Liberty Reserve's web site is currently not working. Their domain names are not resolving. The blog site where they post maintenance news is also not working.

Arthur Budovsky Belanchuk, 39, on Friday was arrested in Spain as part of a money laundering investigation performed jointly by police agencies in the United States and Costa Rica.
