Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, MapleChangeEx, appears to have prosecuted an exit scam, according to users. After posting worrisome messages on Twitter in response to complaints from users about the website being unavailable, the company simply explained they were shutting everything down and not returning users’ money.

“Due to a bug,” MapleChangeEx Tweeted, “some people have managed to withdraw all the funds from our exchange. We are in the process of a thorough investigation for this. We are extremely sorry it has come to end like this. Until the investigation is over, we cannot refund anything.”
All that remains officially online to describe the Canadian exchange is how “MapleChange is a Canadian cryptocurrency asset exchange revolving around the concept of community, fast customer experience, reliability and swiftness of transactions.”
“Gotta call out @MapleChangeEx on this absolute disgrace of a platform. How do you have a bug that allows users to withdraw all your funds,” Tweeted @TheCryptoCactus, “… this is one of the worst things I’ve seen in 2018 so far. Stay safe guys.. hopefully they can refund everyone in the future.”
Another Twitter user answered, “How much does Twitter charge users per hour? According to Maplechange they had to destroy all their social media accounts because of costs. According to Google Cache they only had 8051 users and 1.3181 BTC daily volume.”
