Apology?  I had to post here for them to do something about it, a few hours after I post here I magically get an email back.  Pretty sure it's not them that's owed an apology.

And BTW while I was waiting for a reponse, I had a friend send emails and they responded to him without a few hours each time.

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

How long have you waited in total, from the first email you sent to the problem finally getting solved?
From your previous posts, it seems it is over a week. IMO, the support service would be way to slow in that case.

YOU allow your own account being hacked. Then you send an email to the support so that they can help you. And only because they dont answer as fast, as you want them to answer, you believe you have the right to call them thieves? Really?

Im not sure if you handle problems always that way but if localbitcoins would be a realworld store and you speak that way to the staff, then for sure i would give you a house ban.

I had my account hacked on localbitcoins and I can see that the bitcoins that were left are still in the localbitcoin wallet and all they do is ignore my emails to give me back my account.  They are trying to steal my bitcoins without any shame doing so.
First, Gladoux, can you explain how that part I bolded was accomplished?  LBC moves deposited coins within several minutes of the deposit, so there's no way to know if they still control them, or whose account they are in if they do, by examining the blockchain, unless there is a comprehensive list of all addresses that LBC owns. Is there?

Anyway, I suspect that LBC ignores emails from addresses that are not assigned to their customers.  If I were LBC, I'm pretty sure that rule would be created pretty early.  Or maybe they didn't ignore the email, but wanted to wait for more evidence that the sender was the original owner of the account.  If your account has been compromised, it is reasonable to assume that other accounts of yours (like email) may also have been compromised.  Glandoux and LBC can both improve their operations:
  • Glandoux could put a little more effort into giving LBC the benefit of doubt.  In the first post about the problem, he called them thieves.
  • (Maybe) Gladoux could improve his method of protecting his LBC account.
  • LBC can keep a history of old email addresses whenever a customer changes their email address (I'm guessing they don't).
  • LBC can establish policy on handling claims of hacked accounts and let everyone know about it.
  • LBC should have a hidden set of hoops that a customer must go through in order to prove they are the actual owner once someone makes the claim that their account has been hacked.
A simple protocol would be to sign something with a private address to which some bitcoins have previously been sent, or which has been established earlier (when the account was not compromised) as the account holder's signing address.

I am interested in helping LBC establish that "hidden set" if they are interested.  Some of my ideas can be found in the archives of my mailing list (there's a link at the top of my LBC profile of the same username). LBC, please feel free to contact me if you think my ideas might be worth exploring.  I think your business has the potential to replace the three credit reporting agencies in the US, if not other government-privileged holders of monopolistic services.

Is a good site, but the fee is a bit high.. the resellers price too.
(in my country).

Maybe in us, it's cheap.

The fee is 1%, paid by the advertiser.  That is fair, keeps them in business and not too high as far as most people are concerned.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

At a 30 day volume (USD market only) of 15,691,563.59 USD you would hope they stay in business using a fee structure like that. :-)

What would be the advantage of using localbitcoins as opposed to coinbase?

No verification process. Some buyers may require it, but there are always some that don't. You have a bit more privacy on LBC then on CoinBase (and you can do face-to-face trades).

I think they charge the buyer 1% too.  I downloaded my history to check and I see I did a local buy on 6/20 and got 1% less than I bought.

Just the advertiser gets the fee, unless they changed it very recently and didn't update this: https://localbitcoins.com/fees

Sounds good. More privacy and faster transactions with LBC...

Oh that makes a lot more sense.  I tested it by requesting a trade with myself, and I guess since I'm the advertiser, I got dinged on both sides. DOH!

So the seller pays the whole fee? The buyer pays only the offered price?
