    How anonymous and easy to use liberty reserve actually is?
    If you are using it please share your experience, whatever it is, with it.

    Thank you!

    I'm a satisfied customer. I don't use bank transfers, though. Avoid credit card exchangers. They're ripoffs and scams. Bitcoins via WM-center works well.

    Would you recommend a safe place to buy them with paypal or credit card?

    I like BitInstant, but it's not up in the EU yet. See -https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=83209.140-

    Maybe someone else o_O

    Check out -https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Buying_bitcoins-

    I checked every provider from the bitcoin wiki and LR exchangers page for a way to fund with credit card and paypal.
    It's incredibly difficult! :)

    From all the 10s I found just one where i can fund that way, and i have to exchange person to person....and take some risks, even if they have good verification and feedback system.

    Yes, going from credit cards to Bitcoins is problematic, because cards have chargebacks, but Bitcoin transactions are irrevocable.

    Is there an online currency in your area that accepts cash deposits in stores?

    Ahhh Liberty Reserve the most seedy, scummy and dirty money on Earth. That's my opinion.
