Absolute Poker steals $1700 of my money?

I know I'm new and that means I'm probably a scammer and so forth, but I figured I'd post my story here to see if anyone can help me. I already sent an email to the Kahnawake Gaming Commission but I highly doubt that will do anything.

I deposited $1700 USD to Absolute Poker about a month ago and played a few hundred hands there, and attempted to transfer to a friend. After doing so, they cancelled the transfer and closed my account and requested documents to prove my identity. I sent them in and Adrian from the security team said my account would be unlocked within 2 days. They didn't do it, and 2 weeks later I called them and Adrian said that my account would likely stay closed. I submitted documents (again, they lost them the first time) and I got an email that said my account would remain closed. I said that's fine, but I want the $1700 refunded to my Click2Pay account.

I have not heard back from them, and I think they intend to steal my $1700 for no reason.

I understand they want to close my account for "security reasons" and I guess that's fine; I don't want to play there anymore anyway (the games suck and the customer service is quite clearly terrible), but stealing my $1700 on top of that? Ridiculous.

I'm not getting this. How can you understand that they closed your account? Only way I would understand a casino/poker closing my account was if I done something that breaches the t/c of the site.

I'm not saying this is the case, but I think it's strange you accept it so easy that they close your account.

About the 1700, I think if you are legit and there were no strange things happening with your account/play. They should refund it..

It sure looks like you are.

The next day AP refunded your money...

After your complaints.... Bullshit.

Your money was coming anyway, AP caught you doing something, closed your account (and your friends) and sent you your money the very NEXT DAY.

I call this a "trash AP thread" that has no basis in reality...
