“A company run by IDIOTS”

Written on: 08/03/2015 by PiperHagan95 (1 review written)

A company run by idiots. They have told me so many stories. But their bottom line is to stall and stall. They told me to send a letter that I wanted to sell my shares of stock. So I sent via FedEx and no reply after 3 weeks. I called and called. They told me I needed more documentation. I sent it via FedEx and via email and called them with no response. I talked with the "TEAM LEADER" -- what a joke. This company is run by IDIOTS ! Ms. Fisher would not call or respond to my emails. Management… Read Full Review

“It take forever to get your check once you cash stock”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by tagreit (1 review written)

It's unbelievable to me that in this day and age that it take weeks to get a check from computershare. Once you decide to cash in your stocks the transfer should happen immediately. Where does all the money go for the weeks that the stock is cashed...someone is making a lot of money on this process. Will never deal this way again… Read Full Review

Will not sell my wal-mart de mexico stock. When asked why was told they haven't been told why. They have my stock, but will not sell. I'm hoping I can transfer to a brokerage account - we'll see. This is a terrible business. The people are rude and the if this is a real business, I do not understand how they can still be in operation!… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE!!!”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by Luciana242 (1 review written)

Terrible to do business with this company! Keep you on hold for half an hour and then their "customer non-service" isn't any help! And when you withdraw funds it takes 10 days! Much too long. Sign up somewhere else 'cause this company is way behind the times!… Read Full Review

“Horrible Web Site - Worse Customer Service”

Written on: 26/01/2015 by Spence465 (1 review written)

The website has locked me out with an error that I've tried my password too many times on 4 occasions. To reset your password you need to wait for them to mail a letter to your house. I've tried calling them on 3 occasions. It was futile. I don't see how they manage to stay in business. I've used two other similar services. Both of them are hands down better… Read Full Review

“Worst company ever had to deal with!!”

Written on: 21/01/2015 by EanSaunders218 (1 review written)

This has to be one of the worst companies I ever had to work with. Not only are they rude but they don't have a clue as to what their doing. Thank god they are moving out of Massachusetts and hopefully a more friendly and professional company will come into the state and offer excellent service and hire better management… Read Full Review

“Exorbitant stock purchase and sell fees for Verizon...”

Written on: 05/01/2015

I was a Verizon employee and retired in 2013, shortly after which my house, outbuildings and all contents were destroyed in a wildfire. Computershare is handling 80 shares of VZ stock that I held at exit. They're offering to sell the stock OR let me buy 20 shares to make it an even-lot of 100 shares. In the past I've ignored these mailings and just held the stock and collected the quarterly dividends. Now I could really use that money for rebuilding. But VZ is currently considered a BUY or… Read Full Review

“Computershare customer service awful, ”

Written on: 18/12/2014

Customer service is awful. Wrongly sent my stocks to unclaimed. Took half a year of fighting, calls and showing proof that they have been in contact with me. Once they checked their records, they agreed that they were in the wrong. It has been a year since the whole thing started and I am still waiting to get my stocks back, every time I call back I hear that my claim is in processing or some where else or that so and so manager will have to call me back because they are busy. Haven't even… Read Full Review

“If I could give zero stars I would”

Written on: 14/12/2014 by M_S66 (1 review written)

This is by far the worst run financial group I have ever experienced. They used to have a very nice and user-friendly website, but not anymore. Once you have been locked out - which is inevitable - good luck on re-entering the site. I contacted the call center multiple times and every time I talked to someone in either the Philippines or India; as a result, we could not communicate clearly to resolve anything. They have to snail mail all forms to reinstate your user ID on the website and for… Read Full Review

“They seem to be stealing my stock”

Written on: 09/12/2014 by SteamingMad (1 review written)

I had a an account with Principal Financial several years ago. They demutualized in 2001 which meant my company has common stock now. I have been trying to sell it since the middle of November and can not get anyone at the call center to answer any of my questions correctly. My assumption, from the accent of the person I deal with, is it is an overseas center. Every time I call I get a new person and they never have the same information about how to handle the sale. I can't do anything online… Read Full Review

“Turtles are Faster”

There activity statements are not only very slow, like 3 weeks from a stock purchase, but also the statement itself, leaves more questions than it answers, does not give you a running total of all the shares you've purchased monthly , just that transaction. If you purchase small dollar amounts monthly watch the fees… Read Full Review

“I'd Give them Zero Stars If I Could!”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by SlamminSammy (1 review written)

I am furious. The ComputerShare site used to be great. Now it's been dumbed down to be totally unworkable. I'm a shareholder of CPU, and I'm cheesed off! They POST me a temporary password, instead of email it, LIKE EVERY OTHER SECURE WEBSITE ON EARTH!?!?!? CPU, get your act together! It's time to let the adults back in charge.

Same problem - they give you a temporary password and then when you click to go on the next page, it tells you that the password has 'expired.' How stupid is that?

“Most stupidly useless company on the planet”

Written on: 20/08/2014

Try to login. Asked "What is the name, color and breed of your current pet"? So some dimwit thinks its a good idea to require three different pieces of info in one question which must be input to a field where what you type is hidden. Smart.(NOT). Of course, if you get the comma in the wrong place, or add an additional space, you get blocked, the account is frozen. What a useless piece of garbage for security that is. Then ring up and get everything reset after providing my name, address… Read Full Review
