Maybe it's time to start auditing ICO projects? After all, this is the only way to reduce the problem of a scam.
Yes, I agree with you! Try http://audit.darfchain.com/
These guys know how to provide audit and recognize scams Smiley

I don't think you should do that immediatly, they gave me the chance to exchange all my cryptocoins, but not my euros (the bank options are not there), but since they don't reply to my 3 weeks ago emails or do not chat on twitter, this is not a way to work. Even though they open again my account I don't think I will work again with them. I like to know what I have done wrong. As I said I think it is crossed information and I created an account in GDAX with my valid data and they closedthe accounts with any justification. I suppose that was the system that detected me as I was 2 persons with same data Sad

I had money in there yesterday and when i tried to transfer to another wallet it said i didn't have the funds, and tried to charge me double the amount i was moving.  The most i could move was 5 dollars, and some change.

I sold this morning etereum, on coinbase, to 588 euros, coinbase registered the transaction considering the etereum to 488 euros, but it has never been to that amount. That is a true scam.

Coinbase STOLE my Money!!!

I wire deposit from WellsFargo bank to Coinbase on Dec 26 in the amount of $5000. Up until today (Jan 5), it has not appeared in my CoinBase account (It has been debited from the bank within the same day)

Before that, I tried smaller amount first ($1000) on Dec 23, It was sucessfully credited in the same day in the CoinBase.

So all the information has been verified and correctly enter.

Multiple email, open ticket, DM to their Twitter has not been replied. Calling their support is just wasting. Time. I literally was put on hold for 1 hour without talking to anyone. This is ridiculous. IF this is not scam, I don’t know what is this.

Same thing happened to me. Coinbase recently took $1000 from my bank account through ACH transfer but never credited my Coinbase account. They do not respond to my phone calls and emails. What did you do to get your money back?

I sent a complaint to my bank in California. They say they will investigate and should be able to reverse the transaction. I also filed a complaint with CFPB - I spoke to them they said they have a ton of complaints against Coinbase. I will update my status in a week or two. Coinbase claims to be insured by FDIC so you could probably file a complaint there too. Please people stay away from this scam company. I think most if not all of these  bitcoin exchanges are scammers. Especially if not in the US it may be a lot harder to recover your money.

Update: I finally got my Coinbase/GDAX account funded with my $1000 after filing a complaint with CFPB and my bank. Once you file a complaint they will go to work immediately to recover your money. Who says banks aren't trustworthy? I got mine back with their help.

I withdrew the money back to my bank account by ACH and it only took one day to get back to my bank. I don't understand why it took Coinbase over a week to fund my GDAX account via ACH but only took one day for the same funds to return to my bank. If you're having such a problem with a bitcoin/altcoin exchange always file a complaint with your bank!

As for me I'm done with the crypto space and just glad to have my money back. There is too much potential for fraud in this market. If the crypto market takes a nose dive tomorrow I bet the exchanges would probably run off with all your money! I don't mind taking the market risk but when you can't even trust the integrity of the exchanges with your money that's when it's time for me to leave.

I had opened an account with counbase Jan 2018 itself. Bought Etherium, LTC and BTC for few thousand dollars.. After a week i rcvd the coins. Gaining confidence i bought BTC worth $5000. Then on 25th Jan, 2018 i transfered LTC and BTC into my other wallet, as BTC worth $5000 had not yet arrived. In few moments my account was disabled giving the status of "Account disabled temporarily". Talked to support on 27th Jan over phone after geting ther number. To my amusement i was told somebody called and said this account has been hacked, so coinbase put a temp disablment on my login. I tried to explain that no compromise has happened. I have user id, password and 2FA security on my account, but the guy on other end was not ready to listen. Although i have received the mail after disablement of my account that BTC worth $ 5000 have arrived in the account. but i m not able to login..
I like to ask them. A person has login id, password and google authenticator code. Even after that u r saying the account has been compromised ? Plz open my account., i dont need any password reset, i have everything intact.
My small son needs a transplant and i had put in the money so that it would be added by $ 1000 or $ 2000 in few weeks. I m in a fix.. Seeing my son i have nothing expect to see him. I have in total invested $ 8000 in coinbase so that i may add few more thousand dollars to it. But i lost the money for treatment. Plz somebody help me for Gods sake.. I beg plz enable my account so that i can get back my money for treatment... Plz Plz Plz somebody help me.

So sorry to hear the issues you are encountering with coinbase... It break my heart to read such comments  Sad  Cry This is not something new, their support is only getting worst and worst the last days.

The best advise I can give you is to head up to Reddit and comment on some post over there, exposing their activities to the light is the best thing one could do by now. There are people in the same situation but with larger amounts and they have been waiting for months behind a response from coinbase.

This is the last active post where someone is asking for his 20,000k, if you can go over there and make a comment on that post people will know about it and maybe upvote it to make it visible for coinbase https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/7t5cal/coinbase_olga_coinbase_dan_please_help_20000_wire/

And consider starting a lawsuit against them. Hope you grand-son recovers well.

Good day everybody

I want to share information about my account in Coinbase, I have more than 700 BTC which I could not pull the funds are there, already more than one month I did not get an answer from the support, all answered by robots each email reply, my account position is currently frozen condition, I could only see the contents of the balance but could not do transactions, I've been thinking if this continues without the news this week, I will report the company's coin base to the FBI, CIA, USA investigation for committing fraud 700 BTC to me.

This exact thing has happened with me today just not with an amount like yours. I had 2.1 BTC in there and now they have just vanished i cant move them out of the account, coinbase are not answering any of my questions when i ring them. "Specialist" are meant to be looking into this but then they i get emails back telling me then are compensating me 0.30p (British Pounds) which is nothing compared to the amount they have stolen from me.

Also has anyone heard of a company called Blockcypher when coinbase are saying my funds are apparently stuck, I feel like Blockcypher is associated with Coinbase. When i go to see my funds it takes me to blockcypher's page and when i ask a coinbase representative about this they say they have never heard of it and i need to try and contact them, I have suspicions that Blockcypher is a compnay associated with Coinbase which is being use to Sisyphean (Steal) money from people money.

Any help with be appreciated.

Thanks

First of all as further as I know it is not scam. 2ndly I think coinbase does not support your country. If coinbase or bitcoin does not support a country that means they do not support via phone or email, or form. And if they disable any account then they give a chance to transfer fund from you account to an external wallet (coinbase wallet not supported).
