    Hello everyone, MaxD here. Most of you know already me as the Pitch-A-Bitch guy here at Casinomeister but if that's news to you then feel free to enlighten yourself by having a read through the Pitch-A-Bitch FAQ.

    One of the features we have here at Casinomeister is that members can create their own blogs (see Member Blogs in the gold colored navigation bar up near the top of your page (see the attached image for details)).

    So, I've re-tooled my old blog to create a new one, The BitchMeister Blog, wherein I'll post a couple times a week about what's going on in the wild and wooly world of PABs (PAB = Pitch-A-Bitch).

    Normally all of the PAB stuff goes on privately and behind the scenes but we thought it would be a good idea to let folks know what's news worthy with the PABs and the blog forum seems an ideal venue for that.

    Of course the privacy of the PAB issues is very important so I won't be divulging any of that sort of thing on the blog, but there's still lots happening there that we can talk about and should be of interest to readers.

    Due to the nature of the subject matter I have disabled comments in the new blog. Sorry if this is an inconvenience but it seemed prudent to go that route, at least for the time being.

    So, there it is, I hope you find the new blog of interest. If you have any suggestions, recommendations, general PAB related questions, etc here is probably a good place to field those so fire away.
    (Please note though that I don't expect to discuss specific PABs here so posts of that sort will pretty much be ignored: this isn't the place for that.)

    Ok, I will own up to the fact that when I first saw this, I said GREAT! no more searching for the end results to a lot of the complaints..I will be a regular to this area...and love the "To the Point" post....:thumbsup: Now, how about some in depth stuff on the "who,what,where,why" on the final results done if possible..

    Like the old PABs resolved, etc: 5, which ones were they, what were they etc..is this possible to expand when completed or would that be too much?

    Thanks, either way for posting these.. :D

    The whole idea was to keep it short and snappy, but I'll think about ways to add a little detail to the "resolved" section ... provided it doesn't bloat out the effort involved in posting.

    No detail will be added to the "new" section though: I think it's unfair to dump that info until the issues have been looked into. It's too easy to get the wrong impression from the raw data on new PABs.

    Just posted a quick post-ICE bit on the BitchMeister Blog. Nothing major, just a few quick comments, a big "thanks" to the friends and associates we hung out with in London, and a few other bits 'n' bobs.

    I sense a pattern here, the same kind that fraudsters have used for ages. E.g. you buy car parts from eBay and send money first. A week goes by but you don't receive anything from the seller. "My supplier had problems, but you will have it soon." Another week passes. "You haven't got it? I sent it days ago. It must have gotten lost in mail. Let me contact the post office." Now it's been a month. The seller doesn't answer your emails anymore.

    Fraudsters always offer new excuses until things get too hot and that's when they disappear with your money. Rushmore has owed me over $5k since last Christmas. Everytime I ask for my money, I either get no answer at all, or "we're investigating" is all they have to say. No timeframe whatsoever as to the lenght of the investigation is provided.

    Have you ever questioned the integrity of Rushmore in this "investigation"? Do you think this is standard business practice and example how customers should be dealt with? Because Rushmore is still in your Accredited Casinos list and I haven't seen a single warning anywhere about this site.

    A small group of fraudsters can ruin things for a lot of people - especially legitimate players. That's why we come down so hard on them.

    This casino group was over run by a number of fraudsters in December-January, and a full investigation has been in process since then. I explained this in my latest video - and it's some serious fraud stuff that affects us all.
    'The investigations include hiring private detectives that are assigned to contact the players to ensure they are real people who have participated in the casino. If they are, they are paid - no problem. If they don't have an idea what's going on, then it's a unquestionable incident of identity theft.

    Fraudsters buy or steal people's identity to open bogus accounts. This is something that should concern everyone. If you are owed funds from these guys, and are a legit player, then you'll get paid. You just need to be patient and direct your frustration at the a-holes who rip off other peoples' IDs.

    What I'm getting at here is that people view you as mainly a "casino watchdog and player advocate". And by you not questioning Rushmore's methods anyway you've effectively given casinos free pass to delay big cashouts by monthts using investigations as a smoke screen. What you seem to be saying is that you don't care about players not getting due process, or it's "let ten innocent people get hurt if one guilty one can be caught".

    During this time of financial crisis I am extremely wary of keeping four figure sums anywhere online. What you imply is that when banks and whole countries are crushing down I should just trust these online casinos that when they hijack my money, they're actually running an investigation.

    Rushmore's actions here have been a disgrace to what good customer service means. They never contacted me, they just didn't pay my cashouts. I had to figure out myself that there was an "investigation" because they couldn't even inform me of that. I have repeatedly offered to provide evidence that I am a honest player, or for them to at least provide a shred of evidence to prove otherwise, but they haven't so much as called me in the process. Great detective work indeed.

    I would like to see a little more of that player's advocate and especially casino watchdog stuff, than just blindfoldedly accepting everything a casino does.

    Sorry, I disagree with you. There is no "free pass". I am in direct contact with the casino. I've met them face to face over this. And I understand the dilemmas of operating an online casino. And I understand what it is to be a player. Just because I don't explain every minute detail of my decision making process doesn't mean I'm making these decisions without a care.

    There was massive fraud committed at this casino. I've seen the reports from the UK private detectives who investigated these players. It was all legit. If you think I'm bullshitting you, well that's your prerogative. Just because I tell certain players what they don't want to hear does not make me wrong or not an advocate for the player. I am more an advocate for fairness by the way. And fairness is a two way street.

    So you think I'm sitting here with a blindfold wrapped around my head, my fingers typing away - moved by the strings of my puppet masters. Nice :thumbsup:

    I do what I can to provide a level playing ground. Fair is fair. If you have a pending PAB, I'll check up on on this and see if it can't be expedited.

    As for "casino watchdog" stuff, we have warnings posted nearly every week in our forum - exposs on the webcast and newsletters. Unfortunately, player fraud has been on the upswing so you are going to see more reports on that. That's just the way it is. Don't shoot the messenger.

    Or do you feel I should ignore player fraud and just put the blinders on? :rolleyes:
