I understand the risk of withdrawal delays.  But the delays have to be reasonable.  I've been waiting now for 7 days, that is an unreasonable amount of time.  Also they state withdrawals are processed with 24 hours and they email automated responses to support tickets saying withdrawals are taking up to 72 hours.

That is egregious.  They should not mislead and dupe customers.  They should clearly the risk of significant withdrawals delays taking "weeks" and customer service responses taking weeks.

If they were upfront and did not mislead me, I would not have initiated the withdrawal.  Now my coin is frozen and I'm on the hook for any price movements.  That is entirely their fault.  And there is no way to reach them.

This tells me everything I need to know about Mt Polo.  Keep acting like this and you're going to lose all your customers.  You think I'm going to deposit anything with you motherf@#kers again?

My hunch is that something terrible is going on at Mt Polo

They are legally based in Delaware, so there's still a way to get the law/courts involved if they decide they can defraud their customers without repercussions.  Send me my f@#king GAME withdrawal.

So you're going to hold up my GAME withdrawal for 8+ days until after the MobileGo ICO???  Are you punting with my coin?  Are you even holding my GAME still?  Or you planning to sell it hoping to buy it back after the ICO at a lower price and take away MY gain for yourself?  How come support hasn't contacted me in 5+ days?

And why do you advertise 24 hour withdrawals and 72 hour processing for withdrawal approvals?  Why do you not warn customers that you are experiencing very significant withdrawal delays?

Poloniex is acting like a fraudulent exchange and a fraudulent business.  You can bet I'm going to document all my incurred losses and missed gains and your reassurances of 72hr withdrawal processing times.  And if the loss is great enough, you can bet I will expend all my legal options to make myself whole. 

This is how good people end up in jail.  Karpeles was also just trying to continue operating.

 There are many many sites outside of the Cryptocurrency world that handle 40k users online and consider it a light or even a very light load.
 Poloniex needs to put a LOT more effort into getting scaled up into a platform that can handle the load they have - they have been FAILING FOR MONTHS at that.


You are seriously expecting a new exchange for cutting-edge crypto, experiencing ("ZOMG FOUR MOONTHS!!11!") unprecedented volume and load, to handle it like E*trade or Charles Schwab's OptionsXpress?  Oh puh-leez.  Roll Eyes

Mange your unrealistic expectations.  This is crypto, not retail.  Poloniex is not Amazon or NASDAQ (yet  Wink).

Polo's explosive volume/load may continue for many more months.  Better get used to the growing pains.

If you can't, perhaps Polo just isn't for you.  Try https://bitsquare.io/ instead, it's decentralized!

 Polo has been around quite a bit longer than that "four months", and their unhandled growth issues go back longer than that as well.
 They are NOT a "new exchange" by Crypto standards, and they are not a new site by Web standards in general.
 I also find it interesting that Huobi and OKCoin were not having comparable issues back when they were a TON busier than Polo is now (at least on the exchange side, I can't speak to customer service on those two exchanges).

 No, they're probably not as big on the value of the trading done on their exchange as E*Trade or Scottrade (Schwab is quite a bit smaller on volume than those 2) - but they probably deal with a comparable number of TRADES in a day and might deal with more users online at one time than even E*Trade does.

 Even at THAT level, that's not all THAT big by website standards - but they've been VERY slow to get their infrastructure ramped up, and the issues have been getting WORSE not BETTER indicating they are not putting enough effort into DEALING with them.

 And no, Poloniex is NOT for me - I gave up on them a couple weeks ago but it took me some time to get my farm pointed elsewhere, and then they decided to hold on to my last withdrawal for WAY TOO MANY DAYS (not nearly as bad as PayPal at THEIR worst, but starting to remind me of the reasons PayPal has had *2* class action lawsuits filed against it, one settled by consent decree the other currently in process (discovery phase last time I checked) but largely about the SAME issues that were supposed to get CHANGED in accordance with the consent decree and never did get fixed - like arbitrary no-reason "hang on to your money for months and never give an explanation" occurances in LARGE numbers).



I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

I think everyone needs to check out poloniexscam.com, it is one of many new websites over the last few weeks outing the dodgy behaviours of poloniex and compiling info to assist the upcoming lawsuits.

