The complaint has been investigated and resolved to the customer’s satisfaction.

Skrill - Crypto wallet disabled access till end of 2021 !

Skrill, is not safe service. They just disabled crypto withdrawal till 30.12 so you don't have access to your money. So if your crypto val. went up in last few days you are not able to transfer it to FIAT currency and block your profit neither withdraw the crypto to another wallet.
Scammy service. It is hard to believe how this can be even legal.

Kind Regards

Desired outcome: financial compensation to cover potential lost, min 50% of wallet fund value

Skrill - They closed my account and trapped my account when i complained

I opened a skrill account, made a deposit and submitted my documents for verification. They rejected my documents and told me to upload alternatives to which i responded that i do not have any other. All those this time my account was restricted and my money trapped

I wrote them telling them to refund my money and close my account since i am not allowed to do business with them.

They blocked my account and when as far as blocking my ip address.

The email i have with them is [protected]

This is wicked. A very wicked act

Desired outcome: I would like my funds to be returned

Skrill - Account Restricted after Funded

I sent two large payments to people and it took the money out of my bank account but the restricted my account so i had to send a copy of my Credit Card Statement, My ID, and a picture of me holding my ID. It has been 6 hours and I have gotten nothing from CS or anyone else. Can't cancel the transfers, and can't get my money back for several days I am told.

Skrill - Skrill — Skrill has stolen my money

When I registered my skrill account, I provided all the information required by the website and passed the comprehensive verification of skrill! It has been in normal use for several months, but I have successfully logged in to skrill since August 16, 2020. Except for some technical problems, I will not be able to log in to my personal account again until January 8, 2021. But I didn't receive any reason. This indicates that the account is limited. I need to contact customer service! I contacted skrill company as required and provided Ecuador's personal ID card, front and back, photos of personal handheld ID card and electricity bill! But when you get an answer, you have to ask for a bank statement! But I can't provide it because of my personal reasons! Because there is too much money in my bank, I can't repay it! Therefore, the bank restricts me from using all the business of the bank!
I sent a support request to skrill asking how to remove restrictions on my account. I received this reply in a short time (attached is a screenshot):
Dear: leysi Marilin Ramos Hoyos
Thank you for contacting the skrill help team.
We hereby inform you that we have decided to terminate our business relationship with you in accordance with skrill's terms and conditions.
Please note that our decision is final and irreversible.
Thanks for your understanding.
Best regards,
Scream help group
I'm trying to access my skrill account now, but I can't sign in anymore with the error "your account has been permanently closed". But I still have more than 3400 dollars in my personal account! However, I was unable to obtain these funds for transfer or recovery, and since the above reply, skril did not respond to my subsequent attempts to contact them.
I don't think I violated their terms and conditions - skrill didn't provide any evidence. My skrill account has passed all the verification required by their company. They accepted my previous deposits and transfers and transferred them to work websites and individuals. In addition, they now have funds that I can't use and charge me for their unfinished services.

Desired outcome: I hope I can open my skrill account again and let me transfer my legal funds!

He is a big scammer be aware this kind of man

Skrill - Customer support.

It's taken almost a week for them to resolve this issue with my account and still not done yet I was asked to upload documents for verification which I did and they keep getting rejected but it clearly shows my driver's license identification, bank transactions, credit card verification and current address verification I'm so frustrated with their poor service.

Desired outcome: Issue resolved promptly, toll free number to call, message serviceis garbage.

Skrill - Skrill has stolen my money

I have been using Skrill since March this year and have sent a small transfer (around $100) once a month. Other than a few technical issues, I've had not problems making these payments until last month. Last month, when I tried to make a transfer, Skrill temporarily restricted my account, asking for further information to confirm my identity. I immediately provided this information including copies of my Australian Government-issued ID. Skrill then unrestricted my account, send me an email my account was verified and allowed me to make the transfer.

