Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

That would be great except for the part about the DOJ caring about the players. They don't, they just aren't allowed to come out and say that.

Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

"A group of eight high-stakes poker players have filed a RICO complaint against Excapsa Software, claiming that employees of the former owners of Ultimate Bet stole at least $20 million from plaintiffs and other high-stakes poker players."

"The group of plaintiffs, which include poker pros Brad Booth, Tom Koral, Dustin Woolf and Daniel Smith, claim they lost $2 million during games in which their hole cards were accessible to Ultimate Bet employees playing under mysterious user names. Lead plaintiff Daniel Ashman says the cheating scandal has "been the subject of intense public interest and scrutiny."

Good luck Brad, I remember listening to your story on that "other site" back when the Makar stuff came out, really gross stuff. If anyone deserves a refund it's you guys.

At the end of the two year period the board, made up of shareholders, would appoint a CEO and the whole thing would be run as any other company.

A totally daft idea, perhaps, but considering the loyalty of its player base, even after a couple of scandals, perhaps the only viable way of ensuring that everyone either gets their money back or at least gets value for their money.

I would be heavily in favour, especially if the site reverted to the old pre-Cereus UB skin, complete with mini view, much as is now being used by ClubWPT.

I speak as I find: the old UB was a brilliant site, quick, smooth, regular bonuses which did not expire, cash for points and quick withdrawals, usually within 24hrs, and without fuss.

Oooh, I can't help it - sod the whales, save UB!! :-)
I'm up for any and all suggestions as long as it entails me getting MY MONEY back in full.

Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

Since no one seems to be in contact with DoJ and there are no real news(other than random gossip) in over 6 months I have decided to come forward with a good way to a,get Scott Tom and all his collegues into prison and b, get our money back.

The answer is simple : We buy Doug the Bounty hunter send him all the files and pics we got posted previously on 2+2 and watch how is ass is kicked

Re: Can we discuss Cereus specifically?

anyone else think Gui_Gui might be friends with the owners? He ran like god on this site, wouldn't shock me if he has all his funds out already.
