Extremely doubtful.

Edit to mean doubtful that was how a virus could have been planted on your computer.

I would think you would be impressed with their quick security, and would be more likely to stay with them as a result of their protective and speedy action on your behalf.

When I read the OP, I thought, cool, those dorks at Neteller rock. They're able to protect me even if I do really dumb stuff and get my passwords stolen!

Perhaps OP has another reason to be scared of opening another Neteller acct?

duder, this sucks. i am going to buy roboform after reading this. while i am not glad this happened to you of course, it is eye opening and hopefully will show others that net security is a serious issue.

i thanked the security profusely.

how am i not supposed to feel uncomfrtable after this happened so easily? the reason the account was put on hold was because they purchased money with stolen credit cards from an unfamiliar ip. had i had a lot of cash laying around they easily could have made purchases from random internet merchants without neteller noticing immediately.

I [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] Roboform. Been using it for about 4-5 years after some user at where I worked was using gator (which is/was spyware). Everyone who I turned on loves it. Whats nice is you can grab the file too and say you wanted to use it at work or anotehr laptop you can too, firggn rocks. Get the pro version, integrates well with Firefox and IE.

To Add the Pass2go device looks pretty sick too...

from what i have read, neteller is really good with noticing when somebody other than the account holder is attemting to make transactions. i would just get a new account with them, make sure that virus is off your computer and invest in roboform. what else can you do?
