    Dear Mr.XXXXXXX,

    Thank you for your email. We have taken a look at your account in regards to the situation.

    You may withdraw via cheque or memberwire to your Bank Account.

    NETELLER will be offering a New Pre Paid Card for our members which will be available at the end of May 2007.

    Depositing to Neteller becomes easier I guess. They should have
    managed solving withdrawal problems :(

    I haven't been able to extract any further information on this pre-paid card and what players will be able to do with it.

    Neteller's PR is surely one of the worst out there, and it costs them business I believe.

    Here we (apparently) have a solution to the card problem they have handed to their customers, their Support seem to have been briefed sparingly on it....but they have not issued an communication on it telling players what's happening.

    It's just unbelievable.

    This could be good... the only major disadvantage I can see is the cost of an ATM withdrawal going up to 2 pounds... every other fee went down or became free, multiple currencies supported meaning no more foreign exchange fees, and withdrawal and balance limits significantly higher to 10,000 pounds.

    I gotta say I am looking forward to this - a very positive move on Neteller's part, and quick given the short time frames.

    Another plus is that NT seems to have finessed this through Mastercard, which is quite an achievement given current circumstances.

    Another PR snafu was that some US customers reported receiving this announcement as well, according to posts at the Neteller Customer Coalition. For people waiting patiently for any news on their frozen funds, this did not go over well.

    It occurs to me that the people who received this announcement went to sign up for Neteller news updates - so they would naturally have gotten this announcement. I don't think this was sent out to accountholders - certainly I did not get one relating to my account.

    I can't believe these people. They're still holding millions of $'s of USA customer's money, but they have time and resources to implement new products? What do you want to bet they're using ill-gotten USA customer's money to fund these new ventures?

    Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yep, it's confirmed. I spoke with the Neteller rep here at the CAC Amsterdam, and they will be coming out with a new card that will be used like a Mastercard. There also won't be any fees involved. :D

    Just curious, how can people still frequent NT after what they've done to customers in the USA? They're holding millions and have no intention of paying up.

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn't get the announcement either, and I was wondering why other US customers did. If people can easily opt out of updates, then it's not as big of a deal.

    Off at a tangent for a moment, sdaddy - any idea of what the membership numbers at NCC look like nowadays? I haven't seen anything from them in a while.

    ^There are currently 757 members with a total of over $4 million in frozen funds.

    FYI, June 4th is the deadline for Neteller to announce its plan to pay US customers.

    Update

    SIXTH TIME LUCKY FOR NETELLER DUO?

    Arrested in January, and five continuances later Lawrence and Lefebvre remain untried

    May 16 was the last date set for a hearing into charges related to online gambling lodged against Neteller founders Stephen Lawrence and John Lefebvre by the US Department of Justice, yet in the fifth continuance to date yesterday (Wednesday) the two men were told the matter had again been postponed - although for only two weeks rather than the now usual one month.

    Out on $5 million bail and confined to the United States, the issue must be wearing for Lefebvre and Lawrence, respectable Canadian businessmen who had to undergo the indignity of being arrested by the FBI and detained before the massive bail bond was set back in January this year.

    The arrests resulted in the Isle of Man-based and London listed e-wallet they founded withdrawing from the US, freezing US player accounts and monies and conducting a series of negotiations of unknown content with the feds.

    A month back, Neteller said that agreement had been reached on paying the US player account balances, but that this could take some time. Since then there has been little in the way of overt movement or communication from the company.

    No news yet. I think they're only going to start shipping them either this week or next week. They were probably waiting for the cards to get made.

    I can't wait to use my gambling winnings to pay for gas and groceries.
