just recieved my cashout from bovada/bodog casino was supposed to be a cashiers check but my bank tells me its not and
they have to send it off for collections at which time the bank where the check came from will send me a real cashiers check so i can deposit
it ...this in unacceptable i had called bovada in advance of recieveing my check as i have read many post in other forums of them issuing bad /fake
checks ..i have contacted them and a request is being sent to there payout dept. to stop payment of the (fake)check and re issue the funds in another form of payment and this will cost me 40.00 of my winnings for doing this ...i dont know whats going on with them but this aint right and
i will wait the 24 hours they gave me to get back with me on resolving this ..but i guess will have to wait and see ..just for fyi i tried cashing
this canadian check at many check cashing places as well they would have got 10% of my 3000.00 but even they would not touch it as there isnt even a phone number to the issuing bank on the check for them to call and verify anything ...so will keep posted ....ty:confused:

update

ok so i tell bovada of the problem how the check cant be cashed as it is NOT a cashiers check and just as i thought this is there response
Dear Mr. Shoemake,

Thanks for contacting Bovada Customer Service.



We understand that you are unable to provide us with a copy of the check for $3000.19 with stamp reasoning on it. Please be advised that in order for us to verify if we can reissue a new check to you, we need the copy of the check with the reason why it is being rejected.



Also, you may try en-cashing it at any check cashing stations as it will be treated just like a local state check.



Our Customer Service Team is available at [email protected] 24/7 to help if you need anything else.

Thanks,

Bovada Customer Service
now the reason why this is there response is if you go and google bovada bad checks? youll find many post of people who cash out and recieve
bad checks at first then once waiting 4 to 6 weeks for bank to stamp there check as bad they contact bovada and wolla a good check is sent whis has no problems being cashed ..kinda funny how what your option is if the check is deemed bad and marked by bank is to cancell your payment thus being charged 40 dollars to do so ...really sorry that this what i get told by what is suppose to be a very well known and accredited casino

Does Bovada have a rep here? If so, contact them with your problem. If not, check into doing a PAB here if possible.

Casinos know what a pain in the a$$ it is to cash checks in the US. So it is their responsibility to make sure that there are no questions regarding checks, in my opinion.

This seems just a tad bit sketchy.. I'm confused.
i had account with bodog for long time but had account closed then later when became bovada i started playing again won cashed out ...now they see where i requested my account closed back when they was bodog and so they locked me out thus i cant stop payment on check now as the money will just go to a locked account so as there advise im going to continue to try and get my check cashed ...sorry i didnt leave enough details before

I'm sorry I'm a tad confused. It's not resolved if you can't get your money or check cashed.

Do you not have a checking account at a bank you can deposit it to? You would then need to wait till it clears (possibly weeks) before risking using the money.

I've had smaller banks tell me the same thing when I received Canadian checks from (Bodog at the time) Morris Mohawk. It only took a couple of weeks.

For what it's worth, BOA took the check deposit no prob.

Slight derail, Bovada, concerning payout time, Your Payout Reference Number is 3-----7. Your payout will be reviewed in the next 48 hrs. All payouts are reviewed in the order in which they are received. Please review the messages in your bovada.lv account for any updates relating to your payout request. Sincerely, bovada.lv Payouts Team

Up until very recently the review took only 24 hours. C'mon, baby!

i have recieved a couple of checks from bovada and a small issue but nothing major. get a international debit or cc and go to you bank and talk to them that you do business overseas and you will be recieving checks from your profits. tell them that you trade online.or just spend that extra 50.00 and have it wired. its really no loss to you. but all in all my checks went through. ive cashed out a 2700.00 and a 200.00 so its all good!

well my bank had said

they would have to basically send the check back to canada and then the bank in canada would then issue a new cashiers check
that would then be mailed to me by snail mail ...then i could take that check to the bank and then they would cash or deposit it
said would take 6 weeks to complete... so i had my step dad put it in his account and they just took it right away guess has to do with standings and how long your account has been open maybe not sure.

Related to the banking side of this matter...

Took a large-ish cashier check (from a customer's bank in another state) to the bank to deposit for work. I was given a rather complicated song and dance about when the money would be available and why. (Our company has been doing business there for over 30 years.) So anyway... even though it was a cashiers check, and as contractors a large-ish check is not out of the norm, a percentage was going to be 'released' after (I forget exactly) something like 2 or 3 days. Then the remainder would be available in about 10 - 15 days.... I was even given print outs telling when and what and how much ....

Banking is really getting to be a pain in the ass. It has begun to feel like money is illegal and I feel as if I'm doing something wrong whenever I go to the bank to conduct ordinary everyday business.

You can actually blame all of those eBay and Mystery Shopping scams for the cashier's check faisco. Mainly because the idea of a "cashiers" check and money order have now lost there guaranteed funds status. Mainly because of so many banks being burned with fake ones.
Then as for the wire option, now I haven't had the pleasure of using the new Bodog, but last I knew the only withdrawal option was by check. Unless if you had deposited by Wire or Money Transfer. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

IMO this story sounds really sketchy as I have never been paid by cashier check. If the bank took the check on deposit then after the allowed period for an international check to be paid, (per banking regulations)the check amount will either be credited to your account or the bank has to contact you to tell you why it is taking longer(such as they haven't recieved payment on the check from the bank it was drawn on). The bank it was drawn on isn't going to "turn it in to a cashier's check". Cashier Checks have to be bought at the bank and I doubt the casinos processor did that.

Perhaps the check will clear, if not, it will be returned to you and you can send a copy to the casino.

If you asked to close your account when they were bodog, it should have nothing to do with your new account at Bovada.

Wait for the check to either clear or be returned to you. Unless it is confiscated for fraud or some other reason by their bank, it will be returned to you. Either way, if it isn't, your bank owes you an explanation as to why it was not.
