Complaint / review text:
Initiated complete transfer via Scottrade, took over 2 weeks and still the cash in money market/brokerage account didn't transfer, only the stocks. Transfer was stopped without consent when a stock split, unnecessarily as all will transfer as residuals.
Tried to transfer 57K cash out during transfer and it was frozen "due to transfer:" Couldn't trade, couldn't access money! Today transfer of 2nd of 2 stocks finished, 16 days after initiation and voila! Could transfer out my cash back to my bank. Lesson: if you transfer out of Vanguard, move to a cash position if possible first: its fastest and more fool proof.
Especially when they wouldn't give me a time frame to transfer cash to Scottrade nor a single reason for freezing the cash and not transferring it. Time lost trading equals money lost and this was a costly experience.
