Just want to relay my recent experiences with Poloniex

I lost access to my registered email address at Poloniex a few months ago. I had email link requirement ticked, for any withdrawals. I therefore have access to the account, but cant withdrawal anything.

On 2nd Feb i sent a message through Poloniex to advise what i need to do to resolve. On the same day, i was told it would be 'escalated'.
For 4 days i hear nothing, so on the 6th Feb, i sent another message through Poloniex, and i sent a message to Busoni via this forum. The next day (7th Feb), i receive an apology for delay from Poloniex, and asking for more details of my problem, which i replied to that day.
Two days later, on 9th Feb, i am asked to supply screenshots of my account and IP address. I replied that day with requested details.
Its now 11th Feb and ive had to send another message through Poloniex, as its all gone silent again, not only from Poloniex, but Busoni has also chosen to not reply to my three messages via this forum, despite him logging in.

Ive always trusted and respected Poloniex/Busoni, but for me, its big red flag time. Nearly 10 days to sort out this relatively simple issue is questionable at best, or something very wrong, at worst.

@Busoni  I would like access to my funds today, or is there other issues to consider here?

Ive had the address for over 12 years, and a few months ago i changed the password. For some reason, i didnt write it down in my book that contains all my passwords (about 30) for every single account/site access, i control.
The email account in question, forced me to answer questions that i believe, could identify me, so i made the answers up......over 12 years ago!

You are right, i should try to speak to them. It looks like i need to, as Poloniex and Busoni have still not resolved this.

So to re-cap. Its now 10 days since i sent the first support ticket to Poloniex, and 3 days since any contact from Poloniex.
Also, Busoni knows about this thread, and despite him logging in this morning, he STILL wont acknowledge any of this.

WTF is going on  Huh

stereotype,

I know this can be annoying, but you should keep in mind that they probably need some time to make sure you are who you are.
Even when you are a bit angry right now, be happy that they do it this way. I have no idea how many funds you have there, but in my case I would not want some attacker to be able to gain control over my account by just sending an email pretending the loss of the old, registred account.

I agree, the communication should have been better in your case, but overall I appreciate that giving out full control to someone contacting the support from a different email account is so hard.

Absolutely agree Evil, and something i considered by leaving it for the first 4 days from my initial contact.
Remember, i have access to the account which i proved by a screenshotting the logged in account, AND by overlaying the message i sent Busoni through here, so they can see this account in the screenshot also. Customer service mentioned they have several ways to establish correct control of the account, but they have not asked me anything more since asking for screenshot 3 days ago.

Chatbox: maybe i should spam that. Cheers

I tried to cancel the email notification....you guessed it....it needs me to confirm via the registered address.  Undecided All they need to do is cancel this, and im good to go.

Im angry Busoni is choosing to ignore me, and also baffled why he would let me keep posting negative posts about his baby. Very odd, extremely arrogant, or completely indifferent? I dont know.  Huh

stereotype: I will contact the guy who resolved my issue yesterday within less than a minute. Maybe I can push things forward a bit. I am trading very large amounts there and maybe (what I dont believe but maybe) my messages will have a higher priority.

Cool banana, Evil. Nice one.  Smiley

I dealt with Johnny and Angela within the past 10 days.

See if they will accept a signed message from a bitcoin address in your wallet that you have deposited/withdrawed to on Poloniex in the past.  
They can ask you for a phrase or word and then you reply back with signed message containing that exact phrase to prove you own the bitcoin address.  From that it can be considered highly like your account and that bitcoin address are the same user. Its at the very least alot better and more trustworthy then a screenshot which can be photoshopped, and unlikely that someone who has hacked the poloniex account would also have access to the users bitcoin wallet.dat containing those addresses (altho not impossible eg stolen laptop/harddrive etc).

All exchanges should have their users provide/save a bitcoin address in their settings for their identity and or emergency withdrawals before they are allowed to trade imho, its very good of increasing security and handling situations like this where user loses access to their accounts/email etc.

Yep, good point, and happy to do this. Its just that they are not communicating anything, at all.

Just odd behaviour for an exchange that is generally considered safe and sound, relatively speaking.

Jesus. I would escalate it legally if they continue to hold the funds. For an exchange with such a volume, they really should have better Customer support standards. Keep us updated.

So, this morning an email from Angela was in my inbox, saying i could go ahead and withdraw. But she will be doing this manually, after i have actioned the withdraw through my account. So i am now waiting for her to complete the transactions. Another 10 days wait, perhaps?  Undecided

@Busoni  Why the 11 day wait, and why the silence?

That is strange i have found Poloniex to be super fast (the fastest) on helping resolve issues i have had in the past, glad it is getting sorted now as i would have told you earlier had i seen this you're funds are safe they are an honest exchange and trust worthy.

Have to ask did you send multiple tickets yeh?

Grin you are getting your coin why are you continuing to complain ? (<-- Most likely the reason of the silence)

Ive been with Polo since day one.
Strange indeed. Its Busoni's indifference that baffles me. No, only one ticket.

Ive always been confident of getting my coin. We usually complain, because of the way we are treated, and/or our expectations are not met. Call me old fashioned.

Finally, today, i get my coins back. That took 12 days, 5 messages to Busoni here (all un-replied), and 5 emails to Poloniex.  Cry  What a horrible burden, i must have been.  Undecided

It was fun while it lasted Poloniex, but bye bye.
