I put about $302,000 worth of bitcoin in Coinbase and was locked out a few days later and unable to get back into my account. I employed all methods of recovering my account back but it happened that my account was compromised by a ripper who executed a virus into my system thereby gaining access to my wallet. Worried and perplexed, I found a specialist ( HACKSTARS101 @ WORKMAIL . COM) who tactfully regained access but on getting back all coins were already gone. He traced the coin via a signature print down to a foreign wallet and recovered everything back. You can hope to recover your funds with his technicality.
