Should we worry about UseMyWallet / UMW?

After having money from Ewalletexpress seized by the Federal Govt., is there any reason not to worry the same will happen with UseMyWallet? How was Ewalletexpress a different company than UseMyWallet when it comes to US Federal law?

Re: Should we worry about UseMyWallet?

I started a thread regarding this not too long ago and no one cared to discuss it.

Re: Should we worry about UseMyWallet?

Relevant question: does UMW deal with sportsbooks? Also possibly relevant: I don't believe it's used by any of the biggest US poker rooms now.

Relevant difference: UMW is by invitation only, though I'm skeptical that makes much of a difference.

You think a site is a scam so you post an active link on the forum to the scam page? A+

Re: USEMYWALLET scam?

The way i understand the info on usemywallet, you need to email rpmpoker ask them about usemywallet and they will send an invitation to open an account at usemywallet.

Re: USEMYWALLET scam?

i think the colin feral thing is supposed to be me looking at this scam website, and deciding against it. i look back briefly because i want it to be so, but alas........it is not, so i walk away from the portrait.

A time remembered of lovers passed. A hiccup in Logic. The portal is calling my name. Promising eternal life. Viewer beware for nothing is for free. It calls, "Hark! Keep eyes with me! Before it's too late!"

The urgency absorbed from the portrait burns inside me like two ulcers trying to occupy same space. I have to look back, casting 1K tiny prayers that the situation will change. It does not....Colin Feral walks away...."F^#* you then B!&$*"

Re: Should we worry about UseMyWallet?

I am about to use this, Being on the Merge network its the only way to cashout via wire.

Are their any opinions on the risks involved using this method? Do you think I should just be patient and just cashout via check? The thing that makes me the most nervous about this method is that it caters only to US players, where scruitny is the highest....

UseMyWallet has been a reliable service for years now. But as JK noted earlier, they have the same inherent risks as any other similar site servicing US players. I would not worry at all about using UseMyWallet(as of now as far as I know). At the same time I would not leave money on there for any extended period of time. Use it to move your money not to hold your money. Always get in and out and stay aware of all the latest rumblings if any surface regarding potential problems.

Thank you sir, it's such a crazy climate that we live/play in these days......sometimes it seems so shady, having to dodge the Feds and all, lol.

Re: Should we worry about UseMyWallet?

some good info here. i agree with the "use it to move not store" reasoning. is there a thread where people talk about their own specific w/d's using this method? im about to sign up...

fwiw: have seen umw logos on power (cake), AP, and PO (merge).
