If you have logged in to poker4ever and are a US player you are told they are fearful of US legislation and are no longer accepting or sending money to US banks or credit cards. Then, they tell you they can't guarantee neteller is secure and are taking no responsibility.
What are they scared of? They is no law and the current bill is weak at best.

It's all because of the CEO from BOS (Carruthers) being arrested a couple of weeks ago in the U.S. on fraud and racketeering charges - but why a site like P4E would not accept U.S. players was already discussed in another thread:
Sorry, I didn't see that. I will post any future comments in the other thread. Although I will say I think it goes beyond a few people getting arrested.

OK, I went to the other thread and I think this is a similar issue but it is specific to one site. I haven't been kicked off, they are just limiting the money avenues. Am I worried, not really. But we need to all let them know this is not acceptable. They need to work with us and not go running because of possible legislation.
