    this about right?
    I'm sure BetCris is seperating into two different companies, so that if DOJ comes in and seizes all their funds, ala neteller, they still will have their international customers unfrozen in a seperate entity. Frankly this doesn't sound good to me. It's almost if they truely believe they may have all their American funds siezed at some point.

    You're better off doing a moneygram express payment. Much easier.

    Visa credit/debit card worked fine. $500 limit though.

    I think it all depends on the bank. Some are more stringent on blocking against merchants with gaming codes. Unfortunately for me, my bank blocks all of these sites.

    it works, but takes a while to setup and they only allow a $300 per month. Not good enough for me.

    Forget bookmaker.com!

    here is the issue: do you realize the amount of risk playing at that site? they spliced off the U.S. players there so if they get shutdown/arrested/funds seized, their 'betCRIS' is still running and running well.

    I'd go somewhere else.

    $$$ in my wallet. What only allows $300... Xpresswallet or Bookmaker? B/c Bookmaker says the maximum is $1000.

    Call up Cris to get account numbers. Then take it to a MG location and do an Express Payment using the information they gave you. Cris will probably give you a 10% bonus with it. 3k max. $9.95 fee, which Cris covers. Painless (assuming you have an MG location near you).

    Does moneygram usually ask irritating questions like

    How do you know this person?
    Why does this person need 3k...?

    that sort of thing?

    red I just used WesternUnion and I assume it's the same thing. First off, the person asking you about it works at a supermarket so I don't think they'll get too detailed. I gave some nice lil cute 17 year old blondie $2200 last week and she said nothing with WU (I assume MG is the same)

    It's actually very simple... although the initial circumstances seem sketch. They have you send the money to a name in a weird location. Probably to avoid having it traced by you know who. Each deposit is actually going to be a different name... even weirder. I did this with BOOKMAKER/CRIS and it was smooth although next time I'm coming back home to the Greek.

    Once you do it you call them with your confirmation #, the amount of fees you paid, etc. and then give it about 15 minutes and poof your funded.

    $2200 costs me about $114 to send ... so they credited me $2314.

    No. It's express payment, so they think you're paying a bill. But if it's over 1k, you need to show your drivers license.

    Thanks. I understand those mechanics...I've just heard people start talking about how the processors have started asking questions. What you say does make sense and alleviate my concerns. A 17 year old is going to want my date-rapist-looking ass away from her asap. It helps with being left alone or getting what I reasonably want. Incidentally, being able to fart on command helps with getting people to leave you alone...

    My cousin used to do this with bodog. He used to send money to Random Person in the Philippines or Malaysia...

    it entertained me to no end.

    since i did it so late Bookmaker said that it should go through in the morning. Dont really care dont need the money right away just wanted some extra money for College hoops. everything seemed smoothe. went to the local gas station filled out the info it was quik and easy took like 10 min did a $300 deposit just to see how it goes and how it works. If this all goes good i think i like this alot better then Neteller

    I don't think it'll go wrong. I just personally felt safer sending a bill payment rather than sending it to a random person in Nicaragua or the Philippines. Fees are lower (even though you get it back in your account). MG bill payment is $9.95. Higher limits too, if one wants to deposit as much as possible. It's all just mental, I guess, but I felt like it seemed more legit sending a bill payment rather than sending it to some dude in Manila.

    Money Gram is better then Neteller.

    I put a $300 deposit costed just $10 but bookmaker covers that and you get 10% bonus and a Free march madness bracket which is 10$.

    It was fast and simple.
