Robinhood, the online millennial-focused brokerage site, brags that “Investing is simple here.” That sounded great to Bryan Santer when he was looking for an easy way to invest some cash. So, he followed the onscreen prompts, transferred $2,400 into his Robinhood account and prepared to make his first transaction.
Of course, as is true with any investment, Santer knew there would be some risk involved. But what actually happened, he never saw coming. That simple investment he hoped to make turned into an instant nightmare. Robinhood accepted his money, immediately froze his account, and refused to explain why.
That was four months ago.
Since then, Santer has been in an ongoing, highly emotionally charged battle with Robinhood to retrieve his $2,400. But now he’s reached his limit. Santer is hoping the Elliott Advocacy team will join this fight and convince Robinhood to give him back his money.
Can we do it?
