That I don't know. I didn't prepay, so my bill showed money due.

Hopefully your bill/statement will hit with a $0 balance or something like that, but I really don't know.

The bank assured me this is a credit card, and not just a debit/atm card.
Despite what the employee who assured you that he/she had just given you a credit card, it sounds like the card that your are referring to is almost certainly your atm card. Does it say "Access Card" in the upper right corner? If it does, it is JUST an atm card. At my branch in St. Catharines they said that they no longer make the CREDIT cards in house, and I assume that it is the same at all branches. They have to order the credit card separately and have it delivered to your branch in a week or more. It will have a VISA logo and say "U.S. Dollar" in the upper right corner. Here is the TD web site with info on the card and a picture: http://www.tdcanadatrust.com/tdvisa/usd.jsp).

Re: Steps required to open bank and poker accounts in Canada

Has any American gotten Neteller open after moving abroad?

After re-scanning my Passport (front and back) and sending it to them (and waiting over a week) they are now telling me I need a Mexican identity document (which I obv don't have and have no way of acquiring) to get my account approved. Sighhhhhhhh. Just wrote a long e-mail detailing the situation and included a lease/utility as well just for fun. Not feeling very optimistic however.

Yeah, it's the "Access Card". I'll go back and try to get the Visa card.

Thanks for the info! I would have given up on TD.

Re: Steps required to open bank and poker accounts in Canada

I am working on opening an account and going to Canada in a few days. I plan to have an RBC and HSBC account (HSBC because they are also located in the US) to use both for poker.
Is this wise to use them for poker or should I open a different bank? My goal is to transfer and/or use funds in the US from time to time, somehow. So a checking account and/or visa card would be nice, along with the ability to withdraw/transfer to my US bank.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Steps required to open bank and poker accounts in Canada

So I have moved into Vancouver and am having trouble with getting them a utility. They wont accept my cell phone (prepaid) docs. I am living somewhere that I cant get utilities in my name. How have people overcome this without having to wait 30 days for a cell bill?

Have the bank give you a copy of a voided check, sign it, and stamp it. This was sufficient for me in lieu of a utility bill. It also worked for at least one other poster.

Re: Steps required to open bank and poker accounts in Canada

What banking setup is best as far as fees go for transfering/wiring USD from
Canadian bank to US bank while at the same time allowing VISA verification
from moneybookers?

yea this is the conclusion i have reached as well. i wish they would explicitly just tell me this rather than have me run around and keep writing them e-mails. very frustrating and their customer service is just abysmal.
