Blocked Fund Services
Trading blocked funds is a specialty of some institutions and brokers. They exchange these funds for profits, frequently ask for discounts, or profit from currency exchange rates. On request, funds may be frozen to ensure that no fraudulent transactions have occurred. However, during this time, the money is placed in interest-bearing accounts so that it might earn income, which is then paid back to the account's owner after the money is unfrozen or unblocked.
