Mt.Gox seems to be having issues handling SEPA transfers right now.

I'm facing a problem with Bitcoin.de which happen few days ago, after several exchanges with no problems it seems to have been a fraud made by my  exchange peer  that got way with my bitcoins and my money to buy them . Bitcoin.de recognized the issue but did not correct  my balance yet. We are not talking about a very large amount here so i hope they fix it in the next few days , but i lost trust one them !

Any one know Bitcoin.de are they reliable ?

Who should i complain if the don't assume their safety failure ?

I will post the end of this so you learn with my experience.

MtGox froze my account because I used a different IP than usual... certainly not trusting them anymore, as they won't let me withdraw a measly 2BTC.

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.

The lack of legal  regulation increase the risks. If legal protections arise it will lose some of is nice features for it !

Thats true , but sometimes you need to build contacts to create links , because i have made some good links to be able to sell and buy currency and in online business i need currency.

Thanks for the info, I was ready to jump in and get started but I'm starting to think I'll sit bit and try to work out the lay of the land first.

I think being skeptical is critical to success in a hostile environment.  I'm not to say the BTC community is hostile itself, rather just online financing should be as rigorously treated as offline ones (if not more).

This is pretty paranoid. I've invested thousands into GLBSE funds and with forum members. Most people with 200 or more posts are not here to scam people. Like anything else its not a good idea to invest more then you can afford to lose.

Paranoid you should be about your fucking world reserve currency and all the misery it causes for the planet !!!

Put those depleting reseve crooks behind iron bars , kill the creature from Jekyll island, instead of disolving our trust in each other.

That is the huge asset of bitcoin and this forum.......i can´t conceive but really think pirate40 should be minted on some future BTC physical bills or coins if he is

able to resist defrauding people by his scheme.......he need not, if finally just coming up with the right story.....we live in interesting times indeed.

Always start trusting when trusting yourself !!!

Paranoia can be reserved when you are too rich in BTC to be trusted by yourself anymore as OP explained Wink
