Unconfirmed rumor regarding Chexx Inc
      #8991554 - 01/31/07 11:50 AM

I was using the google to try and figure out why my friend's local bank wouldn't let him deposit his check from stars.

Anyways I cam across this from gambling911's forums. The dude only has two posts. Can anyone confirm?

Here's the post. He has two posts. The other isn't overly suspicious.



Quote:


Chexx Inc says no to US player payments

Just came down the wire. As of Feb.2, 2007 Chexx inc. will no longer be processing checks to US players for online gambling companies.

Buddy called Chexx Inc.

Confirmed this rumor. Chexx Inc is pulling out Feb 2. Anything done before that should be fine.

What exactly is Chexx inc? How much (as a %) of check clearing do they do?

What does this mean? Does this means that checks after 2/2 will no longer be an option at all? Or that you can still cash checks at some banks, but not others?

Did we all just move our money off neteller to pokerstars only to have it now be stuck on pokerstars with no way to get it out?

I construe it to mean they will no longer issue checks for Stars after 2/2.

I hope not.

I think a big key here is whether this was known or expected by Stars.

Who are the Stars contacts other than Sciolist?

So if I already have a Chexx Inc check, should I (a) pay a fee to cash it at a check cashing place instead of (b) depositing at my bank where there will be a hold on the check for 2 weeks?

We figured it was just some local bank(1of13) being silly. The letter he got with the return check stated they have had a high number of fraudulent checks from Chexx Inc and wouldn't honor them. he called them and they said they wouldn't try to process it lest it be returned. I encouraged him to close his account.


He went across the street, threw two bones in a new checking account and deposited it. The 5 day hold is nothing new.

This post isn't based on "insider" knowledge, but reading between the lines of Chexx's announcement is seems quite clear to me that they're saying:

1. After Feb 2, they will not issue NEW checks; therefore
2. Any checks you currently have in-hand are good and should be cashed/desposited.

A couple people have posted that their local banks have declined Chexx checks. That's odd but shouldn't dissuade others. You should go ahead and cash your checks...now.

Chexx is also the processor for AP. Dunno about UB and FT. Hope they come up with another solution soon.

I just called WSEX. I made one withdrawal on 1/25 and another on 1/29. The woman said that their processor has been delayed. She said I should have the 1/25 check by this Friday and the 1/29 check by Friday or Monday. She said that they have not received a FedEx tracking number from their processor yet but should recieve one.

This really sucks.

Why are you all panicking? Chexx is not a bank. Its a company who specializing ni providing check writing services for people who need to write checks in large quantities. If this is true, then Stars gets a new company or starts writing out the checks themselves. More costly, but not the end of the world.

hopefully the sites that use chexx inc were aware of a pending pullout of US marker in advance and have taken the appropriate measures to get a new processor...i know, wishful thinking

Yea, all good and well, except for the ones of us that have thousands coming via a chexx check. That can be a little troubling.

Hopefully that's the case. But it certainly won't inspire confidence in online poker for some of the biggest poker sites to literally have NO way to give your money back to you, for however long it takes. And who knows how long it will take them to find another check processor? I expect Chexx is giving up a huge amount of money by taking this action, so it's obvious they felt a serious legal threat existed.

It's not time to panic, but this moves thing up a notch on the seriousness scale.

I think there are three reasons people are panicking.

1)Many of us have relatively large quantities of money in transfer from poker sites with checks that may not be cashable or depositable by the time we get them
----1a)This leads to uncertainty as to whether or not we ever see the funds from the withdraws we have made in the last week

2)There are no viable withdraw methods available anymore if checks are not an option for the time being...EPassporte is a pain in the ass, i just got my small deposits....14 days later. So for those of us who play for a living, and unfortunately(stupidly) have a large amount of money in the sites this puts one more nail in our coffin...

3) This is just one more step toward the perfect storm scenerio that destroys online poker for the US. We are now dangerously close to having no ways to get money to and from sites. If a few more options close to us then we are dead. The sites while promising to work on new options has not released any in the two weeks following the neteller debacle.


While i am not panicking, i am worried about the checks i have in transit. I have faith that the sites that have decided to keep serving us, PS, FT, UB, AP, can work something out. However each day that goes by our situation gets bleaker and bleaker, and this is prior to any of the recent bills regulations kicking in. I think in the sites find a way to circumvent the law, hopefully it will be in time.

