WSEX is still blaming processors and the US banking climate for the extreme delays. The following generic statement was provided to a player that's been waiting since April 2011 for $1,979:
WSEX Sportsbook: "We acknowledge that in a previous conversation, either verbally or written, you were promised every effort to have your entire or part of your withdrawal shipped to you by ending of the year. While the lack of processing companies and US corresponding banks continue to be the dominant factors for our delayed processing, we will continue through out the next few months to accomplish all the clients who were not addressed during the past couple of months.
Every month commencing January 2012, a maximum value of checks as specified by our financial personnel, will be processed. Once a payment is completed for you, an email notification will be sent, allowing you sufficient time to make arrangements for the courier delivery. At this time, I wish to thank you for your continued correspondence and the patience you have extended throughout these challenging times. Our customer support will always be available to address any further queries. Again, I cannot apologize enough for the continued delays and the grave inconvenience caused to you."
WSEX is currently slow-paying 123 players $738,852. The longest outstanding request was made in October of 2009.
