TopBTC Holds APR Coin Hostage, untrustworthy exchange?

APR, a fairly new POS coin that has been aggressive about getting on new exchanges, is being held hostage by a TopBTC. The standard listing fee for TopBTC is 20BTC + 20 BTC Collateral but after some negotiation, TopBTC and APR coin team agreed to a price of 8BTC + 8BTC Collateral for the listing fee. After only two days, Top BTC began having mysterious “issues” with APR Coin in terms of deposits and withdraws as both were halted. They first blamed it on some wallet stake reward issue and demanded a payment of 12,000 APR Coins but after that was proven to be totally false they changed their story to one of their engineers messing up and causing the error yet still demanded 12,000 APR coins as payment. This is a clear case of extortion by TopBTC as they not only falsified a story but also changed and and still demanded a payment even though it was their own fault for the error.
Just today, Top BTC used bots to fulfill a 15,000 APR sell order on their exchange(while deposits and withdraws are still frozen) to tank APR coin’s price. The APR team has demanded that the exchange stop trading APR and a full refund of the listed fee of 8BTC due to TopBTC’s behavior. This is unacceptable behavior by a large exchange and I would recommend people to stay far way from them.
