    I got an email today, suprisingly in my inbox rather than in spambox about me receiving $1K+ funds in my liberty reserve account. The whole thing looks genuine but be careful.

    Here is the email I got :


    Sender : "[email protected]" <[email protected]>

    Dear Liberty Reserve member,


    You have been sent a transfer of 1392 USD from Liberty Reserve account U3983977. However, in accordance to our newly modified Security Policy, valid from today, 26th May 2009, you are required to confirm your identity before you can receive transfer spends of a sum over 1000 USD. This is done to further strenghten the safety of our members and minimize the possibility of a fraudulent transaction.

    Please click on the link below to be taken to the page where you will confirm your ownership of your Liberty Reserve account and receive the transfer spend. Fill out all the fields and press the "Confirm" button. Your submitted data will be sent to our Support team and processed MANUALLY. A few hours later you will be sent an email confirmation and the balance of your Liberty Reserve account will be reflected with the receipt of the 1392 USD.

    The above process is a one-time verification of your ownership of your Liberty Reserve account and you will not be required to authenticate yourself once you have successfully completed the process.

    Note: Bear in mind that, due to security reasons imposed by our new Policy, the spend will not be credited to your account until you confirm your identity.



    CONFIRM YOUR ACCOUNT WITH LIBERTY RESERVE HERE:

    For information and support please e-mail us at [email protected]

    Thank you.

    There was en error while processing your request.
    Please notify the support team about this error and try to a https://www.libertyreserve.com/en/errors/500.html?aspxerrorpath=/en/customer/confirm/verify.aspx# and execute request with other params.
