      Hi

      I've been asked to do an ID Check and its made me feel stupid.

      When I signed up for my Full Tilt account I gave false information because I don't like giving out my real ID because I have trouble trusting people I don't know with it and didn't think it would be of any impact. But now I'm being asked to provide ID by PokerStrategy.com I am now wishing I provided my real name and address!

      My fear is that once PokerStrategy has seen the name and address I provided initially, that information will go onto their database about me and they will assume that information is correct. But now they want ID I can't give them any because I provided false information!

      I am hoping I can right this wrong, change my information and have it be of no consequence, and I will then provide the proper ID. I really didn't think providing the wrong info about me would've been such a bad idea. I wish I had read through the whole process of how the starting capital would be released before I got into this mess.

      Is there any way out?

      Hello!

      You can try contacting our customer support and explaining the situation to them, perhaps they will be able to help you with your problem. However, I cannot guarantee you that your wish will come true as you are supposed to put in the correct information.

      Best regards,

      Primzi

      Thanks.

      What I have now done is changed my Personal Information on my Full Tilt account to the real data and also on PokerStrategy.com I uploaded a picture of my birth certificate, photo and a letter from my estate agent addressed to me.

      I hope what may be seen as a transgression gets overlooked.

      Do the ID Check folks check these forums?

      Just wondering whether I can simply link to this thread for efficiency's sake.

      There's a fine line between efficiency and laziness... Specially if u want free stuff and fix the wrong impression ...

      Well I created a ticket and explained the situation in there anyway but linked them to the thread just to further suggest I'm being genuine.

      I really hope to get the starting capital because I'm really broke at the moment because Betsafe won't release my bankroll to me in a withdrawal until they see a passport or driving license. I just sent off for a UK Government approved ID card and their support said that'd be OK too. Maybe if I get that soon enough I can send a picture of it to PokerStrategy's ID Check guys!

      One last thing. I saw PokerStrategy are hiring coaches. From what I can gather there is definitely a lack in videos and coaching on games other than Holdem and I myself being a Omaha Hi/Lo specialist I was thinking of applying! I don't have a job at the moment so when I realised there might be a market for someone with my experience in that game I thought it might be worth a shot. It'd be great to be part of the PokerStrategy team.

      Turns out I failed my ID Check. Oh well...

      As for videos, the PokerCoach role seemed advertised as a paid position?

      Sorry to hear that. I can't really give you many details about our freelancer jobs (since I don't know them myself :) ), so simply send an email :)

      Also, as someone who has already played a lot, you might be able to refer some friends using our TAF program - that'd be a good alternative way to get a decent bankroll to start with.

      Yeah I put up my referral link on my Facebook profile page. Got a few mates who play plus plenty other's who might take a dip in the poker ocean and at $100 a pop I hope they do!

      Thanks for your responses throughout this thread guys.
