Dude - this is totally not true.
Offshore books need to use 3rd party payment processors. Those 3rd party payment processors need to be willing to look the other way on US law, so you dont end up with the cream of the crop that normal US businesses use.
So offshore books are constantly doing a dance with their processors. They send them money, and sometimes (often) the processor people up.
Unlike normal businesses, this is not a sign of the books ability to repay debts - it is more of a sign of the US govt at work. So if your standard is to deal with a US facing book that doesnt bounce checks occasionally, GL with that.
As far as 5dimes goes - they are not only top 3 book - they are a top 2 AMERICAN FACING book. Thats because there are really only 2 that can even qualify for a realistic list, 5dimes and bookmaker. But make no mistake, when you open that list up to worldwide books - those 2 dont even make the top 10.
