Aeonflux

Question

I've been trying to call IG to setup a new account and was on hold this afternoon for 45 mins and then tonight at 1:00am i've been on now for 30 mins and no one is picking up. 

Is this normal? Whats the best way to speak to someone at IG?

Thanks for your first post. 

We are currently experiencing high volumes of calls/ email due to increased volatility on the markets. It's not the normal for clients to have to wait so long for IG to get back to them but all of the client facing team are working as many hours as possible to get back to as many traders. 

We're sorry for the inconvenience

I have been calling them this morning SGT 10.30am due to many trades they auto-closed on my account due to the drop in Crypto and till 11.30am, I still can't get anyone and its really frustrating

The desk are staying on the phone lines and having calls back to back. 

We're sorry that we can't get to everyone as fast as normally.

Yes, when they are not succumbing to a deadly virus that infected 0.001% of the world's population.

It might even be 0.1% at this stage.

Deadly crisis - everyone better go out and buy more freezers and stuff them with more sh!t and thus prevent non-hoarders from being able to buy anything.

Folk are clever, they really are.

Me too. nobody from IG is responding to neither of my emails nor my calls.

I joined IG in March 2020. It takes at least 65 minutes for them to pick up the phone. My account has had so much issues it has been a pain connecting to support.

This really has to improve. Customer's can't be waiting endlessly to get support. With high volume, 10 minutes max or setup web chat for quick help.

Twice I was on both for 30 minutes each time no answer. When you find away to speak to someone at IG tell them to answer the phone please

in March-April I would easily be on hold for up to an hour

but of late it's less than half an hour, yesterday it was pretty much instant

I did have one call where they picked up and took care of an issue, but when they talked to me I could no longer hear them so they hung up and got back to me by mail
