ComputerShare Complaints & Reviews

ComputershareComputer share scam

The same with computershare.com.au
They keep asking registered address for the account holder and keep saying they don't have that address in records.
Then finally they have it but still dont give the SRN needed to transfer back the share to an exchange.
Then they end up saying again the address given is wrong again and again.

Finally I manage to access the account online on their website and surprise the SRN is hidden everywhere!

Check the screenshots dates. You can see one day it's good then later once again it's not...
They are playing me for a fool.

      ComputershareSelling of restricted shares from employee share plan

      I recently sold unrestricted employee shares through computershare.
      I was careful to select only the unrestricted shares and not the restricted shares because it would trigger a forfeiture of employer shares in my holdings. I called on September 13th and 14th to ask for an explanation
      and was told nothing could be done about it. I simply asked for a
      detailed confirmation of the transaction but was refused. I forfeited
      16 employer shares at a loss of approximately $2500.00 .

        Computershareaccess to services

        I have repeatedly attempted to gain access to my account. Every attempt results in Computershare's system saying they will send me a validation email link. I never receive the email. When I contact the company, they, in error, believe this is some other kind of problem and send temporary passwords and validation codes via postal mail. I enter these into their system and again, I am asked to validate an email link that never arrives. It is not in my spam folder and my email address is entered correctly. Computershare is engaged in fraudulent business practices, and I will continue to allege this until the issue is resolved and gain access to my account online.

          ComputershareCharges Incurred re Bounced Cheques

          I have been having an ongoing issue with my shareholder cheques which have recently been returned by Bank of America in the US. My bank, Halifax, in the UK have only been told that the cheques are "returned to sender" with no further information being provided.

          This has, therefore, meant that I have incurred bank charges and a loss in the conversion rate of the cheques being returned.

          To be quite honest this has been ongoing now for nearly 7-8 months and although the Regulatory Complaints Department have been involved no resolution has been received. The team say I need to speak to Computershare who then indicate that I need to speak to Bank of America. I have asked them on numerous occasions to advise a time when they are calling as this normally the evening in the UK and I end up missing the call. They have only ever once arrange a time. Recently, the department have tried to call but have not arranged a time as requested so I have missed their calls. Although recently they have given me a number at Computershare and I was advised that Computershare would call me but this is not the case.

          I have also incurred overseas phone charges from the UK.

          In light of the above I would like to be reimbursed the monies owed.

            Computershareonline brokerage services

            Computershare was the agent for Spectera/Enbridge Stock which was once a part of Duke Energy.
            Computershare's customer service is NON-EXISTENT. They have been holding shares of Enbridge for over a year since I first requested the shares to be sold.
            They claim they have NO means to sell the shares online. I interpret their actions as being they simply refuse.
            AVOID Computershare.
            I suggest, that if you have assets held by them, move them to a reputable brokerage.
            Another Complaint I have is they charge unreasonable prices to purchase shares. At one time, before I knew the extent of their fraud, I considered purchasing shares of other companies. What I found is they charge large fees whereas purchasing from most online brokerages would be no commission buys.

              ComputershareRegistration process

              This is the worst web service that I have ever utilized for a financial service, the worst.

              I go through the online verification process, register successfully, and then receive a reply that I will get a response email in 7-14 days, then I can access my account. Hey, this is 2021. Letters do not arrive in the mail due to USPS incompetence. Certainly there has to be a better registration process.

                ComputershareCannot transfer or sell shares

                Online service will NOT allow me to sell or transfer shares.
                I've initiated at least three requests to transfer ENB ordinary shares into an account at Fidelity.
                All appropriate documentation was submitted to Fidelity.
                The curious aspect is that In April, I successfully transferred a part of my ENB from Computershare to Fidelity. Same Stock, Same brokerages, Same transaction request.

                Can't sell, can't transfer. Sounds like Computershare is trying to prevent me from getting my money.

                I won't send account or personal info in this complaint and I will try to work DIRECTLY with Computershare, however, they insulate themselves behind their web-wall and there doesn't seem to be anyone responding to my requests for information. The company Computershare should be shut-down.

