Can't Make a Deposit WHAT IS GOING ON?

6 replies • Last post

Help! I am getting a little worried about something, and I wonder if my CL-Friends can help or if this has ever happened to you?

I requested two "pay my card" withdrawals from Miami Club over the past few weeks, and I have not received either payment. I spoke with someone on chat this morning, and she said I will receive my first payment this week and the second payment will arrive next week. They said "pay my card" will typically take five to seven business days. If I had known, I probably would have requested a check.

Today I tried to make a deposit at another casino, because there was a nice deposit match. I used to put money on a Visa Account Now where you load money onto the card, but a few months ago I started using my regular check card associated with my bank account (IS THAT BAD?I don't know?) I am now REALLY worried, because I was turned down to deposit at two casinos. I double checked my numbers, and everything is accurate. Now I am REALLY REALLY worried. Is the bank starting to refuse these transactions? Did I do something really stupid?

Anyone? I don't know Sad

american banks do get scared if you reverse credits like that. Pay2card is basically credit reversal. Your bank will go "wtf" if you reversed more than what you have deposited so it is possible that your bank froze your card for security purposes or whatnot

Thank you, Eric.

The drama continued last night as I tried to pay a bill and my card was declined. I was able to pay the bill using my routing and account number from my checking, but it would not take my card. The strange thing was, the bank DID let me take out cash form an ATM machine earlier that day.

I called the bank, and it was the transaction from out of the U.S. that flagged my card for security reasons. I had to give my banker a bunch of information, then go over the last 10 or so transactions with her, then all was good.

I have to say this really did freak me out, but I guess this is what happens in this day and age of identify theft. Just very strange it took them this long to decide that ONE transaction would flag my account. I told them that "I do a lot of Ebay," which is the truth. Smile Girl

I have that happen to me all the time, Hope. It is a security thing for the US to ensure that our cards aren't stolen, as it's really weird to have them process international transactions. Any time I leave the country I have to make sure my credit card companies and bank know, otherwise I get frozen out.

Once a few months ago, I got the check card information theft. But, I didn't get ripped off because my bank automatically blocked some suspicious attempts (trying to pay like $10 repeatedly somewhere in Singapore... or something)

Another very bad experience (well over 1 year ago) was actually with Slots Inferno (the bunch of RTG scams in Costa Rica). At that time, I didn't know about the danger hooked up by scam casinos, or maybe I didn't find out these casinos rogue yet. So, I tried to pay $100 via Visa credit card, but, it didn't work, probably because the card company just blocked the transactions with Slots Inferno. So, I went to the Live Support and asked what I should do.

Could you guess what they told me ??

Firstly telling me that I could absolutely feel safe, then, they asked me the card numbers and the 3-digit number on back side of credit card(!!!) I was kind of shocked and just stopped there.

Anyway, it is good that banks are equipped with various security methods, but hopefully with convenience too Smile

I was just kind of freaked out, because I was using that card for like two to three months and all of a sudden they flag/block this ONE transaction? I guess that doesn't make me feel very good - how long it took them if someone else HAD been using my card, lol.

The only other time this happened to me is when I traveled to Florida and spent money using my check card. They said there was "unusual" activity on my card, because I was in another state.

I don't know if we should feel good about that or if it is just another invasion of our own privacy - I don't know how I feel about calling my bank every time I want to go on vacation or make a transaction involving another country.

We do have to be extra careful these days, coolsongs! There are so many scams out there these days, which is also why the banks have to also be extra diligent.
