STILL no response from MtGox on the issue, despite people berating them on FB and twitter

I had a gox > dwolla transfer in progress. I used the contact us section on mtgox - they were prompt in crediting the USD back to my gox account. Was a very small transfer however...


Personally I'm still going to use gox for some small speculation - but I've drastically reduced the amounts I keep there until we see how this turns out.

Anyone who keeps a balance on any exchange, in the form of BTC or < insert currency >, should realize that these funds are at risk, and can be "ghosted" at any time. Don't have anything there that you wouldn't be comfortable losing. Given the history of Mt. Gox specifically, I'm amazed that anyone still does.

Dwolla is bad news, period. Using them for any transaction related to BTC carries the same risk. Perhaps this DHS incident will remind people of this fact.

I'd also extend this to the conventional banking system. Don't have anything in there beyond what you can afford to take a 'hit' on. The cold winds of "bail-ins" and other financial chicanery are blowing, and it is just a matter of time before they touch every banking system on the planet.

I guess this is the fallout from the Coinlab lawsuit?
What does Department of Homeland Security has in common with the Coinlab lawsuit?

its definitely for coinlab, could be illegal, unless you have seen the entire coinlab mtgox contract it would be difficult to tell

Why have they removed the link on their home page? Also I can't see the post on facebook any more but it is still here: https://www.facebook.com/MtGox/posts/468895216528224

I would like to know how much money was seized.

MtGox please give some information.

MagicalTux answered this on IRC:
Code:
05:41 < zivester> I'm asking, if I have USD in my mtgox account... is that money in Japan or USA (or somewhere else)
05:42 <@MagicalTux> zivester: mostly in Japan
05:42 <@MagicalTux> we had some funds in the US on Dwolla, but we can cover for that
No exact numbers, but that isn't our business.  MtGox have often had delays in paying out Dwolla in the past because they never kept much money there.  Dwolla has a limit of 5000 USD per transfer as well, so the need for funds on Dwolla is very limited.

Thanks. I hope they really can along with the law suits. Would be interesting to know what is really going on behind the scenes.

Jed's account, which he didn't pass on to Mark when he sold the site to him, maybe?
