|Over 250 frustrated NETeller customers, who have received no information on the state of funds they placed with the third payment processor, have joined forces to form the NETeller Customer Coalition.|
The group has been promoted to action by NETeller's decision to deny US customers access to their funds and the long wait to find out whether or not the Department of Justice will proceed with the case against NETeller's two founders.
'We understand that the government is at fault here too', adds the Coalition’s founder Eric Goldstein. 'But people are tired of NETeller's do-nothing/say-nothing attitude and they're not going to just sit back and take it.'
The Coalition, which started in late February, has seen a surge in members with an average of 30-40 new members signing up daily, and is appealing for the release of a total of over $750,000 in frozen funds.
The NETeller Customer Coalition offers a venting ground for affected NETeller customers as well empowering them to fight their own battles with links to dozens of resources – everything from Department of Justice press releases to YouTube videos, alongside uploaded PDF documents detailing the FBI's sealed complaint.
Neteller founders Stephen Lawrence and John Lefebvre were arrested in January on a charge of conspiracy to transfer funds with the intent to promote illegal gambling.
