    I would also like to know of any way to fund LR with a credit card. I've been looking around and the closest i've seen is using paypal but I want to use CC for faster transaction.

    I don't think Money exchangers going to take that risk. They don't allow Payments from Credit Cards and Paypal. They accept western Union for these kind of transactions.

    @OP: I don't mean to say you are scammer but this is how there system works.

    If you are from the US you can use your cc to send money via western union to LR exchange companies ( you can find these in your LR account) who will then fund your LR account :)

    apart from that there is really none other I know of ..
    I read of this site some where you can exchange from paypal to LR but have never tried is myself ..so use it at your own risk .

    hmm mate, Like I said I have never tried them before...You might try it for a few bucks if you need the exchange that badly and let us know if it was scam or legit..The Pagerank is high...but I repeat I have never tried it before so I dont know if its legit or not ...Just giving out a factor in favor of the site

    All the reliable exchangers have stopped working with Liberty Reserve, since their mass scam.

    They basically took a large sum ammount of several exchangers.

    You'd better go with WMZ (Webmoney), they're more reliable.

    LR has been up since 2001, it's not a scamming program. The ugly thing that frequently happens in the e-currency world is rival companies may launch massive DDOS attacks against the most popular program, in order to shut the site down temporarily---which results in loss of confidence in the site. Kind of like sabotaging a successful biz, disrupting it into failure, then declaring the biz was a scam because it failed.

    Another site to exchange cc to LR or other e-currency is xmlgold. net (you have to get your card verified with them first, SMS text process is involved). Other sites that may do so are listed on LR's exchangers' page.

    i have fund my LR many times through wu from, swapgold;com so far they are the fastest i know so far and have used them manytimes. If you want to get a relaible exchanger, go directly to to the lr sites and click on fund account, you will see a list of many exchangers browse down to choose the one is best to you, i think there are some that accept cc for US residents or so just browse there, all exchagers on the lr sites are accredated and safe to use

    Guys LR is a legit site and I have done a lot of business with them. They tend to maintain their site time to time for updates and extra security. I feel my money is more safer in LR compared to paypal because paypal can be easily hacked wherelse if you are using LR, you'll know how hard it is to hack it.

    As for exchangers, they have many reliable exchangers recommended by LR in their site. I got one from my country recently and he is exchanging with me very smoothly and without any extra commission. I get in touch with him via phone and it's as easy as that. Try a small amount before u send larger amounts to minimize your risk of getting scammed.

    I read in LR before this that they are going to launch an in-house credit card funding soon, it supposed to be on 15th March for VIP LR members, they had it on their blog as well. I hope that works and exchanging will be easier.

    To the OP, try finding an exchanger in your country via LR recommended exchangers, it's easier and safer to work. Then exchange a small amount and always exchange in small amounts. They shouldn't charge u more than 3% of the fee, but normally it's free to exchange (as in my case).

    UPDATE : Liberty Premium (from LR BLOG)

    Shortly you will see a new menu item on our web site called LR Premium. LR Premium is a membership level that will allow users to become voluntarily verified and once they are, they will be able to order debit cards, purchase Liberty Reserve inventory directly from us via credit cards and to (NEW FEATURE) be able to buy and sell Liberty Reserve directly to us via bank wire, for orders of USD 10,000 or Euro 10,000 or more.

    Cheers! :tee:
