Heh, account verification to withdraw GBP would be fair enough. But for BTC? That's riduculous... It's not even a real currency technically, about as real as WoW gold.

You call verification for BTC transactions as "riduculous" and then...

And yeah, I have heared that if you're using a particular VPN, they will ask for ID regardless.
I think we all know why.

...accept it as a fact. Where you heard that? What particular VPN? Please explain you post or get used to being ignored, http://pastebin.com/irj4Fyd5

FYI, I just bought some coins on MtGox - I sent the transfer Wednesday evening and it showed early this morning.

Annoyingly, they asked for account verification when I tried to withdraw the BTC. I've uploaded the documents, now it's just a waiting game.
It was large BTC quantity? If you don't mind answering
No, it was only a small amount, so I thought I would be fine.

Without thinking I had my VPN running (as I do 99% of the time anyway), so this may be why?

If anyone has insight into how long verification can take I would be interested to hear.


The verification process can take as long as two weeks, it depends on your luck Smiley

You got some kind of warning for using a VPN? Sorry to bother with my questions, but I find the issue intriguing.
Just as an update, I received an e-mail today confirming I was verified. I have now withdrawn my BTC and feel confident to use them over Intersango for now.

I have asked them for more details on the possible VPN issue, but I'm still waiting to hear back.

I spoke with support at MtGox regarding UK transfers a while back, since faster payments show up instantly I was wondering why I didn't get credited for 2 days. I was told that as they are based in Japan it takes longer for the payment to show in there account...?

For really fast trades there are a few guys on here and OTC that do UK Bank > Bank transfers, did my first trade this way on here today and from first pm to coins in wallet it took maybe 3hrs so that's always an option if you need the coin fast.

I don't think that's quite true as the account we send the Faster Payment to is UK based.

Yeah didn't make much sense to me either since my transfers to my partners account (Barclays > Barclays) show up within seconds, just dug up the reply I got from support.

Mt.Gox Support, Dec-20 10:04 (JST):

Hello,

Usually it takes another business day for the information to be released to us from Barclays (as we are in Japan and we are in a different time zone). However, we will notify you once your account is credited. Thank you for your patience in the process.

Thanks,

MtGox.com Team

Was using Intersango until recently since they had a much faster turnaround 2-10hrs usually, but after the recent problems and having my funds still tied up in there 10 days after a transfer I think im going to stick to trading on here.

Cheers for digging that out.

I guess while the money is credited instantly, they get sent the list of transactions in daily batches in order to apply them to MtGox. Due to time zones this can take slightly longer than expected.

Final update!

The reason verification was needed was due to my VPN.

IP address XXXXXXX is using more than one account and we need verify the account to ensure that you use only one account.

So if you don't want to provide docs, don't use a shared IP.
