Hello everyone. I don't post much, just read mostly. But I really need some advice from some of you who are experienced with this issue. I won recently off a freebie from JP and asked for a check, thinking it should not be a problem. Well my bank called and asked me to ask them to send it by WU or some other way. I guess they just did not want to mess with it since it was international. JP wrote me back saying they could not stop payment, it would cost $250. Told me to send it back, which on doing some research on this looks like would cost anywhere from $50 - $80, please correct me if I'm wrong. But the check is only for $150. I said to myself, only me, after months on months playing at casinos, finally get a cash out and this. Anyone have any advise? Should I speak to a rep here or just give up on getting this cash out, don't really want to do that, but if I have no choice. And I did deposit after I won, thought I could at least do that after winning, also have deposited there in the past too. Thanks in advance. :)

No. has not charged me. They said they were going to charge me $15 if it would have been cashed by them.


So what's the problem again? Take this $15 hit which is standard, wait the whatever stupid holding time they put on the check and then enjoy the money!:)

Well that is what I did. I deposited the check. Have been waiting 8 days, then bank calls and wants me to ask them to send it WU or some other way. I guess they don't want to cash it. So should I try to make them? Didn't know I could?

I am a little lost, so first off I am assuming that you got a check. Did you deposit it at the bank or was the teller refusing to deposit? Very confusing. I know when I go to my bank they deposit what I give to them. I am the the customer. If I give them a IOU on a napkin they better deposit it (Im sure the credit for this would be somwhere around $0 though)

Got the check and deposited on the 8th. Banks calls this morning and told me to contact owner of check to see if they would send it to me WU or some other way. Reason was because this is going to take a long time to go through, but I really got the feeling they did not want to cash it. So I guess I should call back Monday and ask if they would just send it to "collections" that is what the bank called it for international checks. That is where it had to go bank said.

Tell the bank to piss off, they took it so process it! Can you tell I hate banks?:p Or are they saying the check "bounced" and asking you to contact Jackpot Capital?

Mind you I don't know the whole banking process in the states now but I'm like BMW above a lil confused.:)

edit:

For the record, I had this same type problem with a online casino years ago who sent a check, but they had a office here in Canada, drawn on another Canadian bank and my bank still would barely take it, so I can relate to what you're going through in some way. :)


God I feel sorry for all you usa guys,have to go through all this crap. :/ Banks really that bad down there?

Thanks slotmaster and BMW. I am just going to tell them to send it to collections, I really don't care when I get the money as long as I get it. I guess maybe I just got paranoid when they called. I guess I don't need to be gambling online if that the case, lol. Anyway, thanks a lot for your advice. I am laughing at both of you for what you said, think you just made my day. My stress headache is leaving now, thanks again!!! :thumbsup:

Tell your bank you are not going to contact the check owner and tell them to process the cheque in the normal way. If they dont want to process it but are unable to provide a valid reason the problem is theirs. Possibly they are guessing that this cheque is related to gambling and DOJ's stance is against the processing of funds related to it. However, since the bank cannot prove it they are stuck in a quandary. Just let them process however long this takes and take it off your mind. Its their problem not yours.

Try a check cashing place. They charge 3-5% or more but be upfront with them and after they get all of your information they will probably cash it. I've done it that way before and it was a Canadian check. If you don't want to say it is from an online casino tell them it is from an online investment. Wink wink.

It has been 8 working days since you deposited the check, I always assumed the longest banks made us wait was 10?

My bank had a huge problem when I was getting checks from casinos. On the other hand, my husbands bank never said one word.

You didn't ask them how long it would take? And why would it take so long?

I asked about one of my checks last year, and the woman said they were getting a lot of "these kind of checks" recently, and most of them were bouncing. They eventually cashed it for me, since that one time, I have been giving my checks to my husband to cash at his bank.

Well after I deposited it, I didn't know it takes 2 weeks for Canadian checks. So I called after like 3 days because my deposit wasn't showing at all. Thought that was weird because it always shows when you make a deposit. That's when they told me it would take two weeks. Then I get a call today, still not sent to collections, thought that was weird too. So that's when I needed advice on what to do.

My bank was also saying checks can bounce up to a year after!!! No lie, they really DIDN'T want to take my check. They were hinting to me that whoever wrote my check could have worked at a company and stole a whole bunch of checks. I told them I sold something on ebay.

Well they never said anything like that to me, just kind of heard a begging sound for me to do it another way. So I was all for it until JP said send it back because it would cost $250 to stop payment. I told my hubby this only happens to me, I swear! Think after this I just quit, too much hassle.

:eek:

You usa guys have no other choice I guess than checks? checks bad, not just for online gaming but for anything now, no one wants to take them (as you can see) and it costs way to much money in fees and time.

Strange atmosphere at banks these days... they're afraid of cash... they're afraid of checks for more than a few bucks... they won't touch traveller's checks... they're suspicious of money orders... they think any out of country check is fake... my bank won't even let wire transfers through to me. What a crock. I must say, they have been good about no comment when I've deposited the Canadian (gambling) checks, though I've only had a couple over the past several months. I always make sure I have - at least- enough in the account to cover the deposited check should it bounce, and they never say a word. It usually takes 10 days to show up in my account... and it might take more at other banks.

They should have told you if the check bounced or not? Sheesh...

Good luck.

Have you had a long relationship with the bank? Becasue its international it can take 30-60 days to bounce, but the bank wll still give you credit in 2-5 days. So if you dont have a good relationship the bank might not want to risk you withdrawing money, then the check bouncing and you not make it good.

I hear you. It is a hassle. I think I was trying to take the lowest fee for the WD. And of course for that small amount that was the best way to do it. I guess I should have done the wire, still would have gotten something out of it.

I hope it all works out for you! As for Jackpot Capital, I think you were talking to a misinformed live chat person, cause $250 is ridiculous and if you are forced this route I would contact the rep on here first.:)

BMW, just read what you said. I did not know that it could take that long to bounce. Have had the account for like 4 years and I am in good standing. But I don't have that much activity there like my other bank, that I don't use for this kind of stuff. I guess I will see what happens. Not going to cry over spilled milk if it does not work out. Thanks all for your replies!!
