Hi 1poorguy,

How many shares are trying to be removed through the remove shares transaction? Would it be the amount of the fractional shares which you received cash for? If so, then that sounds correct to me.

I'd make sure I have a backup and accept the transaction.

The way I would verify if the transactions did the right thing would be to look at your "holdings" view of that security. If the cost is appropriate across all lots, and the number of shares looks correct, and the cash balance for that account has increased by the "cash in lieu" you received then I would say you're good to go by accepting the transaction(s).

If not, you can always restore from your backup and try again to make sure that your cost and number of shares remains correct. You can also contact Customer Support if you think this is an error.

Hope this helps,
