Last night I bought ETZ from yobit.net at price around 200$ and then sold them at 294$ and the selling was done and the balance of my ETZ became zero. I am sure because I could not sell them again. but later I saw the ETZ coins are still in my wallet and not sold and the price was fallen down to 120$. this is a loss for me.
why this happens at this site? this is scam.
I think producers of this coin is the yobit or at least related to yobit. because the only exchange selling it soon after the fork was yobit and the price became high soo in this exchange and buying was possible but selling was not possible when the price was high and the site was hanging and not working properly when I tried to sell when price was high.
take care of this site and never use it.
use only reliable exchanges.
also I have sent some tickets to this site from one month ago but no reply I have received still.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

I am trully sorry to hear of yet another houx sponsored by Yobit.
Unfortunatelly for all of us, I think the previous comment, posted by timerland came as a call for reality:

You'd think that they have full responsibility, and i believe you. But if you think about it who else will be able to believe you? And will yobit even care about this? They've seen so many cases of this that they're probably not even going to reply to you let alone compensate you.

You simply have no proof other than what you wrote above, anhd that is definitely not conclusive evidence that yobit had an insider job done or got DDos'd.

Even if it is an insider job, don't you think that the support is on the "inside" as well?

Just think of it as buying a lesson, man. Don't store money you don't wanna lose on exchanges.

As depressive as this comment sounds, the man has a point. More or less, all of us ripped off by Yobit (and similar hoaxsers) have printscreens and we have some indications. We stronglly beleive that the truth and righteousness are on our side. But, do these printscreens represent a conclusive evidence? Well, no quite. They do indicate that something really odd happened and if Yobit's support would want to, they could get down to the bottom of it. Will they do that? Hard chance as getting to bottom of it would mean that they are responsible and that they would have to repare the injustice. It's far cheaper to keep the eyes and ears shut and wait for it to go away.

They will keep silent and we ain't never gonna see our money back. We paid the lesson very dearlly. The cherry on the top of this cake in my case is the fact that I actually borrowed 1.25 DASH-es and now I am expected to return them. I am way way over my credit limit, so I cannot even raise a credit with the bank to return these DASH-es. I lost my money and I lost a trust of the man I borrowed the DASH-es from. Well done.

It has only left for us to raise a red flag and warn all the others on what might find them. Since I cannot do much more, that is exactlly my intention. I will make sure to warn as much people as possible about Yobit and at least, that way make them loose what they stole from me.


-----------------------
P.S.: It is embarrassing to ask, but if there are any good souls out there willing to help a collegue in trouble, I would very very much appreciate any donations. Sorry for being unpolite, but I am really cornered and I need all the help I can get. Thanks to all. Here are my wallets:

Thank you ssm4n for the support and the concern. Be sure, I will keep everyone posted on the developement.
Sadly, at this point, there are none. I opened a second ticket with their support (since they keep ignoring the first one).

It has been over 30 days since I opened a ticket with Yobit's quasi suport. Since than there has been no attempt from their side to resolve the issue or even provide a sustainable explanation to what happened to my BTC wallet. I think that it is way pass the time where I could hope Yobit will do that, so it is pretty safe to claim that

Yobit is nothing but a bunch of THIEVES and SCAMMERS.


In the previous posts I presented what happened. I shared all the info I had and all the updates as they appeared. Do go trough each post and judge for yourself if my claim is too harsh.

I even tried to contact them over their Telegram group (https://t.me/yobitnet) but soon after I typed few messages (which were in no way offensive or insulting) the group got closed for me. Maybe I got banned or maybe the group just ended up closed ... I cannot claim either way. All I know is when I try to access it, I get an error code 400 and the error message: CHANNEL_PRIVATE. Again, you will be the judge of that.

It has only left for me to issue a fair warning to all the community:

PULL OUT OF YOBIT IF YOU STILL CAN AND AVOID IT IN WIDE CIRCLE


I hope this will help other memebers not to end up like me (and as far as I can see, at least a couple of other victims here).

A BIG tnx to all the members sharing their opinon here, giving me the directions and the objective insigts. I can only hope that this lesson I have paid for dearly will serve to prevent anyone else going the same path.

BTW, today I am removing a question mark in the title of this topic.

I was hoping that things would be done to your benefit in the end,but maybe you do not need to give up on this.You should try to contact their support on a regular basis,and also post on every forum,reddit,twitter,facebook and wherever you remember.I see you have some contact in Russia,so why not report this case to their authorities?Chance that it will do something are very small,but I would personally try to exhaust all the possibilities to find out the truth.

I'd say you have a rat (Remote Access Trojan) on your PC from some newly released altcoin, nobody has to login to your account to steal coins when you are using it as they can just YoBit Code balances out.

Thank you for following up. I am posting a red alert wherever I can. The least I can do now is warn the others on the potential danger. As for reporting to authorities, I will follow up on that too. To tell you the truth, I don't expect any miracle coming out of that, which is why I kind of delayed with it.

