Local coin atm - Scam, Fraud, Dont use!

I put $945 into the machine at Yorkdale Mart 3261 Dufferin St North York, M6A 2T2, Canada. The money went into the machine but the transaction never sent a orange prompt came up to call a number or email [email protected]

I called the number on the machine and waited on hold for 5 minutes and no one answered. The owner of the store said the space is leased and to contact local coin directly.

I've been speaking with support for 4 days. They keep giving me the same stupid run around. They've held my bitcoin hostage and haven't released it to me. $1000 isn't an insignificant amount. They ignore my emails and just tell me to keep waiting. Essentially they've stolen $1000 from me because their machine had an error and they've failed to take responsibility for it so far.

I suggest you don't use this companies atms ever. It was a malfunction on their end and their support is horrible. They offer you vague answers and just tell you to wait.

They are clearly frauds and scammers. Stay away and use other bitcoin atms or localbitcoins.com it's fast and hassle free.

    This companies a huge scam. Never use localcoin.ca or a localcoin atm. They are scammers and fraudsters.

    Localbitcoins.com is way easier and better.

    Same thing happened to me!
