I have some good news!
After 2-3 weeks of waiting my bitcoin withdrawal has finally been processed/sent.
I've almost lost my hope especially because of the long waiting time and because my support inquiries haven't been responded either (they still haven't been responded but withdrawal has been processed so that's fine with me).

Good news, Cogniti!

Unfortunately, my request was not one that was granted.  I have now cancelled it, sold some of the BTC and put in a request for a much smaller BTC withdrawal and an EUR withdrawal.

Cogniti, may I ask how much the BTC request was?  It would be really useful to know what kind of amount they are able to work with...  Ball park or indicative amounts would be great if you are shy!   Smiley

Thanks.

It was a small amount (0.18 BTC).
I cancelled the request two times and eventually the third one has been processed. I don't understand how it works now.

Intersango announced:
"

The system running the hotwallet has halted due to scheduled downtime of power facilities.
All bitcoin transactions will be halted until such time as the system can be manually restarted.

It's hard to say what really is going on with intersango in their recent months. Their communication is vague.

Last time I deposited money I had to wait about 4 weeks for it to be deposited. Then I had to wait for bitcoin withdrawal about the same amount of time (It used to be a few minutes or hours).

They don't reply to support tickets anymore.  Their announcement "The system running the hotwallet has halted due to scheduled downtime of power facilities. All bitcoin transactions will be halted until such time as the system can be manually restarted. " doesn't explain much either.

Anybody knows what's going on with intersango?

Yes, and at least they should release people's money. It's becoming frustrating with no contact from support and unclear communication on their website.

Is there a place where we could report them? Any consumer protection organization that could take care of it?

Still waiting (since November) to get my coins.
An no word from support tickets, etc.

That's common theft. Pure and simple.

If I ever see my coins again, I'll update. In the mean time I'll consider legal measures.

It looks like they have frozen any further orders on the site.  No orders are going through, I have two in a queued state.  I have a requested two withdrawals for 1 BTC and 1000 EUR.  No withdrawals are happening.

Checking at Companies House, there is a proposal to strike the company off.  No returns or accounts have been submitted during 2013.

Has anyone had any withdrawals processed recently?  Is anyone aware of any statement from them?

Thanks.

To me it looks like the persons behind intersango ran with was left in the exchange.
All these weeks no news nor has the site came back up, i fear its the same as with mtgox they disappeared both the same way
I tried edit the bitcoin wiki, to put a warning and messages about all these disappeared exhanges ( sadly i can not )
Many have been shutdown in a very nasty way gladly i had taken my funds out of them because i became frustrated to see funds added taken 2 months to be processed
When i tried to get the btc out it took 4 weeks, that sort of things make the red flag rise in my experience.
If companies start delay or hardly do what they should and paying takes longer then it should you can bet something fishy is going on.

i put 16 btc in intersango aug 2012, i withdrew 12 btc to uk bank in the spring time 2013, bought 1 btc late summer, then the alarm bells started ringing i started trying to get all my btc out by verifying a bitstamp account and moving to them. i had delays verifying so in the meantime to get my coins the hell out of intersango i tried to put my 6 btc's into my friends bitcoin account (bitstamp). i waited weeks for this so raised a support ticket and was ignored so i raised another asking to speak to a human and simply got a reply "no" and the ticket shut down. i cancelled the transaction and requested another (the same) and nothing. now the wwwintersango.com site seems to of disappeared. hence why im vague about exact times and dates. do not know what to do? im a big btc fan but have been burnt. Other than a personal meeting with Amir Taaki i do not know what to do who to see or where to go to get MY money out. the normal banking system already scammed our money, btc is supposed to be the alternative to that but money grabbing arse holes will always exist it would seem.

Any help would be much appreciated??

Their website is no longer available.  You would like to think that common courtesy would dictate some kind of customer statement about the removal of the service... but I have received no message from them.  By them, I mean these people:

http://web.archive.org/web/20131006123933/https://intersango.com/about-us.php

The ones who said "We have a long trusted history of honest, secure and safe operations within the exchange market."

The way I see it, we have the following options:

If there are enough people and enough interest, we can get together and see if we can get some kind of legal representation. 
We can individually go through the small claims process [https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money/overview]
We can go to the police and report these incidences as cases of theft.

I am unsure of how to proceed and would really appreciate it if the individuals involved, and that would be:

Donald Norman [CEO - so, the buck should really stop with him.]
Amir Taaki
Patrick Strateman

would act on their obligations and duties to their customers.


Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.

Maybe someone who lives in London could pay them a visit?

Intersango Ltd
3rd Floor 14 Hanover Street
London
England
W1S 1YH

Although I very much doubt they will be in person there.

I am from outside of UK so I can't do too much.

The sole director of Intersango Ltd at this time is Amir Taaki. The company will be dissolved in about two months so anyone wanting to make a claim should really do so ASAP - it will be much harder to get money out of a company that doesn't exist any more, and liabilities of the company are not liabilities of Mr Taaki.

@cogniti:  The Hanover Street address is an off the shelf company address provided by an organisation that specialises in providing these things.

@grifferz:  Thanks for the information.  Do you have a claim or do you wish to get one started?

I think I am going to go ahead with a claim.  Does anybody else wish to proceed with a claim or does anybody else already have a UK based claim against them going?

Neither, I am just sad that bitcoin in the UK is associated with such people. Best of luck to you.

The most efficient solution would probably be to have some gorillas wrestle the truth out of him.
