Hello

I got scammed at www.yobit.net. When I logged in today, I found my BTC wallet, ETH wallet empty. Besides this my Liza investbox was closed also. First I did not understand and then I frantically started looking in orders history and other places. I noticed that on YobiCodes I saw entries that tracked that somehow my BTC balance and ETH balance were used to create YobiCodes entries. My entire 2.14 BTC and 1.42 ETH balance was showing negative transaction for some YobiCodes creation.

After research on online focum I checked the YobiCodes link under my user name and found that there was certain codes that were activated for my ETH and BTC balance. I came to understand that this activation means that my cryptos are gone and someone else has claimed my coins.

This is ridiculous and I am not sure how to resolve this. I have sent support request to Yobit but have not got answers.

Has anyone encountered this and is there a way to get your cryptos back.

I have no idea how the YobiCodes work and I never initiated any transaction. Hence it is strange that suddenly my coins are gone

Please help

Thanks and regards

Unfortunately, you are one of many YoBit users who are robbed in the same way. I do not want to kill hope that coins can be back to you, but every case similar to yours is not resolved in favor of the user. It is obvious that there is a security problem in YoBit and that someone use that codes to steal users coins. One user is explain about YoBit codes :

Quote
Yobit code (like codes inside some other exchanges) are centralized way of transferring funds inside the platform itself without needing to make a transaction on chain. You turn your funds into a code which is redeemable by anyone who has an account on that exchange, in this case Yobit. the hacker probably didn't want to pay any withdrawal fees so he took the easy way!


More cases like your :

First: you must do research before using any exchange, yobit has many scam accusations, these scam accusations are very serious and few have been resolved, if you had done some research, then you would know that yobit is the worst exchange exist

Secondly: your problem will not be solved, I'm sorry but if we are talking about yobit, then forget, because yobit does not solve the problems of your clients, I even am shocked to see some stubborn people who continue to use yobit

Third: you can hire a lawyer and report your case to the police, this is the only way you can recover your BTC and ETH

I use yobit frequently, and find it hard to believe yobit has anything to do with your money dissappearing.

Are you certain you did not follow any links prior to the incident, or downloaded anything sketchy?

I am sorry to say this, but your money is most likely long gone if the code statuses says "activated".

Maybe yobit should add a delay to yobicode claims, so that the creator of the code can cancel it before activation finalizes.

It wouldnt be surprising if this feature is used more frequently by hackers stealing money, than legitimate use-cases.

Unfortunately, I'd probably say that the chances of you getting your funds back at this stage is extremely slim. Either there is a hack into your account, with someone generating a Yobicode after liquidating all your assets and investments within your yobit account, or it may have possibly been an inside job given the amount of times this has happened (though you have absolutely no proof that it's actually something that yobit has done).

You could ask yobit support about who redeemed the yobicodes, and that you are provided with their personal info, so that you have a chance to track him down. However, that is unlikely with the privacy implications, and yobit support's general unresponsive nature.

I genuinely feel sorry for your loss, but it's probably best to not expect any sum of money to be returned. Yobit is a shady exchange that is filled with issues, probably isn't fully licensed, and has a ton of risks to use. Besides, you just never store that much money on an exchange at one time. Hopefully you take that into account in the future.