Stars cannot simply open a US bank account and generate their own checks. Their funds would be seized almost immediately. This happened a while back with all the advertising money that the poker sites spent. The sites had to jump through a number of hoops to get their commercial money spent. This represents another choke point (like EFT processors) that the government can pressure. I assume that someone from DoJ threatened Chexx by telling them that they believed accepting money from and processing checks for a poker site was considered money laundering by the DoJ and that it might expose them to criminal prosecution. They may well have broadcast this message through industry associations so that no other check processor wants to do business with them either.

It would be possible for Neteller or Stars to issue checks from foreign banks, but those kinds of checks are often subjected to lengthy holds and increased difficulty in getting them cashed. If they are written in foreign currencies, they are especially painful to get cashed.

From, yes. But AFAIK no one will ever be able to stop you from going to the local convenience store and getting a money order to "John Rodriguez" from Costa Rica.

But clearly, a way to get money back is needed as well for those of you who expect to make money off poker. I checked my records on Full Tilt and I've deposited $1000 over the last several months and I have $960 remaining. The trend is upwards in the last month as I've gotten better, but I never envision making significant money from poker. So it's basically just cheap entertainment for me and I'll be happy to just let my money sit there indefinitely.

I hope that sites like Full Tilt will stick around for us Americans who want to do just like I'm doing and churn the funds I already have deposited.

For the "pros" out there I saw a reference to sites getting foreign checking accounts for their VIP customers. That seems to be something the US government could never stop. The poker site wires the money to your foreign account in the Caymans, you check your account online to be satisfied it's safe, and if you need it, wire it from your Cayman's bank to your bank in the US. Your bank in the US will never know where the money came from.

yeah, right. that's the reason stars hasn't been on the forum in a month. if they were to be honest with their players and give them the best possible advice, they would say "GET YOUR MONEY OUT NOW!!!!"

but obviously that's not in their best interests.

Thank you,

So because Chexx won't process checks from stars we should all panic and leave stars for fear that they will take our money?

give me a break. Stars will come out with new ways to withdraw. And the same is true with WSEX.

When the news came out about neteller arrests, i was pretty quick to get all my money out. However, this is a different situation. Stars and wsex have no intention of leaving the US market. And if they do leave in the future i believe both will return all funds like party and pinnacle.

Why are you all panicking? Chexx is not a bank. Its a company who specializing ni providing check writing services for people who need to write checks in large quantities. If this is true, then Stars gets a new company or starts writing out the checks themselves. More costly, but not the end of the world.




Just like Stars getting a new EFT processor.

As long as they still have the same bank account you can cash them. IT doesnt matter who prints the checks. It is the routing number and account number that are important.

For what it's worth, here is the response from UB when asked about still being able to cash these checks:

Hello,

There will be nothing wrong with the check that was sent out. This can still be cashed out with out any problems at any Financial Institute.

Thank you,

Just spoke with a woman from Chexx Inc on the phone. After she demanded to know who I was, I informed her I was a customer of a gaming site who issued their checks. She said I would have to contact the gaming site for the "pullout date, as different sites have different pullout dates."

I then asked if their checks would be honored after the "pullout date." She said "Oh, yes, absolutely. We aren't in the business of not paying people. We do tons of other work that is non-gaming related, like market research and affiliate payments. Our checks are good for 6 months after the date of issue in the US."

Cashing out now... maybe.

Hello there,

After receiving this email today about my cash out being processed via check, I have heard a rumor that chexx will no longer be providing checks to US customers. I am wondering if the check I have coming will still be viable, and if it is not, what recourse I have.

Thank you for your time,

1)Many of us have relatively large quantities of money in transfer from poker sites with checks that may not be cashable or depositable by the time we get them
----1a)This leads to uncertainty as to whether or not we ever see the funds from the withdraws we have made in the last week




Chexx pulling out of the US market should have zero impact on whether the checks they send before that are cashable. All Chexx is really doing is printing the checks. The money doesn’t belong to Chexx and the account number on the check probably doesn’t belong to Chexx.

