However i did send that much money in one go to mtgox and do you know what? Yeah, and the joke is, banks like HSBC have been engaging in blatant money laundering practices They finally got their wrists slapped, but it makes all the smackdowns of the little guy seem grossly unfair.
This is making worried, although I haven't had an issue yet I think it was really a user interface problem. OKPAY does take a percentage from the money you process through them.
Its in the fine print but I knew that going into the deal. OKPay are quite paranoid about AML and another problem is that their support people seem to be very bad at English, so their replies are often hard to understand.
Their support are also slow. However in my experience they are an honest company. They do appear to be honest Wiring money to Gox directly is so easy by comparison - takes exactly 24 hours for me.
I've found similar, but it's a just pain in the ass rather than a scam. I find transfers take a long time, rate is worse than mtgox, support service fairly poor, but I dont think they're dishonest.
I've had a similar round of stupidity from them. In all fairness they have been willing to take a screenshot, but hey, that's just totally stupid - they might as well not bother given the photoshoppableness of it.
And how do we know you aren't one of OKPays competitors? Strange that you wouldn't use your personal reddit account. Perhaps it would be illustrative to look at the history of bitcoin company failures and scams, and see how many people have gotten money back.
See, the thing I was getting at there is, nobody has ever gotten any money out of a bitcoin company in a court anywhere.
The onus generally falls on somebody making a positive claim rather than a negative claim. It's not reasonable for him to submit evidence of every single court case ever in order to show that none of them were about scammers being forced to return money.
A recap of every court case ever would probably take quite a few posts: I wish I had a job bitcoin related but no I just day trade.
I know you don't seriously think I work there. Doesn't seem like OKPay Would you mind answering approximately how much a day you move through them?
I used bitinstant back a while ago and yeah it's fine. Okpay is great but are very careful about money laundering.
They don't allow daily transactions of 2k but would be fine with a weekly transaction of 10k in my experience. I have heard stories of people being delayed with payments, but this does not mean that they are a scam.
Its libelous to say things like that, based on the a process being slow. I'm verified as well. I think with larger amounts they have stricter policies in place for vetting and such.
Of the stories i have heard okpay do get the situation sorted, although they are slow. Jesus fucking christ do they want to know the last time you took a shit too?

Questions Tags Users Badges Unanswered. Why is OkPay not allowed in the United States? Being available in other countries has little bearing on being available in the US.
It would like be much more expensive and complicated to work in the US because here we have a lot more regulations and requirements than say Venezuela.
I'm wary of their claim of " countries". Given that there are only UN-recognized countries in the world plus 2 observer nations , that seems like a bit of an exaggeration.
There are of course other disputed nations that aren't fully recognized which would bring the total over , but that's a technicality. It's still a pretty bold claim to say they are supported by basically every country in the world including ones that don't exist?
Perhaps the problem for OkPay is current US legislation. The penalties for parcipating in movement of money are quite steep and the legal costs in US are worse.
It might be that OkPay and the banks they are using just do not want to risk anything. Why does the map graphic on their website imply they're in the US?
What does the fact those countries are communist have to do with anything? Some interesting summary points: This apparently allowed them to reverse a policy in the UK: However, you took some time to research your conclusion and have supported your opinion well, so I appreciate you digging through what you found.
There's a difference between "unlicensed" and a scam, of course. And also a difference between "company that I'd like to do business with" and a scam.
I didn't mean to say or imply that I think that OkPay is a scam. Just that they have some regulatory hurdles and that those hurdles are significant enough that I personally would hesitate to use them.
Not included in my answer, for example: When they stopped working with Mt Gox they ended up unable to directly refund customers some of their holdings under court order in the BVI.
MD-Tech 6, 1 22 DoubleVu 3 9. I strongly echo the sentiment in the last sentence. If it's actually the banks on their backend that don't have access to US financial markets that's really surprising.
I suppose it's possible they're just using really small banks with limited international exposure; but would worry that they're using sketchy banks that are blacklisted in the US.
I don't see this in the link. The closest that I see is this: The problem is for the banks to work as an intermediate between OkPay and U. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
