Hello, all

I am a user of Yobit.
I have a big issue. my account is freezed suddenly even i didn't do anything
When i logged in it just appered "Your account is freezed. Access to some actions is limited.
But i don't understand because i just logged in and didn't press anything.

It already over 1weeks and even i sent ticket many times to support and Pm, there are never answer me yet.
But first one i got replying mail and i could see one link "0.001btc , say thanks"
It seems i have to press for paying 0.001btc to deal with? so i paid 0.0001btc.
I also answered the question.

its the replying mail.

You locked yourself by clicking at button "Freeze withdrawals from my account (I suspect hacking)" at Settings page.

For security check we must ask you some information before unlock.
Please describe in this ticket: approximate date of registration at Yobit and your last actions  (deposits, withdrawals, orders, etc.)
with approximate amounts.

Say thanks
0.00100000
BTC

I really wish i can handle with it here.
Is anybody same situation like me or who knows how to deal with it ?

Thank you.

Did you just wake up from a yearlong hibernation? Yobit has been doing this for ages. There are hundreds if not thousands of scam accusations and complaints here. A simple search will give you enough reading material to read for weeks.

But first one i got replying mail and i could see one link "0.001btc , say thanks"
It seems i have to press for paying 0.001btc to deal with? so i paid 0.0001btc.
Say thanks
0.00100000
BTC

That part, if true, sounds like a ruthless scam. It's almost like extortion (or it probably is). It sounds like saying thanks and paying the fee is not optional. It's in fact required! You paid 0.0001 BTC and you are then reminded to say thanks and pay 0.001 BTC. That's audacity at it's worst.

I'd probably not respond to anyone that is claiming to be yobit. In this instance he is also asking you for 0.001 BTC in order to restore your account. To my knowledge, yobit simply does not ask for money in return of unlocking one's account. Nobody has successfully done that. Even the person that replied to OP was merely asking for a donation, which is completely optional.

Almost of these people asking for money when your account is locked are most likely scammers posing as yobit, trying to get you to send over your savings. Unless you can verify that it's actually yobit, and it is compulsory (not a tip), then send it.

Apparently you self-locked your account, whether you actually did it or not. If you received the same message as OP, then simply respond with the requested details. Although there are no guarantees when this will be sorted out.
