Hi all, On the 13th of Oct 2018, someone managed to hack my account on Kraken and sent all my XRP (about 85,000) to a Binance wallet. **** edit **** I've previously reported here the details of the 2 transactions used by the hacker to move the coins, but I've decided to delete them from this post upon suggestion by the moderator **** edit **** I've contacted Binance support on the same day, and I got asked to provide more evidence before they would proceed locking that account, which I promptly did. However, as of today, Binance support team is yet to provide a clear answer on where the XRP are. So far they've only reassured me that they are still working on my case in the attempt to track the stolen funds. Shouldn't they know if the coins are still on their exchange in the frozen account? At the beginning they mentioned the presence of funds in that account but they never specify how much. Now they are saying that they are trying to track the funds. If they locked the account with funds in there, I'm expecting them to be in possess of the funds but when I ask them precise questions at this regard, they never provide a clear answer. Is anyone able to check where the funds might be if I provide the wallet address and destination tag of the hacker Binance account? Can anyone from the Ripple team be in touch with Binance and check if they are in posses of the funds? I've already contacted the local authorities in Italy, but maybe there is a more appropriate entity which can handle the case. Any suggestion is welcomed. Unfortunately Kraken response was pretty useless as they refused to provide support of any kind. Their level of security is quite low as I got several emails asking to approve withdrawal addresses I never triggered. These requests came from a different IP than my one, but Kraken failed to warn me. Eventually I ended up approving the not legit XRP Binance wallet after the hacker was continuously cancelling the withdrawals I tried to submit against the correct address. I hope more and more people can learn from my bad experience and avoid storing their crypto on Kraken.
