I saw an ad on yahoo.com under the subject-autos. There was a Honda Civic 2003 for sale by Dan Scott for $2000. He stated that I just needed to send $500 via Western Union Moneygram to MoneyBookers, an escrow company. Upon receipt I was to get the car for a 14 day trial period. I sent the money + $28 fee to their main office in California. They called me about 50 times, wanting additional money. I stated that I wasn't going to send additional money, either to them or the seller. Since this past Thursday, 12/16/10 neither has answered my e-mails, etc. How can I recoup the 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.
On 16 Oct 2010. I used my credit card to make payment to mb moneybooker.com on line. Bank have approve the transation of ERO 10.5, but the moneybooker.com does not approve, so I try again. Same thing happened. So at the end, my bank approve both transation of the total amount of ERO 21. But mb moneybooker.com rejected tiwce! Weeks later I recieved bank statement for the payment, and was shock after clearified with bank.
Using https://www.titanmoneyexpress.com we subscribe a merchant account which approved by moneybookers.com now the account has been stopped. Initially they reviewed that we have some illegitimate products to sell and once we have funds in account they blocked our account saying that we do not allow pharmaceuticals selling.
I want to know y they didnt checked at the time of website review and before giving us the account. How they offers titanmoneyexpress to linked us with moneybookers.
Is this gimmick of selling the accounts, if moneybooker is not awared about this then i request them to closely monitor such things with the vendors like titan express. they took 800$ setup charges and my thousands of funds is blocked now.

What happends with my money?
Yesterday both my moneybookers and neteller accounts were closed. The reason given was that after review my ID documents did not meet the requirements. I had sent them official Belgian ID documents.
After calling both companies all they told me is that the security department made the decision and they can not give me further assistance.
I had both accounts for a few years and had actually never used them. I am not a gambler and not involved in anything illegal.
I have since researched this matter online and have found many people in the same situation. It seems this happens completely at random. I am actually lucky i had no money in the accounts, but other people were not so lucky. After the accounts are closed u get no further assistance and the money in your account is gone.
So be aware of using these companies and do your research before u get involved with them.
Both companies deny they are working together but it really would be a big coincidence. I had not used both accounts for years and now in one day both accounts are closed. Moneybookers had actually allready accepted the documents and then after neteller closed my account decided to do the same.
I actually would like everyone who has a similar story to contact the appropriate government agencies to complain. This has to be stopped!
Moneybookers.com What a shambles. I have never encountered a Company with such a bad Customer Service...
After having an acct. with Moneybookers for about two years with very few transactions but no problems I decided to wire them money to enter into some international business. After wiring the money they credited it to my acct. and when I tried to access the money they locked my acct. stating that someone was trying to access my acct. Obviously that was a lie so I told them fine just send me back my money to my original bank I sent it from as I no longer have any confidence in their practices on keeping my money safe. They told me I needed to send them proof of who I am so I sent them a passport and bank statement showing my current address. They also said I must change my email address in case someone had accessed it so I did. I have requested my money be released immediately but after two weeks of waiting, absolutely no response from them. This is criminal. This company is based out of England and according to their form on the bottom of their login page they are regulated by the FSA which I have written. I see all of these complaints here but I have yet to see one person write back and say it was resolved by Moneybookers, is there anyone that has has my problem and eventually got all their money back?
Hello I have been using moneybookers.com for about 3-4 months for my ebay auctions everything was going fine...
i have an unauthorized charge from these people on my credit card ...i want this fixed asap!!! ive already...
Basically, the scam was fake details of a company called moneybookers (which does exist) which is a company...
While I have had an account with moneybookers.com for quite some time, to receive payments for ebay related sales from international customers i've never had trouble. 3 weeks ago, I attempted to withdraw my money to my verified bank account, as i've done many times before. I got a notice in the website, that they needed a credit card verification too. I added my cc info, and nothing happened. It just asked for verification again. When I first opened this account, I sent my id, my social security card and my home address verification on bills. They have since sent a letter to my house with a code to verify that, and asked me for all those documents two more times. My only assumption for them asking for this sensitive information over and over, is that they are losing it. Creating a serious privacy black hole and endangering me a great deal. Since this problem began, they asked me for all these items, again. I complied, and sent this info via scanned documents into there website. Rnit's been 8 days, and ive still not been contacted and still cannot withdraw my money. It should not take a month, to make a withdraw, period. It's less then 300 dollars, hardly even a sum to be concerned with for this company. However, for the last 3 weeks, moneybookers.com has completely ignored me as I attempt to resolve this crisis. Rnrni had found the service useless for my international customers, but if this is now the way they treat people, with completely incompentance then they need to be dropped from your program.
Be aware that a very simple scam is in operation which is claiming to use the 'escrow' service of...
