      my last post here as i am quite annoyed -

      after someone rang me and spoke to me to prove who i am they still failed me ???

      i have never had an account at full tilt

      i have never had an account here before

      i am a real person as someone rang me and verified that.

      i was a bit hesitant on the phone at first as i thought it was another call centre trying to sell me something and i was still half asleep but having spoke to me and still getting refused this just seems like a con

      is pokerstrategy just collecting everyones emails and other details to sell on ???

      No, PokerStrategy is legit. I got my free $50 from them. So did many others.

      Hi,

      Me also received the free $50.
      You can deposit your own money.
      I lost my starting capital but I sell the PokerStars.com play money to get real money. I mean if you don't want to deposit you own money then you can sell the play money.

      Good luck. :)

      Hey winmore24,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com and the community.

      The starting capital usually takes about 48 working hrs w/out ID check and 96 working hours w/ ID check.
      Please be patient as times may vary during busy periods and over weekends/public holiday.

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Hi there,

      I am happy to introduce you to our business model chrismccabe9 :) just follow this link please.

      I am sure if you read through the forum you'll soon realize that our bonus is not scam and we have more than 1,000,000 happy players who received it.

      In fact is a bit of an insult for you to think we would create a website, translate it into 19 languages, hire more then 270 employees :f_love: just to scam people?
      As far as I'm concerned no other online poker school gives such generous starting capital to its members. Or am I wrong here? :)

      Failing the ID check could be for several reasons. If you need more information to understand our rules regarding ID check, please visit our FAQ.

      When it comes to PokerStrategy.com, there is much more than just the free cash. We have an extensive strategy articles section/ plenty of videos for you to watch and excellent dedicated coaches who are here to help you in your game plan. Take advantage of it and show us you can do this with out the free cash.

      If you think you wouldn't manage with out some extra cash, create a Full Tilt account with us here and take part in our daily freeroll tournament, shiiip some moniez and make a self deposit.

      Thank you for understanding and good luck building your bankroll!
      Ingrid

      Folks,

      Some reminders and general information:

      • All accounts must be created using the details of the person creating the account. This means you can't use your brother's/sister's/mother's name to register a second account. We already provide a mechanism for you to refer people in this way -- our Tell-a-Friend Program.

      • All data is handled in accordance with out Privacy Policy and with the applicable law. You can be sure, as can all of our 5 million+ members, that we take our data processing and protection obligations very seriously indeed and would never, in any way, act outside the best interests of the 'data subjects' (this means you guys!) and nor would we do anything legally questionable.

      • There is much more that we offer as a business than just the free $50 starting capital as IngridN has already explained in this thread.

      • I've personally reviewed each case in this thread, because we know that sometimes our fraud prevention mechanisms can get it wrong. In this case I'm 100% satisfied that the correct action was taken on each account.

      • Our free $50 starting capital is of course a very attractive option. This also makes it open to fraudulent abuse. This means that we have to have some procedures in place to reduce our risk; if we didn't, we wouldn't be able to offer the free $50 at all. Additionally on this point, whilst a poker room may elect to apply security procedures at registration, more often than not they are reserved for deposit or withdrawal.

      • We expect everyone to display a respectful tone in our forums at all times. Whilst we understand that you might be frustrated at not getting the free $50, we also would appreciate a more constructive tone.

        If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask in this thread.

        Best,

      Hi Chris,

      Really good news and looking forward to see you on the forum! Next time you see someone calling our starting capital a scam, hopefully you know what to write and understand why we have huuuuuuuuuuuuuge emotions coming out seeing such posts.

      I always enjoy these threads...

      As mod already mentioned before, they have staff employed.

      So lets think of the "scam" as a biz model....

      You promise to give out free 50$.... and you incure fixed and variable cost as well.... all in exchange for your email address and some info.

      I guess whoever they are selling the email addresses too must be buying them for 1k$+ per email address.

      So can you please let me know who you are selling the email addresses too? I also want to sell some!! :s_love:
