I set up an account on a Yahoo DFS a few days after they launched during MLB and deposited $25.00. I played with that amount for about a month and stopped playing on there, but left all the money in the account, roughly $20.00. When the NFL rolled around and they offered a deposit bonus, I deposited another $100.00. I played the first 2 weeks of NFL, lost $22.00 and decided to pull out my balance, $98.00. I sent the withdrawal request on 9-24. On 9-28 I noticed it didn’t process, so I sent an email and got a canned response, so I called the 800 number, talked to a CS rep and he took care of it. No big deal. Or so I thought.
I checked the e-mail account linked to that account and this is the email I received:
Thanks again for reaching out to us at Yahoo Billing.
Your account’s deposit and withdrawal activity is highly disproportionate to your contest entries.
This is viewed as an abuse of our payments systems, but we have issue your requested payout and noted this on your account.
If this type of activity continues, your account will be blocked permanently.

So apparently, if you make a deposit, play a little and then make a withdrawal, you are abusing their “payment systems.” If you are playing on there currently I would be very careful about how much money you load on there.
