Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Liberty Reserve started to fail when my money started missing in their custody right from March 2013 and in April money was transferred from my customer to my account which they deny me access to the account claiming that someone tried to login into my account, they advised me to open new account which i did. I later discovered that $45662.73 was transferred to that my old account which they deny me access. Please in your investigation, investigate this too. The account number is U4086692.
Thank you.

Reached via Twitter, a representative from Shadowserver declined to comment on the outage or about Liberty Reserve, saying “We are not able to provide public comment at this time.” I could find no official statement from the U.S. Justice Department on this matter either.

Libertyreserve.com is not the only virtual currency exchange that has been redirected to Shadowserver’s DNS servers. According to passive DNS data collected by the ISC, at least five digital currency exchanges –, asianagold.com, exchangezone.com, moneycentralmarket.com and swiftexchanger.com – also went offline this week, their DNS records changed to the same sinkhole entries at shadowserver.org.

Sam Alfred · 26 May 2013 - 01:38
India · Reliance Communications

Dear Friends

neither they have been closed by U.S government nor they have closed their website themselves. If you are technical and check closely you will see their name server have been changed to ns1.sinkhole.shadowserver.org and ns2.sinkhole.shadowserver.org, this changes was done on May 24. Sinkhole is used to control or to stop bot.net attack mainly performed by hackers and shadowserver is a server which is used by ISC.

Same thing happened with few other sites, those were running successfully. Their DNS were also changed on same day and this happens because of attacks over these website.

If you check closely then till date U.S government has not appreciated their boys for the job they have done neither they have made an official statement. its very strange how a working website can go off immediately. If they had to run then they could hav run without changing their Name Server details. Why hey re-directed their DNS to a these name servers and why same thing happened with other Currency changers.

This is a point to think. If you are technical then visit krebsonsecurity.com/2013/05/reports-liberty-reserve-founde... and read this page thoroughly and understand. Hope the matter get clear to you.

Panic spread on the Internet Friday as word about Arthur Budovsky Belanchuk’s arrest reached users of his digital currency business Liberty Reserve, which was shut down on Friday.

Budovsky, 39, was arrested on Friday in Spain as part of a money laundering investigation performed jointly by police agencies in the United States and Costa Rica. U.S. officials likely will seek his extradition.

Costa Rican prosecutor José Pablo González said Budovsky, a former U.S. citizen and naturalized Costa Rican of Ukrainian origin, has been under investigation since 2011 in Costa Rica for suspected money laundering using apparent shell companies he created to run Liberty Reserve.

Budovsky relocated to Costa Rica after he and partner Vladimir Kats were indicted on July 27, 2006, in New York on charges of operating an illegal financial business, GoldAge Inc. – a precursor to Liberty Reserve – from their Brooklyn apartments, according to the U.S. Justice Department. U.S. officials said the two had transmitted at least $30 million to digital currency accounts worldwide since beginning operations in 2002.

Budovsky and Kats were sentenced to five years in prison in 2007 for engaging in the business of transmitting money without a license, a felony violation of state banking law. They received five years probation.

Officials have not commented on how much money Liberty Reserve accounts handled, nor how many clients are affected by its closing. But those numbers could be higher than in the GoldAge case.

The daily La Nación reported that Budovsky, a naturalized Costa Rican, renounced his U.S. citizenship last year, after the joint investigation began. The Tico Times could not independently verify that information, as Costa Rican government agencies are closed for the weekend.

In 2011, Costa Rica’s financial regulatory authority, the Financial Institution Superintendency (SUGEF), closed Liberty Reserve, citing a lack of transparency and accounting of funding sources, La Nación reported.

However, Budovsky continued operating the company in conjunction with other Costa Rican corporations, including Silverhand Solutions and Technology S. A, Worldwide E-Commerce Business S .A., Grupo Lulu Limitada, Triton Group A and A, S. A. and Cyberfuel.com.

The same year SUGEF ordered Liberty Reserve closed, U.S. prosecutors based in New York asked Costa Rican officials to begin investigating Budovsky and his companies. On Friday, San José prosecutors raided Budovsky’s home and offices in Escazú and Santa Ana, southwest of San José, and in the province of Heredia, north of the capital.

