    Wire Card AG

    Wire Card AG is the Corporation that OWNS CLICK2PAY. You can go to their website and put in Search for Click2pay. It tells when then established click2pay, etc.

    They are probably the ones processing Click2pay wire transfers. Setting up an account with them will require you to file them as Foreign bank account with IRS.

    I looked it up and the Federal Reserve and Treasury Dept. consider companies as Click2pay as "NON+BANKs" who facilitate ecommerce transactions. So I still can't figure out why someone posted that C2P and neteller, etc. are considered Foreign bank accounts.

    Unless I'm missing something, it sounds like yet another proprietary deposit and withdrawal system. Better than nothing, though, if ya gotta play.

    Club World getting debit cards

    Hya
    Michael from Club world called me last night and told me that they are getting debit cards for players including the USA. It will be much easier for us. There will be a minor charge but he said it will be worth it

    I mentioned this on the online casino thread as well

    Huh, looks like the bank is a fairly recent acquisition of wirecard, which is largely a payment processor:

    1.5 million euro in deposit insurance? Beat the crap out of FDIC's $100,000 limit.

    The reporting requirement is for foreign financial accounts, which traditionally included brokerage accounts and the like in addition to bank accounts.

    THANKS GRANDMASTER-THATS BAD NEWS

    Oh boy!, I'm not feeling good about this situation. I never reported these web wallets because I thought they were just payment processors like PayPal. Do people have to report Paypal? I've been playing for a couple of years, never reported anything. Mainly because I am in the RED. But I guess thats not how it works.

    Unfortunately, stupidity is not a defense to prosecution. However, I guess I am in the same boat as the majority of players.

    The issue is what to do now.

    I wish the government, who said they passed this legislation because people were "losing their money", I WISH THEY WOULD announce an amnesty to allow citizens to report their online gaming transactions. Obviously, if they come after us all, THEY WILL BE PUTTING US IN A FAR WORSE FINANCIAL POSITION THEN ANY OF US OUR IN RIGHT NOW as a result of playing online.

    I knew this was going to happen. The"act" addresses financial institutions, but the FALLOUT is going to be the IRS having access to all the records!!!

    Damn. Now not only will I have lost in the Long RUN but I'll be paying penalties, interest, etc. and possible prosecution.

    That sucks, they knew the number of people gambling online. So are they going to label us all CRIMINALS? Or do they just want us to stop!

    Looks like Joe Public (er, Hans Publik) has to pay a lot of fees to maintain a "regular" account with Wirecard Bank AG, so I think Casino Action probably isn't getting them for free.
