I did not use Liberty Reserve services myself, but do see this as being a valid service. With US Government doing so much spying on it citizens and warrantless search and seizures, I would rather not have my bank account information held inside a USA bank. I would rather not have the USA and it corporations building profiles of my financial transactions This information can be used with malicious intent as well by people inside the banking system in creative ways.
so out of all this thread. the only 2 job professions i read people coque iphone 5 panda dab used LR for transactions is Forex Trading, and someone selling coque iphone 4s piscine pre paid debit cards
I mean honestly They sound like scams run by hackers. Sorry. Maybe I an ignorant American. But it sounds ridiculous to me anyone is making a living doing that kind of coque samsung note work.
And I can understand the argument that LR is cheaper then paypal, but I can understand how its its less secure or how money gets frozen too much
But ya i guess when all your doing is business with others hackers with stolen accounts that happens alot IMO, for an honest person like me that would make paypal actually safer, not the other way around.
And i starting to get very angry when i hear about you people complaining you don have healthcare. When the US ranks 32nd in the world and the only 1st world nation with no universal healthcare. Lots of Americans have no healthcare been struggling to keep work since the Great Recession of 2008. 10% unemployment on avg for the past 4 years and thats only coque huawei p30 who they count as still active.
Major corporations are shipping all the jobs overseas to your countries then you have the nerve to tell us the only way for you to feed your family is to use the internet for shady dealings, which usually means an American ending up with the short end..
