    also, noting that i requested this check on the 15th, it looks like its taking 2 weeks for checks...
    Good news that a check was received. Bad news that it was from that processor. Do an internet search on them, particularly their pending lawsuit by the FTC...and then run to the bank & deposit immediately!

    A wire transfer held up in customs? The BOFA guy is talking about the Internet police?

    you received a check, how was it delivered, dhl?

    Yea i hope all you emotional bitches that couldn't wait 10 business days to see if people started seeing wires get in trouble when sb can prove it has your accounting details and sent and can confirm you received a wire in the future.

    not much more info after a long conv with sportsbook

    checks -- supposedly only under 2K currently but hopefully that will change next week

    wires -- some of the early ones "test" ones - like my original have not been seen and they dont have much answer -- to cancel and resend could take weeks

    Bottom Line - I think they are trying to figure it all out and some things are working -- who knows though if anything goes wrong in the next couple weeks -- glad to see you guys getting your funds -- much better than debating if i was a big liar on my one little one - I almost wish my money would have been put back in my account and got the 5% and then withdrew

    Enjoy your weekend everyone - esp now that we have some results

    10 Days now for wire on 21st fellas.

    Its a solid 10 days for wire now!

    Kevin Miller: $1,300.00 was sent on 3/21
    Kevin Miller: $1,300.00
    Kevin Miller: After they have been sent, these international wires actually take 10 business days to show up. If they have not appeared 15 business days after the date they were sent, please do not hesitate to contact us again and we will trace the transaction.
    You: now its a solid 10 days huh
    You: so it wont be in my account till next week
    Kevin Miller: Probably not...no
    You: why does it keep being pushed up in days
    You: last week it was 3-5
    You: then 5-7
    You: then 7-10
    You: now 10
    You: what is it next
    You: 15??? lol
    Kevin Miller: This is a new method... we are only learning how long it takes now... preferably it would arrive the same day. We dont add on days to annoy you.

    what happened was i hit a parlay on feb 11, requested on the 12th. waited a few days, the money was redeposited with a bonus, and i rerequested withdrawal for 15k by check on the 15th (if i remember correctly, at that time, it was the only option), and then another smaller one for 1k (was going to play around with it, but decided not to). received word on wednesday that the check for 1k had gone out by regular mail. i immediately called and was told it was DHL and would get here within 3-5 days. i demanded a tracking number and was told he would email me with it within 48 hours (never got one by the way). instead the check came friday morning.

    i got an email yesterday for the 15k check, saying it was sent by regular mail too. i figure it will arrive either tomorrow or monday. that is, unless something went screwy because of the amount.

    just looked at the FTC filing against interbill. why am i so unsurprised that this is the operation SB.com chose to handle its checks?

    http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2007/01/interbill.htm

    some of you guys might want tonot check with your bank so much, and ask so many questions about wires.

    that is how red flags go up, it has happened before exactly for the same reason.

    the more you ask where it is, the more suspicion gets brought to it.

    and the BkofAma guy, said no more than 5 days for teh wire, which makes sense.

    the time it is taking past the 5 days, is time(delay) in regards to the porcessors, not the wire travel time.

    Congrats to all those who have received their payments. It must be sweet aftre thi s mess.

    I know we're getting off topic since things are looking up. I was just wondering what people like Trun, scooter, etc. would've done if the money didn't come? I mean, we're talking about 100 grand + here.... That would give me the initiative to fly myself to whereever their HQ is to personally get the money...

    I'm sure this month was probably nerve racking for you guys, no? 100 gs.. I applaud everyone for winning that much.. please, share your picks when this debacle is all over..

    So from what I am reading it's best to request wire withdraws under the about 2000 right now correct? I have about 5400 in there now. I haven't done anything yet with the funds. Sounds like I better take them in small amounts so they will go through rather than one big amount......??

