I have the same situation. Support is not responding. I think it has to do with smart contracts on ETH. Apparently YObit has not updated their ETH wallet and so they do not accept deposits with smart contracts.

All the deposits seem to be falling into this account https://etherscan.io/address/0xf5bec430576ff1b82e44ddb5a1c93f6f9d0884f3 someone is collection a nice nest egg.

My sum is not quite as high as yours but I would be really P@$%@$#%F if the would not release 15 ETH. I would spam the crap out of them.

Good luck.

ps: There seems to be a user dominikherzog that responded once to a previous support ticket of mine. He is active on the chats but does not seem to be looking at support tickets.

Yoshit is a well known scam exchange in the cryptosphere - that's why moderators have deleted their thread.

A simple search for Yobit in the scam section would have shown you this. It's a hard lesson, but in future you should be more diligent & do some research on whatever exchange you send your hard earned coins to.

Unofficial & Uncensored SYSCOIN thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4748031.0
Do not trust Yobit/HitBTC/C-cex/Poloniex/WEX/KuCoin/LiveCoin scam exchanges or shady ICO's run by known scam companies like HashCoins/Ambisafe/Bountyhive etc - they WILL scam you!
Use due diligence & do research. Buy the coins, sell the coins - don't invest in stupid shit. If your questions aren't answered - don't touch it.

I have had a few transactions with Yobit and they were successful. This is the first time I am having a problem. So based on my previous experience I though the exchange was ok. Unfortunately the ETH smart contracts issue appeared. I had bought ETH before on coinbase and transferred to Yobit without a problem. It seems bitstamp is the cause of all this crap, they simply started sending ETH as smart contracts and everything fell apart. Of course the support at Yobit definitely needs some work.

Same, I think that yobit doesn't support deposits by contracts yet.

These kind of issues are to be expected with yobit. They are pretty much one of the worst exchanges around and if anything goes wrong, I have no idea what else you should expect other than the customer support straight up ignoring you.

People have been warning about others about this exchange forever, and others still continue to use it for some reason.

Their account on bitcointalk hasn't been active for a few months as well.
