I don't know where is the right section to post this, so if I posted in the wrong section, please let me know.

I just wanna share my TERRIBLE experience at PAXFUL

I traded my Gift Card for a BTC with a trader in Paxful, it went smooth and I got the BTC, but right after the trade, for just like 3 minutes, my BTC was sent to someone I don't know and I didn't even initiated the trade. WHAT THE FLYING FCK. The BTC address is 1KMfvoGyhRAu7xouFB67FZeRKzFWoBpEb6. I don't know what the fuck is happening and I'm terribly in a financial crisis right now because that money was supposed to be used for my brother's school expenses. I tried contacting Paxful but still never got a reply from the support team. Browsing the website's forum, I saw a lot of people posting the same thing about having their BTC sent out to a completely unknown person though I don't know if it's the same BTC address where my BTC went. I'm so fcked up.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not blaming Paxful here. I just want to warn people who will use Paxful in the future and who are using it right now.

I had the same problem with this site once, Its s fuking site, because i used many other site but my account was not hacked, scammed like this site.
What im now thinking is that, They scam people account itself and When people say that this site is a scam they use to say that "You were Not using a 2 factor authentication" LOL. I was Not using any 2 factor security code on blockchain, coinbase etc but never scammed like you scam your People.

I also recommend people to Be Away from this site.

I had also Never heared anything from them too. And Dont even think that they will refund your scammed BTC. They are real scammer I think, Scamm people in a Cleaver way

They look people on their site that have not using 2FA Code and scam Him, and when he open a scam accusation they said you are not using a 2FA code. What the Fuck man Am I Not using a Strong Password?  Angry

I have heard name Paxful from some of guys who wanted to trade for my vanilla cards but i refused them not because of Paxful but for local reasons that i am facing these days with my business. I am sure Paxful is a scammy stuff.
If you wanna be safe trade here with trusted escrow.

What was the volume of Bitcoins you were trading ? You can file a dispute using their online support box.The usually reply within hours.It's too early to predict if they actually scammed you without having a resolution from their side.

It shouldn't matter if you're trading 1 bitcoin or 0.01, a trading platform like that relies on it's reputation for fairness. I have seen other threads in the scam section about Paxful before, probably is better to stick with localbitcoins.

LBC is great.Their support is amazing.Recently have seen issues on their forum regarding time taking withdrawal requests ,never happened with me though.

That is why i search for every thing before going into a business transaction. if you found out about the scam accusation before you send your btc to paxful, you might just have been warned after searching.
Everything is posted online these days even the names and the btc addresses are being searched just to find out who you are dealing with.

Payment is Not the problem, As he didnt mention But the problem is their fishy behavior. Let me Know does something ever happened with you that you have secured password on a Site and someone logged into your site? If you ask me its NO, But how that person logged into my paxful account and Scammed me? And Surprised Same thing happened to OP, Isnt it look fishy? Because they scam those people which dont use 2fa code because they have a reason to tell you that you were not using 2fa code,

WHAT THE FLYING FCK. The BTC address is 1KMfvoGyhRAu7xouFB67FZeRKzFWoBpEb6. I don't know what the fuck is happening and I'm terribly in a financial crisis right now because that money was supposed to be used for my brother's school expenses. I tried contacting Paxful but still never got a reply from the support team. Browsing the website's forum, I saw a lot of people posting the same thing about having their BTC sent out to a completely unknown person though I don't know if it's the same BTC address where my BTC went. I'm so fcked up.

Hello,
We are very sorry that this happened to you, please check your login history under account settings security tab. If you are using same password over multiple websites, it is possible that some other website database was compromised where you had registered before and used same email/password combination on Paxful.
We are not interested of scamming our users, we are in bitcoin long run as we love it so much. We care about security of our users and always tell to secure their account with 2-factor to protect bitcoin. We have alot of cool new features and new services coming out. One of them is Paxful Checkout which will revolutionise commerce

Please check under security tab in account settings from which IP addresses your account was accessed and write about it to our support or just click bottom left corner orange bubble to talk directly with support.
We have thousands of users DAILY using Paxful as a wallet and these complaints about funds being stolen are very isolated cases and happen very rarely.
Also please check our trade volumes as a proof that our website is used by thousands of users.

So you are saying this is an isolated case? Seriously? With lots of issues like this beign posted to your community forum you're saying that it happens very rarely and it's an isolated case? You had the same reason for everyone complaining about it. I even have my 2fa enabled. This is bullshit.

You guys make no attempts at stopping scammers and failed to update the website.I literally explained to you guys at one point how easy it is to prevent scammers and what information to give out to help users prevent getting scammed and you guys failed to listen.

For the record, I am trading on Paxful since over a year now. Had my fair share of scammers, but Paxful always resolved disputes correctly. Paxful always responded to my reports of scammers (blocking accounts, providing IP addressing). I have no complaints whatsoever regarding the people running Paxful.

I'm seller on paxful and I never had problems.
Sometime we need to dispute trades but always win.
Paxful always respond to my mail within 1 or 2 hours.

But I agree LocalBitcoin stay better compared to Paxful.

The fake is of far greater value. In its deliberate attempt to be real, it's more real than the real thing.

What the hell?! If this shit is actually possible, then bitcoin is completely worthless to me from now on. If i understood correctly, he sent you bitcoins, you took them successfully, and all of a sudden coins went to some body else's wallet. That is too much.

Edit: got it. He is probably hacked/trojaned or keylogged...
