    For those who used all access debit cards to do online poker

    Dear -----,
    Our records show that you may have used your NetSpend Prepaid MasterCard for internet gambling transactions in the past.

    Beginning May 31, 2010, MasterCard and Visa will begin complying with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act by blocking all online gambling transactions attempted by U.S. cardholders. This means you will not be able to use your NetSpend card or account for internet based gambling transactions. Internet gambling transactions will be automatically declined to comply with these federal regulations. NetSpend has no control over this change.

    Don’t forget there are many great ways to use your NetSpend card. You can pay bills online or over the phone, shop online and make everyday purchases anywhere Visa debit cards or wherever Debit MasterCard is accepted. At NetSpend, we make sure that you are informed and in control of your money.

    Thank you,

    Your NetSpend Team

    Major bummer. Anyone know of other ways to navigate around this?

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Why? There is no reason to obey opressive laws enacted by the gov't against the will of the people. If he wants to play a game of poker, go ahead.

    I've been playing for years, ever since the Congress in 2006 tacked the UIGEA onto an unrelated port security bill poker players have been expecting the world to end. In reality it is easier and quicker to get money off or on now that it was a few months after the UIGEA passed.

    There will always be ways around it, heck I have never even heard of this debit card and I still play quite a bit. Not sure what site you are on but there will always be new options to deposit/withdraw.

    This is true. All the gambling websites are constantly tweaking their deposit methods and banks to get around these ridiculous laws.

    this is what my netspend card essentially was, they banned all the gift cards.