Quote:

2)There are no viable withdraw methods available anymore if checks are not an option for the time being...EPassporte is a pain in the ass, i just got my small deposits....14 days later. So for those of us who play for a living, and unfortunately(stupidly) have a large amount of money in the sites this puts one more nail in our coffin...




It’s not a nail in anyone’s coffin. It’s a pain in the ass like everyone in every industry has to deal with. FTP says they may be able to get their new payment processor up tonight. I’m sure every site is doing everything they can to get payment processors up as quickly as humanly possible. If you have your money on a trustworthy site you will be able to get at it as soon as the site can make that possible. Remember that they want to get things back to normal even more than you do.

Quote:

3) This is just one more step toward the perfect storm scenerio that destroys online poker for the US. We are now dangerously close to having no ways to get money to and from sites. If a few more options close to us then we are dead. The sites while promising to work on new options has not released any in the two weeks following the neteller debacle.




Do you think you can get a payment processor up in two weeks? Hell no. Even if the contract were negotiated in the first second after the neteller pullout, there’s an interface between the two computer systems that has to be designed and tested. There’s going to be hundreds of millions, probably billions of dollars flowing through that interface so they cannot cut any corners or speed anything up and they are not—if they are competent—going to go forward until they are absolutely certain it works properly. It takes time.

Quote:

While i am not panicking, i am worried about the checks i have in transit. I have faith that the sites that have decided to keep serving us, PS, FT, UB, AP, can work something out. However each day that goes by our situation gets bleaker and bleaker, and this is prior to any of the recent bills regulations kicking in. I think in the sites find a way to circumvent the law, hopefully it will be in time.




But it doesn’t get bleaker and bleaker. All the changes that the sites were preparing to make in response to the bank regulations now have to be made immediately. If they had the time they expected to have you’d never have known about this at all, you’d just have had to switch payment processors when the regs came out. The situation isn’t getting any worse in regards to your money. In fact, each day the sites are making more and more progress on getting their new payment processors up.

It sucks that we have to wait but that’s all this is, waiting. It’s not sinking.

I am not worried about PokerStars taking my money, not worried at all. What I am worried about is not being able to get to it for months at a time. I am taking my money out now. It is safe in my US bank account. Whenever a new payment processor is open (or a new check issuer is found) I can either send a money order or do an EFT to get it back. I am getting my checks now, holding my cash and will get back in when the fish can (makes sense, doesn't it?). I kept enough in my Stars account so I can play small games and keep sharp. I'll also start playing live.

This doesn't seem like too bad of a plan, right?

HSB, good post. It's refreshing to see that.

I'm in the same boat as Karak though. I'm not worried about the sites stealing our money, but I am worried about when I can have access to said money. I'm in the process of setting up an ePassporte account, but if chexx is shutting down to Stars, UB, and others within the next week, I wouldn't mind cashing out a good sum of money so I don't have to worry about rent/bills in the coming months.

You make many excellent points, but this specific detail is incorrect. Chexx requires a vendor like Stars to send them money to cover all the checks that they intend to have printed and then they print the checks on a Chexx account.

You can see some details on Chexx instructions page and also here on their site.

It is part of how they work. They take money in any currency and write checks on local bank accounts everywhere. However, the money will never be stopped, because Chexx writes checks for tons of rebates and other sweepstakes stuff on those same accounts.

I would think just the opposite.

I have money on sites and I am going to wait for the dust to settle.

The last thing I want is for my money to be in a form I can't access for months.

You get a check from Stars via Chexx.

For whatever reason it is not honored.

You go back to Stars, they say talk to Chexx.

Chexx takes who knows how long to sort things out.

In short, I think a viable solution will be available looong before some of these limbo transactions ever are.

As long as my money is in a site I trust (FT/Stars), I am going to wait.

All,
FWIW I just had a check from Chexx clear my bank today. Not that this means much in and of itself, but I wouldn't lose too much sleep that your bank won't accept a check from Chexx even after this 2/2 deadline. If you need money from your poker accounts just cash it out now and expect a wait of between 3-6 weeks before you get you money and it clears the bank depending on how backlogged Chexx gets because of this announcement.

(note: this is just an opinion, I have no sources or anything)

That's what I meant by the account "probably" not belonging to Chexx. Some check printing companies do it that way, others just take a charge for the printing. Either way, there's no reason your check won't be good once they stop sending them.

