Online Poker goes bye bye

So, I got an email, that (removing extraneous stuff) says:

Please note that we have processed your withdrawal on Prima Poker Royal Vegas to the following Account: *number removed for myspace*

 
If you need the details regarding your processed withdrawal, please click on the below link to access CashCheck.

I respond with a letter explaining that I authorized no such thing....
Here's the main portion of the response:

Thank you for contacting the Poker Support desk.

The reason that you have received email confirmation on your casino balance was brought down to $0.00.

As your account has been locked due to the passing of "The Safe Ports Act", we regretfully are not able to have your account unlocked. 

Your current cash balance is $*amount removed for myspace*.

You will not receive any payment from us.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Guess it is official now.

Well, two sites have now closed my account and not refunded my money. What do you think you should do?

Unfortunately, Bush made it illegal for Banks to do transactions with online gambling sites... As such, the only thing they can legally do is cancel your funds - since they can't withdraw or deposit more.

And then there is the fact that he is trying to make online gambling completely illegal - and that they have been arresting CEOs of this online gambling sites whenever they come into the country.
