Mt. Gox Gets Goxed – Dwolla Account Seized By U.S. DHS:

In a post on BetaBeat by editor Jessica Roy (@JessicaKRoy) includes confirmation from Dwolla that funds held by Mt. Gox in the U.S. had been seized by the U.S. authorities.  Excerpts:

“‘The Department of Homeland Security and U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland issued a ‘’Seizure Warrant’’ for the funds associated with Mutum Sigillium’s Dwolla account (a.k.a. Mt. Gox),’ [a representative from Dwolla] said. ‘Dwolla has ceased all account activities associated with Dwolla services for Mutum Sigillum.’”

[Note – Camp BX, based in the U.S., is the only other market exchange that allows accounts to be funded with Dwolla and performs withdrawal of USD balances to Dwolla.   FastCash4Bitcoins performs cash-out service to Dwolla.]