Chexx is a processing company of checks.

They are not a bank, the checks are through US-Banc.

So a check you receive can be cashed as long as they don't suddenly pull out all the money from their accounts.

Yeah, with your money on a site you can play with it. With it in transit it does you no good. I'm also leaving mine on site until the dust clears.

But then, I'm not relying on the money I have on the sites to pay the rent.

Exactly. And the bulk of their business is not poker-related and they are not going anywhere. It is essentially unthinkable that a processor like them will default on their checks.

If I get my 2 checks from stars (Chexx) and I take them to say king soopers to cash them they will give me cash right on the spot? do you have to pay something extra to cash it there? Id rather not have to deposit to US bank and wait x # of weeks for the thing to clear. Sorry for the noob ? but I dont use check cashing places ever.

I don't think you're going to be able to get around the waiting period. A lot of places don't like out of state checks and out of country checks (which I assume Chexx checks are) are even worse.

I know you can take a check to US-Banc directly and they charge a $5 fee for non-customers to cash one of their own checks.

Probably a check cashing place charges quite a bit more.

I am just going to deposit mine at my regular bank with the 1-2 week hold, as I think the risk here is near 0.

so because of the processing delay, if I cash out some right now by the time it gets processed it may be after the 2nd correct? So what would happen? I'm looking to move around 10k, and don't want it in limbo for months.

But it doesn’t get bleaker and bleaker. All the changes that the sites were preparing to make in response to the bank regulations now have to be made immediately. If they had the time they expected to have you’d never have known about this at all, you’d just have had to switch payment processors when the regs came out. The situation isn’t getting any worse in regards to your money. In fact, each day the sites are making more and more progress on getting their new payment processors up




It's more complicated than that. Perhaps the KEY question in all of this is the degree to which various players in the online gambling food chain make *voluntary* decisions to withdraw from the US market. The fact is that the letter of the law is going to be fairly difficult to enforce -- both before and after the UIGEA goes into effect -- but businesses have different tolerances for risk, and to a certain extent, those companies that have a higher tolerance for regulatory risk are likely to be less reputable.

The fact that more and more companies are playing it safe and withdrawing services from the US market is troubling. Where 0 represents the best-case scenario where it's more or less business and usual ("Regulations, schmegulations"), and 100 represents a complete meltdown of the US-facing online gambling industry, the current evidence suggests that we're at about a 70 or a 75. With each company that withdraws from the US market in advance of the UIGEA, that number inches higher, because it suggests that the industry will behave conservatively. If that number hits an 80 or an 85, then the risk of having money anywhere except a US bank account starts to become fairly tangible.

Right now, if there were some way to *guarantee* that I would have a secure and immediate way to transfer funds from a poker account into my US bank at any point in the next 24 months, I would probably pay a 5-7% surcharge for this service.

Why are you all panicking? Chexx is not a bank. Its a company who specializing ni providing check writing services for people who need to write checks in large quantities. If this is true, then Stars gets a new company or starts writing out the checks themselves. More costly, but not the end of the world.

I know this isn't the end of the world, but withdrawing is needed for many of us to live off of, especially low stake pros. True, you should have 6 months living expenses saved up before turning pro, but if you're already making more being pro then a job would pay then that goers out the window.

Answer form UB

Kevin,



Chexx is still available, and any changes will be announced. Please be informed that any withdrawal methods changed will be replaced. Should you still wish, you may withdraw funds by requesting a check. The check can be requested from “My Account”, and is displayed as CHEXX in the menu.



We expect to implement more withdrawal methods that are timelier and convenient by the end of the week and will announce any formal changes soon.

Having worked for PokerStars, I had a chance to confirm the multiple payment processors for checks with one of the senior-level employees there (Ellis).

He confirmed that they indeed do use multiple check processors and that no disruption in service is anticipated. The accounting and deposits team at PokerStars is arguably the most efficient department within the company in my opinion, and I have full faith in them to continue servicing US players with multiple options.

I got the exact same email that was posted up there from "Ellis." I responded asking to know if I can get a 100 % guarantee that my money will be sent quickly and efficiently after 2/2. If they say yes to this, I'll trust them.

