    What did happen to Liberty reserve ?

    Anyone had a Liberty reserve account and lost money after their site, bank accounts and even the owner was Seized by FBI ? I had an account but was not using it.

    It's a popular payment processor in countries which Paypal not available. Also unfortunately used for lots of not so good activities like by hackers and code breakers etc.

    FBI is very interested in the money circulating the www. If they find any site dealing huge amounts of money but not profiting them, they hit it hard and shut it down. I've seen some really popular sites being shut down by the FBI and instead of their main page, the FBI notice appears. I wonder how much control does this agency wants and how much will it be able to seize?

    I have no idea. I think they and US Inland Revenue trying to pull customer data from Swiss banks. Also Liberty reserve is not a US company or located in USA. So I don't know how they did it. I think Liberty reserve owner's accused money laundering.

    yeah, same problem in Zyprus, there was before the the garden of eden for Tax. But through the crises they catch it and a high % of the people are having money which is not legal after tax. So i think the US. want to open each secret which is hidden to find where is money hidden, like in Switzerland, which is not far from me. The new rule that the bank can take you money in case you have over 100k euro and the bank is empty, the bank is allowed to use your money to recover to health lol, what a world we are....

    Everyone is hungry for money. The internet is generating billions of dollars each year and there was no check and balance by the governments in the past. Now they are active and FBI has revamped its website and made it SEO friendly too. I wonder if they need SEO for it and who would be doing it?

    But i must say, the one who loos his money on liberty it is a part already his own fault too, because it was noticed that liberty will maybe close and is going insolvent. The one who heard it and still keep his money there, he should not shout that he lost it. Maybe problem is too that people trsut such services to much and keep huge amount on it.

    People are always hoping for the best. Once they have invested money, they keep on believing that things will get well soon only until the hammer falls on them. I think it is human nature or else a majority of websites would get even a single subscriber.

    Why FBI shut down Liberty Reserve? Are there more sites like Liberty Reserve that have been shut down by FBI? I do not have Liberty Reserve account so I am safe but I have paypal and payza. If FBI can shut down Liberty Reserve then it can take serious action against other sites also so is it possible for such an action to be taken against paypal and payza also.
