Glad they didn't spend our money on a fancy site, at least.

Other than that front page, the links inside all direct users to a "To be added. Check back soon." page.

Re: DoJ announces FTP remissions claims administrator

This question may be obvious, but does anyone have insight into how the DoJ is paying the Garden City Group? Do we expect it to be from the $500 mil forfeited to the DoJ, as in the money potentially owed to US players?

Can't wait until they put up an example timeline, & a picture of what a remission check may look like.

the original deal said they were going to pay back players 'minus the cost of the reimbursement process'...so i'm going to guess that means the GCG is getting paid out of US players' pockets

Re: DoJ announces FTP remissions claims administrator

This has probably been asked before but, does the DOJ/GCG know the individaul players balances? I don't remember what my balance was to the dollar and after emailing FTP i got the following response.
Quote:
Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately we cannot provide your previous Full Tilt Poker balance or any information on previous deposits or cashouts, as customers within the United States are required to go through a remission process administered by the US Department of Justice for access to balance or funds.

Thank you for your understanding. If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know.

Regards,

Sophie
Full Tilt Poker Support

Re: DoJ announces FTP remissions claims administrator

I called the GCG hotline for Full Tilt Poker claims: (866) 250-2640

I spoke to Rayann, who had about zero information and pretty much just apologized a lot. She suggested that I sign up for the email notification, which I informed her was not working, after which she checked and said it should work within the next week.

I was mostly trying to get a sense of a timeline. She said that she did not have that information, and that they were relying on the DOJ to give them more info on the steps of the process (Uhg!!). I informed her that US players were already very upset with this whole process, but thanked her for her time.

That's about it for now. Will be interested to hear about others' calls/questions.
