Bodog Payout problem
I deposited $50 into Bodog a few months ago. After playing for a while I decided to make a cashout of my initial buyin plus $5 (Five extra just so I would always be ahead lol). I basically did this to see how well the payout tranactions went with Bodog. Below are several emails from bodog ranging from the initial request until today.
I received my check as promised. Fortunately, I never deposited it into my bank account. After the check sat on my table for a few weeks I get an email from Bodog today. They advised me there was a banking issue with the check and not to cash it! It's a good thing it was not for a few thousand or I would have deposited it and apparently bounced my own checks thanks to Bodog issuing a rubber check!
I am waiting to hear back from them as to what the "banking issue" was. I never requested to cancel the payout as one of the emails suggest. Even if I did, it should not have been possible. I have had a check for weeks now. I prefer to use email so I will have some sort of record of correspondence. That's why I have not called them just in case anyone was curious about that.
Just curious if anyone else has had this type of problem. I will reply to this post when I hear from them again.
