Got this email from stars. I will give credit were credit is due, this seems like a decent compensation. This 20% bonus is not something that has to be earned either..it's a direct deposit to your account.
The headache of getting my money is..well..a headache, but this is nice because I deposited this money to earn that reload bonus with awhile back and am now withdrawing what I deposited. So, I already earned 20% on that $600, now I'm getting another 20%.
In recognition of the inconvenience you have suffered with the delay in receiving your eCheck cashout we have credited your account with a bonus of 20% of the requested cashout amount. This amounts to a credit of $120.00 for your $600.00 eCheck cashout requested on 22-Apr-08. This credit can be found in your PokerStars Cashier History as "eCheck compensation". You may check this by logging on to the PokerStars Cashier followed by clicking on the History button. These funds are available to you now without any kind of restrictions or conditions.
Regarding your missing cashout, we have been working hard with the processor to resolve this situation. The processor has informed us that the cashouts should start hitting players' bank accounts as of Monday May 12, or at the very latest on Tuesday, May 13. Please note that we are processing the oldest cashouts first so it is likely to take the next 5 - 10 business days for us to clear the backlog.
If, despite all the assurances by the supplier, there won't be any concrete evidence that players start receiving their credits by end of day on Tuesday, May 13, we will then cancel all cashouts and re-credit players' accounts. Players will then be invited to use alternative withdrawal options including paper checks. Should such a re-credit take place you will receive further communication from us.
If you have any questions, please contact us at any time.
