FBI Moves In On Full Tilt  0   
The UIGEA deadline of June is approaching and many FBI agents have been involved in a crackdown on illegal online gambling. Although the regulation is not to be enforced until June, the FBI has been discovered showing up houses of online poker players and questioning players on how they deposit their money into the online gambling accounts. Full Tilt has been managed several times and is definitely a target of their investigations.

Currently online poker sites are operating on a knife edge in the USA. Once a scapegoat is made, the whole industry will go down since it means that everybody else is guilty. Washington State’s laws are particularly more dangerous that other states since it is in this state that online gambling rooms seem to be breaking the most rules, especially online poker.

This one will be intersting. We will see, if Full Tilts construction is bullet proof, or if the law enforces will find a trick to catch them.

Big question is what the f** is the FBI doing with a company that is based on *Canada*. One has to wonder since when "federal" means "international" or anything like that

And the thing about showing up in player houses is harassment and grounds for a biiiig lawsuit

I find it hard to believe that the FBI is going to peoples home and asking them how they deposit, what reason does the FBI have and how would they know someone made a deposit on full tilt unless they were being investigated for some big crime and if they did they would already know by checking them out

this dont make since

I just think that the online gambling companies will move to another country, probably one in Europe. More bonuses for us europeans. Blink

Oh dear ... I dont think I really know what the implications of such an investigation will bring to the average man on a PC?
Cant see much changing for us "the little players" but for the owners of the sites? there could be far reaching reforms? Possibly a switch in the tax they will pay? I'm really not sure what they could do to gain from the huge online gaming boom coz at the end of the day if there was under kined cheating or imbezlement they would just be shut down so I feel thats not on the cards but if the goverment could get in on the act then they could gain financially for sure.
SO get ready for all the rakes to go up... to pay off the bills... Big Smile

it looks some serious problem for us poker players and poker sites allowing us players.
hope fulltilt and other poker sites have their system foolproof but it'll be hard to get away with this if they start going to every home and asking them for transaction details
