As you have all become "verified members" of MtGox you must ask yourself why they would need to verify your identity with a photo ID and personal bill of some sort.  They will tell you they are verifying your information to avoid fraud, which is complete bull shit.  They know your name, your appearance, and your home address.  To whom do you think they sell this information?  MtGox is paid by the US government for all user information and transaction information.  The Feds are able to track high volume transactions for illegal activity.  They are paying MtGox a large sum of $ for this information.  Think I sound like a paranoid crazy?  I've had 3 associates who frequently use MtGox and SR receive calls from the ATF.  I have no idea if there is a viable alternative, but I would highly recommend not using MtGox if you are using SR.

I'd like to share my recent experience with MtGox.  I deposited about $1k to mess around with.  I purchased 45 bitcoins with no problem.  Then two days ago, I get an email stating that there's been a withdrawal from my account and that if I didn't authorize it, I should reply immediately.  I replied immediately telling them to freeze my account.  Then I tried to login to MtGox, couldn't and my IP was blocked.  Furthermore, I tried password recovery but that was also blocked.  Turns out someone hijacked my account, changed the email and password, cashed all my money for bitcoins and withdrew everything, about 300 bitcoins.  I can't believe you can change the email and password of an account without confirmation from the original email.  Anyway, my support ticket is closed and my account is empty.  Thanks MtGox.
