e-Gold Update

As many of you are aware, e-gold was indicted by the US Department of Justice. While e-gold has denied these criminal charges, due to the nature of the allegations we are unwilling to require the use of e-gold until their legal problems have been resolved. On Friday, June 8th we released our final payment thru e-gold. Going forward, we will instead use the services of Moneybookers. The people who chose not to receive earnings thru e-gold and instead had myLot hold their earnings, are now able to open up an account with Moneybookers. On or about June 20th, we will release payments to all users who have updated their payment information with their Moneybookers’ email address. This payment will be for unpaid accumulated earnings as of May 31st. We are providing you with a couple extra days because the process to verify your account with banking and address information may take anywhere from 3 to 12 days. Verification is not required for us to send funds to you, but may be required for you to withdraw funds. Finally, all those who received earnings from e-gold in the past will need to open a Moneybookers account. We suggest you open the account as soon as possible and begin the verification process if necessary. Should you have any questions on Moneybookers, we’d like to direct you to their FAQs at http://www.moneybookers.com/app/faq.pl .

moneybookers is a reputable company based in UK. i have been using moneybookers for 6 months now, and i must say it's better than paypal. no fees to receive and send money. it is much like paypal, very reliable. i know of writers from the philippines who prefer using moneybookers as it is easier to use. there are also merchants who can does virtual currency exchanges, just look around for a reputable one. Moneybookers fees: BANK TRANSFER: $2.40 CHECK: $3 yes, they can send a check directly to your home if you are not old enough to have a bank account yet. you just need to verify all the information, like your address or your bank account.

I already opened moneybooker account and tested add my local bank account on there.. Successfull!! in add bank account but don't know if there is problem when withdrawing money. navigation is easy and understanding on moneybooker website. Again the problem make me not very like moneybooker is their fees to HIGH if we just withdraw $10 into our bank account maybe we only get around $4 - $5 after cutting for moneybooker fees and local bank teller fees... any suggestion?

I'm glad to know that you have found a new payment option for a member like me who found out paypal not available for our country to receive payments. I've been waiting for this that long but I guess the long wait is over, lol! I registered a new account from Moneybookers this afternoon. I just have to open a bank account for transfer of payments. Hopefully it would work out well to all of us. Thank you so much MyLot!

jencai, we are certain people in the Phillipines can withdraw funds to their bank accounts. We also undertand that moneybookers is not as easy to use as e-gold, but it will work if you open the account and follow their instructions about adding your bank account information. You may need to confirm your identity as well and that process could take up to 12 days. They will send a letter in the mail to the address you set up. The letter will have a code on it and you will then log back into moneybookers and put the code.

Everyone must remember that they MUST provide a valid name, address, birth date and banking information or they will have trouble withdrawing from moneybookers. In my opinion, moneybookers is much more secure, but still just as reliable as e-gold.

I havent received any payment from egold.That month i was so excited cause I reached the $10,I was supposed to receive my first earnings when that egold problem occurs.It was so frustrating on my part.The time mylot gave me an alert about this, I wasnt able to inform them to hold my earning due to hectic sched here at work. So does it mean that my efforts was wasted and my earning will return back to zero?Is there any other way to save my previous earnings? Or can I still get my previous earnings using that moneybookers? Mylot please help me.....thanks

Earnings for the month of May was sent to e-gold. Anyway if your earnings was not sent to e-gold, it is still with mylot and they will send that to moneybookers if you have already created your account there and accordingly informed mylot of your email address in moneybookers for that's all that mylot requires. Your earnings are not lost but do the appropriate action that you should do to get your earnings.

hello there!. well i am very disappointed that such thing could ever occur to e-gold. i never thought that it would happen because i thnk that e-gold is excellent and i havent got any problems with it. anyways as i can i see, i have no choice but to get a moneybookers account. i am quite new and i dont really know if this thing works here in the philippines and i am just crossing my fingers right now and hoping that whatever i have earned here in mylot can be withdrawn through moneybookers. and i also hope that they would not charge so much. anyways goodluck to us and i really hope that e-gold could get through this mess and will be enabled once again here in mylot. Goodluck to us all!.

Hi there Mylot, i am still devastated on what E-gold did to me. i have lost more than $10 before, and that was my 1st earnings here in Mylot. Whap happened was, when i am processing to sell my gold to PGX of egold i think, and then for some reason they just took my money and i never had that amount in my bank account. I can't forget what egold have done to me, and i will never use that never! I am happy with the service now of moneybookers, it's really easy and they are really reliable. Thank you mylot for making your site so helpful with us here to earn extra good money. I LOVE YOU MYLOT! Ciao, Kiko
