***** WARNING ****** DO NOT SEND ANY (LARGE) SUMS TO COINBASE. $40,000 wire transfer missing since 12/18 with ZERO response

The question is- why would you ever trust this company? How do you not reach out to a customer who trusted you with this amount of money? Is this who you want to be dealing with if/ when the shit really hits the fan in the cryptocurrency space ? It is a total sham(e), I would have absolutely been a customer, and likely an active one long term. For all those who have had positive experiences with Coinbase- that's great, but don't assume it will not happen to you at some point, especially when liquidity goes to hell after a crash. If they can't help a newer customer willing to put in a large amount of funds, why will they help those who put in less. No, I did not deposit this amount without depositing a smaller amount first, which went through, so assumed the systems were fine, and hey worst case the wire is rejected …. WRONG. Don't assume it won't happen to you!! Yes I filed a CFPB and state Financial Institutions complaint. Yes I called a zillion times. Yes I did everything they instructed on their "customer support" site. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this could happen in this country. This company has reared its ugly face as a total fraud and/or perhaps a total Ponzi scheme. How in the world do you return other wires from 5 days ago before addressing ones from more than a month ago, never mind the amount! Let this be a warning to you all, I would not wish this on ANYONE.

ADDENDUM: I attempted to transfer to my GDAX account, but the wire goes through the associated Coinbase account, and shows up as a Coinbase deposit (had transferred funds before), hence the references to Coinbase.
