I just tried to withdraw funds from MtGOX....

"Your account is currently pending review, please visit https://mtgox.com/forms/verification"

This is bit-coins I recently placed into the account. They are now blocking the withdrawals and demanding verification... even to withdraw 2 bit-coins....

These were clean coins from mining.

Not their fault, they just don't feel like being raided. Should have used localbitcoins or something.

Their TOS states that they can suspend your account for verification. You agreed to that when you created the account.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

So what you are saying is they are so fucking arrogant  that they cannot drop me an email  informing me they have held my account &  that they don't allow BTC to be withdrawn without verification?

The fact that I actually need BTC urgently does not come into it then?

It happened since last night......

The issue is that to get verified takes time...., which they could have saved by letting me know before hand.......

Or is someone trying to build a database of miners personal information.....?

Something must have suddenly changed at MtGox. Normally they do not block transfers for verification if you want to withdraw your bitcoins. Strange they didn't announce this if they really start blocking bitcoin transfers until the account is verified.

They can go fuck themselves after this.......
It's completely messed up the business opportunity I needed the cash for.
I could have had the account verified if they had let me know before I needed the coins.

I think that happened sometime ago, you need to submit your verification and have it approved before you can do anything at Mtgox nowadays.

I think that happened sometime ago, you need to submit your verification and have it approved before you can do anything at Mtgox nowadays.

With the exception of depositing, that is.

There's not a bank in world that I can walk into and open an account without providing ID, yet Mt Gox can take your Bitcoin deposit without knowing exactly who you are, but when it comes time to withdraw your own funds, you have to jump through rings like a trained dog.

Here's my take: If this is true that a person needs to now show ID to withdraw their bitcoins, then Mt Gox just drove the last nail in their coffin, and everybody should get out ASAP.

Rumor has it that there's an excellent credit union here in the US that accepts bitcoins. As far as trading goes, give it a few months when open trading in the open (literally) will be all the rage in every major city in the world, not counting a few villages as well.

It's been true for at least a year and a half (in my experience). Any BTC deposits into gox, required AML checks to get it out.

I don't know if the credit union takes BTC but I know they take BTC donations. That credit union is the Internet Credit Union, who just bailed out all the Bitfloor depositors

Found this in the Terms Of Service.


Mt. Gox will request identification information (such as an identity card, invoices, Government issued photographic identification, utility bill, residential certificate, signed certification of cohabitation, or similar, banking information) depending on the amounts deposited on the Accounts or the presence of suspicious activity which may indicate money-laundering or other illegal activity. Identification of the bank account from which funds are transferred to the Account may also be requested. In certain cases notarization of certain documents (including apostille) may be requested. Transactions may be frozen until the identity check has been considered satisfactory by Mt. Gox as required by applicable money laundering laws. Mt. Gox may request additional identification information at any time at the request of any competent authority or by application of any applicable law or regulation.

Accounts may be used strictly for the purposes defined in these Terms.

But , This is in the FAQ

Transaction Limits

• There are no limits on Bitcoin deposits to Mt. Gox accounts.                                                               

• There are no limits on currency deposits into a Mt. Gox account.

• Currency withdrawal limits depend on whether your account is verified or trusted.

 I cannot find any specific conditions on BTC Withdrawals yet.

I have withdrawn BTC to my wallet many times from Gox over the past few months. I have never been verified, I don't withdraw fiat, I just use Gox to make more BTC when the BTC/USD is volatile there.

They required all sorts of verification from me as well initially.
