PokerStars gave me a call, not a lot new

PokerStars gave me a call today. Not a whole lot of new information but figured I would share what I was told. I was told they are calling all players to relay this information.

1) They again reassured me that player's funds are safe.

2) They plan to have more information to give us on Monday or Tuesday.

3) I asked them if I made a foreign bank account if that would help me retrieve the funds more quickly. They told me it was their general policy that you can't cash out anywhere but the country you reside in but given the special circumstances that new options may be made available.

Re: PokerStars gave me a call, not a lot new

Hey I asked for a check to be sent on friday, got the automated response like everything is ok. Should I cancel this and wait for more news? Did they say anything about current pending cash outs. Thanks

PS: We're sorry, sir, it's our policy that you can only cash out in the US, where you reside.
Customer: OK, no problem, just send me the money in the US.

so are you saying that current cash out request will always be "pending". Should I take a risk to get the check mailed or just leave it on PS for the moment?

Can someone who actually has money on one of these sites say something. What are your future plans.
