NETELLER Warns Of Phishing Scam
By Staff
Online payment processor NETELLER has issued a warning to customers regarding a new spate of criminal phishers using its name and logo.

The Isle of Man-based firm stated that many of its customers had received an e-mail from ‘communications@NETELLER’ advising them that the e-processor intended to re-introduce IP tracking from March 31.

“This is a security measure to ensure the location of your login matches the country of residence registered with your NETELLER account,” reads the bogus e-mail.

The communication then goes on to request that account holders planning an overseas trip away from their home nation register with NETELLER by clicking on a link. This is ostensibly to obtain permission to operate their accounts while away from home as the e-mail claims that if this is not done any foreign transactions will be refused.

The link leads to a web page where users are asked to enter their account numbers, names and details, a move that could leave them open to abuse resulting in a loss of funds.

Although the e-mail resembles NETELLER's new corporate image, the firm stated that it is fake and advised account holders not to respond. The e-mail should, instead, be forwarded to ‘’ for further investigation.
