I'm not going to be laundering any money. I just want to buy bitcoins.

The uncle I mentioned is a blood relative (brother of my father) and we share the same last name (surname.) I can teach him to buy using GPG, but he's a senior citizen so that might involve more than a couple of emails and chats. He's been living in the United States for more than 30 years with 3 children (my cousins) and a few grandchildren.

It's that, or I fly to the US and open a US bank account; although that's going to be a problem for me since I've given up my green card years ago. I will have to fly in and land as a tourist on a multiple entry visa. I used to have a US bank account about 10 years ago when I was studying in UIC (University of Illinois in Chicago) and Northwestern University. So I had a state ID, a US driver's license, and of course my student ID. All expired now of course.

I want to buy as myself, not posing as someone else.

This could also be my excuse to revisit Six Flags or MGM or Florida. (I took a long road trip from IL to FL, with family, close to winter time.)

You probably need to look for a new source of bitcoins, and give up on purchasing them from BitcoinsDirect.  Trying to find ways around their policy is just going to force them to have to try to prevent you from doing so.  Telling everyone in the world in BitcoinDirect's forum thread how you plan to circumvent their policy is making it easier for them to identify your efforts and prevent you from doing so.

BitcoinsDirect has legal obligations.  They are not going to risk their business and potentially their freedom to help you circumvent those obligations.

I'm not trying to circumvent or find ways around. I am trying to be in full compliance. If it means I have to be in the US, I just want to be clear about that before I buy my $3000 plane ticket or visit the US Embassy in my country to apply for a $200 visa. So when the immigration officer asks me "business or pleasure?" I can honestly say "a little bit of both."

That also means, I am fully documented by the US government and BitcoinsDirect should have no problem accepting my money once I legally open a US domestic bank account.

If I wanted to go around, I'd have done it already. Also, I'm not announcing that someone else could have done it as that goes without saying.

The alternative is to do business with an offshore competitor, if they even exist.

I probably won't even do it then, as it will cost me more to travel, than I would have wanted to buy only bitcoins. So, I'm just asking, in case I'm actually going there.

As long as your wire is made from a US bank you are fine.
As for foreign competitors, I certainly hope we get some.

That's good to know. Would it matter what bank? Or let me rephrase that, will it be better if I opened an account at Wells Fargo?

It doesn't matter.  Any bank can wire funds to any other bank in minutes.  The need for US based bank is US based banks follow certain KYC (Know your customer) procedures (proof of identity, checking against terrorist watchlist, etc).  Foreign banks "may" not follow similar procedures which increases the KYC requirements for MSB.  We simply don't have the time or resources to follow those enhanced KYC procedures so we opt out of accepting foreign wires.  You can thank the US government for that burden.

This was my first wire with TC but not my first transaction.  Everything went smooth as ever and I had my coins in a matter of hours.  This cat is highly recommended!

That wouldn't have anything to do with the turnover of 40,000 BTC at MtGox a bit over an hour ago, would it?  Grin

Perhaps you managed to get some cheap purchases in as the exchange rate dropped to $109.42 and then bounced right back up to $116?

Well we have had high volume regardless of the spike but yes we generally keep orders on multiple markets to soak up "panic supply" so we got even more coins than normal.

I did all that, even practiced by encrypting a message to myself and decrypting it successfully before I imported your key and encrypted one that I emailed to you. Did you get it ok?

Probably our inbox is packed.  We are not accepting new PO "yet".  Hopefully sometime today.  If the markets can delivery timely quotes and volatility is less than 30% an hour we will start accepting POs.  I will get funding instruction to all new clients (like yourself) in the next couple hours.

Still nothing, not in spam or trash folders. Was just told by someone else that they got instructions from you.

Please send another request.  That prior message is from over a month ago.  To my knowledge all emails have been responded to.

Tangible, I sent you an email (encrypted as per your instructions) about 2 hours ago, and requested wiring instructions.  Did you receive it?

 I think its too late to send a wire today at this point, because of my bank's cut off time (but I really needed to send it today).  Please advise.

@TangibleCrypto

I emailed you my public key so you can decrypt my emails to you.  I would like to wire you the funds today, but we are getting near my bank's cutoff time to send wires.  Please advise.
