NETELLER has left the building...

The cash hit my bank account today.

I am officially Neteller-free.

First come, first served.

SCOOP! Read it here first!

OK, the long national nightmare is about to end…

No, I’m not talking about the NBA official who watched too many Sopranos episodes and basically threw the results of the last five NBA seasons into speculation.

No, I’m not talking about Barry Bonds being the lead story on ESPN for the last month, despite the fact that he’ll only hold the HR record for about 6-8 more years.

No, I’m not talking about Michael Vick being asked/told to sit out the season ostensibly to get his “personal life” in order, when most of us realize that it’s to let the public furor wane about his dogfighting operation.

No, I’m not talking about Michelle Wie getting yet another undeserved exemption to an LPGA tournament to sell tickets, except now it’s just like Evel Knievel where the spectators are coming to see a spectacular crash and burn.

No, none of these mundane little stories…

Neteller has announced their fund release plan.

Well, maybe not ANNOUNCED it, but they've posted it.

Yes, you heard it here first (or maybe you heard before, but I’ll take credit for bringing it to light)

No need to rush to Neteller. They'll start taking requests for distributions on July 31 and they’ll (hopefully) have enough funds to reimburse all $94M of deposited funds. U.S. depositors will have 180 days (not six months) to put in their request, putting the deadline at January 26, 2008.

Good luck to everyone getting your money back! I have about $400 (small potatoes). I'd be interested to hear how much everyone else has coming to them...