Quote: This website (poloniex.com) is a fraud, designed to take as much of your BitCoin as possible. The disclaimer on their website is illegal, you can sue them, they at no point mention the website is run by computer software and manipulated by insider traders, which is illegal. If you or someone you know has been affected by this website, please contact us and we will post your comments on our website as soon as possible.

there is a large number of lawsuits being built over the last few weeks regarding their actions and the community has been donating a large sum to fund the fight against poloniex.

The disclaimer poloniex make you agree to is illegal under USA federal laws and this in itself is enough to bring polo into a world of hurt.
The most important thing to note is the lawyers currently involved are more interested in the long delays or complete lack of response from the polo support and the excessively unnecessary delays in withdrawal requests.. they have been hinting that these actions will  be the smoking gun in the case to prove their actions in the market are intentional

more undeniable facts here : https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@shaerox/poloniex-on-the-way-to-become-mt-gox-cryptsy


Be safe guys.. if this all goes bad it will hurt the crypto community in a big way, we need to stick together and out these exchanges and dodgy characters damaging the future of crypto.

Hey guys,

It's much quicker to just send in an anonymous tip to the FBI.  What Poloniex is doing is criminal.  Obviously, there'll be lawsuits.  But it speeds everything up if you get the FBI involved.  The FBI loves this kind of a case.  They will definitely devote resources to it.  One of the largest crypto exchanges is a criminal enterprise stealing customer funds...the FBI will be all over this.  This will make Mt. Gox and Karpeles situation look like a cakewalk.

Send in a tip to the FBI.  You can do it anonymously.

https://tips.fbi.gov/

That's what I'm planning to do.  I'm going to give Polo, Tristan and Co. a few more days and a chance to respond and send my withdrawal.

I still cannot believe how incredibly dumb these people running Polo are.  Their greed and amateurism is going to land them in jail.  What good is stealing coin, front running customers when you'll be in a cell not making any coin for 15 years.

I'm reducing my stake on polo a little - always good to be safe and spread risk around the exchanges

EDIT: LSK seems to be transferring out fine

Hey guys,

It's much quicker to just call your local FBI field office.  What Poloniex is doing is criminal.  Obviously, there'll be lawsuits.  But it speeds everything up if you get the FBI involved.  The FBI loves this kind of a case.  They will definitely devote resources to it.  One of the largest crypto exchanges is a criminal enterprise stealing customer funds...the FBI will be all over this.  This will make Mt.

Contact your local FBI field office.  You can do it anonymously as well I believe.  You want to get in touch with Financial Crimes Investigations.

https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices

That's what I'm planning to do.  I'm going to give Polo, busoni, tristan and Co. a few more days and a chance to respond obviously and send my withdrawal.  Then it's a quick 15 minutes to report the financial crime and send some documents.  

I still cannot believe how incredibly dumb these people running Polo are.  Their greed and amateurism is going to land them in jail.  What good is stealing coin when you'll be in a cell not making any coin for 15 years.

FBI will soon shut down this shady exchange called Poloniex.

The future is to a truly decentralized exchange called Blocknet:

Between them holding deposits ransom for a whole day or more with zero notification on why. Support tickets open for days and not even looked at.  Obvious price manipulation by utilizing time made from holding deposits so people cant sell but polo can.  This site is obviously doing something wrong, premeditated or through negligence.  I have pulled all my coins from there and have started trading elsewhere.  Hope they made a lot of money because they are about to lose a ton.

And this https://poloniex.com/press-releases/2017.05.16-Industry-growth-and-its-effect-on-Poloniex/ is nothing more than them trying to claim no responsibility for site issues.  Not fooling anyone who has been in crypto for a long time and has run large active user based websites, as these problems arent crypto problems. They are IT problems that are dealt with everyday by far better professionals with zero to lil impact on daily site operations.

I just made a small withdrawal. After clicking verification email, got 'Oops, invalid url' but wd actually went through fine and quick. They have this issue covered in FAQs, if anyone gets the 'Oops' screen - just ignore it, it still gets verified.

Below is the law firms contact info. As I said they were quick to respond. I originally sent a message to the info address. I have a contact there now. I don't want to give out that info without asking. I'll ask them tomorrow how they'd like the word to be spread.

BERNS WEISS LLP https://www.law111.com/ info@law111.com

This firm has a dedicated team they formed in 2013 that works specifically in crypto and blockchain technology. I didn't know that at first. I think I read they're helping coinbase with their IRS subpoena for personal records.
