Burning USDC tokens? wtf! [RESOLVED]

Burning USDC tokens? wtf! [RESOLVED]

I transferred USDC tokens from my Matic wallet into Metamask. Followed all the rules and instructions. Got the permission ok from MetaMask. The funds have not showed up, and then I see this:


Can anyone tell me why the f*%&# that is showing up? Or did Matic actually put a torch to 20k?

Now the transaction tells me it is taking too long and I should try again. The hash is no longer visible on Etherscan. Is this just more BS congestion on the Etherium network or is this a fatal flaw in the Matic Bridge?
