      Hello Mr. Ike-obi,

      I will advise you to go through your broker when submitting your E-dividend form.

      The registrar liaises more or faster with your broker than your bank...

      Please go through the more...


      Write a letter to Veritas telling them that you may report them to SEC if they do not comply within the stipulated time...

      Thank you...
