Re: Erick Lindgren Owes >$100k for 2p2 Fantasy Drafts, Won't Pay, Claims "Cash Broke"

What a scumbag. But this just proves how hard it is to survive in poker. All these top pros going broke even with almost $9M in lifetime earnings. Does anyone here feel they can win $9M in lifetime earnings? Even if you do...you'll end up busto.

Sick though.

Tell this bum to do golf course bets. Sad to know E-Dog doesn't have extra 100 dimes.

Do you prefer paypal or a check?

XXXX

Jan 13

Can we work this out and get it finished? I settled up with everyone else weeks ago.

Thanks,
XXXX

Jan 17

i'm not trying to be difficult, but I am owed money and I would like it. The season was over a while ago. I don't really want to make this a painful process. We aren't talking about a lot of money here...

Jan 17

I apologize for the delay, holidays and now moving has tied me up timewise and cashwise. I will have it out to you as soon as i can, no later than next week.

Erick


Jan 17

Thanks

Jan 26

Hey, was this check sent out? Thanks, XXXX

Jan 30

I'm getting pretty impatient over this. $2,800....

I really don't want to make a big deal out this....

Jan 31

Sorry family was in town. Will get a check out to you tomorrow.


Feb 6


Just got back in town sorry. It went out today.


Feb 13

uh, i dont think it went out. Haven't gotten it.

Feb 15

This is my last polite request for a check for the money that I was owed 2 months ago. Paypal is fine as well.

Thanks,
XXXX

Feb 22

Hey Man,

I have been really patient and really nice. I'll give you until the end of the week to get my money or I'm sending an email our with our conversations to every poker player I know, posting on 2+2 and possibly hiring a lawyer.

Feb 24

Hey man just seeing your emails, sorry have been insanely busy with 3 month old, moving and getting back to playing. You have every right to do whatever you would like but i do promise I can get a check in the mail by tomorrow. I am in LA but have to go home tonight after poker to take care of some things. Hope that is ok.

Erick

I'm not trying to be a jerk, and I don't really want to be difficult. I just want a check. If you want to give cash to someone in vegas, that's fine too. Paypal is fine as well.

Feb 27

Was this sent or are you just enjoying your time in LA?

Today

Is this really happening? I'm a fan, been rooting for you for 10 years. I think it's cool to be in a fantasy league with you....and you are going to stiff me on 2k? It's a god damn check you have to mail out.

I figured after FTP collapsed there was no way he'd be able to pay me if I won again this year so I took no side action w/ him this past season. I feel for the guys that did.
sigh. things like this are worth sharing when people are discussing sidebets in leagues, no?

How is that a "great track record for paying"? It's taking him until next season to pay up? That's an awful track record!

A great track record means you pay up immediately, every time.

Sigh that's the type of communication you would expect from a rogue microstakes horse Jared not a supposedly top member of the poker world.

$2800 should be like pocket change for him.

What a douche.

People who take on debts/bets and then try their best to avoid paying them are the lowest of the lows. And now Erick Lindgren is officially in that category.

Wow Edog really comes off as scum in those email exchanges. Can't even man up and say

1) He owes it
2) He's sorry he doesn't have it right now
3) It's important to him to pay these debts as soon as possible

Instead he makes excuses and lies. Pure class.

It was my assumption that there was a chance he wouldn't be able to pay if he lost but I had no hard facts that he wouldn't be able to do so. Also like Bruck and a few others mentioned, he always settled his debts, even though it took awhile, so I didn't want to go telling people he couldn't pay if he lost because, well, I didn't know for sure.

Like most, I assumed his reputation would be very important to him and he'd eventually pay everybody, but I just took the cautious route and elected not to have any side action w/ him last season.

Yo Edog You need money for your kids diapers......**** YOU PAY ME!

You need money for David Benyamines EX WIFE to go to LUXURY SPA....**** YOU PAY ME

You need the money to back your broke horses and to enter tournaments yourself.....**** YOU PAY ME

This is how you guys need to act torwards Erick Lindgren(AKA E-Dog)the scum that makes bets he cant cover. He had more then enoguh time. This isnt an IOU league.

Yo straight tell him just like this, Yo E Dog **** YOU PAY ME

PS-Karma is a biotch EX FT Team. Your all gonna get it in the end. All your money is ours you till you payback what you stole. I gurantee KARMA will hit you all!

rofl this is a joke?

if lindgren can't pay 2.8k, that pretty much means that every live pro is basically broke.
