Though only loosely related to MF Global - I'm trying to erase that ugly situation from my mind just as they have erased my money -- Stratfor (an internet "security" company - LOL) was apparently holding customer credit card numbers and personal data totally unencryted on an Internet server!

Ok so you're saying - no one could be that careless with customers identities - esp not a security company.

From FT.com
"
Thousands of companies have been put on alert for cybercrime after hackers stole personal data and credit card details held by a US security company, and threatened to make public the client list of at least one other organisation this week.
British companies including BT, BAE Systems, Barclays and HSBC were among the organisations whose details were leaked to the internet, alongside organisations such as Apple, Microsoft, Coca-Cola and Google. "

Staffor has closed its website after the CEO credit card number was published on the hacked site according to
Office of Inadequate Security

"I was stunned to read that credit card numbers were stored in clear text on Stratfor’s servers. "
and
"So they pledged to “maintain safeguards to protect the security of these servers and your personally identifiable information.” In this day and age when there have already been so many hacks and hackers have made their intentions clear, I think some might reasonably be shocked or consider it negligent that Stratfor not only stored so much data but failed to encrypt it. Is this how companies demonstrate that they are “committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information?” If so, I am not impressed."
Stratfor’s privacy policy | Office of Inadequate Security


--
I think a very real threat to your money and it being stolen from is from organization that can't even bother to encrypt your info.

Hopefully the FBI will put these exec in jail and take the homes and money for "criminal neglect" - LOL

(IMHO Putting your credit card info on the net opens you to joing the thousands whose lives have been destroyed by identity theft.)

MF Global Claim form

I need to file a claim form with the trustee to get my cash back.

Is anyone else also filing?

I had one open position and it and some of the funds were rolled over to a new futures trading firm.
I find the form very confusing and the questions hard to decode.
Looking for a little help who is better at understanding it than I am.

Thanks

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Hi aquarian1,

Has anyone heard what will happen to one of the trading platforms hat MF Global bought just before their issues, Strategy Runner (also known as GST)?

That is just : Soliciting your business and nothing else.

I'm not sure what you're on about swizz. Really! You offer nothing to help out others?
I guess you didn't have to fill out the form yourself. N'est pas?

I found it really helpful and some of the questions I had answered I had got wrong until I read it.

They are not a brokerage firm so they can't solicit business.


The bankruptcy trustee's form is totally gibblegook. I got an aid from Daniels trading - just as much of double-speak as the form IMOH. And my broker was absolutley no help at all.

Today I got it filled out and in the mail. A huge weight of stress off my shoulders.

(I hope someone xxx the thieves- sigh. The crooks never go to jail - only in th USA you say?

A sad a sorry chapter behind us - I hope. Forget putting money in th USA - no laws - no regs -
"segregated account" - is just a marketing term for "your money has flown to the Caymans!"

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
