  3. I made a wire transfer to Coinbase on December 27, and they said it was declined due to a name mismatch, and that they will be returning this wire back to my bank within 7 business days. After 7 business days, I sent them an email, and they stated that they were dealing with higher than average requests time, and that they needed more information about the wire (reference #, IMAD #, full name, etc.). I quickly reply to that email providing all the information necessary. This was on January the 9th.

    On January 15th, they replied stating that they recently experienced delays with wires due to high volume and the additional manual processing that they require, and that all delayed wires from their backlog have been processed; and that I should receive my funds within the next 2 business days.

    I sent them another email on January 17th about the status of my wire, and I have yet to receive a response.

    Update: I made a post about this on r/CryptoCurrency/ on January 22nd, and it received a lot of support, but it was removed by the moderators for an unknown reason. It would not surprise me if someone from Coinbase removed the post to try and save their dwindling reputation.

    I’m tired of waiting. It is now February 19th. I submitted a CFPB complaint already on January 30th, and on the day of the 14 day deadline, I received an automated response from Coinbase saying that they are looking into this, and that they are receiving higher than average requests times. I can’t believe it. The same excuse used not once, twice, but three times. Unbelievable. Words cannot describe how frustrated I am right now. I will be reporting this to the local authorities if I do not receive a proper response soon.

    u/Coinbase-Olga, I hope you look into this.

    Case ID: #3370140

    Please upvote for support. If you could upvote my post in r/Coinbase/ as well, that would be great.

    Thank you all.

  4. Cryptopia is having a ton of problems processing withdrawals. Myself and many others have been trying to withdrawal ZCL in preparation for the fork in 9 days and way too many of the withdrawals have been processing or pending for a long long time.

    Cryptopia is doing an awful job communicating. I’m demanding an update on these issues. What’s the problem?

    Edit: froufrou shared an update-

    I’m sure that will make everyone feel better.
