:tantrum: Hello all. As most of the poker world knows by know, US players can not use NETeller any more because of uncle sam breaking the World Trade Organization agreement and is attacking online poker. They arrested the two founders of NETeller, who are no longer with the company, to which NETeller decided to no longer serve american customers. Damn, ok, whatever we can use other services and more will come along no problem...right? Wrong, now the US government has seized 55 MILLION bucks that was either in the accounts of or on the way back to us customers. this means if you had money on NETeller and havent cashed it out yet or worse, tryed to cash out but havent seen your money, guess what....You might not get it for a really long time. This internet gambling law is being fought by the WTO mostly because Antiqua, a memeber island nation which is home to at least 3 online poker sites, is saying this decision is affected their economy. The WTO found in favor of Antiqua and ordered the US to change their practices and Uncle sam is now doing this. here is the latest article. THE MORE YOU KNOW!!!!:tantrum:

I don't think there is any way you are going to stop gambling sites just like you are not going to shut down porn sites. If there is money to be made in anything, people will find a way to put it online.

That is why I was advocating taking your money out of Neteller.

If you play online poker..you gotta use a european bank and you have no problems.

Bodog seems to have a workaround going as well.....you can deposit to bet sports...transfer it to your poker account..then back to the sports account...cut a check.

Most important...Use european funding sources.
