    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.

    np, your going to need a friend in naother country to open an account for you if you dont plan on leaving the u.s and i know from experience HSBC is a no go because they are heavily tied to u.s institutions

    Thanks. I may drive up to Canada but heard there are issues with them sometimes, too (too closely tied to US institutions also).

    i cant speak for other countries but for example if someone wanted to open an account here in mexico there are 4 routes:

    Student visa (FM2)

    work visa (FM3)

    retirement visa

    residency/nationality

    "the easiest 'cheat' way to do it would be option 1.

    you apply and get enrollment to a BS foriegn language school, say one that teachers outsiders spanish. Then you can get you student visa, never even have to attend a class. With that you can open up a bank account here. If you try to come here on a typical 6 month vacation visa you will be unable to open an account.

    its also important that you open one with an independant mexican bank.

    the largest Banamex wont work since its owned by the Citigroup. HSBC wont either. But that still leaves many like bancomer, IXE bank, scotiabank and a few others.
    Forthwith likes this.

    Good point, it was just the normal support email. However, I have not gotten an error message back (like not deliverable). Correction: Just got the error message a couple hours after this post...

    Thanks. And thanks, Gabe, I think that the Latvian accounts can be setup via mail/fax/email so i will look into those and others.

    Gabe, I sent you a PM regarding what Mexican banks you are using, I need to open an acct today and try to deposit before the Mexican holidays.

    You mention, Bancomer, IXE bank and Scotiabank, which one gives me the best shot at depositing/withdrawing, speed with deposits(hopefully only need to deposit once) and withdrawals, are you using the same bank to deposit and to withdrawal?

    Do you use moneybookers?

    Are you using any other deposit/withdrawals options?

    thanks in advance
