        I can't believe this...

        Finally, after a great month and being able to cashout some pretty nice BANK of all things has frozen my account...not for returns or for insufficient funds but for funds being transferred/deposited into my account. Currently they are holding 2 of my "winnings" transfers and have rejected 2 others. The bank manager explained to me that the only payments the bank will accept is a paycheck from my employer and will not condone any other types of electronic payments. The bank is ScotiaBank.

        I need to open a new account at another bank ASAP - if knows of a bank in Canada that does accept online deposits and payouts (incl. using eWallet accounts) with min. reservation - PLEASE...let me know..I hope to be able to have payouts that were rejected transferred to the new account as soon as I can.

        Soda, see if one of your casinos can give you an invitation to Use My wallet. that will clear your wins and give you time to find a new bank.

        thanks UseMyWallet different from other eWallet accounts...below is more details about my bank issue.

        the bank manager at my branch from the beginning did not like "eCheck" and their "Misc" that they used to describe their transactions. And then totally freaked when I made a deposit from EcoCard and it's bank is from the Netherlands. I explained to her that they are both legit companies, with eCheck (InstaDebit) residing right here in Toronto, Canada. She told me she had requested their 'International Banking" department to investigate the the wire transfers and companies involved, and only after she has received approval from the department would she "unfreeze" my account but will still continue to reject/block any future transactions from either of them. Furthermore, she could not give me a time frame but warned me it is a long process. Dumbfounded I asked her "So what do I do for cash?"...reply..."If you need $50...I will release $50 to you now and tomorrow if you need more I'll release $50 again." Is this legal?? Seriously I'm so frustrated....

        Wow - coming down to earth which a huge crunch.  Thats unbelievable that a bank is turning away money from a personal account.  What a nerve.

        Hope you have some luck sorting out your winnings - sorry I can't help with info.

        Soda, i hope you get it worked out with your bank. As far as "use my wallet", it is just another good ewallet so you would have the same prob. cuz its your bank not you ewallet, and another thing is that "use my wallet' is for US players only, and your from Canada so you wouldn't be able to get it. Good luck with everything.
