As a matter of interest, as I understand it Graham of Goldnow has an IT account and money. Maybe not a stack of money, but enough to pay some.
The goldnow site has several options on it, only one I have seen has any verification involved for outexchanges (I haven't looked at them all as I won't be using them all).
I can see no verification needed for Egold. Graham will have the IT virtual whatnot funds in his account and the real currency to back it, he only needs to send it to the person asking and to the correct account.
That shouldn't be such a big deal.
Counting chickens a bit maybe.....but once the funds are in the goldnow account at IT and he has the money....it is as if you were only dealing with them as far as I can see.
That was fun....talking about payments being made and getting them for a while
I also heard that Graham answers his telephone and communicates with people quite normally ...that's pretty cool too.
