    Costa Rican authorities raided suspect´s home
    and offices in San José and Heredia.
    Arthur Budovsky Belanchuk, 39, on Friday was
    arrested in Spain as part of a money laundering
    investigation performed jointly by police agencies
    in the United States and Costa Rica.
    Costa Rican prosecutor José Pablo González said
    Budovsky, a Costa Rican citizen of Ukrainian
    origin, has been under investigation since 2011
    for money laundering using a company he
    created in the country called Liberty Reserve.
    Local investigations began after a request from a
    prosecutor’s office in New York. On Friday, San
    José prosecutors conducted raids in Budovsky's
    house and offices in Escazá, Santa Ana, southwest
    of San José, and in the province of Heredia, north
    of the capital.
    Budovsky's businesses in Costa Rica apparently
    were financed by using money from child
    pornography websites and drug trafficking.
    New York conviction
    According to records from the U.S. Justice
    Department, on July 27, 2006, Budovsky and a
    partner identified as Vladimir Kats were indicted
    by the state of New York on charges of operating
    an illegal financial business, GoldAge Inc., from
    their Brooklyn apartments.
    They had transmitted at least $30 million to
    digital currency accounts worldwide since
    beginning operations in 2002.
    The digital currency exchange, GoldAge, received
    and transmitted $4 million between Jan. 1, 2006,
    and June 30, 2006, as part of the money
    laundering scheme.
    Customers opened online GoldAge accounts with
    limited documentation of identity, then GoldAge
    purchased digital gold currency through those
    accounts; the defendants' fees sometimes
    exceeded $100,000.
    Customers could choose their method of
    payment to GoldAge: wire remittances, cash
    deposits, postal money orders or checks.
    Finally, the customers could withdraw the money
    by requesting wire transfers to accounts
    anywhere in the world or by having checks sent
    to any identified individual.
    Budovsky and Kats were sentenced to five years
    in prison for engaging in the business of
    transmitting money without a license, a felony
    violation of state banking law, but got probation.

    Upon asking HostGator about a null route, they gave example of it:
    -----------------
    Due to a Denial of Service Attack to the
    server, we have been forced to null route
    the server's primary IP address and
    assign a new address for its hostname
    and primary DNS server. This may cause
    issues with DNS propagation and
    accessibility for a few hours while we
    make these configuration changes. Some
    accounts may have been moved to
    another IP address. If you are unable to
    access your site on this server, please
    contact support. Denial of Service attacks
    are attacks in which a resource is tied up
    with garbage information sent by
    attacking servers, keeping legitimate
    attempts to access a resource from
    getting through. This form of attack does
    not involve any type of security
    compromise, it only makes the server
    difficult to reach, and it is temporary. We
    apologize for any inconvenience that this
    may cause and thank you for your
    continued patience.
    --------------------------
    Basically, Liberty Reserve IP has been null routed due to Denial of Service Attack on their servers. Let's just hope for the best !

    This is fuck though I am not used to keep big amounts on LR I lost something micro about 20-40$ but this is a real shit if LR goes down we are so used to its convenience (I had no problem with LR since around two years). Hope they recover it.
    Anyway I think that in case if LR is taken down people will jump to PM or other system of that kind.
    Though the exchange services will be hit hard I guess.

    Anyway USA did another shit lol :) the western governments are the ones who are truly involved in money laundering and other shit that is way worse (killing people for example) which that ukrainian fucker would never be able to do

    A friend of mine just lost $12k. I lost $300. A lot of people especially those who run HYIP business and accepting LR as primary payment option lost a lot and went down all of a sudden actually.

    Lost $46... not much, there are a lot of people who lost thousands of dollars with LR (especially HYIP owners and different exchange sites).
