    The credit card processor isn't the company cutting the checks and I believe only Europeans can get some of their money credited back to a credit card. I'm not positive on this but pretty sure.

    why do they send you an email saying your money has been sent to the processor and then when you track the package..its just sitting there for days waiting for them to actually send it... to all the ones who have gotten the email about it being sent to dhl...

    hahahahahaha now that's some funny sh*t... F*ck it the further from the US a bank is the better... Remember it is banks NOT us players that are.... well not supposed to do this... Beirut is where a lot of big investors (Saudis and Kwaitte's) keep their bones so there is big money there for sure...

    Hey can I have the name of the Bank..? My dad will get a kick out of this..

    Thanks

    I got a dhl package on the way but I can't track it because the lady on the phone wanted the origination zip code...if someone wants to PM me that would be great. I've had no troubles with fedex trackings they usually get picked up 1 day after the label is printed.

    Be patient. The same thing happened to me, however today I called DHL and I was told my package will be delivered tomorrow. I guess the new law is affecting sportsbook.com and some of the other books much differently than us. If they did not want to pay us they could find a much easier way not to pay us.

    I thought I would give a bit more insight into why you have or may see this happen more... It's smart for books/processors to do this... It is like the Swiss of the middle east... It is tax free and if you give the lebanesse business they can careles what you are doing and unless the DOJ shows up with jet fighters those banks don't budge...

    Not one bank went under during hte civil war...

    Yes, it looks like they may have things together (cross my fingers). I also made 2 deposits in the last week and a half and received an email stating the checks were sent Fed Ex.

    ...but then again we're not cool with domestic US processors who eventually get shaken out of the business or else get busted while holding a bunch of our & Sportsbook.com's money. I guess I'll take even Lebanon over that scenario, because I feel strongly that the Feds will continue to sniff out processors on US soil & seize their accounts, like they did with BetUs in Utah. Lesser of 2 evils.

    Old School Poster still receiving checks!!

    Hey guys, I didnt read too far back in the last posts, But I was on this thread back in March with withdrawal problems. I got all that money back in June. I have since received 3 checks by DHL AND Fedex. It usually takes 1 month to get it. I dont get any confirmation numbers or even emails, I just wait and it comes.. So if you dont mind waiting for freaking ever.. this site is not bad..


    p.s. My checks are all cut here in the USA.. not Beirut!!

    p.p.s. If you dont believe me then just check my old school posts back a while ago when I was freaking out praying they would pay me my moola.. They did and I still play with them.. Just dont keep much money with them only what I can afford to lose...

    Good luck and happy waiting.. Any Q's, just hit me up PM or post a reply..

    Hope this helps..

    Big Razor

    Sportsbook.com (SBR rating D+) pushes payment date back for non-US players. The Sportsbook.com family previously told non-US players in June that they would begin processing their withdrawals in the middle of July. Sportsbook.com tells SBR they are now targeting the middle of August and are considering using an e-wallet such as Neteller or Moneybookers. Some players have waited for payment for over five months and are rightfully upset that the sportsbook will not take the necessary steps to give them their money. Sportsbook.com claims that the new payment processors they have acquired will only deliver payment to users in the United States.

    they definately can pay us Internationals but they choose not to. It is their choice not to as they are still a merchant of Neteller but won't use it. This is Fact as I have e-mailed Neteller to verify this.

    This is total speculation, but I wonder if part of the problem sportsbook.com is having with internatioanl players is that they aren't supposed to have any. As some of you will recall (please correct me if I ma wrong) but when Jazette bought the books form Sportingbet, part of the deal was that they would only take US customers. Then arrangements were made for Canadianms to be moved into sports.com. But my impression at the time was that they weren't suppose dot have nay players from outside North America. I wonder if Sportingbet is now demanding that jazette get rid of all thier non-American players.

    To all of you who are still waiting and bitching. Remember I did my share of waiting and bitching, from the first of June until a few weeks ago. I went through a period of feeling totally frustrated and helpless.
    Well after reading responses from players who got paid, I started feeling better about my situation. I adopted a patient yet positive attitude. I got my check, deposited it, and today it cleared.
    So if you are feeling like I did be patient. Bitching and moaning would only make you feel frustrated and helpless.
    Just returning the favor from those of you who helped me to be patient.

    Thanks

    That is spot on Marc, but unfortunately I never knew about that rule till it was too late. They obviously screwed up letting us continue betting with them but that shouldn't stop them from paying up and closing our accounts.

    5 months... No Progress

    I keep seeing a bunch of you complaining that your deposit was a month late and personally I wish mine was a month late. I made two withdrawals on the 16th of MARCH and I still haven't had any results. I don't think they have any intentions of ever paying me my withdrawals. It's been nearly 5 months and I have persistently asked them about my deposits. They come back with the answer everytime, "Please allow us 48 hours and we will notify you of an update via e-mail." I have never once been notified by e-mail. The customer service has told me 4 different days the payments were actually sent and after the fourth they "performed a trace that would take 10 business days to locate and reissue a check if necessary," That was in May... It's August and I still have 0% progress. Sportsbook.com is as crooked as they come and I would not recommend them even to an enemy. The worst feeling of all is they are literally robbing me and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it...

    Checks from Beirut

    Anybody successfully cash one of the checks from Beirut, Lebanon. This beats it all. The checks are fake...I went to like 10 banks and even AceCashExpress trying to get the check cashed. Eventually, the Ace people kept my check b/c the ABA number is only 7 digits instead of 8, thus, making the check counterfeit or at least uncashable. Called sportsbook and they confirmed that they checks can't be cashed and that they would send me another one. Guess I will be waiting another few months....so pissed!!!