Investigators allege that Budovsky’s businesses in Costa Rica were used to launder funds from child p**nography websites and drug trafficking.

Both GoldAge and Liberty Reserve operated under a similar system, allowing users to nearly anonymously open accounts with limited documentation of identity. Deposits are backed by gold and other precious metals, and customers could withdraw money by requesting wire transfers to accounts anywhere in the world or by having checks sent to individuals.

U.S. officials have targeted companies like GoldAge and Liberty Reserve for years, saying they are hotbeds for criminal activity including money laundering, drug trafficking and tax evasion.

“The ability to conduct transactions in digital currencies is constantly available, making digital currencies more convenient than other methods of funds transfer, which may be limited by normal business hours and international time zones. Additionally, digital currency transactions can be conducted from any location or device with Internet access, ” a 2008 report by the U.S. National Drug Intelligence Center stated.

“Because most digital currencies are denominated into internationally recognized weights of precious metals, inconveniences traditionally associated with international financial transactions, such as calculating international exchange rates for another nation’s currency, are eliminated, ” the report added.

Liberty Reserve, which operated without oversight from any global agency, was a convenient tool for foreign currency brokers, as it allowed them to bypass local legislation and avoid exchange rate fluctuations, particularly in developing countries. But its lack of oversight also attracted organized criminal elements, prosecutors said.

“Payment in digital currencies makes it easier for traffickers to launder funds that no longer need to be placed into the traditional financial system. Payment can be immediately forwarded to an international digital currency account, perhaps in payment to the original source of supply, or further layered through multiple digital currency accounts and exchangers until reintegrated into the legitimate economy, ” the National Drug Intelligence Center stated.

To open a Liberty Reserve account, users needed only to submit a name, address, email address, date of birth and occupation.

Budovsky’s arrest and the closing of the Liberty Reserve website prompted a wave of online chatter from affected clients. Forex Magnates, which describes itself as a “specialized forex news and research source, ” called Liberty Reserve “the leading payment channel for traders in emerging and frontier markets.”

Citing a broker and analyst in Pakistan, Forex Magnates said, “Forex brokers have been benefiting from Liberty Reserve’s vast access as a payment provider, especially in countries where traders face difficulties in transferring funds. Liberty Reserve was a ‘gift’ for several traders, especially after the State Banks’ (State Bank of Pakistan) changes to international money transfers.”

Online reaction has also come from Nigeria, Malaysia and other countries.

An earlier story on www.ticotimes.net about Budovsky’s arrest prompted worried clients to ponder the fate of funds deposited with the company.

“[M]illions of client of Liberty reserve now worried for money around the world, plz give few more info..LR site is down now, ” one reader posted on The Tico Times Facebook page.

Whatever LR owner was doing (right or wrong), we as members don't care. I am sure over 90% of LR's members are doing legit and legal work. If the US authorities have found any fraudulent or illegal stuff then why should we be baring for that???

I know LR didn't pay any attention (whatsoever) towards the user's verifications and limiting their transactions to a certain amount until the are fully verified, which I think the should have, as other payment processors do.

I humbly request the US and Costa Rican authorities to restore the site immediately and make LR's admin to follow international regulations as other processors do. Because with no clear picture, most weaken heart users may get heart attacks or nervous breakdowns. If that happened then the US and Costa Rican authorities will be responsible for that... :(

Jonathan Capistrano who contacted LR about the status of peoples funds was told that they will not be closing down but are taking a break and that LR will be back “new and better” and finally said that funds will stay there, with no reduction or increase in value.

It’s down but it’s site itself when checked is active. LR owner was been arrested due to a fraud that he’ site created. As you can see the nameservers are been changed to
ns1.sinkhole.shadowserver.org
ns2.sinkhole.shadowserver.org

Shadowserver is used by the US Governments to seize a website that has did an online fraud. Basically, Libertyreserve is based on Costa Rica and US can’t do anything because it’s out of their juridical, so they contacted Costa Rica police etc. to cooperate with this and give them permission to do immediate action on this problem. They have been watched by the US Government since 2011 and they took action now. About the explanation I got from an LR staff. They will not close Okay? It’s not true that LR got hacked, they said they are just taking a break of whta happened back there. LR will be back with a new and better. They will not CLOSE, your funds will stay there, no reduce no increase. It will just stay.

