Moneybooker problem

Well i visited lasseters and saw the moneybookers option as one of the deposit methods and i made an account there and put $50 from my debit card which was a mastercard and now i find out after i finish making the deposit i cannot use the money to gamble if i used my master card.

This really sucks, I'm trying to find out what i can do about this, I do not have a bank account so i cannot have the money sent to a bank, also my card can not be "CREDITED" for any amount unless it is by me.

I also noticed that the "Send Money" option will allow me to send the money to another person that has a valid e-mail address but my question is, How do they recieve the money i send? And also is there any casinos out there that i can just send the money to through an e-mail address?

Well thanks for any help! All help is appreciated.

At least Casino Extreme's Moneybookers deposits have to be sent to their email from Moneybookers site (I think it was moneybookers@casinoextreme.com, but check their website or the cashier inside the software for more info)...And when you send cash to another person's email, it goes thru in seconds...Done that many times...

well , there's only a solution to this .

Send the money to your own e-mail address (Surprisingly it works ~ ) .

As money deposited from your credit card is unapplicable for gaming , you have to do the above to work . Of course , moneybookers are smart enough to take a little bit of transaction fees . This definitely would work as i have used this many times . Provided you are a low depositer , this shouldn't really hurt your bankroll a lot.

Have fun ~

Amazing. What a loophole. I wonder how long it takes for them to block this from happening.

I used to use Moneybookers, but I had some problem with them and their customer support was totally unresponsive. I mean, they didn't respond to any e-mails for two months:mad: As a result, I asked for my account to be terminated completely. They responded after a couple of weeks informing me that my account has been closed and were "sorry" that I felt this way...sheeesh.

------the following is off topic-------

These days I use Neteller exclusively. So far no major problems other than some glitches with deposits resulting in my money being sucked into some wormhole of the Universe. The money's always been recovered though, with 32Red in about 30 mins:thumbsup:, and with Belle Rock in about 5 days.....

I deposit to Neteller by internet banking, takes about 24hrs to show on my Neteller account. I've found I quite like the 24h delay, it makes for less impulsive gambling, helps me to stick to my monthly gambling allocation:thumbsup: And I don't like to gamble with borrowed money so I never use my credit card to fund my gambling.

Neteller do have the ATM card option, I have that now, but I haven't had anything to withdraw so far.....besides I couldn't make out the PIN in the letter they sent me. The print quality was awful..

Cheers,
SM

moneybookers problem:

I have had the same problem in the past...
If you want to avoid the send yourself trick (nice option, I suppose it works if u send directly to yourself instead of a relative for one-time fee-u can have many email addresses registered) one solution is to use the recommended merchants on moneybookers site for other stuff u might be interested but I found out finally that there are casinos that accepted the moneybookers-mastercard money!
All u have to do is try to various casinos. If u pm me I can give u a certain playtech that worked.
I suppose this happens because their financial dpts are labelled with generic terms or they have also other activities.

Its true moneybookers lucks good email support. They have rarely answered my emails. But on the other hand their system worked fine for a long time to me and also they have a lot of financial and fee advantages especially for european players (e.g. withdraw directly to visa cards). I keep on using their services.
