Will do.

This is actually the second time in 12 hours. First time, was just missing 5 btc, and some hours later, mysteriously returned after sending email (havent had a reply from Gox though!). Now all gone again.

Hindsight is 20/20.   But to help persuade anyone who does not yet use 2-factor auth, hopefully this helps in making an informed decision:

Guys, I was in the platform. I actually saw it all disappear right before my eyes. No record of it in accounts, and no email notification of withdrawal. Don't think its a password issue.

Really complicated.......

So, ive now got an entry on my account page...

2013/04/12 10:21:24    In       4.00000000 BTC    13.00600000 BTC
BTC bought:  4.00000000 BTC at £50.65750
2013/04/12 10:21:10    In       4.00000000 BTC    9.00600000 BTC
BTC bought:  4.00000000 BTC at £50.65750

Before it all went breasts up, i had £450 odd to play with as funds, with the intention of selling another 5btc, and to withdraw all accumulated GBP. Those above orders were not placed by me! They are decent entries, and i would be relatively  happy with it, if i intended to trade at this time, but i wasnt, and i did not place those orders, especially as they are for the same price and for the same btc!??

So all of a sudden i saw 13btc in my funds, and £0. I jumped on it and withdrew to my personal wallet (which didnt show for hours), with the intention of trying to work it out later. I am not making the following up, nor on Silk Road meds...as i clicked Gox account tab, £5325 suddenly appeared as available GBP funds! Yes i tried to withdraw it.......alas site went down, and when returned £0 balance now showing  Sad

Conclusion?.... I initially sent 10btc to Gox, sold 5 at good prices, above happened, and now have 13btc (+30%) returned to my wallet, when that was not my intention. Very weird morning.

As for Gox, i regard them as dangerously flawed, at best, and i will not be putting btc back in, unless they answer to the above.

Thanks for reading. I needed to write this to get the madness out of my head!

I understand your frustration and second that keeping funds sitting on Gox is a bad idea. 

After reading all the complaints and watching the troubles they are having just keeping the bloody exchange running I think I will avoid their services in the future.
