I live in Massachusetts – a state where not only is DFS legal, but recently the AG herself has stated it is legal, and will have regulations. Well, one of my credit cards has blocked Fanduel deposits because it deems it “illegal gambling”. So in other words, they just made this up out of thin air and decided to go with it, thus revoking my right as a citizen of Massachusetts of using my money on something that is legal in Massachusetts.
I know that processors had pressure on them to stop accepting payments in NY, but that’s that – what the hell does Massachusetts or any other currently legal state have anything to do with it? The credit card company has just made up a rule without ANY logic whatsoever, and now they are violating my civil rights as a good American citizen.
Citicards is the company by the way, completely ridiculous that they just made this garbage up that goes directly against what is actually legal.
Another credit card did work just fine, in case anyone was wondering.
