Poker pro Mike "The Mouth" Matusow has gone off on Venmo for reportedly allowing thousands of dollars to be hacked from his account.  Matusow also claims he has gotten little assistance from mobile payment solutions company that allows money transfer between "friends".

Those in the poker community know all too well that "friends" aren't always what they are cracked up to be.

Matusow's revelation comes as other notable poker pros appear to have had similar issues.

Another individual warned of a similar experience where an "agent" allegedly screwed him out of $3000.

Not everybody sympathized with "The Mouth", who regularly tweets his devotion to US President Donald Trump.

"Call Sidney Powell," one follower tweeted in reference to a Trump affiliated attorney who continues to lodge complains of "voter fraud" with the recent US Elections.

"Tighten up that password mikey , everyone knows it is Norco72," another of his followers tweeted.

Customer service issues aside, Venmo scams happen just as they do with credit cards and traditional banking.

Venmo Is Safest With Well-Known People and Brands, Justin Prichard of TheBalance.com advises.

When dealing with friends or paying a reputable business, Venmo is (for the most part) safe, although it has had issues in the past about misrepresenting its service.1 The company protects your account information with the typical security features and technology you’d expect from a financial institution.2 But buying or selling with strangers, whether online or in-person, is risky. Venmo offers no buyer or seller protection.

Prichard also suggests it is best to use Venmo with a credit card as one's primary funding method (as opposed to using a debit card, or a direct link to your bank account).

One Matusow follower felt the poker pro may be jumping the gun in lambasting Venmo's lack of immediate reply during what are presumably "off hours".

Jerrod Muttscheler tweeted:

"Probably because they’re closed. And if the money was stolen off of your phone, that’s on you. They have a lot of security in place if logging in from new device. I know bc I speak from experience.  @venmo fixed all my issues."
