Electronic Notice by Claims Administrator Garden City Group to US Full Tilt Poker Player Victims re Fund Remission Process, Protocols, and Procedure.
On September 16th, 2013 the Full Tilt Poker Claims Administrator Garden City Group (GCG) began emailing electronic notices to all US Full Tilt Poker victims who are potentially eligible for fund remission.
Those receiving notices can file for remission starting 9/18. The Notice provides instructions for filing petitions online through the Full Tilt Poker Claims Administration website.
Those who do not receive such notification who believe they are eligible to participate in the poker player victim fund remission process may file a petition online using the online filing tab on the left sidebar of the GCG Claims Administration website located at: www.fulltiltpokerclaims.com on September 18, 2013.
THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A PETITION FOR REMISSION IS NOVEMBER 16, 2013 (THE “BAR DATE”). IF YOU FAIL TO SUBMIT A TIMELY AND COMPLETE PETITION FOR REMISSION, YOU WILL BE BARRED FROM RECEIVING A PAYMENT FROM THE FTP FUND.
Utilizing funds forfeited from PokerStars, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York and the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section (“AFMLS”) of the United States Department of Justice have established a Petition process by which eligible U.S. fraud victims can seek compensation for their losses.
The GCG will email to each Petitioner AFMLS’s determination concerning his or her Petition. If a Petition is denied in whole or in part, GCG will state the reason for such denial and the Petitioner can appeal the ruling through the reconsideration process.
Prior to the payment of funds to a Petitioner, GCG will provide the Petitioner’s Social Security or other Taxpayer Identification Number to the Government, in order to offset and collect any qualifying debts currently listed in the Treasury Offset Program Database.
