Didn't see any threads about this, so here it is. When I logged into our Payza account, I get this message:
Payza Announcement to Customers
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Payza’s account platform is no longer accessible to members in the United States. Therefore, you cannot add, send or receive funds to or from your account.
Unfortunately, the third party relationship that enabled U.S. members to access their stored value account services was terminated. It is with great regret that we have had to withdraw from the U.S. market.
All withdrawal requests will remain pending until further notice. We are working diligently on resolving this matter and will update you immediately with any developments.
Didn't receive any e-mails on this or anything. Typical.

We are unable to complete any requests to withdraw or transfer these funds at this time, as they are currently being withheld by Ultralight Financial Services, formerly known as Obopay Inc., a licensed U.S. money transmitter of which Payza was an agent.
Please contact Ultralight FS to request access to your funds. Additionally, you may wish to contact your state regulator, the details of which are listed below:
And the plot thickens.... If you go to Ultralight FS this is whats on their site.
FOR PAYZA CUSTOMERS:
The notification provided on Payza's website concerning funds you have on deposit with Payza is false and misleading. Ultralight FS (formerly known as Obopay) does not have any funds belonging to Payza or Payza's customers. Any claims for funds should be directed to Payza where your account was established and administered.
Felling the same thing that happened to liberty reserve. We have funds with them and I am afraid that the will shut down immediately.
But LR was shut down by the government for money laundering, no? From the looks of it, it seems like Payza is trying to run away with people's money. Has there been any further development or information regarding this? Are any other users in other regions affected?
