Hello Friends I was just checking my mail and got the mail from the Moneybookers saying that every users have to verify their account by clicking here(given link on button: http://user-skrill.com/validate/ (not referral link)), otherwise their account will be temporary frozen for unknown period !!! Now what is this? Another fishing attempt or the real thing. For the more info, i tried to login into my account using the normal URL. and I didn't find any info regarding this. Is there any MB/Skrill user here got the same message. Is this for real or just fake one?

I believe the Moneybooker mail you received is a scam. I have a Moneybookers account but it seems that it has never sent me anything yet. Besides, I remember it is complicated to get your Moneybookers account verified. So be sure they will not send you an email to ask you to verify your account. It is up to you whether you want your account verified or not. I just find it troublesome so that I still leave it alone.

I received such an e-mail yesterday and filled the form without a second thought. Now what I have to do. I don't have any funds in that account and I am not using the account for a long time.So I thought that the site may be reminding me about my inactivity.

I have a moneybooker account but never get that email. Couple days ago, I got an email like this but from Payza. I never check it, cause my Payza already approved. If you are a Payza member, do you get the same email like me from Payza? Cause I only read the title and never try to open it.

Hi Yes I am member of Payza too, but nope never got such mail.. I think all are these just phishing attempts, better stay caution and delete such mails. Thanks for the info about payza, I will be careful on that.

I too have a moneybookers or skrill account, but i never recieved that type of emails from them. And the notable thing is the email not came from moneybookers or skrill main domain site. So, i think it is a fake mail and don't respond to it. Anyway contact moneybookers directly through their website and report them about the phising occured to you.