Yeah, I know - Ellis gave me the standard form letter, but elaborated further with regard to the multiple payment processors and said that there should be no problems going forward.

Obviously I can't guarantee the safety of your money since I don't work there anymore, but I would certainly bet on it.

There's always going to be delays when the checks are drawn from foreign bank accounts or tied into them - it's pretty standard, unfortunately. A hold on the money until the check clears the US clearinghouses should take 3-5 business days and nothing more.

apparently a number of people are calling them up saying stupid things like "get some balls you canadian idiots".

This does not help the situation.

Do these people realize that they are putting many of the outstanding checks at risk by doing something like this.

This post in general is borderline irresoponsible since it could just cause them to shut the door immediately.

Final straw for me. I'm folding. Hopefully regulations take a turn for the better in the future.

I'll miss playing 1/2 NL recreationally on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

I'll continue to lurk here and hope for good news.

FYI:
I just got a check by Fedex from Absolute I requested on 1/29. It says in tiny letters at the top "U.S. Bank" so that's where I took it, and they cashed it No Problemo. But I did hurry out today 2/1, since all that I read on here about them. Good Luck everybody.

A bank cannot charge a fee for cashing a check drawn on their instituion. That was the law when I worked in the industry for 10 years ending in the late 90's. I don't think anything has changed in that regard. As long as the customer has valid ID we had to cash the check. There are of course situations involving potential fraud, etc. that would lead us to investigate the item in more detail which could take some time but we could not charge to cash an on us item.

This is out-dated. For non-account holders they can and do charge a nominal fee. I cashed a Chexx Inc check at US bank for a $5 fee

PokerStars check trip report:

After getting my money out of Neteller around noon on Monday, I requested a check sometime later in the evening. The Fedex envelope was here today, and I hadn't even received my tracking number, so I checked my e-mail. Sure enough, Stars had sent me the number sometime between 2 AM and when I woke up at 1 PM today. Package was sent out yesterday and arrived today (FAST!).

Went to my bank (local), and approached a teller who I know thinks I'm cute. She was in a bad mood today, and wasn't as courteous as usual. I had deposited checks from Stars at this bank twice before with no problems. This time was no exception. Will check bank account over the next couple of days to make sure it went through OK.

I deposited one of these in an ATM last night. Usually they show up as cleared for me next business day, but this one hasn't. Anyone know if that's because I used the ATM instead of a teller, or if these checks just take longer to clear?

When I have deposited checks at the ATM they often dont show up on my online account as even pending for a day or two. It just depends when the bank gets around to entering them into the system.

my husband has started receiving checks from stars to replace neteller. i deposited one yesterday before noon and it had posted to our account this morning. we've received one check before with the same result--deposited in the morning, check posted to our account with funds available the next morning. it's actually a faster turnaround than most checks we deposit.

guys, the trip reports are good and all, but the rumor states they wont be processing checks anymore AFTER Feb 2nd.

So when someone requests a cashout from stars after this date, and deposits their check, then post the report.

We already have assurances from several sites (FTP, PS, AP, UB) that they use multiple check processors, they don't rely solely on Chexx.

I'd also like to see the bank people are depositing to after their reports. Different banks have long had different policies as far as allowing transactions to/from sites related to poker goes, and this is yet another chance for some bank to take matters into their own hands by arbitrarily rejecting payments that likely came from gambling sources.

BoA (my bank) so far seems like the worst about taking gambling prevention into their own hands.

I agree they have more than one check processor, but my prediction is they will burn thru them all by the end of Feburary. My guess is Chexx all of a sudden went from a few checks from pokerstars per day, to thousands. Management discussed whether having pokerstars as a customer post UIGEA was in their best interest and then cut off the pokersites. I expect their other check processing companies will go thru the same thought process.

Short sighted. Fish don't cash out, but they deposit because they think/believe that they will. If the fish no they can't get money out once the "bad beats" finally stop, they will not put money in. At least your typical fish will not.

I have BoA also and have deposited 2 checks from PS (Chexx) in the past 3 weeks. One was for 3k about 3 weeks ago, the other was 4 days ago for 5k. Both went through without a problem. I used the ATM, not a teller.

