    What could be the reason for this? There has to be a solid one as companies generally offer services to U.S. citizens prior to others. YPN is still in beta, duh!!!!!!
    Need some time to handle deferred joining date by three big IT companies.

    If your work is still pending, I'll soon get in touch.

    Probably they fell afoul of the IRS...

    Some people are saying it is due to anti-fraud reasons and online gambling issues, but I doubt that. Fraud takes place elsewhere most of the time.

    My guess would have been fraud and the inability to control it. Maybe the legal issues arising from that stopped making it worth their while.

    Fraud is a global issue. I doubt they would have singled out the US for that.

    I'm more inclined to believe Will's theory. It seems more likely that the IRS and other such agencies are making it very difficult for MB to do business with US customers. The House just passed a law that allows the IRS to snoop on all online purchases (ie ebay, amazon, etc). MB might have been unwilling to play that game.

    If Im getting this clear,

    US -> US is not supported? US -> MACEDONIA or MACEDONIA -> US is supported?

    Because I sent money in December.
