Skrill Neteller will send an SMS to this number for further verification. Make sure your phone details are the same as the phone you have at hand.
You can make a deposit from an account in your name (bank account, debit or credit card, ewallet).
According to Skrill’s Terms and Conditions, “You may only add Payment Methods to your Skrill Account if you are the named holder of the account for that Payment Method. We take any violation of this requirement very seriously and will treat any attempt to add a Payment Method of which you are not the named holder as a fraudulent act.”
Skrill and Neteller are sanctioning violations of terms and conditions with fees ranging from 10 USD/EUR to 150 USD/EUR.
Skrill and Neteller offer two levels of verification. You can verify your ewallet account with your Facebook profile, which will allow you to send and receive a limited amount of funds to friends and family, buy crypto, and make smaller deposits. However, you won’t be able to receive substantial funds or make larger payments.