I still have $1, 700+ USD remain unwithdraw :(
If it was the owner ONLY arrested. I do believe that liberty reserve is a company. It was not managed by one people or owner alone. Their blog is still working. Guys we can still retrieve our money back. I do hope and pray. If not, then let's do a massive complaints. Those money we earned and trusted from this company SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED. I still hope and pray that we can still retrieve back our money. For GOD SAKE, don't tell us. Dont tell me that Liberty reserve is managed by single people only, I know it's NOT. So if anyone reading this, Lets hope and pray that we can still retrieve back our money if not then this really sucks! :(

New York conviction

According to records from the U.S. Justice Department, on July 27, 2006, Budovsky and a partner identified as Vladimir Kats were indicted by the state of New York on charges of operating an illegal financial business, GoldAge Inc., from their Brooklyn apartments.

They had transmitted at least $30 million to digital currency accounts worldwide since beginning operations in 2002.

The digital currency exchange, GoldAge, received and transmitted $4 million between Jan. 1, 2006, and June 30, 2006, as part of the money laundering scheme.

Customers opened online GoldAge accounts with limited documentation of identity, then GoldAge purchased digital gold currency through those accounts; the defendants' fees sometimes exceeded $100, 000.

Customers could choose their method of payment to GoldAge: wire remittances, cash deposits, postal money orders or checks.

Finally, the customers could withdraw the money by requesting wire transfers to accounts anywhere in the world or by having checks sent to any identified individual.

Budovsky and Kats were sentenced to five years in prison for engaging in the business of transmitting money without a license, a felony violation of state banking law, but got probation.

Very Risk Period Now....Arthur Budovsky Belanchuk, 39, on Friday was arrested in Spain as part of a money laundering investigation performed jointly by police agencies in the United States and Costa Rica.

Costa Rican prosecutor José Pablo González said Budovsky, a Costa Rican citizen of Ukrainian origin, has been under investigation since 2011 for money laundering using a company he created in the country called Liberty Reserve.

Local investigations began after a request from a prosecutor’s office in New York. On Friday, San José prosecutors conducted raids in Budovsky's house and offices in Escazá, Santa Ana, southwest of San José, and in the province of Heredia, north of the capital.

Budovsky's businesses in Costa Rica apparently were financed by using money from child p***graphy websites and drug trafficking.

2.a lot of customers have been lost too much by hackers " disables ip security causes this matter, it let spammers and scams got their account by spam web pages link.
3.so Liberty reserve stopped the website temp. to resolve these problems.
4.be aware of websites which after paying LR transfer you to LR home page without any result, you will find yourself stolen all your balance.
5.when LR back please don't disable ip security, and don't try to pay to new website through too much balance account, try another account which have little balance.then you can trust it and use the main account.
6.I opened yesterday my LR account and transfered money, and everything is going ok.

Can you help me?

One of our clients wanted to pay for our product via liberty reserve. So, I advised him to buy liberty reserve of $2500 from one liberty reserve exchanger, with the site, e-forexgold.com.

For almost 2 weeks after payment was made to this LR exchanger, my client is yet to get LR funding. For the first one week, all his emails and live chat were ignored without any response from the company. When they responded to him, they will promise him to fund his account in 24 hours, and nothing will happen. They have kept promising to fund his account, and they don't deliver on it after 2 weeks. It seems they want to keep lying to him indefinitely and never fund his account.

It is obvious to me now, that this is a scam and fraud by the e-forexgold.com company.

I need advice from any one that knows how this issue can be resolved.

1. How can my client enforce a refund of the money paid, since he did a bank to bank transfer of funds via internet banking, in an Australian bank?
2. What else can be done to compel this company to either refund the money paid to them or to fund our client's LR account with the money paid to them?

I 'd appreciate every relevant and helpful advice I can get to help our client resolve this issue.
