I can second: Intersango is trustworthy. I used SEPA wire transfer to their .pl bank account multiple times - handling was quick and satisfactory.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Heh, how convincing does this look? A bunch of newbies with about 4 posts sign up and immediately vouch for them. I promise I'm not a shill though.

OK so I retract my original statement that Intersango are a scam - I eventually got my money after 2 months and only after emailing them these posts - so to conclude the post - they are real but have poor customer service

Point to note - transferred money Friday to bitstamp and got it today lunchtime so thats even better than advertised

I have had quite good experience with them.  Twice transferred Euros to them, it appeared after a few days.  In one of the cases, the payment appeared as "need approval" and stayed like that for 24 hours, at which point I opened a ticket.  An hour later I got a reply, and the money appeared in my account.  In several cases have I withdrawn BTC from my account at Intersango, in every case the BTC have appeared in my wallet within seconds after making the request.  So all in all, I am a satisfied customer.

BUT there are two issues potential customers should be aware of.  First, they are currently having trouble with their UK bank, so transferring money in/out in GPB is currently impossible.  Second, they are at the receiving end of a Bitcoinica-related lawsuit.  I think it is unlikely that they will get their funds frozen, but nothing is impossible when lawsuits are involved, so I do not recommend leaving large sums on Intersango for extended periods.

"in every case the BTC have appeared in my wallet within seconds after making the request."

How is it possible? BTC transfer from one BTC address to another usually takes me several minutes and sometimes hours. Am I missing something?

Transactions can take minutes or hours to be confirmed, but should show up in your wallet as unconfirmed almost instantly. Bitcoins obtained from unconfirmed transactions cannot be spent and are not credited to your wallet balance until the transaction is confirmed, as unconfirmed transactions may turn out to be double-spent (and therefore invalid). Think of it as like waiting for a cheque to clear.

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4

Yep, that is what I meant.  My wallet showed the BTC as unconfirmed almost instantly, but of course it on average took 10 min to get the first confirmation.

Any chance of Intersango being able to take GBP anytime soon? It's turning into quite a mission to get hold of any btc here
