Bodog payout problems (at least in Canada)
Recently Bodog became available in Canada
Thought I'd let you know that I'm having no end of problems with cheques from Bodog. I recently had a good run and withdrew 3 times. (Took a couple of months to get the first cheque, they froze my account because I needed to "verify" and somehow that took 3 attempts, funny they don't need to do that to take your deposit but that's another story. To be fair, the last cheque only took 4 weeks to get)
Upon taking the cheques to the bank, they tell me that:
1. It's going to take six weeks before they credit my account
2. It's going to cost me $50 to cash each cheque.
3. I definitely got the feeling from the teller at the bank that I was being suspected of fraud. She said they needed to "investigate" the cheques.
Seems that they neglect to imprint the cheque with the coding at the bottom for account numbers etc.
Customer Service is very prompt, they answer every inquiry, lot's of sorrys etc. But they never say they'll do anything about the issues. I kind of get the "sucks to be you" feeling from them. I've made withdrawals from other sites, and never had this kind of frustration.
Thought I'd let you know, maybe I'm just unlucky.
