Guess our neighbors to the north will get to experience life without Neteller. I wonder how long Neteller can keep this up before going bellyup?

:eek: What a load of crap!!!! Why in the hell are they grouping us in the same risk factor as the US? Well, I guess my gambling days are done. Was fun while it lasted. I hope Neteller DOES go under, this is the most rediculous thing I've ever heard. News flash, online gambling in Canada is 100% LEGAL. At least we got some warning, time to pull funds and move on. Not really a big fan of pre-paid cards etc so I guess I'll take my leave and just enjoy living vicariously through the few who are still free to gamble here. Unreal. Bye bye Neteller, I hope you know you just shot your own foot!
Yes gambling is still 100% fine here for now!
Any suggestions for deposit methods now?
The Use My Bank thing I am not sure of because I don't think my bank would approve....any thoughts?

USEMYBANK works just fine, also MoneyMart has a prepaid mastercard that works too.

Author Jerome Corsi filed a Freedom of Information Act request yesterday asking for full disclosure of the activities of an office implementing a trilateral agreement with Mexico and Canada that apparently could lead to a North American union, despite having no authorization from Congress.

As WorldNetDaily reported, the White House has established working groups, under the North American Free Trade Agreement office in the Department of Commerce, to implement the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or SPP, signed by President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin in Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005.

Corsi specifically has requested the partnership's membership lists, constitutive documents, meeting minutes, meeting agendas and meeting schedules as well as all findings, reports, presentations or memoranda.

He also wants all comments to representatives of the "Prosperity Working Groups" or other working groups, committees or task forces associated with the partnership along with internal and external interagency or intra-agency memoranda of understanding, letters of intent, agreements, initiatives and budgeting documents.

Corsi believes President Bush effectively agreed to erase U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada when he signed the SPP.

Geri Word, the administrator in charge of SPP, confirmed in a telephone conversation with Corsi that has not published the membership lists of the working groups or the many trilateral agreements the website documents indicate are being implemented.

"This is all being done by the executive branch below the radar," Corsi told WND. "If President Bush had told the American people in the 2004 presidential campaign that his goal was to create a North American union, he would not have carried a single red state."

The president, Corsi maintains, has charged the bureaucracy to form a North American union "through executive fiat ... without ever disclosing his plans directly to the American people or to Congress."

Attorney Robert A. McGuire, who filed the request on Corsi's behalf and is preparing further requests, says if the president "is creating a new North American union government without the full and complete knowledge of the American people, we are facing a severe constitutional crisis."

The purpose of the FOIA, he said, is to get the "full facts exposed in the light of day, available for the American people and for Congress to examine and decide."

Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., is demanding the Bush administration fully disclose the activities of the SPP office.

Tancredo wants to know the membership of the SPP groups along with their various trilateral memoranda of understanding and other agreements reached with counterparts in Mexico and Canada.

Many SPP working groups appear to be working toward achieving specific objectives as defined by a May 2005 Council on Foreign Relations task force report, which presented a blueprint for expanding the SPP agreement into a North American union that would merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a new governmental form.

*sighs* typical government BS. I might look into the Usemybank option but quite honestly if I don't decide to do it it's no huge loss. I have a casino 15 minutes away, so if I get that urge I'll just hop in the car and go. Neteller conversion fee's were ridiculously high anyways, so good riddance. I just used it because it was so easy.
It might raise flags, but there's no need for the flags to be red as gambling in Canada is still legal.

Unfortunately, my bank is not on the list for the Usemybank function, so I guess my gambling train ends here.

transfer my whole balance to pokerstars because neteller doesn't process my withdrawal for 2 days.

pokerstars is great! Increase my deposit limit as soon as they receive my email
I have deposited with Use My Bank but there was an exta fee of $1.50 for using email transfer services (at least with my bank) everytime I used it.
Had no problems with it, but as far as I know, you can't withdraw any winnings to Use My Bank, it's just deposit only.

Thanks for the Neteller warning paul0, so far I haven't received any notice from Neteller about this, and I'm supposedly a 'VIP' (whatever that really means):mad:

I'm uninstalling casinos since this whole depositing thing is becoming a bit of a nightmare.
If you'll remember, before NETller completely locked USA players out, they said we could use NETeller for non-gambling and peer to peer transfers (the same thing they're telling Canadians right now) ... then a few days later, they locked us out and there we were with no way to get our money out. Therefore, my advice to Canadian players: If you have money in NETeller get it out, and get it out NOW. Doesn't matter if you have to plunk it all into a casino or poker room, or you get the cash at your ATM -- just do it!

Pardon me, my paranoia is showing.... :oops:
Almost appears as though the companies that were used to get funds from us to netteller is restricting transactions, same as with what happened to the neighbors south of us. Time to contact parliament.
Mousey, I don't think it's paranoia... based on the past, it's TRUTH! I definitely would advise ALL Canadians to get all funds out of Neteller right now, don't wait.

What a sad day :(
Crap ain't it.

Maybe this is how Neteller are intending to repay their US customers. By confiscating Canadian's and Turk's money!
Time to withdraw as of today.... :eek2:
what about instadebit??

I got an 'effective immediately' email from my 'usuals' before I got anything from Neteller.. no warning ahead of time either. :eek2:

I see that instadebit is for canadians only and from what I've read thus far there aren't any 'hidden fees'..I haven't seen if there is a limit as to what banks can be used, like on UseMyBank..which sucks the big one for me as there's only a credit union here on base and I dont feel like hauling myself in to town to open up at another bank.

Anyone know of any pros/cons with instadebit? :what:
I'd love to hear any info people have on Instadebit as well... it looks good to me, no fees etc. Might give it a go this weekend.

Small edit: seems not a lot of places take this deposit method. Inetbet doesn't, 32Red doesn't, Villento doesn't... Really the only places I play/would want to play at. Maybe we'll see it more as a deposit option in the future now... here's hoping.
neteller, now that is attractive stock
It's springtime, new rules should be in place.

No chance of a delisting without cripple unless it is a 'good ol boys' release.

I wouldn't touch it now with gwb money.
