So after several attempts of trying to retrieve my crypto out of the impossible tasks they gave me at Cryptopia, I recently received an email (very randomly) from Cryptopia and now they want me to give them my ID to verify my account. Given the kind of shady past that cryptopia has had, I am not sure if I should do it. I believe an employee at Cryptopia had pleaded guilty that he stole customer funds etc. Now that they have legal proceedings against them, it might be ok for me to give them my ID. I'm confused. Can anyone help me decide if I should do it?
I don't have a lot of crypto locked in their platform. I would think a maximum of maybe $150-200 which I would be ok to lose rather than risking giving them my identity.
Looking at your account I can see that you filled in your details in the User Profile section of the site, so we can use your ID to verify you.
Please reply to this email with a picture of a valid photo ID, as well as a picture of yourself holding the same photo ID with a handwritten note of today’s date. I will then go ahead and verify that with what we have on file here and be able to manually approve your registration.
