Full Tilt, PokerStars, UB and AP Poker charged with fraud
The online poker forums are blowing up as word is trickling in that the FBI has seized the domain names of the four largest online poker rooms operating in the US: PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and UB Poker all appear with an FBI seizure notice in certain parts of the world.
According to the poker forum users, as the DNS caches are updated by providers we will all see this notice but it could take up to 48 hours.
A tweet by CNBC, and some posters saying they saw the news on CNBC, point to this being a serious investigation into the companies. Here is the recent Tweet by CNBC: “Three Largest Internet Poker Companies Charged With Fraud, Illegal Gambling – Pokerstars, Full Tilt Poker, & Absolute Poker – Charged”
Details are still very murky at this time, but we promise to keep you posted as more news trickles in on the seizure of these online poker domain names. Again, according to CNBC, Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars have been charged with fraud, as well as the Cereus network of sites UB Poker and Absolute Poker.
