A couple of weeks have gone by since I have had troubles with Full Tilt’s bounced checks, etc. Since then I have gotten my wire transfer as well as another one that took less than 48 hours to hit my account. I have also gotten a lot of email and comments from fellow poker players who have had the same problems I did, and then never gotten their money at all.
I was thinking that when the wire transfers worked FT’s problems were behind them, but maybe not since I have been hearing horror stories from so many other players. I wonder if it doesn’t have something to do with what state you live in? Perhaps different states are enacting different banking laws that are making it difficult for Full Tilt to wire money. I would not be surprised if that was the case and will endeavor to look into this matter and find out where the problem lies.
I am certainly not impressed with the way FT has communicated during these problems with player’s cash outs, but may I remind everyone that the problem lies within the Bush era laws and the US government for not totally legalizing and regulating online poker. These problems would cease to exist if not for the government making it hard on banks to transfer monies that have to do with online gaming.
Let this be a lesson to all of us poker players and get online and support the PPA, the only group that is working to fix this crap!
