The problem with placing your money with an anonymous entity on the internet is that there is absolutely nothing you can do when they run away with them.  Perhaps that is not what is happening now, but it could be.   Angry

It's been over 48 hours and I'm still getting the "Hot wallet exhausted. Please wait while we move coins in from our offline wallet" message.  My e-mail and PM have so far gone unanswered, it's disconcerting to have funds locked up and unavailable.  How long does it usually take to replenish the hot wallet?

Thanks in advance

Same here, I tried reaching them via email, but still haven't received a response. I too was getting the "Hot wallet exhausted. Please wait while we move coins in from our offline wallet" message, but now I've just found that my wallet has been deleted. I get a "404 Not Found" error when I try to access my wallet now. I hope this gets figured out soon.

Hopefully that means they are replenishing the hot wallet, but who knows with the silent treatment we're getting.  Huh

The more time passes the easier it seems to juice coins out of fools

I'm having the same issue.  I have sent them a PM on this site as well as an email to their address at torwallet@tormail.org and have not received any responses.  The service was fine the last time I used it after I had checked to see if there was anything "scammy" about it, so I just assumed it would be okay just to use it as a quick intermediary.  Boy, was I wrong.  Not sure what the previous poster meant by "fools."  Let's face it, the nature of Bitcoin is that at any time during an exchange or transaction, anyone can walk away with your money and there's not much you can do.  The government sure isn't going to help you, because they want Bitcoin gone anyway.  Are all Bitcoin users fools then?  It's not like I put my life savings into Torwallet, it was a relatively small amount, thankfully, but enough to be annoying that it is stuck there.

Is there anyway we can import that address into our Blockchain wallet and release the coins from there? Or do they own the secret phrase for that address?

You'd think they could put up a note on their site that says they are having issues and that you will or may not be able to get your coins out right away after moving them in.  The silence is what is the most disconcerting.

Unfortunately it does.  This website seemed like a great idea, but far too much temptation for the owners.  Plus, I wonder how much they made from mixing fees anyway?  Couldn't have been that much.

I looked up the WHOIS data for torwallet.net - this is who the domain was registered by:

Tel. +1.8003683375

Of course. Let's see if we can dig up anymore info on these guys.

it really wasn't a good idea,

but far too much temptation for the owners.
and that's precisely why,

Plus, I wonder how much they made from mixing fees anyway?  Couldn't have been that much.
if you want to mix coins, use a big shared wallet that'll do it anonymously and for free, not a shared wallet hiding behind a Tor veil.

Using that will get you nowhere... But I remeber reading someone on the forum saying he met the Torwallet guy(s) at vegas, on defcon. You guys might want to search that.

This is the only thing I found mentioning that. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=91252.msg1011830#msg1011830

Thanks though, I'll keep digging around.

I've compiled all claims that they are experiencing "problems with their database" here.

The forum should declare it as scam until they response and pay. People should never deposit large amount of money to a random anonymous service.

Couldn't find it either. But I'm sure I read it. Probably the post was removed for "security" reasons. lol

Going by one of those threads, it looks like someone may have found the physical location of their server.  -_-

Assuming it was not a scam:  anyone consider that they got picked up by the FBI?  Wouldn't they be really interested on the clientele of a TOR based mixing service?

Have you tried accessing your wallet lately?  Mine is still there and still has my bitcoin in there.  That's what's strange, if they were going to run away with it wouldn't it be gone or deleted?  Maybe they're in the hospital.  Any number of things could be wrong.  I'm just surprised more people haven't posted anything.  Maybe it's just us few fools who have used it recently.

Luckily I had only a very small amount in my wallet there, but like I said earlier, when I attempted to send my coins to another address I was met with the "Hot wallet exhausted. Please wait while we move coins in from our offline wallet" message. After waiting some time, I decided to email them about the issue. They never responded, but shortly after I sent them them the message, I found my wallet to be inaccessible. I'm almost certain they deleted it.
