I want to buy a decent # of bitcoins (~5000).

I've been trying to jump through the various hoops to buy some bitcoins for about a week without much success.  I opened a Dwolla account, but they restrict transfers from the bank to $5000.  It took 48 hours just to verify my bank account with them.  So I requested a transfer of $5000.  Only after 24 hours did they say that I'm not really verified, and that they can't do it unless I upload a photo id.  Not sure I want to jump through these hoops if there are going to be another ten steps which take me a month to take.

In order of priority, I want a way to buy that's

1) fast
2) private
3) low commission

What's the best way to do this?

That will be 44750 dollars...Will that be cash or charge?  Tongue

Did you try #bitcoin-OTC? Or just open an account on one of the exchanges.

Being your first post and all, I don't see anyone handing ~5000 BTC over for some PayPal or the likes!

Tangible Cryptography LLC can supply wholesale bitcoins however our volume is  roughly 1,000 to 1,500 BTC per day so it will take a few days to handle an order of that size.  Price is @ MtGox last with no fees or slippage.  If funded by a bank wire or bank deposit you can have your first batch of coins the same day.  As a new customer you will be limited to a maximum of $5,000 on your first transaction.  We can give you a 1% discount below MtGox on subsequent purchases if part of a larger deal.

Setup GPG, import our company private key, and send us a test message.  We would be happy to discuss your options.

Are you in the USA? Try Bitfloor.com - using a cash deposit there might be the fastest route possible. Also the lowest exchange fees.

D&T also provides an excellent option.