Thank you for a comment, but it was not a remote access trojan nor could it be any other malware for that matter. It would be so simple if it was, but it wasn't. If you will go trough earlier posts, you will see why. Long story short:
  • both the devices I use are/were clean 100%,
  • both the devices were off at the time,
  • a separate device (mobile phone) for a 2FA (TOTP codes),
  • time schedule on/off on the mobile phone (it was off at 2AM)  + fingerprint unlocking,
  • no activities from my IP addresses between 2018-01-04 22:06 and 2018-01-05 08:37
  • no login notification
  • no new IP aprouval notification

I went trough my security dozns of time and found nothing out of the ordenary. Not a single thing.
The only proof of what happened to my BTC wallet is laying within Yobit logs and apparently they don't need to, don't want to and don't care to look at them.

They are making a killing from all these transactions. if you look at their account https://etherscan.io/address/0xf5bec430576ff1b82e44ddb5a1c93f6f9d0884f3 you will see they have a very nice stash of ETH.

I have been sending support requests, tried PM, facebook, twitter, reddit etc. Nothing helps with these people. I think they know we can not do much. You can not block their wallets or reverse the transactions and they are pretty much untouchable in Russia. The only thing that could be done is to get their server ceased as it is in the USA, but again unless you are a USA citizen I don't think there is much one can do.

It's a sad state of affairs, the technology is great but I think it will not succeed due to exchanges like yobit as people will loose faith in their security. I have been buying a lot of coins and tokens from many exchanges.....trust me it's a non stop uphill battle....all the exchanges I have dealt with have given me problems and they take absolutely no responsibility for your looses or missed opportunities.  When I sent my ETH to yobit 1ETH was worth about $940, it then shot up to over $1027, so had I had my ETH I could of made a nice profit, now it's down to $867 so I have made a nice loss....well maybe I will have a total loss...still to be determined. 

Unfortunately this is where banks still hold the advantage. :-(

Tnx for sharing and I am trully sorry to read about so many negative experiances with YOBIT.
I have tryed doing something with the Moscow police dept but I don't have high hopes there. I'm not a Russian citizen. On top of that, there is no Yobit registered in Russia chamber of commerce. So, the big question is to whom to turn.

Until recent, I kept hoping everything will be resolved. When I joined YOBIT, there were some negative reviews. Most of the issues were solved in certain peroiod of time - purhaps long, but nevertheless they got solved. However, none of these reviews indicated a cold blooded theft like the one that happened to me. It has been 2 months since and I have not even an attempted explanation from their support. They are playing deaf and dumb.

Shameless theft - nothing more and nothing less.

Unfortunately, the lesson I paid for dearly.

So, to all you good people out there PULL OUT AND STAY AWAY FROM YOBIT!!!

I do not know how true this is, it's already a scam, but they say there's been a lot of transactions, and there are complaints that money is being steadily stealing! So I brought out all my money from there!

yobit has been experiencing ''problems'' since forever . just read around here , there are a ton of complaints about them . the best thing we all can do i just stop using them , when they don't have volume it will be over soon for them.

Niceman, The exact same thing happened to me. No reply from the scammers at yobit. I will post pictures later. I should have listened to all the people saying this site was a scam.

Yeeeeah, um Yobit has always been sketchy. That really isn't news to anyone around here. Look at this signature campaign that was running forever and how sketchy that was (is? idk).

The leader also got arrested in moscow so I mean, it's a dead exchange. If you have anything on Yobit I hope you can get it off, but it sounds unlikely at this point.

Maybe now Moscow police department will consider my complaint.

Edit:
I just came across a complete website dedicated to stopping this guy: http://stopkrymov.com/

Honestly, I can kiss my money goodbye, but you guys ... PULL OUT WHILE YOU CAN!!!

BTW, today I am removing a question mark in the title of this topic.

If it is channel_private then it's probably that they have removed you from the group. It does not say that it has been closed or anything like that, it's just private to you. And it seems like they are doing it to hide people's complaints just like they do on their own trollbox.

We've been warning people about yobit ever since it turned to crap, really. But nobody seems to be listening and every single day there seems to be more yobit accusations coming out, with people screaming for help. And we can only watch.

So no, your conclusion is completely valid and I stand by it 100%.

Your problem isn't even the worst. But it sufficiently demonstrates how little yobit support helps and even attempts to help.

Hello,

I was also robed on YObit on May-04 at 05:42 am. My 480 USD balance was used to buy BTC (0.05) and after that complete BTC balance was clean out!.

Also using 2fa + mail code authorization. I have not receive mail of successful  login, no login during that period.

I work 5 years as IT security officer in my company, and knows a lot of all kind and methods for been haked, fished etc. but this is or so sophisticated attack or someone from inside of YObit is involved! No other explanation.

How ever, reading all this posts (what I had to done before I decide to trade on Yobit), there is a small chances to get even a response from support, not to talk about refund. Only think I have is to inform so many people to

STAY AWAY FROM YObit!!
