"reorganization fee of $38 was charged on each account,"

This is another junk fee that is unique to TD Ameritrade. They have done that to me and to some small accounts i manage for my posterity. Schwab doesn't do this nickel and diming crap and neither does Merrill Edge. TD also charges for trades over the counter while Schwab doesn't. I was prepared to dump TD altogether until the merger was announced. But still, TD hasn't lost its inclination to chisel clients. They also charge for trades over the counter. None of the other brokers do that.

Good news is this: Call them and complain about the $38 dollar fee. Who ever answers the phone is authorized to remove the charge. I assume they usually get away with it but capitulate to any complaint.

This propensity to cheat their clients is one reasons i never considered buying AMTD. Very dishonorable IMO.
