    Sounds nice, but reality is another thing.
    Moneypolo cant even give information about a transactions which lie 2 days in the past.
    It seems that they support those criminals actively hiding information.

        Aha. Now of a sudden.

        And why do i get always the following response in my email conversation:
        “We can monitor only new transactions which are in process ”
        “The transaction is completed from our side and is no longer in our system.”
        “Unfortunately, our transaction is completed and is no longer in our system.”

        This doesn’t sound like it is stored for 10 years.
        So don’t tell such lies.

          I think they mean the money are not there so they can’t do anything about it, not that they don’t have informations.
