I have registered to MtGox and sent them some money via LR. But now when I try to sign in it is written "Your IP has been blocked because of too many failed login attempts." But I had signed in only once before I sent them money so which "many failed attemps" do they mean? Is MtGox a scam? I use Tor as a proxy with JS and Java disabled and antivirus with latest updates. I do as much as possible to secure everything. Can you help me with this?

Thank you.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

No mtgox is not a scam!

They have however for security reasons blocked Tor (that's where the failed login attemps come from in large volumes). Use a different service or logon directly.

Can you recommend me some safe service which will be work with MtGox? I am afraid of the man in the middle attacks so I don't want to use banking services directly. Thank you.

when you say 'different service' do you mean a different exchange, or do you mean a different service like tor? if the latter what other service would you recommend?
