The chances of returning back is very slim.

In another news, there are reports of LibertyReserve hacking
This hacking wasn’t any ordinary hacking according to the news source, they report around 150 million dollars of digital e-currency was hacked / stolen out of LibertyReserve.
The Liberty Reserve site is still offline. If this is true, this will surely send chills through the spine of several millions innocent LibertyReserve users, who have few thousand Dollars stored in their LR account, which probably, will never be back again.
