PostSubject: FBI Investigates Full Tilt– Centers Around Lederer and Ferguson   Wed Apr 07, 2010 1:42 pm

If a recent report in the Financial Times is any indication, online poker room Full Tilt Poker could be in major legal trouble before 2010 is over. According to the article, a federal grand jury in Manhattan is investigating the company and some of the big names affiliated with the site. The Times names both Chris Ferguson andHoward Lederer as potential targets of the investigation. The two are believed to hold a “controlling interest” in Full Tilt Poker and, as US residents, they may be charged with breaking US anti-gambling laws. Though Lederer and Ferguson both reside in the US, Full Tilt is registered in Alderney, which is part of the UK’s Channel Islands.

In addition to investigating potential violations of gaming laws within the States, the inquiry is also looking into accusations of money laundering by the company. The Times elaborated on the nature of the investigation:

“FBI agents or prosecutors have spoken to at least two people involved in disputes with Full Tilt, paying special attention to the possibility of money-laundering violations, those familiar with the inquiry say. Money-laundering charges might be attractive to the government as they would compel co-operation from authorities even in countries where gambling is legal.”

The move is seen by many to be in anticipation of the June 1st enforcement deadline of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). The act had previously been delayed six months, but there appears to be no future delays for the legislation. This move is being seen by many within the online gambling industry as an attempt by the Justice Department to make an example out of one of the biggest sites currently serving US customers once the UIGEA goes into effect.

The article failed to name any of the individuals the FBI spoke to in connection to the case and Eric Jackson, a civil attorney who represents Full Tilt, declined commenting on the matter. “We are not going to comment about a speculative grand jury investigation that we are not aware of,” Jackson told the publication. Representatives from the US Attorney’s Office also declined to comment on the matter.

Bluff will continue to keep tabs on this story as it develops.

wow money laudering no good at all.. chris and howard hopefully arent getting to greedy as for the june 1st deadline i see it as government abusing its control. i think its total B.S. that soon we wont be able to make adeposit with a credit card. its the only way ive ever made a deposit.. so im wondering if i should invest a cpl hunred into tilt and stars? some of my friends tell me to try another method either way who has the right to tell me how and where and when and with whoom i use my credit card should be my buisness only--- i hate controling governments- im a proud usa citizen but this is to much....

You and I can't spend our money (I say our even though I have never made a deposit, only won freerolls) in online gambling because there are stupid people that can't control themselves and lose everything they got.

I love America, but I am getting tired of the stupid people ruining everything. Shouldn't the power be with the smart people? It seems you got to be retarded to get changes put in motion.

I've had this issue for a while now. But it wasn't the government who put a stop to buying in with your credit card. It's the credit card companies themselves.
I agree with you all, it's our money, we should have a say how we spend it.
So long as we are paying our bills, etc. For those with a gambling addiction who don't pay their bill, then the credit card companies should just cancel their cards.
Always the way though isn't it? The mass pay for the actions of a few.

The Federal Reserve is a private corporation. Therefore, the same forces that control it, control just about everything else, ex: pharmaceutics, insurance, banks, government positions, FBI, CIA etc...

The wizard(s) behind the curtain are to entrenched now to be able to do anything to change the direction were heading towards.

I'll stop this here because, i don't feel like getting into topics such as why are the millions of plastic coffins, stored and ready for use around the US.

People, i'm not even american and the above gives me the willies.
