People who ask a question like yours typically are victims of a boiler room scam. This would appear that you actually made an investment.

I'm going to opt out for someone else who may know how to assist you under these circumstances.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. This site is for educational purposes only. Sometimes - although certainly not always - experts have to give you what you deem “bad news” but that should not be a reflection of how satisfied you are with the assistance your expert provided. My goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied before you submit your rating so please let me know if you have additional questions or you need me to clarify anything If there is a delay in the time it takes me to respond it is because I am working with a customer or I am not online - but rest assured I will respond to your follow up question, if you have one. You will need to contact the company through which you purchased the shares - Schwab, etc. - to determine exactly what happened. Contacting the company whose shares you purchased won't be very helpful. The investment bank should be able to provide you with the guidance you need. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Could you also please take a moment to submit positive feedback so that I receive credit for assisting you.
