Re: ukash

If you have to ask, then you haven't used it. Its a method of transferring money.

Re: ukash

I think there was an item on this on Rip Off Britain recently. If I recall correctly, some people had been conned into make payments to fraudsters and had no way of getting their money back. The advice was to bear in mind that paying by Ukash is like paying in cash - once the payment is made you've got no recompense. But if you're paying someone who is genuine it was considered to be safe.

These days I'm always on the lookout for ways to avoid transfering money so I can actualy keep some for a change.
