Skrill Phishing Email

Skrill Phishing Email

Please be aware that currently a new form of Skrill Phishing Emails are spreading around the internet.

The new Skrill scam email looks very similar to normal emails sent by Skrill support to make customers click a malicious link and the enter their account information.

These emails are even addressed with the correct name and email address of Skrill’s customers.

The email is sent from “support@Skrll.com” with the subject “Important: Dispute #SK-2849126”, faking a support incident. The phishers claim the account is closed and that the account data must be confirmed.

Please do NOT to click ANY link if you receive any kind of these emails, even if you are adressed personally.

In general, never click on links in emails to log in at either Skrill or NETELLER – use a bookmark in your browser or type the address in manually.

For further information and how to reach Skrill about the issue, please make sure to visit their official website regarding Skrill Scam issues:

NETELLER down after DDos attack

As NETELLER announced through its Twitter channel two days ago, the website and payment gateways were under a DDos (Denial-of-service) attack, where a website service can be attacked through mass external communication requests, causing unavailability of the website and it’s connected services.

The NETELLER MasterCard system was also affected. Cash withdrawals at the ATMs with the NETELLER Net+ Card was therefor not available.

The problems continued yesterday and we hope the sites will be accessible next days over the Easter Holidays without any ongoing issues.
As of now, the systems and the website are back up and running.

Enable 2-step authentication for maximum security

Even though accounts were not accessed, it’s a good idea to use all available security features that NETELLER offers. Please enable NETELLER two-step authentication in your accounts.

NETELLER down again?

Please try to access your NETELLER account through member.NETELLER.com if you encounter any problems within the next days.
The sub-domain was not affected by the attack so far and is expected to be reachable all the time.

We will also keep you informed about the problems at our Twitter channel.
