I have also lost AAVE in a transfer, I have traced every part of the transaction, it was sent from my Gemini trading account and requested to convert into Ethereum in my Etoro Wallet.
To do this Gemini request an address to send it to, so I logged into my Etoro wallet and clicked on Ethereum to request a deposit, Etoro then produced a QR code and my wallet address which i simply clicked to copy, back to Gemini, pasted the Etoro code and confirmed.
All the Hash and Transactions back this up…however in never reached my wallet and has taken 8 days of intense investigation to find out that is back in the main AAVE account.
This appears to be an ongoing situation, but I have all the proof that the coins are not being stolen by Hackers they are simply not being delivered through the blockchain…the transactions appear to be untraceable, but they are!
This appears to be a premeditated fraud by AAVE themselves. However, with the sender, in this case Gemini being listed on the transaction and the destination wallet address being mine registered with Etoro, in addition the block chain records confirming both and the conversion to Ethereum, we should assume that the compliance bodies will investigate the sender and the receiving bodies.
This is not a hacker it is AAVE, stop posting your problems on their site and ring the national press
