Well, that just defies logic!
Unless the UK banks are now cautious about Neteller, they should actual be extra special with the clientle they can help
For some mysterious reasons Hungarian residents were never allowed to open a Neteller account. Neteller never provided a clear answer why. Strange thing is, now I wouldn't open an account even if I could. Buddy denotes different persons from Hungary below.

Roberto: Welcome to our live chat service. How may we help you?
Buddy: Hello, my question is: I'd like to open a Neteller Account. Sometimes I live in Denmark, sometimes I stay in Hungary. I read in terms and conditions that you don't accept Hungary. Does it mean that if I opened an account in Denmark, I wouldn't use it in Hungary?
Roberto: That would be correct
Buddy: I don't understand you exactly.
Roberto: You would only be able to use it in Denmark
Buddy: And what would happen when I stay in Hungary and I tried to use, for example to pay on the Internet?
Roberto: If you were to try to access the account it would get closed and you would have to call in
Buddy: And after phoning would I be able to use it in Hungary?
Roberto: You would have to be in Denmark
Buddy: So, it is no way to use it from Hungary? Why is it so important that where am I at the moment when I use internet?
Buddy: I could do the same things in Denmark and in Hungary.
Roberto: It is for security reasons
Buddy: ? How do you mean it?
Roberto: At the current moment we don't offer our service there. So your account would be closed
Buddy: But I really don't understand the situation: I'm sitting in front of my computer in Denmark and I can pay by Neteller, one day later I' sitting in front ofmy computer again, want to pay again, THE SAME PERSON WITH THE SAME CARD,and you would close my account. Is it logical?
Roberto: If you wish you can email [email protected] and then will be able to answer your questions better
Buddy: okay, I will try to do that.
Roberto: Thanks you
Buddy: Do you have any information about when will Neteller accept Hungary?
Roberto: Again you could send a email to that same address and they will be able to answer that
Buddy: Okay, thank you for your helping.

Chat Information You are now chatting with 'John'
John: Welcome to our live chat service. How may we help you?
Buddy: Hi! I'd like to open an account, but i cant find my country(Hungary) in the country list.
Buddy: Could you help me?
John: Unfortunately NETELLER does not offer service in your current residence.
Buddy: why not?
John: Due to lack of Internet security.
Buddy: And is it likely that Neteller will offer service here in the near future?
John: Unfortunately I do not have the answer to that question.
I am not seeing any problem with the chats below.
They do not want Hungarian citizens. Period.
And they repeat it again and again.
Also, They do not want "Denmark" citizens signing in from Hungary. Too easy to guess why.
Now I can see why you're 'annoyed'!I am a UK citizen but have dropped Neteller. They suddenly started declining transfers from my credit card. When asking why, they said they want me to send a copy through the post as to ensure it is not a US credit card.
Hello?....they have done transactions on it before, they have a phone in front of them, they have a Bank to talk to...and anyone with some motivation can work out the origin of a card.
Closed my account as I cannot work with people who waste my time.
They still owe me several pounds that they said they would refund.
