UK Poker Players Refer-A-Friend Cash Pipeline Disrupted As 'Scruff' Asked For ID

Calvin Taylor of Manchester UK was in a major quandary yesterday, Melted Felt can exclusively report, after Party Poker requested ID from his family dog 'Scruff' before processing a cash-out request.

Realizing that Party were none too fussy when it came to exactly which friends were involved, Calvin had been slowly but surely refering members of his family for months. After both parents, baby sister Emily, great aunt Doris and 3 deceased great-grandparents had all successfully earned the exact number of Party Points required to get the cash - Calv decided that Scruff should have his day.

Though Scruff actually prefers sniffing dogs ar$es and chasing cats to online skill-games, he managed to quickly get to the number of points required to earn himself a bonus and his master a cash reward. Unfortunately Party have seen it all before and sent a standard e-mail to the 5 year old Scotty asking for proof of Id and banking details - at the same time freezing Calvin's account pending a security investigation.

While Scruff was lucky enough to have an EU 'Pet Passport', the bank account part was proving much more difficult to set up at the time of writing.

A cautionary tale indeed - but not one that bothers Calvin too much, after all his 'lill sister Emily who turns 3 next month is currently half-way through the blackjack sign-up bonus....
