New NETELLER Verification Rules

New NETELLER Verification Rules for Existing Clients

We were just informed by NETELLER that they have changed their verification process again. A few weeks ago, NETELLER already made some changes to their verification process for their new customers.

Now, existing customers will also have to go through an additional step to not risk any restrictions or limitations. The following article will give you a detailed overview about the changes and what you have to do to fully verify your account.

New NETELLER Verification Rules – What exactly is changing?

New NETELLER Verification

New NETELLER customers already needed to send an additional document to verify their account. Besides a passport/ID card and a recent address verification they also had to send a selfie of their face holding their passport next to it. NETELLER will now ask their existing customers for this selfie as well. That means, even if you have a fully functional and verified account now, you will still need to provide the selfie to avoid restrictions for your account.

To verify your account, NETELLER also offers a webcam verification, but to make it as easy as possible for our clients you can just send the seflie to us and we will take care of the rest. Your account will be fully verified within 1 business day. Just send the selfie to docs@ewallet-optimizer.com and add your 12-digit NETELLER account ID in the subject line.

New NETELLER Verification Rules – What do I have to do now?

New NETELLER VerificationNETELLER will ask all customers for the selfie, but not all at the same time. The process started today and step-by-step all customers will receive a notifaction to verify their account with this extra step. Please make sure that all details are clear and legible and please also wait to send the selfie until you receive a notification from NETELLER.

All customers need to complete the additional step by 28th September and if no action is taken NETELLER will freeze your account. Therefore we recommend to already prepare your selfie to be ready and avoid any delay.

If you want to fully verify your account right away, please send the selfie to docs@eWallet-Optimizer.com together with your 12 digit NETELLER Account ID number and we will take care of the rest!

What about Skrill?

Currently there are no changes for existing Skrill customers yet. However, we are sure that Skrill will also change their policy at some point. We will let you know as soon as we have any further information about this.

The alternative – ecoPayz

New Skrill Verification

New Skrill Verification – New Procedure

New Skrill VerificationWe were just informed by Skrill that they have changed their verification process for new customers as well. A few weeks ago NETELLER already made some changes to their verification process and they also told us that Skrill will most likely follow at some point. The following article will give you a detailed overview about the changes and what you have to do to fully verify your account.

Currently the following changes will only affect new Skrill customers. Existing Skrill customers are not affected and they don’t have to provide any additional documents.

New Skrill Verification – What exactly changed?

From now on new Skrill customers have to go through a different process to fully verify their Skrill account.

The following steps are needed to remove all restrictions and increase your transfer limits to the maximum:

    1. New Skrill VerificationRegister your Skrill account with eWO to get a faster upgrade to bronze and silver VIP and to enjoy our monthly bonuses.
    2. Send an email to skrill-docs@eWallet-Optimizer.com and attach the front and back side of your ID card or passport and a recent utility bill (gas, electricity or any other household bill) or a bank statement, showing your full name and address and not older than 90 days and a selfie of you holding your passport or ID card next to your face.

Skrill will now review your documents and verify your account within 1 business day.

Without this additional step to send a selfie you can use your Skrill account, but you will have many restrictions and low transfer limits.
Therefore we highly recommend to fully verify your accounts to be able to use all of Skrill services and get the most out or your account and also the most out of our Skrill bonus program.

You can also use the Skrill Mobile App to upload your documents and verify your account.

New Skrill Verification – What about existing clients?

If you already have a fully verified your account there is nothing for you to do at this moment and you can use your account without any additional verification. We also don’t expect any changes for existing clients in the future.

The alternative – ecoPayz

Skrill Scam and Phishing Pages

Skrill Scam Pages – What are they?

Skrill ScamWe recently detected a few new Skrill Scam (Phishing) pages and have decided to give you some more information about this topic and how to protect yourself.

Phishing is a form of fraud in which the criminals try to get sensitive information such as login credentials or account information from you. They set up a fake web site that mimics the real Skrill page to trick you into disclosing your account details. Once you have provided those information they can use your details to empty your account.

Skrill Scam Pages – How can I protect myself?

Phishers are becoming better each day which makes it harder for normal users to detect if you are on a real site, but there are some hints that can help you distinguish a real website from a phishing site:

  • Skrill ScamIncorrect name or other details: Most of the time the web address of a Skrill phishing site looks correct but actually contains some common misspellings.
  • Secure Site: A legitimate Skrill page address starts with “https://” ― the letter “s” must be included. http://” at the start of the address might be an indicator that something is wrong here.
  • Direct Pop-Ups: Be careful if you are sent to a website that immediately displays a pop-up window asking you to enter your account details. Phishing scams may direct you to a legitimate website and then use a pop-up to gain your account information.
  • Use an up-to-date Web browser with antiphishing plugins. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Chrome do have free add-ons (or “plug-ins”) that can help you detect phishing sites.
  • Never click on Links from Emails. Instead, use a bookmark in your browser that 100% leads to the right website. This is also better than typing in the address manually, because Phishers are known to use similiar names that could be typos to lead you to a phishing site.

Skrill Phishing Site (Click to enlarge)

In this example, it is clear that this is a phishing site as the domain should be https://Skrill.com. However, if you don’t feel comfortable or find anything suspicious, please don’t use the website and contact us or Skrill directly. We will then check the page and make sure they will be removed in case it is a phishing site.

Skrill Scam Pages – General Security Advice

Skrill ScamHaving installed the latest operating system and updates for your web browsers, anti-virus protection and apps are one the most important things you can do to increase your overall security. Don’t open any email attachment from unknown senders and consider using different email addresses for your accounts. This makes it harder for attackers to get access to all your accounts with hacking just one mail account.

You should also be careful with links you received through Skype (or any other messenger), Facebook or any other social media channel.

Skrill also offers an in-house security feature. The Two-Step Authentication (also known as “2FA”), adds an extra layer of security through “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also a unique code that changes every 30 seconds and will be provided through an app on your mobile phone. Using this feature will drastically increase your account security and makes it really hard for any criminal to gain access to your account.

Skrill Scam Pages – Is Skrill Scam?

By doing some research on the web you will find comments about the reliability of Skrill, people who claim that Skrill took their money or closed their accounts. Some of those complaints come from customers who tried to abuse bonus offers, created fake accounts or used their account for illegal transactions or who cannot verify their account. Besides that, Skrill is a company with over 40 million account holders with a complex product and high verification standards, thus naturally there are always people suffering from bad support or technical failures. We constantly fight against this and make sure our customers get the support they deserve.

With us, you know you will be a true VIP customer and that your issues will be solved and that you can safely use your Skrill Account.
