Hello

just a warning to all trading tokens on this exchange.

What happened::
I bought some TaaS tokens and withdrew them from the exchange to my wallet. They took the tokens but never sent them to me. They posted a fake TX (only input data but no tokens inside to be transferred)
Withdrawal request: http://imgur.com/a/dFTCw
TX link: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xea0c67fa876f93768a6e2738ed521b61bdc1409f03a2d6075ae4ac24a43df74e

As you can see the input data contains a transfer command to my wallet for 424.5 tokens but they never added the tokens to the contract as they would be visible in the TX.
Example of a valid token transfer: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xe3644edf01e903c97df4ad6c1d60f70980250f796d98c969b6a7427da339a6c7

I reported all my findings to them but they don't answer even when I see that they read my message (telegram). I also tried to call them but no answers for 2 days already.
I got reports of other people transferring the same token successfully so I guess they are selectively scamming in order to keep people on their exchange longer.

So be careful with dealing with this exchange! Well if you have coins/tokens on it there is nothing you can do anyway I just wish you luck.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

From what I can see the tx indeed does not carry any sort of TaaS tokens, let alone 400~ of them.

Do you have any proof that they are selectively scamming?

Since you have contacted liqui support there is really nothing else to do in the meanwhile than to wait for a reply. I do think that liqui is a trustworthy site, they've spent a lot of money trying to build up their brand and image to get to wher ethey are right now so just scamming a few hundred/few thousand dollars isn't worth it for them at all in my opinion.

Although I have to say that their support is definitely not the best. Usually issues gets resolved but not until at least nearly a week later.

While I am searching I found a couple of complains about them regarding handling  ethereum and its token . I want to sell some tokens there but now I am backing off until see what is really going on .
