Am I taking an L on this one? Or can I salvage my eth?

Alright so I’m pretty new to actually putting any money into crypto, just been trying to educate myself on the basics before I did. Well for some reason my Coinbase kept saying it was restricted from buying/selling crypto. I validated my photo ID and everything not sure why, just won’t let me. Anyway I had a little eth I bought for a trial run and after doing some research, I decided to transfer my my DefFi wallet to Coinbase Pro. Well I forgot that Coinbase had been saying my account was restricted, and I’m not even sure that means I’m restricted on CB pro as well (but I assume so) anyway, the transfer says its successful, and my crypto DeFi wallet is empty but my Coinbase pro portfolio never reflected the amount, I didn’t get any notifications that a deposit had been made, an email that I received the ETH, nothing. I’ve been in touch with Coinbase support and they temporarily deactivated my account I guess. My main question is: is there any way to get my coins back? I guess I thought if you tried to transfer to an account that’s not active or something like that it just wouldn’t go through. I have the address I sent it to, and used etherscan to check the status of the transaction so it definitely went through.

What do you think?

  1. If Coinbase Pro gave you the destination account address, they have the coins now. They absolutely have the power to find the funds and return them to you, it’s just a matter of getting support to do it.
