To be fair, I can't say I've had any problems with MB. Always pay out timely, usually anything between 1 tot 4 days for me, which is fair! I'm sorry to hear you guys having trouble with them, but it's not all doom and gloom, for the people trying to find info about MB.

I never had problems with MB before.
The longest it took was 3 days and at normal day, it could be in 1 day.
I couldn't figure out why it takes more than 2 weeks or more.
Could it be wrong information given ??

Default I agree...

I am new to moneybookers...today i tried to make withdrawal to my bank account and got the following message:

"Unfortunately we were unable to verify the data in your profile with an independent information source. Under UK anti-money laundering regulations we are therefore required to obtain an additional proof of identity before we can process your first redemption request."

When i clicked to verify bank account i got the following message:

"In order to verify your bank account, you need to request a bank transfer withdrawal with an amount less than USD 20.00. We will then make a payment for this amount to your bank account and include a unique verification code in its reference field. This is the code which you will have to enter after you receive the payment.

The verification procedure should be completed within 3 banking days. As soon as you enter the verification code successfully in the field below, your member status will be upgraded to 'verified'. You will then be able to request withdrawals from your account freely."

So i tried to withdraw an amount smaller than $20USD, but same thing happens again. How do I make this small withdrawal to confirm my bank account? I email moneybookers and they havent responded to me in over a week. I also sent a 2nd email and no response!

If someone know how to handle this please let me know. Thanks.


i emailthem over 5 times and still no reply....the international customer service phone number is blocked for north amreican callers. their uk number is out of service!!!!

are they scamming

Hahe, just follow and withdraw a smaller amount. Once you receive your funds, you will be advised of the Authorisation Code. Than go back to Moneybookers, do another withdrawal and once prompted to key in your Authorisation Code, just key in what you were advised from by Bank pertaining to your withdrawal which is usually around EUR15.

Than only can subject account be verified as yours.

FYI, my Authorisation Code look like this:-

VRF CODE XXXXXX MONEYBOOKERS

Emailing them is useless. I emailed them and never receive any reply. Finally, got Gamebookers.com to ask them to reply.

What I know is that you need to make a deposit from your bank in order to verify your identity.
I was asked to do so in order to raise my transaction limit.

Your case is rather odd. I had only one of such roblem and after that, I just waited for my bank to advise me of the details. Once I receive that, I tried to withdraw a bigger amount and again, I am asked for the same method of withdrawal ie a smaller. However, if I am not mistaken, there is an option while performing your second transaction allowing you to key in the authorisation code.

Perhaps you may have overlooked that point.

No one seems to have their numbers. When it is withdrawal related matters, I think they do not reply your emails or take their time to. Like I said, I got them to reply through Gamebookers, cos I sent an email to Gamebookers complaining about them. Gamebookers replied me and assured me that they have done their best to reply me. That was how I got my reply.

i guess they are trying to earn interest from the money. imagine if they have 10000 customers with winning money of just 1000. how much they earn on interest!
not mentioned the many that have between 100-900

Guys do you have any experience with Moneybookers regarding this matter - I wanted to upload my funds at MB but unfortunately provided a bad reference number, simply I did not put the right ID number in the reference line. Its already a week ago and nothing is happening. I sent four e-mails to MBs regarding this mistake and adking what to do and if I have any real chance to get my money back, but got no answer at all What should I do???

Maybe sportsbookreview can help you with that. www.sportsbookreview.com is the address to that site. Independent viewer of bookmakers and I guess that they can give you advice from their experience with Moneybookers. That is what I would do at least.

their email service can be slow at times, but try to give them a call. I wonder how the limit can be only 1000 a month? i've 21000 for 90 days. I've never had any problems with MB and done about hundred transactions from and to my account.

I have the same situation as you betmania, but there's a solution. MB says:

Quote:
Option 1: Identity verification by credit/debit card upload!

# Duration: instantly
# Outgoing transaction limit/last 90 days increase: 3000 EUR
# Make an instant credit card deposit of a random amount between EUR 1.01 and EUR 2.99 to instantly increase your limit. For security reasons we will, however, not add this amount to your account balance until you have verified your payment card for future deposits to your Moneybookers account by checking your card statement for the exact transaction amount and entering it into the 'verify credit card' section of your Moneybookers profile.



AND/OR


Option 2: Identity verification by verifying your bank account

# Duration: 2-3 days
# Outgoing transaction limit/last 90 days increase: 5000 EUR
# Simply upload funds to your Moneybookers account from a bank account held in your name and we will credit this amount to your user balance and increase your transaction limits. You can transfer any amount of your choice (Recommended minimum: EUR 5).

i opened my moneybookers account 2 years ago and verified with bank account. They send something like 0.4***8364; to my account with verification code in the message part of the banktransfer. They might have changed their rules. And i also think once you've used mb for a while they will rise the limits. I have 21000/90 days now.

No, I've had the MB-account for a couple of years, just used it once before, but now with the winnings from the casinos I'll "have" to use it.
I know about the Solo-payment and have Nordea as my bank.

Hello,

I am from Romania and one year ago I used Moneybookes to trasfer money to my bank account. It worked fine but took about 2 weeks.

I have also uploaded funds to my Moneybookers account 2 months ago and it also took 2 weeks.

MIRACLES DO HAPPENNED

after so many e-mails send to moneybookers they finally responded
take a look at this ....a very long one too.....


Thank you for contacting us.
We have noticed that you have requested a withdrawal on 01.11.2005.
The funds are now sent to your bank account. Once you receive the
money to your bank account you will be able to find the verification
code in the reference of the payment. Please note that the
verification code comes in the reference field right after 'VER code'
and is exactly 6-digit alpha-numeric sequence. As banks tend to use
machine processing of payments, it is possible that the reference
gets torn or other details are merged into the code. So please do
copy only the 6 digits after 'VER code', with no spaces, and enter
this sequence in the field specified on our page. The verification
will increase your transaction limits and enable you to withdraw
funds to your bank account.
If however you are still unable to find the verification code please
be kindly asked to send us a copy of the statement showing the
transaction from moneybookers and we will verify the account manually.
Please feel free to contact us anytime you have some questions or
concerns regarding our services. We will be glad to assist you.

Kindest regards,
The moneybookers.com team
