FRAUDULENT Skrill email...? 0

Hey folks.... I've seen plenty of various fraudulent emails,...mainly from folks posing to be from PayPal.

They usually use scare tactics, like your account has been hacked and emptied and you must quickly click on the link provided to verify or not that it was you....

Of course,....once you click on,....you're f'd and they get ALL your valuable and private info like passwords and bank accounts etc....

Got an odd one from Skrill,....supposedly,....today...

It's offering me a bonus 100% ***CASHOUT Bonus*** plus 50 free spins at some un-named casino for 'returning to Skrill'.

There's all kinds of links to click on to get to the Bonus,....or Promotions page,....and even a link to answer the question: "Is this email REALLY from Skrill?"

Looks TOTALLY bogus to me....

Has anybody else got one?

I've NEVER left Skrill in the first place,....so be VERY carefull!!!

I usually got plenty affiliate offers, but if they go through skrill, they using skrill header, colours, etc.
And has something like this in the end:

"Skrill Ltd., London, Registered in England and Wales no 4260907. Registered office: Skrill Limited, 25 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5LQ, United Kingdom.
Authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 for the issuing of electronic money.
You are receiving this email because you have subscribed to receive promotional emails from Skrill. To ensure that Skrill emails reach your inbox, please add skrill@news.skrill.com.
If you do not wish to receive any emails from Skrill on upgrades, new features, promotions click here."


If you fear from phising scams, u could try to notify your email provider of these kind of mails (for me in gmail its only one click).
BTW my last mail from skrill has a subject something like this: "the safer way to use your bank account online".

Yep. I got that mail, too. Looks like a quite normal casino promo to me. Even today a 100% sign up bonus is not unusual at an online casino. It's the bonus terms that counts, and the mail says nothing about those.

Same mail received here as well.
Seems to me it's an ordinary promo mail from Skrill and it's not the first promotional one I receive from them.
If you check their website you'll find out they have lots of partnership with gambling-related subject or at least it is what I see when connecting to them from my area( and don't know if their advertising is geo-localized)

It's not offering a 'sign up' bonus'.... It's offering a 100% 'Cashout' bonus...

In other words, either Skrill or the Casino will DOUBLE your money when you.... 'WITHDRAW'

Who pays you double your money to 'LEAVE' and take your money....? lol... Confused

I also have an skrill account for years but i did not recive this email, i guess the safest way is to contact the skrill support and ask them!

They usually answer in one working day on all emails that you send to them Blink Good luck!

Maybe that reffers to the bonus money being cahshable. A lot of bonusses are sticky nowadays, so you can play with the bonus money, but can never cash it out, and lose it, if you make a cashout of your other funds.

lmfao- a cashout bonus Big Smile i like the sound of that, why don't stars offer something similar...i would be cashing out 24/7.
hey dawggy- whenever in doubt, check the senders email- if it's a legit email that is used by Skrill, then it's a legit offer, if you see this email for the 1st time, go to Skrill page and check there (or contact them)

I agree that you must be very careful when you receive these emails, because some of them are too good to be true. I would tread very carefully and whenever you receive one you should come on this forum and ask for advice before proceeding

Did you contact Skrill?

If so, what did they say?

I haven't had this email although I have had loads of similar ones from Skrill although none with a cash-out bonus. Veeeeeery interesting, but shtupid!

Didn't contact Skrill as I have no interest in the offer...

If anyone else wants to, here's Skrills phone number: +44 203 514 5562

PayPal has an email address to forward suspicious emails to, which is: spoof@paypal.com

Skrill doesn't appear to have something similar... Sleepy

Skrill has now their own site but back in the day they had the moneybookers site this option was possible too, a special contact form for scams.

No one from the local forum poker on which i'm active did not recieve this offer so it's a bit fishy...

First time i am hearing about such a bonus Smile
If you are not really sure about it dont use any links.
It only takes a redirection today to get you start running Smile
Make a search over the net and if you dont find anything about it just hit delete.
