Evansville FBI acknowledges Liberty Dollar raid


November 15, 2007 – According to Bernard von NotHaus, monetary architect of the Liberty Dollar, federal agents raided the Evansville, IN headquarters of the Liberty Dollar at “approximately 8:00am this morning”. In his e-mail, Von NotHaus indicated federal agents seized gold, silver, platinum and nearly two tons of recently delivered Ron Paul Dollars. 


The agents also took all files, computers, and froze the organization’s bank accounts, according to Von NotHaus. 


Von NotHaus developed the Liberty Dollar in 1998 as an “inflation proof” alternative to the U.S. Dollar, which has drastically devalued since its inception. 


The Muckraker Report contacted the Evansville, IN office of the FBI to confirm the raid.  According to the Evansville FBI field office, the raid occurred yesterday.  The FBI agent in the Evansville office did not provide his name and referred all further questions to FBI Agent Wendy Osborne, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Indianapolis office. 


Wendy Osborne directed the Muckraker Report to Suellen Pierce at the Western District of North Carolina U.S. Attorney’s Office.  Pierce told the Muckraker Report that she had no information about the raid that was ready to be made public.  When told that the Evansville FBI field office confirmed the raid, frustration was detected in Pierce’s voice as she explained that once information is authorized to be released to the public, she would contact the Muckraker Report. 


The Muckraker Report contacted Wendy Osborne a second time in pursuit of confirmation of the Evansville FBI claim that the raid actually took place yesterday – November 14, 2007.  Osborne indicated in the second conversation that no information about the raid has been made available to the public – but that as soon as she is authorized to release information regarding the raid, she would contact the Muckraker Report.
