The e-wallet Neteller has been under an attack by hackers recently so if you receive an email, be very cautious about following any of the links.
iGaming.org has reported that a false email has been sent to all of Neteller's customers from the email address of "Netelleer.net." This ruse is informing email recipients that Neteller is shutting down the company on January 31st:.
The E-Mail Message:
"Dear (e-mail registered with Neteller)
This is your last and final warning. To avoid account closure, please follow the link below and confirm your personal information. Failing to do so until the 31th of January, 2014 will be considered a denial of our terms and conditions and your account will be permanently closed."
The image - note the links you want to avoid:
Clicking the "click here" button will take you to a website that asks you to supply your login details — including your credit card information. iGaming reported that there have been "several victims in this case that lost money from their Neteller account, as well as on their personal credit cards."
Skrill recently announced that it would close its doors to Canadian customers. Skrill will no longer serve Canadians after January 31st and it's believed this fake email is pushing Neteller users to the same belief.
iGaming's report states that Neteller has requested to have the false domain "Netelleer.net" deleted.
Optimal Payments, the parent company of Neteller, handles web gambling processing for Caesars Entertainment and 888 Holdings in New Jersey.
