This is a discussion on Echecks within the online poker forums, in the Poker Deposits & Withdrawals section; Can some one explain the procedure for purchasing an E-check and sending it to to a poker site.

I avoid eChecks, as they ask for far too much personal identity type information. Recommend purchasing a non-reloadable Card (all-access type) and transferring in that manner. Remember that these sites are on foreign soil. Food for thought.

re: Poker & Echecks
E-check is short for Electronic check. You don't purchase one, you just give your checking account info to the site and they withdraw your deposit directly from your checking account. The only question is, do you trust the site?? Personaly I have been using this option with PokerStars and have not had a bit of trouble although I would be hesitant to use it with some of the smaller less known sites.

It should be fine to give the personal info. Why would pokerstars do you wrong and risk losing business? Lots of other people do it the echeck way.
Still, I'm not gonna give my social security number to someone in another country. That's what echeck requires you to do. I'm going to try the all access card. More hassle, but I think it's more secure.
