markets have a problem with WTI being over the $75, which at current rates of progress is due to top out sooner than later. Just mentioning it.
