I noticed the Skrill logo on the MB page but didn't know what it was about. I received an mail today that Moneybookers is rebranding to Skrill.

Why are we changing?

Because Skrill is built around liberating and simplifying the previously complex process of payments and works better globally. You can find out more about the story of Skrill at our website

Hopefully they'll make some changes to their customer service as well.

And why does their new name remind me of whales?

I think its a pretty weird name also. Moneybookers is way more better, but i suppose they know what they are doing ;)

It's one of those words that just sounds like it means something distasteful and nasty.

YES!!!! Thank you!! That was driving me nuts...krill is what blue whales eat, that's why I kept getting the association with whales.

Whew...now I can sleep. :)

Skrill is either the alien race in flash gordon or another old sf-comic (its all a bit blurry in my mind) or they are the evil creatures in the famous puppet movie "the Dark Crystal"

Pretty useless info but thats what i do!
:D
