    Just as with PokerStars, Full Tilt and Cereus the feds seized their domains as well.

    I guess they do not care to see if the case they have against the others is a winner. FWIW this came out of Maryland, not SDNY.

    Dang... what a party the DOJ has cooked up this year! Everybody's invited... :eek2: And here's another article from You must register/login in order to see the link..


    At least I'm not totally crazy for thinking the feds might be setting up phony processsing...

    Anyone familiar with this "You must register/login in order to see the link.." of the fed's? Or would that be purely from the casino end of the payment processing? What about it casino reps? QT?

    Protectionism at it's finest. I'll bet the government attorneys involved all have highly paid positions waiting for them at the casinos as soon as they retire from government....

    Homeland Security Special Agent Lisa Ward at it again ...
    The same person who brought down a key ACH processor for the top poker brands not quite two years ago (Electracash).

    This is why QT has stopped payments.

    Chargestream is QT

    Lots0, is that in the indictments? Does it mention anything directly about QT or just their bank accounts being among those seized? I'm trying to figure out where they found that.

    In the affidavit
    sections 10 & 11 of the bank account seizures.

    it shows QT's accounts in the Netherlands were nabbed.

    Eco Card and Chargestream are mentioned on page 10. I'm having a devil of a time getting that scrolly poly page thing to work, and can't C&P. Also won't let me download...

    It took a while but I managed to skim through most of it. This just plain sucks. I am so sick and tired of being told what to do and how to do it. I can go blow my children's inheritance at an Indian casino and the DOJ doesn't give a rat's ass...I want to spend $50 online at a reputable gambling site and I'm not allowed (God forbid if I won over $1200 the IRS wouldn't get their cut). :mad::mad::mad::mad::(:(:(:(

    I read it. I had a hard time too. Basically Ecocard, parent of QT/UMW, went to this bogus processor Linwood and set up processing for U.S. payments. They had two bank accounts seized. Presumably this is the reason players have not been getting paid for a few weeks.

    I don't understand how they can seize funds in the Netherlands !?! Is Interpol involved now?

    I find the Affiant's statement of qualifications laughable. She certainly has not "...been a Special Agent with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for twenty years..." unless HSI has been around longer than the Patriot Act.

    A material fabrication?

    Think of all of the seized money they stole will more than cover the investigation. Also, you know that bogus processor they made up profited a fortune.

    Ya and I'll bet all those feds lawyers will all have well paying jobs waiting for them in the land based casinos... after all Maryland land based casinos had a record month in profits last month... now they don't have to worry about those 'evil' online casinos cutting into their profits next month will even be better...

    The idea that the police can seize money and then keep it.. should be illegal.

    But here in America.. Prosecution for Profit is the way it is.

    Sad to say these places will probably get hit twice as hard as Stars, Tilt etc because of the sting operation and the vast amount of evidence they probably have against the operators.

    It's going to be a bad year for US players I suspect. After this second lot I can see the majority of operators pulling the plug on the states.

    It's going to be even more difficult for the casinos to find processors now... unless of course they're set up by our gov. LMAO... As we've seen, if you help process the money, you've got to be prepared for arrest, seizure of all funds (whether it came from what you're accused of or not), seizure of everything you own, jail time, lawyers, blahblahblah.

    And WTF did they need an 'informant' for?? Makes gambling sound more evil and underground, I suppose. Hell, I fully believe half the DOJ and FBI have as many gambling accounts as I do.

    Well, at least we all know how we can safely play poker and the slots... work for the DOJ and/or HomelandInsecurity. They have their own processing and will let you play all you want.... Funny how 'money laundering' is illegal if someone else does it, but it's an 'undercover operation' (that makes a LOT of money) for 2 YEARS when the DOJ does it. :p
