    Hi.
    Let's say I have a skrill account with my own card attached. Skrill account isn't in my name but the card has my name (I am not in the US/CA so no AVS/name verification).
    Now I want to receive an amount of 200-300 USD from some one I know only in internet for the service I offer. Now comes the question, we all know about potential chargeback scam, so if that client does a chargeback after some time and he gets refunded by his bank, what shall Skrill do?
    Will they assign me a negative balance (that would be a bad fortune but I won't care much about it) or they will try and get money out of my card?

    The thing is I've never ran into anything like that and I don't see any sign that the person I am dealing with wants to do anything like that, but I always avoided reversible payment systems. Skrill, as I know, may be reversed if its customer got hacked, but I wonder will they run any
    further action against me

    I would at any time remove my card and use for instant a EntroPay card there then make the transaction, if you don't get any chargebacks your fine if you do they can't charge the card attached to the account ;)

    Are you sure that Entropay allows 3rd party loading and you can withdraw your balnce to your credit/debit card? I never heard of it so am asking.
