UseMyWallet and QuickTender Make Statement About Possibly Seized Funds

Casinomeister was able to get a statement from UseMyWallet, also known as QuickTender, about the recent withdrawal difficulties.  UseMyWallet is concerned that the funds are being seized when they reach U.S. banks although they have not been notified that it is happening.  I cannot link to this post on Casinomeister as it is in a private forum but you can find it here as well.

The cliffnotes are that UseMyWallet suspects that the funds have been seized in transit to U.S. banks.  They have also suspended all U.S. withdrawals until the problem has been located and resolved. It seems withdrawals to U.S. banks made May 6, 2011 or later are frozen.

In the meantime players can use UseMyWallet and QuickTender to move funds from one site to another.  While Merge Gaming and Everleaf Gaming have stopped accepting UseMyWallet Cake Poker still accepts it as a deposit method at the time of this post.  If you have money on UseMyWallet I urge you to move it to Cake Poker.  If you do not have a Cake Poker account you can create one here and get 33% rakeback. Cake Poker is U.S. friendly and the second biggest U.S. friendly poker network.

If UseMyWallet goes down then U.S. player deposit options will be down to almost zero.  Players can still send Western Union and Moneygram type transfers easily.  Some U.S. friendly online poker rooms also offer some smaller ewallets.  Since U.S. credit card rejections are close to 100% U.S. poker players are running out of options.

The only positive side is that maybe this is what we need to get regulations to make everything legal since this is angering such a large part of the U.S. population.  If you are in the U.S. make sure to contact your representatives at the state and federal level to let them know how angry you are about this situation and how it needs to be resolved immediately.  It may be virtually impossible to play U.S. online poker in a few months so the time to act is now.
