Was just reported on CNBC a few minutes ago. Major sites charged with fraud.

This is what is so frustrating about twitter, why can't they at least link an article or something with more information?

Re: fulltiltpoker.com & pokerstars.com domain names confiscated by FBI (also ub.com)

are they shutting down the websites or the entire poker client?
If they are shutting down the poker client, what about all the legal european, australian, asian etc players who have nothing to do with the stupid uiega crap. How does that affect all the legal players?

Brobama does what he wants. I just don't understand how they could block access to it from countries where online gambling is legal. Last round of domain seizures was Department of Homeland Security and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement going after bootleg music, movies, and software domains.

I'm in CA, and it looks fine... WHICH IT ****ING SHOULD BE BECAUSE POKER IS LEGAL HERE!!
About 0% chance this is due to state differences imo, probably just the DNS not updated yet.

I get the FBI warning within EU, and someone from UK posted that its the same for him. (Stars has a valid UK license i think?) Would be quite weird if its blocked in EU and working in some US states.
