However, the quite well worded response you gave them made me laugh. Who knows what is going on there now. Probably for the best that you are "banned" because there is no reason for playing there with all the scandal business
I actually received a response at 4:00 this morning letting me know that my account has officially been closed "because we need to certify your personal information."
Hmm. . . What could I have done that would flag me? I hadn't made a deposit - so there's no question on where those funds came from. I hadn't requested a withdrawl - The most I ever had was $7 in my account. The only thing that I had done there recenly was played over my limits trying to turn a quick buck. I sat down at a .25/.50 or .50/1 limit game. The cards had been really crappy, AK high to mid to high pairs were winning most of the hands, but people were playing them aggressively. If I recall correctly I ended up losing a good chunk of what I had left on trip 5s or 6s vs trip 9s (both were pocket pairs). Strangely enough, that's the way I end up going out of most of the freerolls - can't lay down a hand I should .
The only thing that I can think of is that I sat down at the wrong table and those guys are the ones that are being investigated, and I'm considered part of it because I "dumped" $5 into someone's account. Seems rather far fetched to me, but I guess they'll see what they want to see.
As far as the scandal goes - I agree, I think I'm much better off not having an account there, but I certainly wouldn't send them all that personal information. If I had a few hundred or thousand dollars, you bet I would send that information in. What's left in there isn't worth submitting all that information. I certainly wouldn't trust them with that information.
