    Looks I'm not the only one who received this email from Skrill:

    Albeit several details on your account have been verified, we can see that full merchant account verification is still pending.

    We are not in a position to offer services to unverified merchant accounts and as a result your account needs to be terminated. We would kindly ask you to withdraw any remaining balance as the change will take place 30 days following this notification (on 21st January 2020).

    We also got this and I queried it directly with the merchant review team member who verified our account. They said the notification was sent by mistake, its not phishing but looks like they might have sent these out to accounts that are verified.

    Update on this: despite being told verbally by our account manager that there was nothing to worry about, we've had confirmed in writing that that's not the case and the account will be being closed on the 22nd:

    With regards to your inquiry we would like to confirm that this email is correct. Unfortunately, we are not able to verify the business details anymore.

    Please note that if you register for a new business account now, it will be fully verified, and such issues will be avoided.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Should you require further assistance or in case further queries arise, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    I heard some really speculative rumours about Skrill and I am aware I am making them bigger with this post. I sincerely hope I am wrong, although the company does not deserve to survive, but many people would lose a lot of money.

    Anyways based on the rumours if you have money at Skrill/Neteller get it out now. (I am really sorry upfront if it is a false alarm. Anyways they have to have 100% reserves...)

    I think they cannot go bankrupt as they make so much money on FX conversions, it should be insane what they earn...

    But spooky that they remove 2FA with Google Authenticator without telling the users (at least I didn't get an email).

    Anyway, I withdrew my funds

    It isn't really spooky when you consider that the only reason Skrill introduced 2FA in the first place in 2016 was that they were hacked en masse. They also admitted to being hacked first in 2010 but have still not disclosed or admitted to the 2016 hack. Their track record for account security is abysmal.

    Fortunately I cut ties with this sham of an organisation a few years ago. I feel sorry for anyone with money tied up there, whether they go down in flames or not.

    Why Paysafe Group hasn't been busted by the British police is beyond me. Their business ethics are like 1xbet, but regulated in the UK. The type of fraud they get away with under the guise of government oversight baffles me.

    A class-action lawsuit is what is required by the thousands of people it's stolen from over the years. This is apart from the massive money-laundering type setup they have going on, that has been pushed under the carpet for way longer than its natural life.

    Recently, they bought out their way into positive-ratings territory on Trustpilot, a site that hosted insurmountable number of fraud complaints, and almost all of them were removed overnight.

    The fact, I couldn't care less about their money laundering endeavors, because I got different belief of what ML is, or isn't, which is just a word used by the governments to stomp on people, who don't agree with their extortion regimes, or stupid laws on drugs and gambling, or prostitution.

    My main beef with them is that they steal. Plain and simple.

    To me drug dealers are better, at least they provide a product, which you pay for.

    Thievery - unless it's a loaf of bread - is the highest form of scumbaggery. That sh*t is bottom of the barrel.

    If you had followed Sherlock's advice blind on this forum then you'd now be unbelievably rich. He might be right and he might be wrong, but he is always worth listening to.

    Thank you for compliment. All I can say is that this info is from defacto scammer (guy I know maybe for 10 years), who was writing this on closed forum honestly and who had multi-identity business with someone who probably bribed employee from Skrill. He suggested that Corona ****** up everything and Skrill must close accts to fill their pockets.

    So the problem: it is info from one source and it is info from scammers, where the problem is that the more one is cheating others the more is generally unreliable as source of info, because any info is with high probably some other manipulation. So those are the two grains of salt. It depends how big problem is to take money down from Skrill and how much everyone has there, whether to withdraw or not.

    So thanks again that you give me credit, but do not give too much credit to this particular info just because I am the messenger. This is actually why I was reluctant to post anything. If it was a honest company I would say nothing, but Skrill deserve run on bank even if they are accidentally innocent.

    Well, you motivated me to get my money that's been stuck in there for a couple years now, out. We'll see if they send it to my new residence or give me **** about it (I expect the later).

    Either way you can move on.
    I have the same problem at various digital accounts as well. Simply money stuck somewhere, waiting for problematic KYC. Regardless of amount, it is stuck in my head like something I have to do before I will get my well deserved sleep, but I am still unable to resolve or write-off those annoying things. So somewhere I have money that I do not have.

    So true. I have probably a dozen poker sites with money on them that aren't used and maybe havent even been logged into in a year or more.

    Maybe it's time to clean out the accounts and some brain space.

    You know, people have approximately 50,000 thoughts per day. How many have I wasted on these nagging accounts? How many have we all? Bah!

    Skrill have for sure no money problems. Why should they? The corona situation changes nothing for them and even help them to make more money because more transactions from casino and poker players as before.

    Do not worry about Skrill, even with cutting wages near to 20 %, they will survive

    Many people use them nowadays.

    For sure Corona is not bringing Skrill money as it is not helping gambling overall across all niches. I also think if Skrill is in big troubles they should be bailed out by someone, because even their database is very valuable.

    Do not forget that companies could have any income and any revenue, but they were always able to keep burning it for the kickbacks of managers. Even relatively small changes in revenue can be fatal for those who are overleveraged.
