I believe they are doing the same to me.  Do you mind sharing the procedure you followed to get back your funds?

Can you share the procedure to get the funds back?

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

That is strange, Bitstamp is legit and one of the most trustworthy exchangers. It's not their habit to keep users without support and not solving the issues. The thing is that they are obliged with very strong AML laws and rules imposed by regulators so they have to obey certain procedures when it comes to any transactions they have some doubt or suspicion. I'm sure they will get in touch and you don't give up, just try to establish contact with every possible channel.

they are not prepared for this increase in usage.

totally under staffed and pathetic.

I am awaiting a wire for over 1 week

They need to increase their performance because right now it is totally crap.

I have used them for years but will 100% be looking elsewhere if they don't get things moving.

Seconded, which the things you do said was true which this is one of the most good exchangers I do like. Fast support and Fast service back in the past but now seems they are fading and do already have some issues specially on deposits. Confirmation is too long and haven't been received any words from them which is very unusual to happen which is entirely different when it was before.

They sent me an email and closed my account three years ago, which I did not notice. Recently, I noticed that I left bitcoins in that account and forgot them for years. I cannot login to my account anymore. I sent emails to their support email address but got nothing replies until now. Do anybody know what can I do about this?

Is there any update about this now?
Because I really want to know, if there is any.
I have been hearing this kind of review about Bittrex but not with Bitstamp.Though both  exchange are good.
I feel  it could be that Bitstamp found something with your account, which is why they hold your Bitcoin.

Now I feel there is no exchange to be trusted again. The moment you feel you can trust any of them, you hear an update that makes you have a change of heart.
Please, let's  all try and learn how to avoid leaving our coins in an exchange sites to avoid stories like this.

Bitstamp is located in Bulgaria and I think they bank there too.

Bulgarian banks blocked all exchanges. See

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/7i6eiq/banks_in_bulgaria_blocked_accounts_of_all/

I expect Bitstamp is scrambling to find another european bank to deal with them.

I have an account at Bitstamp, and when I want to deposit, it displays GORENJSKA BANKA, which is a Slovenian bank. It might be that they use more banks within the Euro zone, but this at least shows that it isn't Bulgarian.

And another thing, Bitstamp isn't located at Bulgaria. It was a Slovenian exchange at first, but due to legal reasons, they are currently based in Luxembourg, where they were also granted their license.

That license allows Bitstamp to function as money transmitter, which is something a lot of the current exchanges can't say. They almost all are illegal money transmitters, which at some point may cost them badly.

Nah. That's complete and utter rubbish. Bitstamp has always been Slovenian and they've dicked around with maintaining a postbox and brass nameplate in various EU jurisdictions over the years.
