Romania, is one of the better known banks around here, but i guess they could be scummy as well. Thanks for the tip, i will try another bank and see how it goes.

In your case I would switch from USD to Euro since Romania will also join at some point and you won't have to worry about FX fees any more. Also using Skrill's MasterCard reduces the need for bank withdrawals.

A card for a VIP account owner is free of charges. There are fx fees when you buy something not in the home currency.
It is a great tool.

How much does it cost for you to withdraw money from your skrill usd to your bank account?  I currently use bank of montreal.  Also how much does it cost to send a wire frm your bank to skrill?  I did a 4900 wire usd from bmo bank to skrill usd and was charged 25 dollars from my bank.  However when the money got to skrill it was only 4860 instead of 4675.  I asked bmo and they said its not them and skrill wasn't sure but i think thats a 15 dollar intermediary fee from skrill?

when i withdraw money from skrill to my bank account , skrill does not charge anything since i am VIP (for non-vips it's something like 1.8 EUR)  , my bank charges me 7 EUR.
When i upload money from my bank to skrill , skrill does not charge anything , my bank charges me something like 20-25 EUR.

I have some questions about Skrill and I appreciate any kind of answer.
I got limited with my ID at every possible bookmaker. Now I have friends ID and bank account. Is it allowed to make more MB accounts from same IP? Do I have to change IP/browser? Should I withdraw money from my MB account to my bank account and then send it to friends bank account or just send from my MB to his MB?

Myself i have not faced problems regarding multiple MB accounts used by same IP.There is no problem transferring money from your MB account to your friend's MB account , but there are some bookies around which might ask Skrill if there is any relation between those MB accounts and then bookies might catch you.

Moneybookers vs Netteller vs Entropay

Thu Nov 21, 2013 3:55 pm

In the moment in my country-Bulgaria, the gambling law has forbidden the using of almost every average to good bookmaker. They are blocking the access to them, but this is not the problem. So far they are not going after the bettors, but after some kind of EU directive no country can block the access of another country to the products of EU licensed company(I hope my English is not that bad) the access will be granted again.
There is project of the government for a six moths gratis period from 01.2014 – 06.2014, in which the bookmakers will can apply for license to operate with Bulgarian customers. Still I am not very sure that the government will not go after players, because the model with the restriction is not working properly. It is obviously that the bank transfer is not an option, so the E-wallets remain an option. I have Moneybookers account and Netteller account.

Here are my questions:

1. Due the anti money laundering policy of Moneybookers, it is possible they to granted access to the authorities if they were asked, with the motivation to caught people, which are transferring money to and from bookies in the black list?
2. I think this is unlikely, but still possible. Than I focus on using Netteller, due the fact they are registered in USA(I think), but I spotted they have a branch in Bulgaria and that again make me thought that they can unravel some info, if they are pushed by the authorities. So my next choice is Entropay, because it is not used that much, due his enormous fees. Which is the better choice in order to keep my anonymously – Netteller or Entropay?

Thank you in advance!

I am thinking of moving out from Skrill with all my accounts. Their fees are hurting my profits...
Not all my accounts are vip, and for same thing I used to pay up to 0,5e, now I pay up to 10eur. Thats 2000% increase, while service is the same.
I hate when companies get greedy like that...

Leaked emails and court documents showing they willfully hand over personal details to their buddies in security departments at at least six bookmakers I know of and now this new transaction fee?
They have obviously forgotten just how valuable arbers are.
A leaked email was published here as well a while ago, but court documents? Six bookmakers? Can you please share more info about that? It's really interesting

I need help with the following issue  below. 
What other method should I use?

Thanks in advance.

Dear
