Months ago I've managed to increase my withdrawal limit by sending a photocopy of my national ID to the MtGox admins and proving that I am not an US citizen. After the hack that limit was back to the $1000 but I managed to catch MagicalTux at IRC and he lifted that limit again to $10000 daily. Last week I tried to withdraw money 3 times, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Today, after a week of waiting for the money transfers to arrive and 5 days after my inquiries, received following email (and got ignored again on IRC):
Natalie, Jul-11 10:51 (JST):
It appears that the status of the three withdrawals were AML, meaning they are over the limit.
To increase your withdraw limit (by default $1000 USD per 24 hours and $10000 USD per 30 days), please provide your account name and the copy of an official ID document (such as passport, driver's license, etc...).
We will review your document and increase your withdraw limit based on your risk profile.
If you wish to proceed, please respond back with at least one photo ID and the following:
Requested Daily Limit:
Requested Monthly Limit:
Please note that you can also send a notarized color copy of your ID document to this address (remember to include your mtgox account name) via registered mail (fedex, etc) :
Name: Mark Karpeles
Company: Tibanne Co. Ltd.
Address: 26-1 Sakuragaoka-cho
Address (cont): Cerulean Tower 15F
This seems bogus because in the UI I can see my increased limit and it lets me do these transfers (what was previously impossible).
