Has Atlantic Interbet folded?

Not a direct response to any particular post. I played at AIB for more than 2 years and made many friends.

I continued to play at the casino when it was apparent to me that it was struggling, continually modified tournament formats, extremely slow payment etc, but that was my choice and my risk. That aside, the manner in which AIB has chosen to wind up its operations is an absolute disgrace, totally disrepectful of staff and players and one that, unfortunately, appears unique to this particular industry.

I especially wish Hrt and Shad good luck and extend my sympathies to these 2 people who were extremely friendly at all times, made the experience a pleasure and now find themselves without a job through no fault of their own. It would appear that good software and good staff obviously don't compensate for incompetencies at higher levels in the organisation.

Well, it's horrifying that employees are not interviewed face to face and security checked and that one's personal financial info can be acessed by a lot of unkown people!

I'm afraid that is probably the case with all the gambling sites using their own unique software. It costs money to do background checks, provide computer security, and so forth. Some companies are two people with a computer--like 1cnp.

Atlantic Interbet was using volunteers, that's being pretty cheap.

Actually thier system of using volunteers (who might eventually become paid employees) was a pretty good idea, and in my personal opinion, this was not what lead to thier downfall.

I sincerely hope these volunteers didn't have access to all my confidential info.

Why wouldn't they have told their own employees (the pits at AIB), let alone all of their very patient and loyal customers, that they were moving to Costa Rica instead of just shutting down without warning? They've been telling the customers that their money was all sent to them on 11/30, so why would they have to make payouts next week?

I wasn't going to respond but I read the comments from HRTofQUEEN and couldn't resist to make a response.
Before everyone passes out hankies to weep for the poor HRTofQUEEN lets share a little eye opener about the innocent HRT
Well, for starters she was Marks right hand person before he was caught stealing from the company. HRT had no problem kissing up to whoever was in charge at that time and Mark used that to his full advantage. She says how she didn't like the ones on the power trips but I gather she never looked in the mirror.
She was the biggest person on a power trip she was rude and obnoxious to most of the iB staff and to even ones that thought they were her friends. I will add that MsInnocent HRT was and intricate part of the password clicking scam where Mark was collecting money from interBet. So if you want to talk about the demise of iB and AIB you can start looking in her direction with her pal Mark. If they didnt steal from the business its possible interBet and AIB might still be here today.
It was that situation that started the roller ball of the casinos demises. I think as soon as she realized that she might go down with her friend Mark, she all of a sudden changed sides to David, the owner of iB. Its a shame David did not see right through her and her conniving ways.
Please don't let her fool you with all her self praises she wouldn't know how to be a loyal employee/person if it slapped her in the face.
Oh and if you were treated unfairly in AIB I would think she had full knowledge of it. Don't put anything past her and her devious ways.

What is this 'password clicking scam' you mentioned?? I've never heard of it.

JPM I will explain it to you. In order to get into the Suites you first had to go to various advertising sites, click on them, then get the password. Now, mind you, there were 15 suites for both the Atlantic City and Las Vegas sides. So you had to go to 30 different sites, click on them to get the passwords. It is such a coincidence that HRT and Mark got a piece of every click made by every patron. Also, the passwords changed every single day, and on rare occassions twice a day. Additionally, if you were to page someone to give them the passwords, instead of getting your message, they would receive a message saying "sending passwords is wrong and I wont do it". I must agree with Truth's post. She told everything just the way it was. HRT is a mean, cheating SOB. When I would be online she would IM me with very cruel statements. I did not kiss her butt and that infuriated her. So if anyone was on a Power Trip it was definitely HRTofQueen. If any other casino were to hire her, they should have their heads examined first.

Thanks for explaining that Linda, sounds like it was a major pain to use those if they changed every day! What was in the suites that would make you want to go thru the effort to get in to them?

Hi JPM...all the tournaments in IB were held in the Suites. So if you wanted to play in them, you had to have the passwords. Every tourney was played in a different Suite, making it necessary for you to get the new passwords every single day.

I thought Gambling911 had a post saying AIB would be back up and running from Costa Rica on January 15th. Anyone heard anything more on this?

I'm wondering why they aren't in the rogue list yet? Has anyone been paid what they are owed? (the vault winner alone is waiting for over $20,000!)

why can people go to the AIB web page and down load a casino that doesn't exist

Bump!

If you read today's forum announcement, or received Vortran's robot warning, you'd now know that all passwords and usernames have been compromised at this casino. I will be posting the list of marketing agencies that received this information as soon as I get the thumbs up that this is public record.

Bryan, I think that you need to post that whether it is 'public record' or not! I think all of the players from AIB are owed that, considering that their confidential information has been compromised in the most heinous way possible short of just posting all of their information on the web. The people who did this are the lowest form of life and should not be granted any courtesy by you whatsoever, and neither should the other scumbags who knowingly purchased this information.

Is this enough to finally put AIB on the rogue list? (just in case they ever manage to reopen)

Hi, AIB is up and running. They are offering a $200 sign up bonus. All the players that were ripped off when they closed unexpectedly in October of 2002, should file suit to get their money. Also, you can thank HrtofQueen (Faye) for stealing the information. She is a CM over at Bingomania and goes by the name of CMHrt. While at the bingo game one night, I asked her if she used to work at AIB, she said yes and asked who I was...Well, I would never tell her the truth since she and I were at each others throats due to her running and winning her own tournaments. Her nickname at AIB was "Enigma" and I was the one who told everyone what was going on. However, at AIB my name was Babykake, when she asked who I was, I gave her an alias of someone who used to play there (Hope). She immediately said, in open chat, well Hope you finally came...I sent everyone from AIB emails to tell them where I am working. So, she not only has everyone's email addresses, but she was also head of secuity at AIB. Therefore, since she was a 2 faced thief at AIB, I put all my money on HrtofQueen as the winner (even though she is actually a LOSER) of this horserace. Needless to say, if Bingomania hired her, they are not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
