        Not only that, but I know many people who still make deposits through echecks. Seems to be a state by state thing from what people have said though.

          Last time I checked there were several legal (well more like legal loophole) options for US players to deposit onto Pokerstars... If your having issues depositing just contact support, I'm sure they will be happy to help you send them money!

            Went through all this, that is why I am a whitestar for the monthumbup: My state declined echeck transfers in January, took me all of feb to get it straighten out(could of been quicker, but i was not in a hurry to send wu) then all of a sudden in March they accepted echecks from my state again, yay. Also it has already cleared my account, so no worries, of going -10.84 and a deposit not going through. Anyways it just seems wacky the way the deposits are working. I called my bank of many many years, told them exactly what I was doing, they said no worries, it's your money. They said they would never decline anything I authorize. Anyways that's just what they said. Best of Luck in all. Hunt2day

              Biggie, have you resolved your problem? Transfer by Echeck worked fine for me back in January.

              Two possible solutions (assuming they are legal):

              1. Have a friend on PS transfer funds to you. Then you send him or her a personal check.

              2. Try opening a small checking account at an out-of-state bank or credit union. Then transfer funds to your PS account via Echeck from that institution.

              Good luck and hope to see you at the tables.

                What I did was purchase a I.C.E. loadable Visa card from a check cashing place. This was suggested by the Poker Stars Deposit Team. To buy the card and load 40 bucks, it cost me 45 total. The money was instantly deposited to my account with no hassles. It does cost 3 dollars plus whatever more I want to put on the card in the future. You can go on-line and look for I.C.E cards and where your nearest location of where they sell them. Hope this helps and good luck on the tables. Drywallman3umbup:umbup:

                  A surefire way to be able to deposit would be to move to England.

                    netteller is a option I looked into, seemed like a pretty good deal, was about to go that route, than all of a sudden echecks began to work for PS again. All this time that PS would not take echecks, my wife was loading money on ftp, and I loaded money on AP. If you go to pocket 5's forum, they have a permanent thread for site to site money transfers. If anyone has ftp money or AP money I will make money transfers.
                    Good Luck
