Moneybookers blocked US gambling transaction. Is this true ?

Hi, I got this message from CasinoEuro after making a payout request at their casino. Here is the message I got from them:

" Due to the new gambling legislation in US, Moneybookers do not accept anymore payments from gaming companies to US Moneybookers account. Therefore could you send us your bank information:

Account number
Sort code
Name of the bank
Address of your bank

And we will send the funds you have requested to your bank account.
If you have a NETeller account, we can also send you funds there.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we truly apologize for the inconvenience.

Kind regards

Payments "

However, I cannot find any statements directly from Moneybookers or any news regarding Moneybooker is blocking US gambling transactions. I wonder if
CasinoEuro/CherryCasino is bull$hitting or if this is true.
I just got an email from ecash saying they are mailing me my balances by MAIL by check....bummer....hate checks...and mail..soooo bothersome! :rolleyes: ;)
I have read elsewhere that this is true. Moneybookers is not transacting with US customers any longer.
Cherry / NetEnt is a pretty good outfit and I doubt that they are BS-ing you.

Like sdaddy said, have you tried contacting Moneybookers direct to get it straight from the horse's mouth?

I haven't seen any specific news items.
