Perhaps I should have posted this last week but in light of Bab's post this morn about duplicate charges to her bank account I am now thinking at least a warning is appropriate for users of eCheck. Made a $100 deposit to a reputable casino early morning Oct 31 which cleared my bank account late evening Oct 31. Yes eCheck can be that fast as I've seen this before. Woke Nov 1 to see an additional $100 charge from eCheck clear my account.

This did happen to me once before but with a valid reason. My deposit attempt timed out and I made a second attempt depositing. This does occur occasionally and made perfect sense to me. The casino found the second deposit in a couple of days and returned my money.

This time however is different. My deposit was processed on the banking page flawlessly, no delay, no time out, nothing to give any indication that there would be a problem. The casino in question is also puzzled as to why this would happen. Unfortunately my fears escalated when finding out that eCheck's processor is Instadebit who will NOT confirm that they are the processor and who have not answered my emails to them. Am now at the mercy of the casino to solve this problem for me and latest indication is that this will take some time.

So just wanted to give anyone who uses eCheck a heads up and to note that checking you bank accounts on a daily basis is the smartest way to go.

And keeping a running log on paper of all deposits and withdrawals if you use more than one method and play at more than one casino.

My bank does everything to the web instantly;debit, credit, grocery, online... but some banks take days to show up. Get with a bank that uses jack henry netteller (yip, but the original co, not the NLR we know) and you will have realtime control of your money :)

Another suggestion... when giving every sort of processor and casino access to your banking info, players might want to look into having a small account that is exclusively for gambling. That way if the account is pilfered, or double charged, or whatever, the lost funds won't affect paying the rent or buying groceries.

That's a capital suggestion :D

Might want to run a few random 'safe' payments through it too... ftd floral... donations to known nat'l charities, transfers in and out of spouse's or your other acct.. it might look a little funny if you had a pattern - every friday night a bicycle shop in dubai, every other saturday a coffee shop in amsterdam:eek2:


Might even be a good idea to mix up the reloadable's uses a littl e gas and grocery now and then, i dunno

I don't know if this is anything but I went to use my debit/credit card at a store last week and it was declined. I new there was money in that account so I called the bank and asked why it was declined and they said that my card had a warm block on it. So I asked what that meant and they transferred me to a manager and recorded the conversation and asked if I had used my account for purchases from vintagevibez which is in UK which comes up when I use it for a deposits into my casino account. I said yes and they said that other accounts from there bank have had charges from this company that were not authorized so they put a warm block on mine. What do you think of this?

I think a casino is going to lose a processor very soon.

This is exactly what I do Mousey. I have a seperate account that I use for online gambling exclusively so if anyone decides they want to dip their paws into the honey jar, they will get a big surprise. :D

I do the same thing. I opened an account that has a Visa debit card and I use this account just for gaming. I want my ACH back! LOL

the way ive been making deposits is with a mastercard giftcard.they all seem to like them havent had one rejected yet.
Spin Palace got intouch with me after making a dep with one the next day.
told them what i had and where i buy.she said you are the first depositer with such a thing.
I said jackpot. do i win something.
never heard boo from the again about the card.

so is that the best way to make a dep.

and when iam lucky enough to WIN someday soon
Can i just ask for a check from these casinos.

i know it will take longer to receive but 2 or 3 week is ok with me.
would that be standard for a check
also would you have to give documents to them

would this be the best way to dep and withdraw from casinos.

Thanks this is a great site..Cheers

:confused:

You're from Canada, why would you have problems depositing? At least you have more choices than us Americans when it comes to places you can play at.

Who said anything about my cashing out? How am I lucky? Go read up on what's going on with Americans and online gambling, and let me know if you think Americans are still lucky.

I use Moneybookers for withdrawals. Then from there, I request a cheque. It comes in U.S. dollars, and usually arrives within 7 business days tops. Or you can withdraw from Moneybookers directly to your bank account.

What's with the people who don't use the whole line to type? Just keep on typing to the end of the line and it will automatically wrap to the next line, lol.

Why type like
this and make it so
very difficult to read?

When you can type your stuff like this and let your sentences and words flow freely? :p

Omg, A couple years ago, when I used to use echeck, I thought this was happening. I am talking about hundreds of dollars! Between Me & my Mom probably thousands, actually I know thousands. How would I go back and find out if I too got shafted for some cash. I know there were several times when I would play, run over to the bank and deposit, only to find the next day I would be short like anywhere from $100 and up, one time like $600 I knew I hadn't deposited that much!! How would I find out? Would they send me copies? Does anyone know?

Considering this thread was started a year ago, I guess I should post a follow up now lol..The problem was corrected swiftly and has not happened since. I have continued to use e-check for the last year without any further problems. Patrina..I think it might be a bit late for anyone to check into what occured so long ago. If you printed & kept your deposit printouts, then perhaps they could check into it as the transaction numbers on the printouts are required for the casino to follow up on. You would also need copies of your bank statements with the e-check reference numbers so a comparison can be made. Since this glich occurs so rarely, I doubt that was your problem unless you remember an evening of continued timed out deposit delays happening to you. In that case and if you have all the info listed above, it may be worth checking it out. Good luck to you :)

Not all sites offer cheques as withdrawal methods. I know that Simon Says and Slotocash do not, nor wire transfers. In fact, I do not believe any Rival offers cheques. So I would ask before making a deposit. I too use a prepaid mastercard Zack.
