Lengthy wait-times for new ePassporte customers

7 Feb 2007

By Ryan McLane

ePassporte, one of the few remaining e-wallets choices for U.S. online gamblers, is experiencing longer-than-usual waits times due to the volume of new customer sign-ups.

New customers can expect to wait more than three weeks for their new accounts to be active.

A Casino City reporter began the sign-up process on Jan. 17 and was told by an ePassporte customer service representative that she/he could expect the money to be posted by the end of this week (Feb. 5-9).

Additionally, the customer service department released this statement on the ePassporte Web site.

"Due to unusually high call and email volumes, you may experience extended hold times when calling us or there may be a delay receiving a response to your email inquiry. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are exerting all efforts so that we may attend to your phone calls and emails as soon as possible. Your calls and emails will be answered in the order they are received. We appreciate your patience and cooperation."

Casino City will update this article once more information becomes available.
