What happened::
on July 30 2020 I made a transaction with Coinswitch after reading several good trustpilot reviews. the transaction was 459770.0964 AMB for 0.1248 BTC over 1400 usd. I noticed after a while that the app still said awaiting deposit. I reached out to customer service about the issue and provided the agent with all of the information that he requested and even more order number, addresses, pictures, etc. proving that the transaction had been completed on my end. After over an hour of waiting and terrible customer service. the only thing I was told was to contact my wallet provider. This is unacceptable! especially when proof of funding is provided. After a few more hours I contacted another agent and actually told them the solution to the technical issue I was having. I was rudely told to start a ticket. I started the ticket and provided the proper information (I'm sure the information was correct because I had the exact same deposit issue with Binance and it was solved in one day) And now I have a pending status. I reached out to coinswitch once again for an update and I've gotten no response. Lots of work is needed for even a one star review. I literally did all of the work for them as far as resolving the issue and I still don't have my money. Don't do business with these guys!

Update: It has been almost 30 days and i still have not gotten a refund and it appears that i have been blocked from  telegram and email as well. Do not do business with these people.

Renju Mani Mani Elias, said 11 days ago
Dear *****,

Our deepest apologies on the delay caused on the matter. The recovery of your AMB main net coins are still being worked on by the technical team and unfortunately has not been completed yet. The ticket had closed out automatically and we extend our apologies again on the matter. I will have the matter escalated right away to the concerned team so that I can get an update on the status of this and let me update you as I hear back.

Sincerely,
Renju

Where is my money?
Renju Mani Mani Elias, said 9 days ago
Dear *****,

Our apologies on the delayed response on the matter. The ticket has been placed on PENDING status from our end as the issue is still being worked on by our tech team and unfortunately there has been no updated on the matter from them. Let me try to have the matter expedited again to get an update on the case and update you when I hear back on the same. We apologise for the delay and the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience on the matter.

Sincerely,
Renju
Renju Mani Mani Elias, said 9 days ago
Dear *****,

Our apologies on the delayed response on the matter. Your ticket was merged with the existing ticket you had primarily put in on the issue - 49987 which is being worked on by the tech team internally. Kindly be advised that the coins are safe and once we get an update on the recovery we will reach out to you for an refund address and return the coins back to you.  
 
Sincerely,
Renju
*****, said 8 days ago
Thank you for your response.

*****, said 7 days ago
So there's no way for the AMB to just be sent back to the original Kucoin wallet?
*****, said 6 days ago
Has there been any update to my ticket status ? It's been almost a month and no funds
Renju Mani Mani Elias, said 6 days ago
Dear *****,

Our apologies on the delayed response on the matter.

Unfortunately there has been no updates on this from our tech team, I have already ready discussed the matter with our tech team and they have informed that they are working on it and hope to complete a recovery soon. I will be keeping in touch with them regularly for a follow up on this and make sure there are no unnecessary delays with this one from our end.

Stay safe !  

Sincerely,
Renju
*****, said 5 days ago
Wow! This is unreal. It literally took me five minutes to recover AMB sent to me the exact same way.

*****, said 4 days ago
Has there been an update to the status of my ticket?

CoinSwitch Support, said 4 days ago
Dear *****,

Our tech team is looking into the issue. It is taking longer since we don't support AMB mainnet. We will share an update in the next 48 hours with you.

Sincerely,
Team CoinSwitch
*****, said 3 days ago
I am now aware that you do not support mainnet AMB. However at the time of the transaction there was no mention of what type of token was accepted. If  they can't be converted to BTC then that's ok. Just let me know what type of address you need to send the AMB to and I'll gladly accommodate.

I last spoke with this guy from support just more of the same BS

, [23.08.20 06:02]
I still have not received my refund

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:04]
Let me look it up

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 06:04]
Ok

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 06:29]
Well did you look it up?

