This is why it is so important to understand your money is not safe on an MG site. This is just going to happen again and again.
I was one of the victims there and since this scandal is not widely known, Im going to tell it here.
The first thing I did was signing up a 60%RB account on the MG skin Betholdem.
I never got paid so I cashed out and registrered another account via another affiliate on another MG skin 123poker. There things went well and I played there on and off.
Somewhere in feb 2007 Bodog bogth both these two betcorp sites.
So far so good. Here something highly unusual happened.
Neither 123poker, Betholdem or Bodog informed their players about this!
All you know is, you click on the microgaming icon on your desctop but the microgaming software never loads.
I finally did a search and found out what happened.
Next thing happening is that Bodog instead of creating one account (For Betholdem+123poker.) creates two accounts.
Then I get an email from their security department telling me my account is locked and funds confiscated because "I have created multiple accounts on Bodog" which is not allowed!
I finally got my money back and a Bodog account but it was a hell of a sweat.
As far as I know, there was no wagering condition involved at all.