Today, I deposited $100 USD into my account in order to make a transfer. Skrill allowed me to make this deposit and charged me a fee of $2.50 USD for the deposit. I immediately attempted to send the same amount to the same person to whom I've sent a number of successful payments through Skrill in the past, but I was unable to make the transfer and Skrill notified me that my account had been temporarily restricted, without giving any reason.

I sent a support request to Skrill asking how I could un-restrict my account, and I received this response within a short period of time (attached as screenshot):

Dear Lisa Marlin,
Thank you for contacting the Skrill Help Team.

We would like to inform you that we have made the decision to discontinue our business relationship with you under the Skrill Terms and Conditions.

Please be advised that our decision is final and irreversible.

Your understanding is appreciated.

Best regards,
Skrill Help Team

I have now attempted to access my Skrill account but I am no longer able to log in and am given the error "your account has been permanently closed." My bank account has been charged for both the $100 and $2.50 USD but I cannot access these funds to either transfer or recover them, nor has Skrill responded to my subsequent attempts to contact them since the above response.

I do not believe that I have violated their terms and conditions - Skrill has not provided any evidence of this, and they accepted my previous deposits and transfers of the same nature and to the same person. Furthermore, they now have possession of my funds which I cannot access, as well as charging me a fee for service which they didn't complete.

Desired outcome: Money and fees back

Skrill - Payment Declined (to IC Markets)

On the 10th of August 2021 at 8.35 hrs GMT, I received payment from another skrill account by name 'Grace Olajumoke Ojuolape' the sum of 22.33 USD as shown in the attached screen shot tagged "A" below.

On the 10th of August, 2021, few hours after the deposit, I tried depositing fund (15 USD) into my IC Markets account via Skrill and it was declined for the following reasons:
1. That I don't have enough money in my balance.
2. That my balance is 0.00 USD.
3. That my available balance excludes 22.33 USD reason being that the amount was deposited via a Mastercard, which can't be used to make payment online. Attached is the screenshot of this tagged "B" below.

I contacted Skrill the same day (10th August) filing in for 'Payment Failure' stating my ordeal clearly but received a VAGUE response. Screenshot "C" is attached. I filed another complaint the next day (11th of August) requesting why my fund was excluded from the available balance the response was that I used Mastercard in depositing WHICH ISN'T SO as the mode was stated in the first paragraph. Screenshot "D" is attached. They requested that I close the case of which I declined and to my surprise, the case has been closed in less than the speculated 24 hours grace. Screenshop "E" attached.

I have retried to fund my IC Markets account again, even with a lesser amount but the same result still.

Desired outcome: I would love that Skrill give clear details why my deposit from another skrill customer is tagged as 'Mastercard deposit' and also reverse such if she is in the wrong; thereafter allowing me to make my payment free of hitch.

Skrill - A very daunting process of trying to release my money

I won some money while under a different email address than I have now the reason was because I got a new computer and it said to update my email to which I did. When I won the money I had to deal with skrill because j p c uses others to pay people out there winnings.. I thought it was going to be a problem cause of that and it has been. My money was paid to moneybookers 2234 [protected] on the 26.4.2021. I live in the bush where my reception is not that great the signal is in and out I use tethering by phone. All I want is my money refunded to which I have won fair and square.

skrill is a cheater company and cheat many of peoples, , on daily basis


Skrill - Security

I sent them a bank statement in which my full name is written clearly and in bold and they keep rejecting it saying that it is not issued in my name that is regestered in skrill account. I called them and showed one of them where my name is stated clearly and in bold . He told me that the problem will be soon treated since he saw my name written correctly. After one day they sent me an email rejecting the document again. I wrote them an email and attached the document in it pointing to my name. After about an hour, they answered with an email saying that the case has been escalated and will take a few days. I am working and really need my skrill . They keep disabling my account for something that can be done in seconds. This is total irresponsibility
My email: [protected]

Desired outcome: Accepting my document because it is valid. Hence enabling my skrill account
