i done this, then it deleted my bank details

i entered them again, and yet again they were deleted.

then i was prevented access from enetering them on the system

i had them manually entered

then i was prevented access to the withdrawal page

got this sorted. then i had to re-bloody register my account again!!

had it manually added by CS, with IBAN/BIC etc, micro deposit came through, i then entered my 15p,

WAHAY ALL SORTED AT LAST!! screen confirmed it, email confirmed it

i guess the main questions i want answering are

a) has anyone been able to successfully withdraw from neteller in the past few months ?

b) how much protection by the FSA do i have

c)how do i proceed with a claim against them ?

another thing, if neteller are in the do-daa, does anyone think it might worth "parking" your funds with somebody reputable like betfair, so if they do go under, you can get your funds from betfair ?

Incompetence.

This is run of the mill Neteller incompetence.

F*** 'em and request a cheque - should take around three days to reach a UK client. it's 2 instead of 1, but after 3 months of the runaround should at least get this withdrawal out. Then you can tackle to problem with the bank transfer options.

I did the same when they introduced this IBAN crap. It took them nearly TWO WEEKS to actually tell me this was why my withdrawal had simply stalled. A simple piece of info to convey, but in 4 phone calls no-one at Neteller had any clue, and were suggesting all manner of weird reasons for the delay, one was that the workload from PROCESSING US WITHDRAWALS was causing delays - and now we know that was a load of bull as they were processing NO US withdrawals and covering their a***s.

I withdrew all of my funds via my Neteller card the other day - no prob. By the way, they are in the process of introducing a new card to replace the old. You'll be able to use it like a Mastercard with no fee :thumbsup:

I don't know what the problem is with Scrollocks account. If you're still having difficulties, I can have someone check out what's going on.

It does seem slightly annoying in the beginning especially with the introduction of IBAN & IBIC number checks, however once set up, transactions are quite smooth, I have not had any problems in the last couple of months since I provided them with the above numbers.

Hi guys,

anyone of you knows how long a check withdrawl needs (until arrives me)?

Thanks

I have made a few withdrawals recently by check and they arrived in about 3 days.

However I was unable to withdraw in US dollar and I had to settle for their exchange rate in UK Pounds - the robbing baskits.

Unfortunately, my registered account does not seem to have an IBAN, although my others do. I cannot register another account, nor can I amend my current one with these numbers should I find them.

Neteller once suggested I sent them all my banking details by E-mail & THEY would fix it at their end:what:
I don't see how that would be secure:confused: and why they even thought of suggesting this to a customer in the first place given the increasing risk of account "hacking".

have finally got my account sorted and my withdrawal went smoothly.

its seems to be that they have a problem with this iban/bic number on accounts that were already set up before the change

Well, they are in "trouble" now,

Everything has gone offline, even the corporate site. It is not even possible to open the main page to see what the "fault message" says.

I cannot believe that a well run operation would have so many complete outages, as well as all the "scheduled maintenance" outages that are not really "sheduled" but rather "random". But there again, this is Neteller, not your normal "well run operation".

No need to panic, last time this happened they came back the next day, not even so much as a "sorry", but it turned out they had just crashed their servers - there's a cure for this, it's called "capital investment".
