Former Robinhood workers detail complaints about customer service

A CBS News investigation found that the stock trading app Robinhood has long drawn complaints about its customer service. Former employees described a pattern of ineffective support: customer service agents without qualifications to offer financial advice, licensed brokers too busy to help and pleas from customers that went unanswered. The employees' descriptions echo concerns raised in a lawsuit filed Monday by the family of Alex Kearns, the 20-year-old college student who took his own life last June mistakenly believing he owed hundreds of thousands of dollars for stock market losses on his Robinhood account.

Is anyone investigating the IRS for failure to pay some Americans the 2nd and 3rd Stimulus payments, known as EIP 2 and EIP 3? By government standards, I am financially eligible, a legal citizen by birth, yet the IRS "Get My Refund" in January and again today shows the same statements without any ability to find out why the IRS has either determined that I am not eligible for both payments and/or what information the IRS does not have in order to give me the funds. Yes, I have called the IRS many times: 833-944-3810. The people answering the phones have no answer for me, except to state that line 30 of the 1040 is where we claim the $2,000 that was never received. However, that is not true. I've reviewed the 1040 Instruction manual provided by the IRS. Our members of Congress have not responded and Kay Granger's office has stated that the IRS is not accepting inquiries. I can provide personal documentation of the failure of the IRS to pay me the 2nd and 3rd EIP. https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040gi.pdf
Good afternoon guys..could you please help me too..🙏..🙏..🙏..i even feel like committing su***de 😭..cos no one is responding with help..😥
What should I do to get help?
I have not been able to email a story that needs to be investigated. I have left the message in messenger since the email wouldn't go through. Please check your messages. Thank you.
ARREST, CONVICT, & IMPRISON BREONNA TAYLOR'S MURDERERS: Black Women's Lives Matter!!! Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron Arrest, convict, and imprison for life the racist Police Officers who murdered Emergency Medical Technician, Breonna Taylor of Louisville, Kentucky. I must take this distinct opportunity to commend Black America's Attorney General, Attorney Ben Crump, who recently stated regarding Louisville, Kentucky racist police murder victim, Breonna Taylor's historic civil case settlement victory that, "Today, we got some justice for Breonna Taylor! Along with a $12 million civil settlement, we secured comprehensive police reform in Louisville. This will bring progress and reform out of this tragedy to protect other Black lives." Thank God for the dynamic leadership of Black America's Attorney General Attorney Ben Crump, and his dynamic legal team. They are, and many other anti racism lawyers like them, moving forward and making a major difference in the American legal system. That is absolutely use to sweeping the racist murder of Black lives by racist police under AmeriKKKa's racist rug. ●BLACK WOMEN'S LIVES MATTER!!! ●BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, KEEP THE PRESSURE ON DAILY!! ●BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT, CONTINUE TO DEMAND DAILY THE ARRESTS, CONVICTIONS & IMPRISIONMENT OF ALL OF BREONNA TAYLOR'S MURDERERS!!! Lets be crystal clear, and connect the dots. When racist police are not are not arrested, are not charged, are not convicted, and are not imprisoned for life in all of these endless criminal cases regarding vicious police brutality, and horrific murder of Black Lives. Sadly, three historically well documented crimes against humanity continue to happen again and again. 1.) Sadly, more and more racist police continue to brutally beat and lierally murder Black lives throughout the landscape of America. 2.) Sadly, more and more deeply troubled people of the exact same ethnic group continue to murder one another, and murder innocent bystanders (INCLUDING YOUNG CHILDREN) of the exact same ethnic group. 3.) Sadly, more and more deeply troubled police officers continue to commit su***de, and or, more police officers are injured and murdered in ambush attacks of absolute anger. Sadly, these are the crystal clear three stages of the continuous cycle of deadly violence that clearly cries out for major police reform from an anti racist perspective all across the landscape of America. Enough is enough!!! We must care, share, and bear the heavy burdens of the broken, battered, and bruised brothers and sisters of hurting humanity. The message of real anti racism reforms must be first and foremost on the radar of America's agenda to shut down racist AmeriKKKa's deadly agenda from the Whitehouse to the voter's house. Catch the vision of victory and never give up!!! https://www.change.org/p/andy-beshear-justice-for-breonna-taylor?utm_medium=facebook_ad&utm_campaign=ND_US_Breonna_PF Pastor Arthur L.

With the added stress of COVID-19, the owners of Chateau Del Mar have decided to add more to it. My original wedding date got canceled due to the coronovirus. I postponed the date. My second date got canceled. I postponed again. I was told my July wedding was going to happen for sure normally. I called all my vendors and guests and got everything set. After I was all set to go, I got called and was told I have extremely strict restrictions. Hoping the owners would understand, they completely disregarded the "act of god", and told me they will NOT refund me my money. Please choose wisely before doing business here. I will be filing civil small claims lawsuit and a class action lawsuit... If you have any questions or know someone else in my position who would like to join the class action, please email me at [email protected]. I will be interviewing with a news channel next week. Please reach out to me to be included in the interview. Chateau Del Mar was sued for racial discrimination amongst employees. Google it for the full story. They are racist. I strongly suggest the entire middle eastern, black, and Hispanic community to stay away from this place.
