I doubt it very much. $28 is, frankly, peanuts and how are you going to prove that it was truly legitimate in the first place? You may well have been just another victim of an elaborate scam! Liberty Reserve was shut down in May 2013 by the United States federal prosecutors under the Patriot Act after an investigation by authorities across 17 countries. The United States charged founder Arthur Budovsky and six others with money laundering and operating an unlicensed financial transaction company. Liberty Reserve is alleged to have been used to launder more than $6 billion in criminal proceeds during its history. United States attorney Preet Bharara stated users of Liberty Reserve could contact his office to inquire about getting their funds returned.
