This is a discussion on my mistake with betus within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; i was reading another post about how issues can arise from sharing accounts and IP addresses and i thought this would be something of use
i was reading another post about how issues can arise from sharing accounts and IP addresses and i thought this would be something of use to someone if i posted it....my issue is that i live with my bf...we both have our own pc's and we both have our own accounts at betus and its sister site cakepoker...a friend of my bf that works with him also plays both sites from his home...he lives alone...i get a call from my bf that they both want to register in a tourney at betus but they may not make it home in time to register before it fills up so could i please register them both...well i know already that i have to sign my bf up from his pc and his friend from my pc or it won't go through...np i wasn't gonna play the tourney that night anyway so i didn't mind....well a week or two later the said friend had a credit card issue with betus and they shut down his account...and because i had logged him into his account from my pc it also banned my IP address keeping both my bf and i from getting into our accounts...although cake didn't shut us down only betus....his friend has yet to get things strait with them so i still can't play..i'd kill him if i had a big bankroll in there ...luckily cake lets me in cuz that's where my funds are lol....but i didn't realize they could do this and thought it may be helpful to others and make them think twice before doing the same favor for a "friend"

I would not consider him a friend anymore. He apparently did something illegal with credit card if the issue was not resolved.

re: Poker & my mistake with betus
Let's not jump to conclusions, all kinds of crazy things happen with credit cards and poker sites. They mess up sometimes. Theres a post about on here about Carbon Poker and a credit card. The guy had to go through hell to sort it out.

well just as a foot note to this...i called them on the phone and they told me to have him call and straiten it out with them and it would clear my account...he did call and straiten it out...he can now use his account but i still can't use mine...i sent them three emails regarding this and they never responded ...i called them on the phone again and they said that they would send me an email and i had to send them some verifications and they could then over ride the whole thing and open my account again...never got the email...so i'm writing them off...there are many other poker sites out there to choose from...i don't need the hassle lol
