I’ve had an account with Stockpile.com for just over a year now. I sent money every couple of months from a bank account and purchased 4-5 stocks with it. This month I began selling the first batch of stocks, and the account became unceremoniously locked. After sending them an image of my driver’s license, they unlocked the account, but the money from selling the stocks was “unavailable” to me. A few days later, the account was unceremoniously locked again.
It’s now 44 calendar days since selling my first shares. The last time I was able to see my account balance, that money was still “unavailable” cash. I say the last time because my account is currently locked for the third time now (this time for over a week).
