Information for developers

Liberty Reserve Referral Program   We invite everyone to take advantage of a special referral opportunity. Whether you are a business or an individual - everyone can participate in this referral program. When you learn about the great features inside Liberty Reserve, you will want to tell your friends. So why not get paid for it? Earn $0.25 cents on every referral without any limits. Each member that signs up using your referral link gets $0.05 in their account. All referrals are paid automatically upon successful account activation. It is a win - win situation. When you tell your friends or your web site visitors about Liberty Reserve, please give them the following link: http://www.libertyreserve.com/?ref=[your account number] Example: http://www.libertyreserve.com/?ref= U123456 You may also put this link within a Liberty Reserve banner on your web site. You can view our banners on the bottom of this page. Once the user clicks on this link and subsequently opens a Liberty Reserve account, you become his referrer. User cannot change who his referrer is once he creates his or her account. You can be a referrer to as many members as you wish. You will see the number of people you referred inside your account. You, as a referrer, will receive 10% of any fee that is generated from that user for his or her internal spend transactions. These payments will be automatically made to your account as long as that user is active. Requirements You must have $10 in your account to be a referrer. You must post your referrer link on any online page (web site, blog, forum, email account, etc.) Direct referral links entered in a browser will not work. Referrers that generate a lot of fake accounts will be frozen. Warn your friends and clients not to open fake accounts. You must not pay people for signing up under you.

System Update

Dear Friends,

    It has come to our attention, that we have to disclose about a little more than a dozen of Liberty Reserve accounts that had to be secured via API protocol after our system has detected suspicious behavior. Please rest assured that no money losses had occurred as all funds in question were moved out (but remained in our system) to help us monitor the situation and to discover similarities between accounts involved. This was done, via few recent system updates, to study the actual source of the concern and to apply remedy as soon as possible.As we have now resolved the issue, money will be sent back to the accounts within days and it is back to business as usual. Unfortunately, warning the users beforehand would have turned out to be counterproductive and delay our resolutions further. For this - we apologize.

    Running a system, as complex, as Liberty Reserve requires us to stay on cutting edge of latest technologies and solutions available while continuously trying to improve and make our system easier and more user friendly. This "balancing" act sometimes has its price tag of having to inconvenience our users once in a while, but rewards us with more sound system integrity and security. As always, your funds are safe with Liberty Reserve and you can count on us being there for you, even when it does not visibly appear to be so.  

    We advise you to never use any 3rd party e-wallet software that has not been produced by Liberty Reserve team, to always pay close attention to e-mails and to NEVER click on any links within those. For businesses-please come up with ways to audit your programmers or other technical personnel and limit or restrict access to your servers for your system admins, as it has been shown many time before that corrupt system administrators, programmers,disgruntled former employees, etc., appeared to be number one reason for unauthorized account access.

    Please ALWAYS note that the only accurate source of information will always be available on our official blog or on the web site. Please do not fall victim to false or inaccurate postings on forums, e-mails or via any other media.

    We sincerely appreciate your continued support and understanding.
