With just 24 days to go before banks are required to comply with the UIGEA, I was greeted with this unfortunate message when I went to cash out my daily $300 from ePassporte today:
US Bank Account
This functionality is temporarily disabled. Our backend ACH processor is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please check back later.
I wonder if
technical difficulties mean,
our USA processor just bumped us to comply with UIGEA and we're scrambling to find another. I have about $2,000 left of the large sum I've been pulling out at $300/day for quite a while, I hope I can get the rest out. I also have a dozen $300 withdraws in the “pipeline” that have left my ePassporte account but haven't shown up in my bank account.
Ok, so now would be the panic time. Online poker is about to collapse in the USA. Get your money out now. :)
Update: ePassporte is working again, for now. Still, less than a month left before full-on UIGEA.
