Ukash is a UK-based money system that allows paying customers to exchange their currency for an online code. That online code can then be used to purchase anything on the internet. The codes are sent out to people around the world by ATMs.Each Ukash user gets a 19-digit code that serves as a form of prepaid funds. If a customer purchased an item that was less than what the code contained a new code would then be given to that customer. It is just like receiving change at the store, except it is all done virtually.Ukash was created in 2005. Several years after the company was born, in 2013, Ukash helped launch AvoidOnlineScams.net. This website had one goal; to teach people how to detect money scams.A year later the company created a Ukash Travel Money Prepaid MasterCard that could be filled with money anytime during travels. It could be reloaded with American dollars or euros. Then it can be spent at any place that accepts MasterCard.April 2015 Ukash merged with Skill Group. The Ukash Travel Money Prepaid MasterCard was no longer valid. It was replaced with Skill Group's payment system. Ukash cards could be used up until October of 2015. Any remaining funds not used would be transferred to pay safe cards.For a short period, there were some hackers and cases of money fraud related to Ukash. There would be people that would claim they are selling an unused 19-digit code or loan in exchange and charge a fee. There were also other cases of people tricking people into opening viruses.
