Department of Homeland Security Shuts Down Deposits To and From MT. Gox and Dwolla

An anonymous reader sends this excerpt from BetaBeat:“The Department of Homeland Security appears to haveĀ shut down the ability to use Dwolla, a mobile payment service, to withdraw and deposit money into Mt. Gox, a Bitcoin trading platform. … A representative for Dwolla told Betabeat that the company is ‘not party’ to this matter and encourages those with questions to reach out to Mt. Gox or the DHS. ‘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),’ he said. ‘In light of the court order, procured by the Department of Homeland Security, Dwolla has ceased all account activities associated with Dwolla services for Mutum Sigillum while Dwolla’s holding partner transferred Mutum Sigillium’s balance, per the warrant.'”
