They also switched from not allowing withdrawals to a bank account in some countries, to not allowing people in those countries to get any incoming payments at all. This prevents you from spending or withdrawing the money abroad.
They did this with no notice - the first I knew of it was when a $700 refund I was due (outside their system) got returned to the sender. The result is that an year or so later I still have not got the money. (and the person who owes it to me cannot use Moneybookers because he is in the US).
As you are allowed to make payments from those countries the effect of the rules is to make small imports easier than small exports. Very clever.
