I just attempted to get a withdrawal of my USD from MtGox to Dwolla and got the following in an email:

Dwolla Support
MAY 14, 2013  |  01:44PM CDT
<name removed>,

Due to recent court orders by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland seizing the account of Mutum Sigillum LLC (“Mt. Gox”), Dwolla is immediately no longer legally able to service Mutum Sigillum LLC’s account.

As a result if you have not seen funds arrive in your Dwolla account from this merchant then this will not be occurring with Dwolla. You will want to contact Mutum Sigillum LLC (https://mtgox.com/contact-us) to inquire on how to go about withdrawing these funds.

Sincerely,
Dwolla Support

Anyone else seen this? I guess this is the fallout from the Coinlab lawsuit?

Ditto.

Guess I might have to look into direct bank transfers for withdrawals in the future.  Any other thoughts for reliable USD withdrawals?

Did you add the "seizing" wording to your email or is everyone else getting a different email?

Why does your email say "seizing the account"; and the presumably identical email quoted by everyone else doesn't say that?

Your headline is totally misleading.  All that it says is that you can't get your money out via Dwolla now.  There is no Mt Gox account in the USA

Mine doesn't say anything about "seizing".

I have money in limbo too. Isn't this just great.

Well to be fair the bank system doesn't exactly like Dwolla either, so it's double whammy.

This will be interesting though.

MtGox is outside the jurisdiction of the US government, they can't seize their accounts or anything of theirs at all.  Maybe the email is badly worded

This account has recently been hacked and taken over, I haven't posted anything for about two years.  Whoever has been using it and pretending to be me is a scammer.

So how does it work on their end? Gox must have a Dwolla account. The email indicates they no longer have access to it.

It was only a matter of time before the USG started closing the avenues for converting BTC between USD.

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

Or maybe the OP has intentionally altered the email to make it appear worse than it actually is.  While the others who have quoted their emails have done so accurately.

It's possible they were waiting for an agreement with the Japanese. At this point we can only speculate... but don't think that governments are isolated from one another, especially when Bitcoin's market cap is small fry compared to any political sweetener.
