The Poloniex's contribution to crypto's trading volume has decreased substantially, and a lot more traders (if compared with their current statistics) used to trade their back in 2016/17. So most of the scam accusations are quite old and not very relevant in 2019 as even the ownership of Poloniex has changed hands.

It seems like they had some sort of Ethereum (and ERC20) deposits related issue a couple of years ago (which I believe is no more present). As it's a low-volume exchange, trade with low-funds only.

Zero scam accusations.



Note: An accusation is not a major one if either it belongs to someone having less than 5 merits or it's not a part of personal funds at the exchange. Moreover, if there's any merit to any of the accusations, it'll be considered as major. So if you feel that you're seeing an accusation which is not being considered as major, just give that accusation a merit and it'll be counted as major.

The note in OP has been updated, for better clarification of the difference in a major accusation and in just-another-accusation:

Quote
Note: An accusation is not a major one if either it belongs to someone having less than 5 merits or it's not a part of personal funds at the exchange. Moreover, if there's any merit to any of the accusations, it'll be considered as major. So if you feel that you're seeing an accusation which is not being considered as major, just give that accusation a merit and it'll be counted as major.
