I sent a check from my 401K to be rolled into an IRA to etrade. They deposit the amount
into my regular account (less $54). THEY SHORTED MY DEPOSIT BY $54.(TRANSPOSITION
ERROR). My check was for $3293.45 and they only deposited $3239.45.
TWO weeks later, this still isnt corrected and the money is still in a regular account(you
only have 60 days to deposit it in an IRA or else their is tax consequences.
THey anvertise free tax software if you open an IRA account . I sent the paper work in
3 times (since 2/1/00). They finally opened it and told me I would receive the software.
TODAY they told me I will not recieve the software because I didnt sign up on line (used one
of their applications instead).
I recommend people avoid E*TRADE at all costs and go with one of the other online
brokages. They give false advertisment and DONT DEPOSIT ALL THE MONEY YOU SEND
IN INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.
