Skrill Complaints & Reviews

Skrillmoneybookers - credit card charge.

I was checking my bank account and noticed a charge from moneyBooker, London for $41.06. I have no idea what it is for. I haven't ordered anything or authorized any transactions for anything. There was no phone number next to the charge like there usually is so I looked online try to find a way to contact them. When I go to there website it brings me to a site called skill. I can not find any contact information for them but I have seen a ton of complaints of this same thing happening to other people. I'm going to contact my bank but I wanted to find a way to contact them directly.

    1. Declaration, authorizing Skrill to manually change your primary email address. For example:

    "I, the undersigned, [your first name last name], confirm that I authorize skrill.com to change primary e-mail address to [the new email address]”

    • a colour copy (scan or a camera image) of both sides of a valid official identification document (your ID card or driving licence), or the personal pages of your current passport
    • a copy of a document verifying your name and address. This should be a document that confirms your name and address, issued in the past three months. A utility bill or bank statement, for example".

          I have created 1 case 35 days ago and called them 10+ times regarding an issue. But that issue still not solve. They are hanging my 300$ for more than 40 days. They asked me 5+ times for same docs and every time I had to send them file. When I was send them file and ask them when this issue will be solved then told me they are revewing and will let me know. After a week they don't have any update and after calling them again, they want my file again and said they are reviewing. They kill time and make hesitation to customer. Always they hang customer money for long time. I want to make an appeal about moneybookers services to international court.

            Skrill.comwithdrawal

            I am part of a company that does mystery shopping and my payment goes to Skrill (no choice unfortunately.) In the past, I was able to get my money transferred to my bank account without much issues. For my recent payment, I have raised multiple tickets in order to resolve whatever issue they think there is (I'm getting a rejection on withdrawal no matter what I used, whether bank transfer, debit card etc). I also called their support team and followed the instructions to the letter such as registering a new email address, changing my password, sending them an email from the new email address etc. Until now, I am still unable to make a withdrawal. I've tried to send an email to the person who handled my complaint but nothing, no response at all.

                Moneybookersorder never came but my account has been charged

                I ordered Nokia silicone case cover . My account was charged right away and I received one of those automatic response that my account has been charged. I never received the order. Kept emailing them but no response received at all either. This is completely scam. The Item will come from hong kong and there was like an Asian name who apparently will shipped the item. He also used the company money bookers to charged the account which has an address here in New York. All these are scam. There is only one thing it does very good.
                RIP YOU OFF. How do these kind of scam be caught and learn their lesson good?

                  Moneybookers.coma bureaucratic nightmare

                  I have been trying to open an account with them and after 6 weeks, they are still pondering the risk of doing business with me. In the meantime, it took me 5 days to open an account with 2co. This company is run like the worst public service you can think of. Slow customer service. Takes them 2-3 days to respond to any inquiry, they keep on adding requests, the process to be a merchant is not clear and they drag it on and on. Probably a good partner if your idea of banking is a Swiss bank but not really a business partner.
                  I wish there would have been a clear procedure on their websites on how to proceed to open an merchant account with them and I wouldn't have bothered.
                  They tempt you in offering the security of a British regulated bank and you get a 19th century bureaucracy.

                      Do not use moneybookers (skrill) if you are in the US. They are completely inept and will close your account if any of your customers have used a gambling site - even once. Which will happen at some point guaranteed. So essentially US citizens cannot use moneybookers for any reason whatasoever. Yes that is right... if you get money from a person that at some point (even just once) visited a poker website you will lose your account. They have an abusrd and incorrect interpretation of US law.

                      So based on that I would avoid like the plague. They are a nightmare. Even with paypal's issues Paypal is 1000 times better.

I am in the software industry. lol. Well, they verified my company a few times before and all was OK. Now, I found this to be outrageous and i asked them to explain their actions. They refused. patronizing me and my partners with such a rudeness... I guess you're right, these idiots are simply not worth dealign with.

