It must be sad. But I think if you contact the support service and can tell them the amount of money that was on the balance in your account, then they should return your funds to you.I entered after a while on a platform that had money and found that due to inactivity the money was confiscated, what do you think about this?
They can put this in T&C but there's no legal basis for taking someone's funds for inactiviy so it wouldn't mean anything that this paragraph might exist.Check out the site's terms and conditions and see if inactivity is addressed anywhere. Unfortunately it probably is...
I hope it was only a small amount of money. Good luck.
So how long you would have to stay away from whatever site for such measures to be taken placeI entered after a while on a platform that had money and found that due to inactivity the money was confiscated, what do you think about this?
Yes inactive account may be normal but missing funds not.It is pretty common, that sites require customers to log on with some regularity like at least every 12 month for the account to remain active. Normally they will contact the customer in advance before closing an account, but maybe OP did not see the email? It does seem weird though, if his account was still active but the funds missing. Maybe OP could inform us:
a) which site he is talking about
b) the amount of money, that was missing
c) If he ever made a deposit, or if the money came solely from bonuses and freeroll winnings
Yes inactive account may be normal but missing funds not.
Doesnt matter if it's common or not still illegalIncorrect.
It is quite common (or was quite common) for sites to apply an 'administration fee' to an account that has been inactive for 'x' amount of time. That amount of time varied between sites that were (are) doing this.
I know that some site on the iPoker network did this (ie bet365). I believe Partypoker did too. It wouldn't surprise me if 888Poker still does this.
I actually just received an email the other day, letting me know that my account will be inactive for a period of 365days in the next 10days. (that was SportsBetting << I keep telling myself I am going to play on there one day)
I think you should apply for its release.I entered after a while on a platform that had money and found that due to inactivity the money was confiscated, what do you think about this?
Many sites have had this policy and it is a horrible one if you ask me. I think it is just an easy way to take funds from people who have died instead of giving them to the estate and heirs of the owner. And getting a little from the absentminded as well.
You could still sue them for taking your money.Of course this is not correct, but I think many poker players had a notification that you should have agreed to or read and clarify for yourself about poker activity at pokerstars. I think many people signed this and ticked it and read it and it says that you need to be active or withdraw funds but this is very bad
