      It's not PokerStrategy's fault that your (and I assume you're american) government is retarded.

      Besides, PS doesn't make any money from unused accounts, no matter if their referal code was used or not.

      ummmm but it is thier fualt they dont tell you at begining of test.

      why make you take the test then download client make a name using thier refferal code then when you come back to give them the username at poker site is when they tell you they dont deal with americans

      they should tell you upfront when you go to take the test that they dont do this promo for americans instead of making you do all that and make a poker account and give thier referral code befor they tell you

      that my friend is a scam

      whats funny is now that i make pokerstars account with thier refferal code so when i do deposit money they will make rake money off me even though they dont deal with americans i bet they will take my rake money.

      so now i have to get pokerstars to delete my username so i can remake it without thier refferal code

      Hello poker1234567890,

      The Problem with you warning Americans about "us scamming U.S. players" on this forum is that most other U.S. players actually go through the trouble of reading the boxes they put checkmarks next to while signing up - and will therefore not be reading this.

      I took a screenshot of the registration form you filled out:



      Where you can see that you stated that you were in fact 18 years old and not from the U.S. (this is a mandatory field). This is in order to insure that U.S. players do not actually get to the point of taking the quiz - since we cannot transfer money to them.

      So please refrain from wild accusations of us trying to scam you - we have no interest in this nor anything to gain from you creating playmoney accounts with our bonus codes and then leaving as an upset 'client'.

      Best regards,
      SoyCD

      deception

      why not ask for all the stuff upfront in the first signup like you guys do in the second signup when you want adress and stuff???

      why not have the i am not from usa have its own checkbox instead of it being like that??

      i will tell you why because you guys are scammers. if you wasnt you would ask for adress in the first signup there shuoldn't be two signups for one website account and if it wasnt scamming you guys would atleast have "not from usa" have its own checkbox

      Thank you for your feedback.

      I will forward this to the correct department so that we can perhaps implement a third check box.

      Best regards,
