No "better luck" for me.
Mtgox appears to be on suicide course. Has anyone been at their office?
Bruce Wagner claims to have, and with a camera. He never released the footage though as far as I can tell.
I was kind of looking forward to seeing if I recognized any parts of Shibuya. I enjoyed my visit there in the mid 00's but doubt that I'll make it back in person due the the radioactive death shroud building up in Northern Japan.
Any idea whom to address if they just keep blocking and do not pay?
It's been months of this game. Every time withdrawals are said to "work again" or "work over a different path", it turns out they work only for a day or two, and the limits make sure most of the funds stay. Really strange. They appeared like people who seriously try to do their job. What happened? Even if they were to keep the money and disappear somehow, what a bad deal! They could've helped us change the world, and made a fortune on the way.
I'm currently testing international wire, sent to two different, reliable target banks over 24h ago, none arrived yet. Roughly 2 days until I go into red alert and try to track where my funds are held; interestingly, the timing coincides with the mythical countdown.
Good luck to you. Let us know how it goes.
I've always had to balance the wire transfer fees I paid with the amount of USD that I will trust my exchange with and it's always a tough call.
