PP scam? 0

Has anyone else received an email from PP starting:

"You haven’t used your account recently, so we wanted to remind you that after six months of inactivity we charge an administration fee each month. " ?

Is this a scam or is this for real. Friends on PP have not received any such message.

If it is real, how do I stop them deducting the admin fee? I don't remember providing credit card information, but a year later I cannot rule out this possible action.

Advice please.

This is for real. So never leave some money in your account, if you stop playing there. Not only can't they charge that fee, if your account is zero, but they will invite you back with a free bonus.

Well, I never got this email, and they charged me with an inactive account fee twice already.

I wish they had sent an email to warn me, but nothing, they just deducted about 6 or 7 dollars from my bankroll. Maybe they shaped up, and warn you now (although the last time they did it, was just a month ago or so, without email warnings).

Both times I immediately got the money back when I complained to support.

If you don't want to get charged, all you need to do is play one raked hand, or enter a tournament with a fee, and that resets the inactivity counter for another 180 days. If you don't, they'll slap you with it every month until your bankroll is gone.

The fact that the inactivity charge itself is real, does not mean this email is real; it still might be a scam. If you're unsure, just don't click any links in the email, but simply play a raked hand, to lift the charge.

This is fpor real, for sure, Party Poker doesnt scam players.

By the way i think all sites does that after you stay long long time without playing them.

In my opinion PP is still the most serious site to play poker and make bets!

Unfortunately this is actually for real mate, some friends got it too...

I definately must agree with one of the posts above: If you want to stop playing on a poker platform take all your money out of there Blink

From what i understood they'll ONLY take a fee from your bankroll. They wont charge from ur credit card. so if u dont have anything there or u dont care for whatever is left there, u shouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for your helpful advice. My options are to reset my password and play a raked hand, or let them take the 3 cents left in my bankroll as the admin fee. I stopped playing on PP because the site is old, clumsy and the font size too small for my poor eyesight. At least that's my excuse for my my low bankroll Smile

They sent that to me about 6 months ago as I had not played there in about a year.

I Sent them back a nasty letter saying if you want to do that , I will NEVER EVER play on your site again.

Thats where it stands.
Screw PP
