Full Tilt Poker with Non-US IP, Address, and Bank Account
I am a US player and I have a plan that I am looking into and would like to know if anyone else has looked into it. I just emailed FTP support to ask if it would be alright to change my address to a non-US address, use a VPN to change my IP to outside the US, and change my bank account to a non-US account. I asked them if they would consider it to be a violation of their Terms of Service. Also, I asked if they would consider me a non-US player. They maybe less strict about this stuff now (but of course, they maybe more strict too) but I figured it would not hurt to ask. I noticed that Svetlana Gromenkova switched her account from the US to Russia and never quit playing. If they say OK, then I am going to get it set up but to be safe, I am not going to play until I hear about many successful cashouts to non-US players over the course of the next week or two.
Also, I have heard that a couple of Latvian bank accounts are good, safe, and easy to open same with HSBC, RBS, etc. Until I get a foreign bank account set up, I will use friends and GB (please PM me for more info) to cashout. GB said he is stopping wires to the US for now but he can still mail checks.
Any ideas, suggestions, etc. especially in terms of setting up a foreign bank account? Thanks.
