That should be on my list as well. I was unaware of this one as I never completed my petition. I only have 18 cents balance on FTP.

Received that a few minutes ago after submitting an email request using the template in these threads... So on a scale of 100% screwed, 90% screwed, etc., how screwed are the regular red pros?

Yes I will still be filing a petition on their site eventually, just going to wait a bit longer for the smoke to clear and hoping somehow the GCG gets convinced to change their view.

Re: Full Tilt claims submission: Sept. 16th - Nov. 16th

I am crossposting this in both the NVG thread and here.

Hi Guys,

I had emailed GCG a few times to the info@ email address and still not heard back from them with a petition and control #. 3-4 days ago.

I just got off the phone with them again and there appears to be a shift in policy and it seems that if they have your petition and control #'s available they will provide them over the phone. I got mine.

I went on to fill out the information. There are several things that are worth noting.

0. My amount was as expected based on May 20, 2013. They must believe that the tournament tickets and other things that were available to you on April 15 included these amounts in your April 15 balance.
1. You will need your bank address. For my bank this is where I opened the account.
2. You will need the bank ACH routing number. This is not necessarily your checking account routing number. For my bank it is not the same.
3. You appear not to be able to go in and edit information after you have submitted. I have no idea what process follows if you mess up any of these details but I would guess at some point you will be able to edit the information if you made mistakes.

Best,
zero

Re: Full Tilt claims submission: Sept. 16th - Nov. 16th

This is the last email I've received since submitting my balance claim documentation.

Quote:
Dear Petitioner,

Thank you for your email. All submitted documentation will be evaluated as part of the balance determination process. All approved Petitioners who confirm their FTP Account Balance will be paid after the Bar Date and after GCG has reviewed submitted Petitions. Funds will be paid electronically via ACH to the bank account provided with your Petition for Remission.


Regards,

Claims Administrator (MB)

Is this a good sign that my uploaded document for proof of balance has been accepted? It doesn't say whether I've been confirmed or denied.

BTW, thanks PPA and PPA reps for helping us in this matter.

No, it doesn't mean that. It just means that they received your completed petition. They probably won't review your petition until after the bar date.

The issue isn't GCG--they're just following the DOJ's directives. My suspicion is that the DOJ is lumping everything into one basket (anyone who was a pro), so the fight for people like you will be long and hard.

You may need to hire an attorney familiar with remission claims. He or she might be able to present your supporting documentation in a way that will lead to a better chance of your claim being approved, in part or in whole.

Not sure if this has been posted, I don't read this thread anymore, but I did not get an email with a petition number initially. So on sept. 19th I sent am email saying I should have, and they replied with my petition and control number that should have been sent out. And it had my ending balance (was missing my never received withdrawls check) but at least I got something out of It. Hopefully helps people who may not have gotten the email.

Thanks! I did not get the second email containing the P&C's. I just sent email to info@FullTiltPokerClaims.com to hopefully have mine sent. Are they pretty much done sending out the P&C's?

Re: Full Tilt claims submission: Sept. 16th - Nov. 16th

I didn't get an email from them. I called and spoke to someone and was told I'd get a call back. That didn't happen. This past Sunday I emailed saying I didn't receive anything and included a new e-mail address in case hotmail was bouncing it. 5 business days later they replied back to my old (hotmail) email with the P&C. Glad this drama is to rest...for now...

Is it possible to get them to look at it earlier by bugging them via phone/email? Their offer was $6,000 below my actual balance (3 in transit cashouts), so I'm pretty anxious about whether they liked my "proof" of the discrepancy or if they might want some additional documents.

Highly unlikely they will do anything other than to tell you to wait. They have to get all petitions before they can do any payouts. Even then, they may have to resolve all disputes and appeals before they do any payouts. Just the standard legal process for a remission.

Re: Full Tilt claims submission: Sept. 16th - Nov. 16th

I understand that the payouts to everyone will all come at the same time, some number of months after the end of the window for claiming. I am very interested to find out whether they accepted my disputed balance or not before then.

There should be a lot of people in the same situation as me, maybe the PPA is already looking into it. Anyone who requested a cashout via check from April 1-15 or so will be shortchanged by GCGs table lookup. My April 1 check actually arrived in the mail on April 15th and was written against a nonexistent account (i.e. seized).

If they don't accept your remission request you will be able to appeal their decision. There first decision will not be final.
