There is no official news announcement yet, so I recommend waiting to hear it directly from WebMoney Transfer, but today people trying to log in from the United States are getting the following message:
Please be advised, the services and products described on wmtransfer.com, webmoney.ru and offered by WM Transfer ltd. are not being offered within the United States and not being offered to U.S residents or citizens, as defined under applicable law. WM Transfer ltd. and its products and services offered on the site wmtransfer.com,webmoney.ru are NOT registered or regulated by any U.S. including FINRA, SEC, FSC, NFA, FinCEN, CFTC or ASIC.
This is no surprise, the large successful global companies are all pulling out of the U.S. market because of increased regulation on Prepaid Access. As the global leader in digital currency transfers, we expected WebMoney to cease U.S. operations and continue protecting their global customers. WebMoney is an industry leader and new funding methods in 38 countries provide exceptional opportunities for global customers.
Closing the U.S. market to all digital currency companies really does show that banks own and control everything in America.