    How does anyone know that interbill is the processor? If thats the case then we have more to worry about than not getting our money. Theyre a bunch of crooks.

    well, the check was good enough for me to get cash in hand. i guess this is what we're going to be reduced to, fly-by-night processors with a history of alleged fraud.

    the check has interbill as the payor and the dhl origination was interbill in vegas.

    I called chase. basically what they said is that they would send me a dispute letter. I put down all the charges I want to dispute and send it back to them. Andthen I give them a couple of weeks to see if the merchant responded. So for now I've asked them to send me out the letter. If the letter arrives before I get the money, I might still send it in. AFter my more recent withdrawals I'm owed jusht shy of 100k, and very little of that was winnings. So i can't wait indefinitely for these bastards to get thier act together.

    It makes no sense to me that the wires sent in the "test" batch all got lost, but they continued to send out the other wires. I don't get the sense that Jazette really cares if takes a week, a month, or two months tog et us paid. Thier attitude still seems to be as long as they show minimal effort we should show maximum patience

    maybe some help here.

    Hey everyon. Found this article and was maybe thinking we should fill out the complaint form and see what happens.. Any thing we can do at this point should be considered a option.

    Let me know what you guys think......

    Good luck all......

    Sounds like maybe some good news.........

    the reason for checks is this:

    in the past, i had all my withdrawals sent via wire, but then i moved and there was an address mismatch with the payment processor at that time (citadel). so SB would sent it out, and i wouldnt get it, and i would call and be told it was sent. further, SB told me i would have to confirm my information with citadel even though i had already done it with SB. seeing as i have moved again within the past month, i am more comfortable having them deliver a check than waiting for a wire (after i send more information into a shady processor).

    Has anyone received confirmation that a check has actually been sent and will be received in 3-5 bus. days? If so, lets get that date and make sure the check clears. I'm not sure that just because the wire processor appears to work that the check processor might not still be BS.

    Also, can anyone trace the wire source? Is it WC Wire? Supposedly we would have address and phone # info on the source. Although, I completely agree with the above emails to NOT CALL banks and keep this whole thing underground. We will see most of our wires by next week I would hope.

    I much prefer checks to bank wires. The problem with wires, is that they can get lost. Trun is the perfect example. No one can really tell him when the money was sent, where the money is, or if and when he will get it.

    With a check it is very easy, if it was sent, you can call DHL and find out it it was really sent, and if so, where is it.

    It's much easier to deal with lsot checks then lost wires. And if the wires are going to take 10-15 business days to arrive, what value do they have. Not to mention the fact that most people seem to be getting hit with a $25 wire fee from thier bank.

    If you are requesting wires over $5000, I'd send them to foreign accounts or to friends with foreign accounts. Seems about 1/5 wires from offshore have been blocked lately.

    Canadian banks receive them with a smile and in about a day.

    wouldnt you still have the same problem of getting them into the US from a foreign account? i mean i guess you could fly there, withdraw the funds and strap it to your body for the plane trip or take it back in chunks less than 10K...

    I got a 9,000 dollar wire. Wells Fargo didn't seem to have a problem with it. I didn't want that amount, but they grouped my payouts together and sent it all as one. Question though, online it still has the wire as pending, but I can use the money from it, should I be worried about the wire failing somehow? If I was to take 9,000 in cash and deposit it I wouldn't be able to touch it for a day, but I can use the money from the wire.

    i hope sb didn't fk me here, i figured the under 5k thing was a good idea when i requested my wire so i did it for like 4500, and then requested a 2k check the next day... good old sb decided to convert the check to a wire and sent the sum out together

    In my experience it is typical for incoming EFTs and wires to show as pending for a day then be engulfed into the account. If it's still pending on Monday, I'd be concerned, but until then it's completely normal.

    For those of you that have had wires hit, and people that do in the future, what banks do you have? Is it just me or does it seem like Wells Fargo maybe the only one accepting the wires?

    I spoke with BofA yesterday and the rep told me that they would not for any reason hold or turn away a international wire. He said as soon as the funds have been recieved by BofA I will have access to them.
