I am really frustrated with the charging of fees to individuals in order to review what is happening on the exchange.

This is simply another way for the exchange to get their hands in our pockets.

They are reimbursed better than anyone I know for their services.

Maybe if we all change our accounts to purchase and sell in other countries, or on other exchanges, it will send a message.

You can be assured that someone will come along to correct this issue, and it will not be one day too soon.
