Some good news from Neteller?

As a cardholder of the original NETELLER Card, you will be amongst the first to receive the new Altair Prepaid MasterCard® card, brought to you in partnership with Altair Financial Services.* This new card will replace the original Cirrus network NETELLER Card, which was retired on May 3rd, 2007.

Your new Altair Prepaid MasterCard card will arrive soon

We will start our new Prepaid Card distribution in a few days. You can expect your card to arrive in your mailbox in the coming weeks, followed by a Personal Identification Number (PIN) a few days later. This card will carry the “Altair Financial Services” brand on it as they are our card services partner.

Once you receive your card and PIN, follow the simple activation steps provided in your card envelope. Also, as a valued member, we have pre-loaded your card with £5/€7.50/$10 USD to cover the activation fee.

To learn more about the new Altair Prepaid MasterCard card from Altair Financial Services, including pricing, visit our website.

Should you have any questions or require assistance, please contact our Customer Service Team, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Thank you for choosing NETELLER.

Mine popped through the door last Monday and I activated it Saturday. A lot better than the other load of tripe they sent me as it seems you can actually use this as a proper Mastercard not just an ATM card.

Good news Pud, and glad to hear Neteller have stuck to word this time.

I'm heading back to the UK in a month or so, so look forward to picking it up.
