Did you move within the past few years? The only way I found out was cuz gthe sent me a postcard. And thank goodness FT left off my apt #, cuz I moved within the same building a year ago. So rather a 'return to sender' cuz the apt # was wrong, the mailman just had to look for my apt. Anyway...
""Dear Beverly XXXXXXXX:
The purpose of this email is to inform you that your Petition for Remission has been approved and you are entitled to receive a distribution from the assets forfeited in connection with United States v. PokerStars, et al., pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
A payment in the amount of $893.56 [yeah, kinda ridiculous considering the low stakes I played] will be paid electronically via ACH to the bank account that you specified in your Petition. This payment represents the full amount of your Full Tilt Poker Account Balance, which you confirmed on the Full Tilt Poker administration online filing site. Payment will be made within the next seven business days.
If you have any questions, you can call us toll-free at (866) 250-2640, email us at www.FullTiltPokerClaims.com (http://www.FullTiltPokerClaims.com)."
YAY! I was sure I'd never see that money again. Also had a lot of FTPs, over 28,000 points (I'd guess worth roughly $250 - $300) for spending at the FT store that are sadly gone forever.
Also had a whole bunch (18?) of qualifier tickets for $2k freerolls
at Poker Stars. If they ever let the U.S. back in, is my account still there in good standing - just can't touch it?
Luckily I have just $100+ or so there. Sure hope they get that crap ruling reversed.
