I requested a debit card last week before all this BS started. I received it today. I have so much respect for Neteller, so I promptly cut it up and flushed it down the toilet. I had closed my account yesterday, so it wasn't good anyways.

Fitting! :lolup:


edit: Damn, I should have made a video and posted it on youtube.

Oh well :)

What BS? I use neteller all the time. Are their problems with neteller?

As long as you don't live in the USA...no. At least not for now.

Yes

Their problem is in the way Neteller mishandled the withdrawal from the market. Telling customers one day that they could still use Neteller, just not Instadebit any more, and the next just locking down everything without further warning, ensuring that loads of US players had money stuck irretrievably in transit due to the simultaneous shut down of "reverse gear" preventing even retrieval of deposits made on the Monday. They are now saying this was all so well planned that it will take 6 WEEKS for moneys in Neteller to be sent back to players, and if any money was sent out of Neteller on the Monday, Neteller refuse to help by accepting it back, telling players it is up to them to sort it out themselves.
If they had told players in October that they were definately planning a withdrawal when the 270 days consultation was up, they could have had time to look around at other options, perhaps signing up at other eWallets.

We now have the same fiasco at Click2Pay - chaos, but no information from the top as to what is going on, so players fear the door has already been locked and bolted, but can't find anyone prepared to say whether it is or it isn't.
Neteller had the cheek to tell US players they could still use Neteller for non-gaming related transactions. Naturally, players can't find any as it is Neteller policy to refuse merchant accounts to anyone not in the gaming industry - as was shown by a reply to a merchant who wanted to use Neteller to sell things over the internet as many people seemed to have Neteller accounts because they gambled online. I can't remember the details, but it was posted here a while back.

All Mastercards will do this, as Mastercard decided to apply US laws to ALL holders wherever they live in the world. VISA have left it up to issuing banks what they do, but cards issued by banks from the US do not allow any gambling transactions, even for UK players where it is legal, and soon to be very legal indeed come September. Many of the rest will allow it, but will make you feel a bit "naughty" about it by making gambling live in a special transaction category all on it's own, stripped of any cardholder benefits, but not having a fixed transaction fee attached, so not quite as "naughty" as just drawing cash from the ATM with your credit card to play the Fruit Machines:D