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:31]
Hey man i did look
Up

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:31]
Its a delay on our end

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:32]
Our tech lead needs to pull it out and he hasn’t done it yet

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:32]
I will get it done

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 06:32]
Any idea of when he will do it?

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 06:33]
I just spoke to him

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 06:33]
Ok well hopefully soon

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:33]
So I see no progress has been made today either. I guess we'll be doing this circle talk forever 😂

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:33]
Hey do not mind but it is a mistake on your end so kindly bear with us

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:34]
Its not like we want to delay it or anythjnh but we run a pretty big exchange which requires a lot of other attention as well

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:38]
I guess it would suck to be a month behind at work.

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:39]
Laurence i really do understand your concern.. its been a month your money is with us

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:39]
But hey I lost my job due to this virus so I have nothing but time to persue my money 😂

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:40]
And kindly understand its not like we are being lazy.. its just that.. something like taking the private key requires our CTO to do it and that is why the delay

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:40]
I would be equally frustrated if i was in your place

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:41]
No I don't think you're lazy at all

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:41]
I will push harder to get it done faster

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:41]
Btw can you tell me what was the dollar value of your coins

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:42]
Brb let me check explorer

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:42]
Give me a rough approx

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:42]
Dont need exact

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:43]
[ Photo ]

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:43]
$1423

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:43]
Cool

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:44]
If it was less I wouldn't care

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:45]
But unfortunately that has to last me until I get a job. Or die of this stupid virus. Which is highly likely here in the US 😂

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 11:46]
To be honest, we generally look at less or more because what might be a less amount to us might be more for the customer

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:48]
That's understandable

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 11:49]
I went through the same thing before. I should have just left the AMB in Kucoin

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 12:41]
Has anyone ever gotten a refund from failed mainnet transaction?

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 13:04]
Yes a lot of people make that mistake

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 13:04]
They do get a refund almost within 2-3 days

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 13:05]
The delay with you has mostly been because of the CTOs unavailability

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 13:06]
Oh must be bad luck I guess

Sharan Nair, [23.08.20 13:06]
I will try to get it done faster

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 13:07]
Ok maybe he will return to do it

laurence Richardson, [23.08.20 22:46]
I received an email requesting my mainnet address for return. I'm not sure when they will get it so I'll give it to you too.

0xba45ee009bf7a847538b5335054f540d14b4d80e

laurence Richardson, [24.08.20 09:23]
Almost got me! I thought I was actually about to be getting my refund. Oh well back to square one.

This is the second scam accusation I've seen against coinswitch in the past week or so, and my guess is that there's something fishy going on there.  Does coinswitch have an account on the forum?  I didn't find a link in the last thread I looked at.  Tagging them probably wouldn't help anyone get their funds back, but at least it would be a warning.

I do still have a Coinomi wallet (though I don't use it anymore) and I have noticed that they're affiliated in some way with coinswitch, as there's an option for instant trades within the wallet, with Changelly and Totle Swap (whatever the hell that is) as well.  Coinomi ought to think twice about offering swaps through coinswitch, because it does look like these are legitimate scams and they're not for small amounts either.

Sorry for your experience with these jokers, OP.  I had a problem with Changelly a while back and I know how frustrating it is trying to deal with companies that you really don't know that much about.

I remember using them last early last year. They started out well but after gaining trust from people it looks like they decided to pull of an exit scam.
They have been so many complaints about them in the forum and on trust pilot lately, and they are really a big disappointment. So sorry OP.

I did one good transaction with them a year or so ago. But i would not do business with them now. Honestly the whole country of India is blacklisted to me at this point.

Personally i think you should take more time before select another platform for your need. Feeling really bad after hearing about your loss and i know our condolences will not gonna give you much relief in current situation. I think you forgot to add their website link on your main topic although you described everything nicely.

I have seen another accusation recently which is about "Coinswitch". Just checked their official account and its inactive from last April, 2019. Thanks for notifying us about their recent activity and don't forget to give update here if they make further responses from their end.
