OMFG i am about to cry somone help..


I transferred some coins thismorning to mtgox, and had a couple sent to my mtgox account.

I logged in about 2 hours ago to check, everything was fine, left my computer and returned, my session on mtgox timmed out.

So i went to log backin and it says WRONG PASSWORD!!!

I hit the "password lost" input email, and i never got one.

I got no emails or anything. What should i do?

I contacted mtgox and waiting.

I feel sick to my stomach.

My password is very secure (long and random upper +lower+numbers)
computer is virus free behind 2 firewalls.

Huh?

i dont get how. I never gave any mtgox info out, maybe a BTC address, or account #.

Never email info, and the password is a pain to type. I have a shitty feeling.

Check your spam folder as well, perhaps the change password message got routed there.

I contacted mtgox and waiting.

Assuming this was a support ticket you opened, then you can check an existing request here:
 - https://support.mtgox.com/requests

If they haven't yet responded, there's not much you can do.  If there's no response after a reasonable amount of time (e.g., maybe one business day and the ticket has not yet been addressed) then perhaps you can escalate with some prodding on the #mtgox IRC channel on Freenode.

You did nothing wrong, but whoever sent you these coins might have. Which is why we are all interested in hearing how you obtained those coins Smiley

Sorry, that's never going to be good enough. Those well known people and exchanges don't have all the information MtGox has...or does MtGox have a "stolen coin API" ? And even that's a very dangerous move for a company who has a large BTC investment.

If they try to become a central authority that determines which coins are "legal", Bitcoin is doomed. I hope they are smarter than that.

I don't really want to get into details but he used a exchange service i used.

I already had funds on the service. Turns out he had a account there. Thats the only way i would agree to the transaction, because i had some kind of recourse in the event of a scam


I have the account email i sent them to.

I am turning that over to mtgox now.

This is not the first time I've seen someone panic about this, either. Several people had the same thing happen after withdrawing coins from Tradehill's pool and putting them into MtGox.

What great customer service - put your clients into a frenzied panic thinking their account has been hacked by locking their account with no notification of any kind.

I was thinking the same thing. BY THE WAY, How would MTGox know if the coins were stolen?

Do bit-coins carry a unique marker?


I wanted to thank everyone for the reply's, at-least freaking out on bitcointalk killed some time.

Sorry for the misleading topic as the account was not hacked. Just investigated.

Would you be willing to post the TXID or either address (sending or receiving)?

Of course. All bitcoins can be traced through the decentralized ledger. That is a fundamental design of Bitcoin.
