Hi,

do you know whether it is possible to have a Dwolla account without being a US-resident? As I understand it, you need a postal address and a phone number. The first one isn't much of a problem as I have quite some friends living in the US and I can forward mails to them. As for the phone number I'm not quite sure how to handle that one. Do you need a US bank account to actually use dwolla? My intention would be to use dwolla as a payment receiving and payment sending option, e.g. I can withdraw some MtGox USD to dwolla and then pay other people with it as transaction costs are quite cheap. (i.d. I would neve rneed a bank account to deposit/withdraw USD)
Does anyone have any experience with such an issue?

when signing up, the site does state "Dwolla is currently only available to users in the United States."

dwolla's user agreement states: http://www.dwolla.com/dialogs/terms_and_conditions.aspx

You agree that you will not at any time attempt to falsify your identity

they could do things, such as freeze the funds until you provide u.s. identity though nothing like that has been reported so far.

Do you need a US bank account to actually use dwolla?

nope - you do not need to link a bank account to your dwolla account.  

My intention would be to use dwolla as a payment receiving and payment sending option

why not just use the mt. gox redeemable code / voucher method for sending mtgox usds?  it transfers instantly and is free.

Can one go around this USA phone number limit and use some free or cheap service, use someone elses number?

PS: here we can signup for update if dwolla is in our country: http://blog.dwolla.com/global
