Hitbtc told me I was part of the scam because I simply bought amm tokens at the price that they were on the exchange and since I was part of the scaam I will not be refunded. I did nothing wrong except to buy coins. How am I a scammer if I bought off the exchange at the price that they had set?

Hitbtc is big player in many token and make many trader get loss.
You are right, how is it possible to say trader is scammer because just bought token in exchange with any price which has been set?
It is not make sense.

Actually, if they tell you scammer then they also part of scammer because they allowed for all these trades. I'm not sure how come they can call traders are scammers. They should have a system in place to stop scam trading instead of closing or freezing accounts. Until now I don't have an account with them because most of the time I buy and sell on bittrex.

I also got the email accusing me of scamming. I would be more than happy to be part of a class action suit.

IT'S NOT ONLY AMM!!!
IT'S NOT ONLY AMM!!!
IT'S NOT ONLY AMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact the defrauding happens at all kinds of coins and tokens of HitBTC, including which are not based on or related with Ethereum!!!

This is my examine result:

HitBTC is locking all withdrawals after it's failed AMM token trade.
To those who have funds there I strongly recommend to move to another exchange.

HitBTC left AMM trading open for nearly a day after Micromoney and hundreds of users were complaining that something was wrong.

We, the traders and customers they accuse of fraud, told them their site was broken. And they did nothing.

Now they are blaming us and taking our money.

Fraud.

OP, try to please give the whole story from your side before you post something libelous. You are trying to bring a reputation of a site down with no argument except for a link to another forum.

Be good enough to fill us in with the details please.

Details:

Many of us had been following Micromoney (AMM) for a long time, waiting to buy after it got listed on an exchange. HitBTC was the first larger exchange to list AMM. Just after it was listed, the price plummeted, and nobody could explain why. Many of us were frantically buying/selling, not knowing what was happening.

After a few hours the price was almost zero, and it was obvious something was wrong with the code. Several users alerted HitBTC through support tickets and the chatbox. But HitBTC said nothing, and AMM trading was left open for several more hours. The Micromoney team informed us that they had been trying to contact HitBTC directly by phone, but nobody was answering, and there was no official response or communication from HitBTC. Trading was left open, despite numerous warnings from MicroMoney and customers that something was wrong.

After some time HitBTC issued a statement saying that there was a mistake and that all cases would be resolved personally. But today, HitBTC sent out an email saying:

"Due to the malfunction caused by fraud all trades are deemed illegitimate. As you committed trades and supported the fraudulent course of events, the amount of AMM bought will be written of from your account and no refunds are to be made."

So HitBTC is blaming the fraudulent trades on their customers, the same customers that tried for many hours to warn them something was wrong, and that they should stop AMM trading ASAP. But they didn't stop the trading, despite all attempts to warn them something was wrong.

And now they are blaming us, the customers, and our money has been withdrawn from our wallets.

Thank you for this information as I was trying to start a trade with them lately because of token price I have seen there and will like taking advantage for arbitration. Now that somebody will buy a token from there site with the bid and ask price post there and the same transaction will be said scam. I think in a long run this exchangers are going to run with people money.

If they are doing such activities better to report these with the micromoney company. I think HitBtc halted the trading from many days back and the price of AMM felt it's price very low down to 0.35$ per coin.

Its really serious for a site like HiBTC to be engaged in something like this. A site I see as an alternative to the big sites in the industry that have little or no regard to customer satisfaction. I agree that they might have a reason for taking this course of action but blaming people for their own incompetence is something that is over the roof and should not be entertained at all. How can you acsuse someone of scam just by carrying out his own normal activities that didn't start today.
