I am considering taking a company to small claims court over the "theft" of an amount of money that I will not disclose here. I put money into my account in the form of cryptocurrency (the company is a cryptocurrency exchange), and they locked my account with the money in it. I was locked out because I am a minor and needed a parental form signed, not for any other/malicious reasons. I then completed the parental forms and submitted them, with no response and no return of my account. This was over a month ago. I would like to file against them for theft, but I first want to be sure that this is legally correct and I'm not just filing a useless claim. If the company has had my money for a little over a month, could that be considered theft or some other form of actionable offense?
Thanks in advance!
