If your not willing to provide the documents then just realize that you probably shouldn't try playing Online Poker in the current environment. In fact, if the US gov. regulates it then expect verification to possibly be more difficult.
This is all you guys can say is that its standard. It is not in my experience. Maybe for you in another country it is. I don't know, just going by my own experience.
If it was regulated, it would be different. I wish it was regulated.
I have realized that online poker is not what it once was.
Again I played on intertops for less then a week 2k-3k hands. I sent cash on moneygram. I did not do any player transfer or anything.
I wish to close the account as I didn't like player1 2 3 showing up on my HEM. No problem I'll move on.
So, its not like I'm asking to play unverified. I just don't see the need for my personal account info and pp# to send a check? Why do they need to database this if I'm wanting to close the account?
I just want my deposit back, either in a check, or moneygram, or wu or whatever that I can verify in person, if needed. Is this so crazy?
There is no scam on my part, not even a question of it. Surely a scammer would not put up such a stink over principle? And since I haven't used a CC, where could there be a scam?
So where is the problem?
It's like if I went into a coffee shop and bought some coffee. Took a sip and didnt like it. What would you do as a business owner? You'd probably just give the money back?yes?
In this case I didnt even get the coffee or my money back? WTf?
