    Is it possible for you to work out a deal for those who is owed large sum of money, to travel and pick it up in person?

    A cashier or travel check should be an option to receive these funds.

    ... nor an arms dealer, which might be helpful at some of the ugly places.

    seriously: What do you want? Go to Costa Rica (for example) find an "office", walk into it and say: hello, its me, my money please- - -:rolleyes:
    If you love your health, please do two things:
    1. Dont do that
    2. play only accredited casinos - you will need neither a travel agent nor a weapon.

    There is no need to travel to a dodgy place. There are many reputable countries in the world who are not the USA.
    The casino could make an arrangement with a local firm, perhaps a bank or solicitor. The casino pays the money into an escrow account with the solicitor or bank, and gives the details of who is allowed to collect it in person. The player will have to present ID verification documents when they arrive, which would have to be rigorous enough that the money could not be taken by an imposter. The casino would make the arrangements personally with the player involved, rather than have it publically known when and where large sums are being colected from. Once in the players hands, it would be the players responsibility to import the funds back home if that is what they choose to do.
    There is nothing illegal in a casino doing this if the money is the rightful property of the person they are paying, and that paying out winnings on gambling are not illegal in the country where the offices are located.

    There is also the possibility of the player opening a foreign bank account, only worth it for larger sums, and have the casino pay the money there, or issue a check to be deposited there. This bank account can then be used by the player to send money to his American account, although this would involve the rules regarding bringing money into the USA. Since the money belongs to the player, there is no crime involved unless the foreign bank is in a country that does not allow gaming transactions through the banking network. Rich businessmen (and women) seem to have little trouble opening bank accounts in certain tax havens to shelter money from certain activities from laws that would apply as soon as it is brought home. The US might require such assets abroad to be declared for tax purposes, but players will at least have the money in their name, and can figure out how to use it or bring it home in their own time.

    Yes - it just takes longer.
    I can just see it: a lonely dusty road in some South African desert and meeting some guy with a black leather briefcase.

    By the time you've figured out the logistics to this, you'll probably have your check. :D

    is this the reason

    bryan, is the reason it is taking so long is because of finding processer for the checks? i am trying to understand what the holdup is from everything that i have read on here it seems to be the problem but what i don't understand is why they just wasn't straight with everybody in first place but it seems to wide spread as far as how many different sites i think if all these sites would of just said we are having problems with processers and its going to take awhile to get everthing going in right direction like some of them did from the posts i read i don't think you would of had such a onslot of negative posts but i do thank you very much and this is fantastic way of getting information i would of never of know about this site if another player at table hadn't of mentioned it to me two thumbs up to you and site

    Although not in South Africa, that reminds me of the movie "Desperado". If you haven't seen it yet, SEE IT. :p
