Awesome

If your cant open a checking account because of a bad report on the chexsystems, opening a etrade brokerage account is a great second chance checking account because it comes with checks and a check card along with direct deposit. See http://www.badcreditmd.com/second-chance-checking-account/etrade/

Everything was great with Etrade. I had my checking, Savings, Brokerage, Ira and Corporate Accounts with them.

Until today. I learned that they made a business decision to close all my accounts without any warning. I never bounced a check, did not have any margin and had plenty of money in each account. Customer service basically said they have no clue and I will have to wait to get something in the mail. I used them for the convenience of online. But what a nightmare they have put me into. Now I'm fighting to get my money out of them.

Awful

I tried to open an account at etrade around January 1 2014. My credit bureau has a fraud alert system for security reasons. So I was told I had to mail a copy of my ID and SSN cards.

I sent it in in a full clear color printer copy.

I waited a week and called and was told that my SSN card copy was not clear enough in their scanned copy. The guy said I must have faxed it in. No it was not faxed in, it is their scanner problem. Then I was told to fax another copy.

Since then I have opened an account at Scottrade and TDAmeritrade. TDAmeritrade even just verified over the phone and did not ask for any ID copies.

So I will agree with the other complaints that these etrade people are incredibly incompetent.