                  Computersharenon receipt of money from sale of shares

                  On 25 November i sold my ABSA Group share via the dealership desk in Johannesburg. Initially there was some confusion re the bank account but eventually everything was sorted out and the sale was completed. I have the reference number. Unfortunately I still have not received the proceeds from this sale after numerous calls and telephone discussions. The problem is that I am phoning South Africa from the UK and I frequently get cut off. Only this morning I asked specifically for the agent who I have dealt with on a number of occasions and without even verifying my identity i was cut off after I had said I hoped he could explain why I had not yet received my money. So far I have spent over £200 (almost R4000) on phone calls and not received any reason why this has not been paid. I am planning on contacting the ombudsmen as a next step.

                    I have been back and forth with this company for 13 years now and today is the final straw. First I updated my maiden name and address which, to there credit, is the only thing that has been done right. Then I tried to remove my father from the account which should have happened when I turned 18. The paperwork to remove him gets lost on their end, disturbing considering how much personal information it contained. Then I fill it all out again and he gets removed but my, incredibly simple, name gets misspelled. I call to fix that and get told I have to go through all the paperwork for a 3rd time So I wrote and e-mail and got a call the next day with a girl swearing up and down she could fix it all and I wouldn't have to do the paperwork again. Given the total incompetence up to this point I really shouldn't have been surprised that I got sent something today with my maiden name, not my updated name, and my father is on the account again! She somehow made things worse than when she started. I call to get this all fixed again and get told there are paper versions of the stocks and that's why they can't remove him? But they did! They can remove him because they already did when they misspelled my name!! She is saying I have to fill out more paperwork, pay for a notary, and pay $80! For something that never existed? Why was this issue never mentioned before? All the sudden this other issue that no one else caught magically exists? Now I am going to be out close to $100 by the time this is all said and done due to the incompetence of their staff? They have had 13 years worth of chances but I've had these stocks 30+ years. I have been beyond reasonable. All I need is:
                    1. My father taken off as a custodian
                    2. My name spelled correctly
                    3. Checks that I cannot cash due to the aforementioned issues reissued with the correct information.
                    That is it. That is all that needs to be done. I shouldn't have to beg for simple every day things. Let alone wait 13 years for it. This is all they need to do to make me happy. I am just asking for them to do their jobs.

                        Computershare Investorsinvestment money

                        My dad passed away a couple of years ago. We discovered that he had an "investment" with AV HOMES through this Computer Share place. When we called to try to close his account, they said we would have to change the account into our names.
                        Of course there is a form you need to send in to do that, then there is the Medallion Signature Guarantee, but if you want to waive that you can pay 50.00 and send a copy of your "government issued" ID.
                        Now we get to the part where they have figured out how to get even more of your money if you don't have the original certificates (which as far as I know may have never even existed)... (have you ever had the chore of cleaning out a deceased relative's place...?) So after you send them 80.00 for the missing certificates, and 50.00 to change the stock into your possession, then there is the question remaining if you will actually be able to get hold of the money (for us it the balance would be 69.00!) or close the account. Here is a sample of just one way they will try not to pay out...
                        "Please note that if this stock has a book entry option, certificate requests may only be fulfilled by the owner entering requests via our Investor Centre web site or by contacting a customer service agent, after this transfer has been completed on our records. * Instructions requesting certificates that accompany a transfer request will not be fulfilled if a book entry option exists.* Note that certificate requests may have a fee requirement."
                        Basically this company just finds more ways not to pay out the stock and /or collect more money from relatives who are trying to settle an estate. Oh yeah, then there is the disclaimer at the bottom of the most recent statement: Important: Unclaimed property laws require Computershare Transfer Agent to show periodic contact from you otherwise your state of residence may require your shares and or uncashed checks to be turned over to the state as "abandoned."
                        Maybe once the money is "abandoned" we can check with unclaimedmoney.com to get it...
                        In my opinion this company is a rip off and I want nothing more to do with them. They can keep the money, may it will fuel the fire that destroys them.
