This time optionsxpress has cost me dearly. They told me there was no immediate need to add money to my account to avoid a margin call. About an hour after that conversation, they liquidated my stock when it was at its lowest point. Optionsxpress defrauded me out of $35,000 in seconds.
About 6 hours later that same day I recieved an email warning me that there would be a margin call on the stock if I didn't add $1,500 to my account within 3 days. The problem is, they had already liquidated my stock positions. I've spoken with several representatives and managers and they agree that they made a mistake yet they do not wish to fix it.
They told me that they were even willing to put me back in the stock position I had with margin and then said they couldn't because my account didn't have the same money in it. I wonder why. I invite anyone who has gone through the same thing to contact me.
Any actions taken by optionsxpress that violate the laws of the federal government and/or state are illegal and unacceptable. I hope this helps others to avoid doing business with this kind of company. Please share your story so that others don't get ripped off by optionsxpress.
