    They have bot around for a long time so it’s not a scam. I have personally used them but just will attempt not to ter the future. Too expensive and slow to resolve issues.

    I can also tell you that anyone who has complained about having funds stolen or coins stolen for that matter have invariably lost because someone has compromised their own account by logging te with their credentials. Nothing to do with Cryptopia or our security. Wij offerande many forms of security to prevent people getting into your account and if anything the only complaint wij get is from legitimate account holders who have misplaced their credentials.
