Dividend payment taken back??

Hi guy

I'm relatively  new here but I have noticed a strange withdrawal from my share dealing account.

It turns out to be a dividend that I got from MTCH back in December ($2 per share special dividend). I reinvested those funds in other stocks I already own, so the cash in my account was sitting at £100 for a month or two. But I have just noticed I'm in negative balance by -£188!  This is now three months after I got the dividend and now they took it off me? Is this normal?  I've been scanning my statements to see if there is an obvious explanation but I can't work it out.?

I've experienced the same bizarre treatment. IG withdrew money from my ISA on the 23rd, in relation to the $2 special dividend on MATCH, then credited me a greater amount on the 25th. This means I'm missing 89% of my dividend amount. 

 

IG have advised me as follows, without specifying which aspect could be affecting me in this instance: 

 

Dividend reclassification refers to changes companies make to all or part of previously reported dividend income to some other tax classification.

 

•             A dividend is a distribution of a company’s earnings and profits.

•             A distribution by a corporation is taxed as a dividend to the extent of the corporations' earnings and profits, and any distribution in excess of the earnings and profits is generally a non-taxable return of capital.

•             In some cases, a company may have paid out more in distributions than it earned during the year.

•             In this situation, all or part of the distribution may be reclassified from a taxable dividend to a return of capital which is generally non-taxable.

•             A dividend may also be reclassified in other ways (i.e. the reallocation of ordinary dividends to tax-qualified dividends or dividends to capital gain distribution.

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