There's always going to be delays when the checks are drawn from foreign bank accounts or tied into them - it's pretty standard, unfortunately. A hold on the money until the check clears the US clearinghouses should take 3-5 business days and nothing more.




I have cashed 2 checks from Chexx (via PS) in the past 3 weeks, and both times the amount posted to my account the same day and was available the next day.

Good to hear. Sometimes the bank's policies suck and holds happen, though, so it's nothing out of the ordinary for most people.

Not saying that it won't, but checks don't clear in a day. The fact they released the funds to you doesn't mean it actually cleared.

Follow the advice given in my post and you will quickly find out. If you have a bank account, most banks have a web site that would tell you the nearest location that is currently open. Many banks are not open on Saturday, but some branches stay open until noon. Your best bet is too find a bank branch attached to a grocery store or inside a shopping mall, they tend to have longer hours. Good Luck.

I didn't ask:

- how to cash a check

- if my checks in hand would be good

- when banks are open

I asked if anyone found out if, going forward, in the future if Chexx was halting their business with internet gambling providers.

that's fine if you don't know, but don't sit here and give advice that is irrelevant to the intial question.

The rumor is that after Feb. 2nd, checks will not be processed. We are currently 13 hours past that point. You have a check, go cash it and see. DONK.

By law, a bank can take up to 30 days to see if a check clears, so even if this rumor is true, I don't think anyone is going to know after 4 business hours.

no, the rumor was that Chexx would no longer process (cut) checks for internet gambling outfits after Feb 2 but that all checks in hand cut prior to Feb 2 but cashed after Feb 2 would be good.

The rumor had nothing to do with whether or not a bank would honor said check.

Ty for playing.

Maybe try reading the thread next time before rushing to write some long post that serves no other purpose than to insult the intelligence of posters, most of whom are just scared and confused.

But at least they know how to cash a check now. Can you write a post on tying your shoes next time? I'm sure we're all too [censored] stupid to figure that out too.

The question is not whether you can cash a check, its if their are still processing companies to issue checks for Stars/FTP. Stars claims to have two additional companies willing to issue checks for them. Lets see what happens next week. My theory on the Chexx pullout was Stars has hardly used them in the last 3 years, then in the last two weeks, they have Chexx issue thousands of checks. Chexx management then re-evaulated their relationship with Stars under the new UIGEA environment and Chexx did not want to take the risk as Stars is a very small portion of their business. I expect Stars other check processors to most likely go through the same thought process.

Okay, so your question is even stupider. How can someone have a check cut after Feb 2, at 1pm Feb 3rd???

I would assume checks are done Monday - Friday, meaning the first check that could possibly be effected won't even be created yet until Monday, about 36 hours away. And then even if a courier is used to deliver, those checks will not be in anyones hands, until Tuesday.

Will the sun rise on Wednesday? Does anyone know???

better question, has anyone received a Chexx check (or any check from a poker site) that is dated Feb 3 or later? I'm sure not yet, but it would be nice to hear when someone does.

It was written on the 2nd. I guess that isn't any help.

I received a Chexx check today for an amount under $1,000. I've read through much of this thread, but since the majority of its content is a week or so old, I thought I'd ask:

What's my best play for cashing/depositing the check, and how long should I expect to wait to have the funds?

-Deposit to one of my checking accounts?

if this, should I try and cash it or deposit it? If deposit it, shuold I go through a teller or through the ATM?

-Go to Moneygram/Western Union to cash it?
-Go to shady Check cashing place to cash it?

I received a Chexx check today for $2k. It was dated 2/5/07 and was drawn on "US Bank".

I just dropped it by the bank today in the night deposit box, and hopefully it clear pretty quickly.

Go to the bank. Deposit the COMPLETELY STANDARD check, drawn on a United States bank, into your checking account, just like any other check. Use the teller or ATM, whichever you feel like doing.

If your bank won't give you enough cash back, and you need it fast, and there is a USBank (issuing bank) branch near you, go there and they will cash it for a $5 fee.

I have no idea about the other options you mention.

I received one today, dated feb/06/2007

Chexx inc.
The feb. 2 rumor is false

I will deposit it tommorrow, and when I due, I'm going to pretend that its a regular check, which it is. I'm going to assume that it will clear just as any other check, which will.
