charged in $6b laundering case :saevilw:
Yup, looks like everyone's LR funds are locked up
Unfortunately I had too much money there. But I blame only US government, because I believe those info they are putting in public are mostly lies.
A lot of users use LR for legitimate reasons but in media, they said that LR is financed by child porn and cybercime.
Oh America, from when did they rule the world?
Sorry to hear..
How much is in your LR account?
I would prefer not to say exact number, but it's in thousands
And yeah, that thing about media you said - it's always like that. They will never mention individuals who used that service for legit reasons and now lost their money for good.
I guess I'm lucky I use Paypal and Alertpay. But $6 billion? damn.
Oh crap ! $6 billion ..zzzzz
Oh No. Sorry to hear that...
America is not right
They cant steal money that way
Unfortunately nobody plans to stop them, they keep getting away with shit like this all day long, then the media backs it up with their bullshit and the masses of sheeple BELIEVE IT. Been going on for decades.
Liberty reserve is well known to support illegal HYIPs (high yield investment program) ponzi scheme and there is no way to get your money back or request a refund with LR, when you get caught to a HYIP the result is you loose your hard earn money and that's from one view for others who earn VIA HYIPs it's golden online bank but that's not fair. I know this because I got caught to HYIPs and lost my money on the early 2010.
what a seize by US Government of MU and LR now im lucky i hate LR since years :d
sorry for those who lost their money
To all of those crying that their cash has now been lost forever, etc. - that's not the case at all.
During the press conference on the whole thing, the public attorney dealing with the case made it clear that anybody who had legally obtained funds in their LR account were welcome to contact his office and that these funds would be disbursed.
So if you did something dodgy, you can obviously say goodbye to your cash, but the innocent guys are very likely to get every penny back. It's not in the US government's power to confiscate all funds from all accounts because a portion (no matter how large) of the overall funds seized was illegitimately obtained.
It's funny that big banks are too big to jail, because they would destabilize the entire system according to the government, but going after small "banks" like Liberty Reserve is ok. I read somewhere that 6b is less than one percent of what a big bank was laundering.
That 's bullshit. LR was like cash. Once you give it away, it 's gone. Transaction completed. Well, that 's the way it should work mate, that 's why we preferred LR over PP, where every scumbag "buyer" can charge back and keep the goods..
Weren't you money "hard earned" when you were happily spending it away to HYIP and jizzing your pants with the thoughts of "future riches"?
Oh, good. Just because you were stupid enough to get into HYIP, we should burn all the cash in the world just in case you get stupid again in the future.
a) I suppose contacting his office isn't simply sending an email - you 'll have to deal with a huge bureaucracy to prove about the legality of those funds, especially if non-US citizen.
b) Even if you get credited the LR back, who 's going to exchange them for USD?
I'm not too familiar with the US laws but on this side of the pond the burden of proof lies on the accuser, rather than on the accused, meaning that they would have to prove that your funds were obtained illegaly, not the other way around.
That's a fair point, lol.
