I applied and got approved within minutes. Now they're gonna send something in the mail for me to sign and they also want me to send a copy of my driver's license and Green Card.

What the hell? All I wanted was to buy 100K shares of AMD. Why are they pissing me off? Do they really need all that stuff or are they trying to steal it so they can sell it to third world underground counterfeiters?

I agree, no one wants AMD stock right now :p

Seriously though, 100k shares? I guess if youre gonna lie, lie big.

Since thats about $1.3m to someone whos not even 30 years old...

FBI: "Mr. Eastman, are you aware we have traced numerous money transfers by you to umbrella corporations known to provide funding to terrorist sleeper cells around the world?"

Mike Eastman: "wha?"

So, at 3:57am this morning, you wanted to buy 100K shares of AMD, and then at 4:21am, 24 minutes later, you became jobless.....

I guess you won't be buying all of those shares after all.

You can just do it via email if you are in a rush, that's what I did (printed last page of application, taped driver's license to it, signed, scanned back in, appended to the rest of the application and emailed it back). Never had to mail anything out or wait for any mail to arrive. In retrospect, fax might have been more secure and less trouble.

I am sure this is a parody thread.
Sounds a lot like all the other ATOT investment threads, only wilder.
