Moneybookers Ltd. / scammers, use 'verficiation' to make money
When opening an account with moneybookers, it is usual to have a verified account. I had my account verified via postal verificiation.
When today I tried to make a withdrawal, I was given a message that "My verificiation with a 3rd party verification company failed"
Upon calling support, they said that bank verification is necessary for up to 1000Euro. I didn't reach that amount yet and was told to:
1) EITHER PAY A CERTAIN AMOUNT TO LIFT THE RESTRICTION
2) SEND A SCREENSHOT OF MY BANK WITH PREVIOUS TRANSACTIONS.
What's alarming is the way these professional scammers have built their business model and even worse, these alerts happen ONLY when you make a withdrawal and not when the account is dormant.
So, the meaning of this story is.. if you are in a hurry to withdraw funds (which is always the case) Moneybookers has some issue or the other in order to make you pay more.