                      Moneybookersdon't go anywhere near skrill - moneybookers

                      I had an account with them but recently when I transferred some money to my account in order to transfer to a third party. I can't see the money in my account even after 4 days so I called their expensive 0870 no in order to realise that my account is locked and they need a utility bill to prove my address so I gave them but after that they asked me the COLOURED copy of PASSPORT to unlock my account. I declined to give coloured copy of my passport so they said they cannot unlock my account.
                      Finally I have to give them the coloured copy of the bank statement from where I send money to them in order to return the money to my bank. I closed my account after they returned money to my account. It took a month and so many expensive calls and email to get money back. They made it as difficult as possible to withdraw money from the account
                      In the days of identity theft is so common; they need coloured copies of key identity document and utility bills for unlocking my account. They didn't ask these document when you open the account but will ask once your money with them.
                      We all are aware of hacking of well known companies and their customer details in public domain in the past so what is guarantee for our documents? Forget the hackers; their scrupulous staff may misuse the details
                      Customer support is arrogant, expensive and useless. If you going to use them be prepared to hand over your coloured identity documents

                        I really need help, I have won some money on Vernons, I was delighted. When I tried to withdraw I was informed the money couldn't go back onto my debit card!!! So I had to use moneybookers. I then had to use them to deposit so I had to put money in the account which I didn't want to do. In fairness to Vernons t hey said I could get the money back without having to play it through. I won 75 pounds. So then I went to moneybookers and tried so desperately to put the money back on my card through them. Could I?? Could I hell, unless I open up a visa or moneybookers card as my maestro isn't allowed I had to get the money through a cheque. I did that I ended up after payment of fees etc. putting 50 pounds for my cheque. I checked on website it says it's been processed. NO SIGN OF CHECK 2 weeks Later. I've complained and had NO WORD AT ALL FROM MONEY BOOKERS. I hate t hese people I've been forced to use their services when I didn't want to, or bullied into having a visa or mastercard which again I don't want. I want my 50 pounds back. Please help

                            Moneybookers (or Skrill) is just a trap..

                            To open an account and / or put money, it's sooo easy, come on!

                            When it comes to withdrawal, they are not happy anymore, they say :
                            Oh no!!! you became a bad boy NOW so, for security reasons (that we forgot to take into account when you came and put your money in our deep dark hole) your account is locked (maybe sucked?), and to unlock it you need to provide us a colored scan of your YESTERDAY'S SPOONS (and maybe eggs too?), hopefully you didn't anticipate that, so they keep the jackpot in your account.

                            And when you try to contact them: by email, you get copy-paste or automatic / robot response, or by phone ( after : if you are happy press 1, if you give up press 2...) you get a novice that says : I don't know - I will tell our security department about your case !

                            Their SUCKIRITY department is just a bogus excuse to hide them selves and do what they want quietly.
                            Anyway, their new name will not help to make up their image, Skrill in icelandic means mob, rabble, rout ! Fair choice !!!
                            They are just MONEYSUKERS (or SUCKRILL).

                                I agree with you. I'm just been a victim. My account was blocked and the account of a other person too. For which reason, mystery.
                                Its impossible to get an answer. But they just replied and show their rules : "They can blocked account without notification".
                                Because I just saw there are mistake in some transactions, so I notified them and ask them to cancelled them. few hours after, the 2 accounts were blocked with all our money and why ? Impossible to no. Their system made a mistake and transferred the money to the wrong person; its enough to closed 2 accounts ? When there are any mistake, we should said nothing ?

                                They repeat and repeat: : because of security, they closed our account and can't do anything for reimbursement. That's a ###ing team. Don't care about their customer, they scam and stole our money. They abuse us with their rules. But as they don't explain or give any explanation; we customers can do anything; just send mails and send again...but in final, we receive always the same answer.

I DID NOT authorize this charge and have talked to my bank to dispute it. They have started the process of investigating this charge. I was told by my bank that it was made at 7:03 p.m pacific time on 1/28/2012. I was on my phone between 7 pm and 8:30 pm central time with a relative of mine. Once again, I DID NOT AUTHORIZE THIS CHARGE!!!

                                  Same here- except the charge for me was $52.00 on Jan 30th. I called bank to dispute, but the money is still pending and was taken out as a hold. Had card cancelled. Hope it doesn't happen again I need ALL of my money!
