when I try to make a deposit, I cannot with my Visa card. I have tried 32 times. Why will no one just pick up a phone and call me? In Trade knows nothing about customer service, NOTHING.

Errrr....so you can't make a deposit with Visa. There are plenty of posts on the forum detailing that.
Someone wiser than I said that the definition of insanity was trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. 32 times?

Hello Bob,

As is clearly noted on the credit card deposit screen, credit cards issued in the United States cannot be used to fund an Intrade account. This is not the choice of Intrade but due to regulations passed by Congress that restrict what US residents can do with their cards. This is the reason you cannot use your Visa.

The Contact US page also clearly notes the hours we are available to take phone calls - 9:30am ET until 4:30am ET. Outside of those hours you can leave us a message and we'll call you back. You left no message however, just a series of emails.

I can understand your frustration, and we are here to help as best we can, but please be sure to read the information provided on the website - you could save yourself from additional frustration.

I've heard the 33rd time is a charm
