Attempted to withdraw 2.7k PXC which never made it into the blockchain because apparently they were on a different wallet version. After 1 week all I have is "we are working on it". At this time it's safe to say I won't see my coins.

I have posted a detailed description of the issue https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=294224.0
Please be careful about Coins-E. In fact, better still trade elsewhere - there are no dearth of exchanges right now.

It's looks like coins-e support is not updated with the news or pxc team does not tell them.

Had you bothered trading elsewhere...you would also have known that this happened because their wallets used on coins-e server are out of date and not compatible with the current iteration.  You need to talk to their support team and demand that they update their wallet so you can withdraw out.

Its pure laziness, coins-e is probably sitting there with a daemon that wont update and just dont care, or are hoping that it goes away and they can just take the coins (or already have taken the coins in the name of "a fork")

They have updated their client. I had withdrawn the remaining PXCs and they worked fine.

I must have tried contacting their support 50 times. Still nothing. I think they are just hoping people will get tired and give up and then they will enjoy their coins.

The problem is not limited to PXC. One user has even reported his deposited BTC never showed up and their team is still 'looking' into it.

I don't think I will get back the 12k PXCs, but I hope they won't be able to scam anyone else.

Also, please bump this topic now and then https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=294224.0

I don't want others to go in blindly. Everybody should know about them; and then if they decide to trade there its upto them.

Bump.

If you trade there and lose its your own fault - you have been warned.

Is it safe to say that the trading values on coins-e isn't current at all?
