link removed[edit]

I have removed the reference to the site
"http://www.nowpublic.com/tech-biz/washington-post-vs-webmoney-transfer Washington Post vs Webmoney Transfer Article by Brian Krebs of Washington Post online draws much criticism" --
This link has apparently been hijacked, and goes to a spoken pop-up engaged in promoting a contest of some sort — Preceding unsigned comment added by DGG (talkcontribs) 00:14, 14 August 2009

== I have added a new criticism object " WebMoney transfer and topup service is not safe they can consider that you broke statements if you send money to other user after top up your purse using bank transfer , then they are not allowned to back money to you. "

Support Group Hello! You have used the service Envoy to top-up your purse. But in violation of an agreement to provide such services, funds transfer was made from the account of Miguel *** ***** but to the purse of Miron *** ***** Support Group Hello! According to our system your payment we received from Portugal. Therefore, we must refund it on the same account, to Portugal. But you have given us your bank account in Spain. We do not have the ability to return this payment on this account.

I don't know about "notable" - this page is important[edit]

I came across this service "in the wild" when someone asked me about in and the article here was very useful. It's certainly a "notable" topic as far as I'm concerned, and seems quite popular in Eastern Europe. Yet there is a banner on the top of the page about "not meeting notability guidelines" and possible imminent deletion/merging/redirection. The English of the article is woeful; the information a bit dodgy in places, and it's basically not one of the best articles on Wikipedia. But as to the notability criteria, "...received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject", people are clearly using this system - they're independent and reliable. It exists. People use it. It's significant. It's notable! [IP-edit 13. Dezember 2014, 19:52]

German Wikipedia does not mention it by now, therefore I'm glad to find some information about it here. It is certainly notable. Aliexpress includes WebMoney as alternative source. Manorainjan (talk) 21:45, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

"Online Pharmacy" scam link[edit]

There is a link to a likely spam site in the text "One example being Online Pharmacy transactions". "Web of trust" says that is a scam. I don't know how to check what the previous content was, so I'm asking that someone with better wiki-fu should remove that link. Sam Watkins (talk) 14:37, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Sam Watkins. I've removed that link as Wikipedia doesn't want external links in the body of the article (per WP:EL). Stesmo (talk) 16:58, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

"It doesn't accept Western Union or Paypal transfers. There are some third parties offering such services for commission fees" - this point is false (or maybe not actual) – here is the link to the system’s official exchange service with sections for exchange of WM to Paypal and to money transfer systems (including Western Union) - https://wmeng.exchanger.ru/asp/wmlist.asp

"The routine need to use third parties for many operations with WebMoney raises the question of trust and the possibility of fraud." - this is someone’s personal opinion not corroborated by any source. Request for citation dated November 2010!
