Do you have to use your real name on Skrill?


Skrill is regulated with Top Level regulatory authorities, FCA, and according to their regulations and to prevent anti-money laundering, the user must use their official name instead of using any surname or anything that does not prove the user identity.

To complete the registration process, the user must have submitted their identity documents for profile verification. Otherwise, skrill does not allow anyone to use their services.

For example, if you use a fake name to register an account then you will not be verified your account as you unable to submit an official document based on your fake name. We recommend all, if you want to use your skrill account then please register under your official name otherwise you will be in trouble. For information can be found at the official website –
