......but you closed you account. what if they are sending the rest right now?:eek2:

Just what I was thinking. I expect the OP was worried they would change their minds, and remembering what Betfair did to a Portuguese player (paid, then took it straight back again 2 days later from his BANK), he was probably making sure Rival couldn't try the same trick.

It might have been better to empty the account, but leave it open for a while just to see if the rest came along.

It may STILL be worth talking to the bank to ask in general terms what would happen if "companies they did business with" didn't update their records quickly enough and tried to pay or take money from the closed account.

I expect there would be a procedure whereby the OP could retrieve the rest were Rival to pay it.

This may have come as a result of Rival themselves taking over this failed casino, and finally honouring the promise made by the CEO that players of bust white labels would not lose their money.

If Rival are to survive having lost their US players, and throwing out Canadians earlier, they will have to appeal to the rest of the world, where Rival is not held in high esteem, and where competition for players is open and fierce.

I am as mystified as everyone else - why close the account if you'd already removed the funds? :confused:
They still owe you $25,000 - how can they pay that now?

KK

:eek:

Indeed. That's a lot of money and they'll no doubt be delighted to see you've closed your account. Thus, in their eyes, accepting you don't want the rest.

Make sure they really ARE from that casino. It could be hackers who have stolen a credit card and "gives" you the money to use for later money laundring. Why should casino only pay you 55.000? is it max 5000 a week in 11 weeks? Have casino responded you per email? You said in another thread that someone had used a credit card that was not yours.

Maby they hacked you and now have your bank codes??

I would advise you to contact Casino just to ask if they have paid you.

Glad to hear that you finally received some of the money owed atleast! I'l bet it was a pretty good feeling seeing $55k suddenly appear in the account.

But I agree with the others here, closing the bank account probably wasn't that smart if Rival is planning to pay you the rest what is owed. I would definatley move them to another account as you did btw!

Good luck on receiving the rest of what is owed to you! :thumbsup:

I did confirm with my bank before closing the account that I could have funds nominated to another of a number of accounts I hold with the bank, should funds come in. The closed one was purely for online 'gambling' purposes. It was more shock and and a slight bit of awe that I closed the account, and for obvious reasons I won't disclose the details here but I can definitely say I don't think it was done with the full knowledge of Rival senior management !!! i will say that 55k was 50k more than what i thought i would be getting.........Hey RIVAL.....ain't karma a beeyatch.

I really hope the other $25K also will be transfered. By mistake or on purpose... who cares? It's should have been your money in the first place! :thumbsup:

Glad to hear you got paid some of what you are owed.

I wish they would pay me some of what they owe me...

I do have to say that I am surprised that TIV paid anyone at all.

I keep thinking it was a mistake of some kind and that some clerk has lost his/her job because they sent you that payment... ;)
