I finally created a Dwolla account so that I may purchase some Bitcoin through Mt. Gox. I gave them my SSN already and now they want a photo ID? Lame! Paypal doesn't even demand a photo ID.

How else can I get some Bitcoins with my credit card?

Have others had good results getting Bitcoin OTC? Can one get Bitcoin OTC with credit card? What about Crypto X change?

They're new. I've never used them. So I can't comment on there credibility.

Hmm... They have never asked me for an ID. I don't know why they would need one. If you fund your account from a bank, why would they care about your identity?  Are you trading at a high volume, like over 10k/ month.

One word, chargebacks, that's not very hard to figure out.

Dwolla did not require me to give them my SSN or photo id, just a verified bank account.  But I'm not all that trustful of Dwolla anyway.  I'm thinking about closing my Dwolla account and your post makes me confident I've made the right decision.  Sounds like a shady operation, and the bitcoin community doesn't need any more of those.

I just created the account yesterday. I haven't done any trading. Just the simple act of creating an account requires photo ID? This whole stuff was what made me like Bitcoin in the first place. The fact that we're still this dependent on the system is bad news.

You can buy physical bitcoins for credit cards or PayPal at memorydealers.com

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I have used them once to try it out and it worked for me.

I also really like physical bitcoins and own quite a few.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!
