PokerStars responds to DOJ indictments and seizure

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Apr 16, 2011 Posted in Poker News | 1 Comment »

We received our first word from PokerStars on Friday evening regarding the day’s events which left the online poker world in absolute bedlam as the Department of Justice and the FBI shut down the three largest online poker rooms serving the US market. In addition to the crackdown the owners of Absolute/UB Poker, PokerStars, and Full Tilt Poker were indicted on a number of federal crimes revolving around the 1955 Illegal Gambling Business Act and the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.

In a statement meant to ease their customers’ worries, PokerStars stated:

Here is the statement that was issued by PokerStars:

“As you may have heard, we have had to suspend real money poker services to people based in the US due to legal developments there. The developments are confined to the US and do not have any impact on your ability to continue using our services. Please be assured player balances are safe. There is no cause for concern. For all customers outside the US it is business as usual.”

“The PokerStars website has been moved to www.pokerstars.eu and our support email address is now support@pokerstars.eu. We apologise to our players for any inconvenience caused by this disruption. Please be aware that we are currently experiencing a very high volume of emails, so response times are delayed. We will answer player emails as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter”.

    There were no commercial plane crashes on 9-11. The US government, FBI, and military conspired to murder millions of people. Maybe now with the shut down of poker sites people will finally wake up and understand just how criminal their authority figures really are. NOT ONE single piece of debris was verified from any supposed plane on 9-11. The war on terror is a fraud.
