Payza, an HYIP-friendly payment processor currently under fire from the receiver in the Zeek Rewards Ponzi- and pyramid-scheme case, is reporting on Twitter that it is experiencing a web outage.

At the time of this PP Blog post, the outage appears to be more than four hours old. A post with no timestamp at the Payza Blog says the processor expects “everything to be back to normal within 18 hours. You may experience some interruptions and connection errors until that time on our website, member’s area, and Customer Support Pages.”

Members of the Traffic Monsoon “program” are complaining on Facebook about the outage. Traffic Monsoon is a purported “advertising” venture reportedly served by Payza and shut off by PayPal.

“Hello, what is going on with PAYZA?” one Monsooner asked. “I can’t get to the site and therefore I cannot buy more adpacks with the money I have on the account.”

Another Monsooner ventured. “I saw other people have the same problem than me. Paya acknowledged they have problems but don’t say what kind of problems. Isn’t this worrying? First Paypal, now Payza, and still no news of the bank in Dubai.”

The PP Blog observed a message from Incapsula when it tried to load Payza’s website.

“You’ve requested a page that currently is on the Incapsula network,” the message read. “Incapsula was unable to connect to the server.”

Incapsula provides DDoS protection. Whether a DDoS attack was responsible for the Payza outage was unclear.

More may be known later this month on an investigation involving Payza and the Obopay payment processor by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

UPDATE 4:23 P.M. EDT U.S.A. Payza says on Twitter that “Our website is back up and running smoothly, thank you for your patience.”
