New customer, already tired of poor service

Recommended Posts

Opened a new account October 2017. Send an initial e-mail about transfers that takes 2 weeks to get a reply (after complain on forum).

 

IG confirms receipt of transfer request in November, that then goes dead. Current broker says they have got no request. An e-mail to query this never got a reply.

 

I have contacted live chat a number of times and have always been told transfers will get back to me, well they never have despite multiple attempts from me to get an answer.

 

My other broker has again recently confirmed that they have received no transfer requests and as I result I have now incurred some fees. Fees that could have been avoided if they had received the transfer request by the end of December that I sent to IG in plenty of time.

 

In my last live chat I said I would check with the other broker in Jan and if they have not been given the request I would ask them to refuse and then I would leave IG, I do not appear to have been taken seriously.

 

So after this, it is a case of "Hello IG!, Goodbye IG!"

Happened to me too! Loving the diverse choice of markets to trade and the options for instantaneous credit card deposit.

 

I'm about to lose faith with IG of putting my money in here. 

 

Have others experienced the same? Would I encounter similar problems when withdrawing my funds, with such level of customer service?

 Thanks. I assumed you have been with IG for long. That's slightly comforting. 

 

I've tried Live Chat, Document Upload, Sending Document via email, Direct Message IG Twitter, to no avail in getting even the slightest response. Only response I got was from Live Chat which they said they're looking into it. 

 

Haven't tried phone service - as I'm dialing international calls. Super expensive from my country.

Sorry to say i'm a new customer and have run foul of IG not trying to help in any way, when I called them for help, they responded by closing my account while I was talking to them on the phone. so now I can't buy or sell my shares and IG offering no solution.

What do I do now.

  • Handpicked content from IG Community

    • Finance ‘fact, but fictionalised’ books
      Get involved with a discussion from one of our Community members; "Which interesting finance and trading related books have you read and would recommend? Maybe they don’t need to ALL be specifically like that but any trading books you find interesting. 

      I am currently reading Dark Pool by Scott Patterson and it’s very very interesting. I would recommend reading or getting from Amazon or the library if you can. Paperback is a few quid and it’s an interesting read. All about how these matching engines started and pooled liquidity away from the main exchanges. It gives you a good understanding of the “plumbing” behind it all. Also makes more sense when looking at the market. 

      I’m the sort of person who would like to read as much around a topic as possible and I think it makes you a better well rounded trader to understand the back end too. Has anyone else got some books to recommend please?"

    • Retail sector profit warnings - EMEA brief 23rd July
      Fear of an increase in protectionism from the United States causes Asian equity markets to dip. Profit warnings rise 29% quarter on quarter to 58 FTSE listed companies. Retail sector leads the way, and its expected the earnings shall continue due to uncertainty in the future.

      Looking ahead, a somewhat quiet start to the week on the economic calendar sees eyes turn to eurozone concerns, with the Bundesbank monthly report and consumer confidence from the eurozone. The US markets will be looking towards US existing home sales figure, following on last week’s disappointing building permits and housing starts figures. The earnings season ramps up, with today’s earnings from Alphabet representing the first heavy hitter to keep an eye out for.
