Ok well then it does look like I got shafted, I have done some searches on the internet and seems other people are getting the same message, they just say their coming back, but thats it. If it makes you all feel any better I did not deposit there, I put in for a deposit request a week before they went down and almost followed through, thank goodness I did not, I would have lost that too. Now I'm going to see if I have any contacts in peru, I have a friend who has family there, maybe a couple phone calls, I can't get my hands on them, but they sure as hell can. Its amazing cause from what I read on the net tropical poker was always on the up and up, good response from customer service and I heard people were drawing their money out with no problem.
If they do by some miracle come back online I think the other poster is right, people are going to bail out, but think its safe to say that they stole the money. If it makes you all feel any better I never did make a real money
deposit, their rules state that first you have to make a 50 dollar deposit, then and only then can you request a with draw and you have to wait 2 days, plus on top of that you have to make the deposit and with draw in the same month, that caught my eye as weird.
Rule of thumb if you ever deposit at a site and they want you to go to western union to make a deposit, run like hell. I will take the other posters advice, stick to full tilt or bodog.
