I received an email telling me to verify my account. I was surprised as I hadn’t logged in to my account for more than 6 months.

Encouraged by your message that “it wouldn’t take me more than two minutes to verify it”, I decided to do so. I took a photo of my passport, uploaded it, filled in the short questionnaire, and when I got to the verification of my home address, he asked me for a bank statement or an electricity or gas bill, or the census certificate. I send them the bank statement and they tell me that it’s no good, that they need my address in it. I send them a mobile phone bill, no good, the census registration certificate, no good either… their response is that it has to be at most 3 months old. The problem is that I live in a rented house, and the electricity and gas are paid by my landlord, and the bank statements do not show my personal address, I have sent them a document with my bank details and address, and they tell me that it is no good, that the last movements made must be shown. When I send them my census certificate, they say that it is no good also because it is dated June 2022. The problem is that, in the country where I live, there is no embassy, and it takes 1 to 3 months to get this document. So I find myself with blocked money (not too much, fortunately) that I can neither move nor withdraw. I have spent more than an hour fighting over the chat with two agents and there has been no way they can solve anything, they say that these are requirements of the European Union.

Any solution? Or do I lose my money?

I will definitely delete my Binance account if I find a solution, what a disappointment.

    Binance has become a scam. I moved out all my assets today and deleted the account. Good luck with your stuff!
