Payza Site Seized By Feds

The website has been seized, the office of U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu of the District of Columbia confirmed tonight. It was not immediately clear how the action will affect Payza customers worldwide, but Liu’s office has updated an information site here.

In the update, authorities provided an email address for persons who have questions or concerns about their Payza accounts.

Payza was mostly mum today about prosecutors’ announcement yesterday that Payza and its operators had been indicted.

A Facebook post today under a Payza account said this:

As some of you may be aware of already, Payza is currently dealing with some legal matters in the United States. We cannot give any specific details at this time, but please be aware that this is an accusation and it is NOT evidence of guilt. Right now, this is affecting our Website, Blog and Reference Center, but we are working on a solution and we do not want you to worry. Unfortunately, we cannot share any more information right now.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, 
Team Payza

Payza unlawfully processed more than $250 million in transactions for Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes and a child-porn site, authorities said.

  1. They have a new site up and trading already

    how long will this cat and mouse game play?

  2. John, it will take a little time, but it will get shut down. Multiple foreign jurisdictions involved.

    Just be glad they shut down the major site and are freezing assets. We have been begging law enforcement to go after these payment processors for more than 15 years.
