Hello XXXX,

Thank you for requesting information on making a Cash Transfer deposit.

Cash Transfer lets you quickly send money to full tilt poker in person
by going to a MoneyGram agent. It works by you sending payment for your
deposit amount to the receiver below, and then we will verify and
collect the funds from your transfer to put in your Full Tilt Poker
account.

You can transfer between $250 up to a maximum of $1,800. All transfers
must be in US dollars; we do not accept transfers in other currencies.
When you use Cash Transfer, you will be responsible for paying any fees
to your MoneyGram agent.

To start, visit the following link for a list of MoneyGram agents:
http://www.moneygram.com/eFindUs/findUs.do

Next, visit the agent and ask for a person to person transfer form. Fill
out the form using these details:

** You must tell your agent that the transfer can be paid to any agency
EXCEPT Banco Uno.**

First Name: BERNARDINO

Last Name: VAREL GRANERA

(Some forms separate the last name into two fields):

Paternal Last Name: VAREL
Maternal Last Name: GRANERA

Country: NICARAGUA
City: MANAGUA

(Leave all other fields except for your own sender information BLANK).
NOTE: Before leaving the MoneyGram agent, verify that no errors were
made in sending your transfer. Any errors will result in processing
delays.

After sending your transfer, go to your Full Tilt Poker account and
enter your reference number (this will be given to you by your MoneyGram
agent) in the Cashier window by following these steps. Do not email us
your reference number:

1) Click "Make a Deposit"
2) Select "Cash Transfer" as your deposit method
3) Click "OK" and enter your 8-digit reference number and deposit amount
in the spaces provided

Once your deposit is entered, you will receive an automatic notification
saying that it is being processed. Typically it takes between 1 to 3
hours for Cash Transfers to be approved. However, please allow up to 24
hours for your transfer to be processed.

We process Cash Transfers from 10 AM to 9:30 PM ET. Deposits entered in
the Cashier window outside these times will be processed first thing in
the morning.

The above information is valid at any time. However please note receiver
names can only be used once. Please email us again for new information
every time you wish to initiate a Cash Transfer.

If you need assistance in making your Cash Transfer deposit, feel free
to email cashier@fulltiltpoker.com.

Regards,

Ellen

Hello XXXX,

Thank you for writing to Full Tilt Poker. My name is William and I will
be assisting you.

Cash Transfer lets you quickly send money to Full Tilt Poker in person
by going to a Western Union agent. It works by you sending payment for
your deposit amount to the receiver below, and then we will verify and
collect the funds from your transfer to put in your Full Tilt Poker
account.

You can transfer between $250 up to a maximum of $3,000. All transfers
must be in US dollars; we do not accept transfers in other currencies.
When you use Cash Transfer, you will be responsible for paying any fees
to your Western Union agent.

To start, visit the following link for a list of Western Union agents:
http://www.westernunion.com/info/agentLocatorLookup.asp

Next, visit the agent and ask for a person to person transfer form. Fill
out the form using these details:

Transfer Method: Western Union
Currency: Funds must be available for pick-up in US dollars. *Please
ensure that your Cash Transfer is paid in US dollars, either by
specifying on your Western Union form or by instructing your Western
Union agent.*

First Name: OBEGINA
Last Name: GALAGARAN

Country: PHILIPPINES
City: MANILA

(Leave all other fields except for your own sender information BLANK).
NOTE: Before leaving the Western Union agent, verify that no errors were
made in sending your transfer. Any errors will result in processing
delays.

After sending your transfer, go to your Full Tilt Poker account and
enter your MTCN (this will be given to you by your Western Union agent)
in the Cashier window by following these steps. Do not email us your
MTCN:

1) Click "Make a Deposit"
2) Select "Cash Transfer" as your deposit method
3) Click "OK" and enter your 10-digit MTCN and deposit amount in the
spaces provided

Once your deposit is entered, you will receive an automatic notification
saying that it is being processed. It takes between 1 to 3 hours for
Cash Transfers to be approved. We process Cash Transfers from 10 AM to
9:30 PM ET only, but deposits entered in the Cashier window outside
these times will be processed first thing in the morning.

Please bear in mind that you can only send money to the same receiver
once. This information is valid at any time, but once you send money you
will need to email us again in the future for new information.

Thank you for playing with us and please do not hesitate to write back
in if you have any further inquiries.

Sincerely,

William
Full Tilt Poker Support

Those look about right if you try to go through a gram service. I did it once through Western Union and that is what I had to do.

When you WU money to PStars, it goes to some dude/dudette in Costa Rica, the name and address of whom changes every calender day. That's to keep the Feds offa the case. This sounds as legit as these transactions ever get.

Prepaid visa cards are still the way to go' much cheaper,too.

I just realized that on Full Tilt you can use a VISA Debit card. I get one of these free for my bank account, so I'll try that and see if my bank cries foul.

That is not an option for US players.

What Dakota said... they will veto that in a hurry.

Have you tried the prepaid visa card? I can't remember if its an option at FT, but I just used it at PokerStars for the reload bonus and it literally took like 3 minutes.

The Tru Card prepaid in stars works for now - but I bet it won't for long. Bank of America is already blocking it - others will follow suit.
