I had never heard about RakeBack before today, and I just stumbled upon it by chance while doing some daily poker research.
I already have an account with FTP and (after searching threw CC forums) I know that I can't add-on the rakeback code, nor can I delete my current account at FT and re-install..

From what I understand my only solution is to sign-up under a family-members name, but this is where I'm confused. I pay for deposits with my bank card, which is in my name... If I signed up under a family members name, wouldn't I need to use a card under the name of that family member?... This might not even be possible for me :eek:

I'd really like to use a rake-back, I need some kind of edge when playing online and getting 37% of my rake-money back seems like a pretty good edge.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The fact that the names are different from the deposit and withdraw methods compared to the accounts name is fine. I don't think they even do the address verification, cause all you have to do is type in numbers. I have given a friend 50 bucks many times and had him deposit for me. The only time they get funny is if you use the same deposit method for various accounts. So if you create a new account on the same site and deposit with the same card you used on your old one, just make sure you stay wth the new account and don't deposit on the old one anymore with the same card.

Okay, so I just use my friend/family member name for the purpose of cashing out? I.E; they will send the check in the name of that person, so it needs to be a name of someone I can have cash the check for me? So it would probably be a wise idea to get permission from this person?

The other question is; are the rakebacks really good/worth it?... Of course from what I have read on them they are great, but I wanted to get some opinions from CC members, people I can trust.

If yopu like money they're good. Be careful with checks if you live in the US too, things are getting funny.

I am also curious how I can get rakeback on my FT account. How do I set it up so I don't get banned?

^ I'm still not 100% sure on how I should go about doing this, so I'd like to know too.

How does the whole thing work... Can I just sign up using the same name (I'm sure there are more than one people with the same first/last name in a state) but a different address?

Anyone got enough free-time to do a step-by-step of how it all works?... setting up the extra account, putting cash in, and cashing out, that is.

What do I do... just sign up an account in my family members name, and then E-mail FTP and ask them if it is okay for me to deposit money into that account using MY bank card?

Okay, I have someones name I can put an account in... my ONLY question now is... should I first ask FT if I can use the same credit card (that I've used for my original account)for this other FT account?? Or can I just use it without worrying about it.

FT will advise you that you are only permitted to have one account.

^ But this wouldn't be my account, it would be my friends account with funds deposited by my card. That isn't plausible?
