The Polish cryptocurrency exchange Coinroom ceased operating, and its operator allegedly stole the users' funds. This is reported by the Finance Magnets with reference to local media.
So, in early April, customers of the exchange received letters in which the Coinroom notified them about the termination of the contract.
Clients were asked to withdraw funds within 24 hours. In the event that users did not have time to return their assets within the prescribed period, they had to contact the Coinroom for individual withdrawal.
Nevertheless, as reported by the media, many have not been able to return the assets, even turning for a withdrawal within a day.
After that, the exchange was completely unavailable - the platform stopped responding, its accounts in social networks were deleted, and the site was closed. The connection with the President of the Coinroom, Tomasz Zbigniew Veveyura, was also lost.
The users of the site are convinced that the exchange has implemented an exit-scam. According to the local edition of Money.pl, they conducted their own investigation, according to which it turned out that part of the funds had been withdrawn from the Coinroom long before the notice of the termination of activities.
According to media reports, thousands of customers turned out to be deceived. The exact amount of the losses is still unknown, but users have already appealed to the prosecutor’s office, accusing the Coinroom of fraud and theft of funds. It is reported that law enforcement agencies have already begun an investigation in connection with the events.
