    Credit Card problem with Moneybookers

    I made several deposits of $200 on my canadian ********** (through moneybookers) a few weeks ago and everything went smoothly.

    I then deposited around 2000 onto my credit card so I wouldnt get chaged with a "cash equivalent fee". But now when I try to deposit it keeps failing. I was trying to deposit 1000, then tried 900, then tried 1200. All 3 failed and then moneybookers said no credit card transactions could be performed on my account for the next 24 hours.

    Anyone know whats going on?

    Did you contact moneybookers about this issue yet. If so what did they have to say?

    Moneybookers has 90 day limits for uploading via credit card, maybe you have exceeded your allowable credit card upload limit.

    If you're blocked out for security reaasons it will likely correct itself before you receive any response from moneybookers customer service.

    On a related note:

    Once you have used moneybookers to deposit to a book you can easily use another method to fund a sportsbook and later withdraw via moneybookers.

    For example, I ** $1200 to TheGreek and win $1000, I've previously used moneybookers to deposit, Greek will allow me to withdraw via moneybookers, so I withdraw my Greek balance of $2200 back to moneybookers, now I can fund my Matchbook, Pinnacle and Canbet accounts for $500 each with the funds in my moneybookers balance.

    This works at many A & B books.

    It saves me from doing wires from my bank, I'd prefer going to a ** or ** location and having the funds delivered in 15 minutes instead of 3-5 days and later withdrawing via moneybookers.

    Moneybookers is good, but moneybookers in tandem with other funding methods is even better.

    I guess it depends on whose card you use.

    I use a CIBC **** card AND/OR a PC Financial ********** to fund my moneybookers account with no problems.

    Just to follow up:

    I have a PC ********** and I called the security department and they cleared everything up.

    They just found my transactions to be "suspiscious" and required me to call in.
