I think it is time to go to Australian/Queensland courts, and put a civil action against Tusk/simpartners to know what is going on and fight for your monies.

This silence by simpartners is very suspicious and i think that they may have some kind of shady deal with Tusk for a soft liquidation.

They dont have to say ****, there accountantas not police theer getting paid to sort out the money........ Your all being silly TUSK are gone simpartneres took care of that if if if we get a % back be happy if microgaming dont cough up the rest be mad. Im happy that your keeping the tread alive but what yous are going on about is bs. If you have lots of money in ther get a lawyer n launch some action. Im not trying to be bad here i have 1400 in there if i had 10+ id be getting to court n if those of you who have that dont your wasteing your time. What were doin here is showing the regs what theyve see for the last 3months. If there are a few people here that can make up 100k in funds stuck ***** get togeather and call tehm to court.

Its simple to me tusk get sims to sort the books give us back a tiny % to keep within the law. The guy is a ***** billionaire has people to do this **** for him. Cop on n wake up n stop talkin ****e. What do we do ?

We could be waiting for a while longer...

I've just read the relevant sections of the International Companies Act in Vanuatu http://www.paclii.org/vu/legis/num_act/ica1992246/

Part 12 is relevant to winding-up a company. Section 100 is the most depressing. Part (2) reads:

(2) Notwithstanding Subsection (1)(h), a liquidator shall not, without the permission of the court, carry on for a period in excess of two years the business of a company that is being wound up and dissolved under this Act.

As this is in legislation, the courts cannot force a liquidator to "hurry up" until the liquidation period exceeds two years.

PS. I'm not a lawyer so don't take this as legal advice. I'm probably wrong. Consult a real lawyer.

2p2 accepts ads from Eurolinx and Doyle's IIRC, so they have a financial interest in keeping Microgaming alive and well.

On another note, the liquidators seem to have stopped responding to any inquiries. They used to respond very promptly, although they never gave any real information. Now they just won't answer e-mails.
Yeah, I said somewhere above that I'd sent a bunch of emails asking for confirmation that they got my proof of debt form...never got a reply. Also sent a bunch asking for any updates, didn't hear anything back.

Great to hear this could go to court though.

Just called them again... "they're not in right now"... I'm suppose to get a callback next week but I'm not sure if that's happening. So I'll probably start calling them again next week a couple of times again....

Does anyone know if it would be worth my while contacting my local English police station with regards to this debacle?

Amazingly I got a phonecall this morning (was asleep but not yet in REM) from the Liquidators. I was happy that I got a callback so if you really want to talk to them it's still possible.

He told me that they were still waiting for the Proofs of Debts (wow what a surprise) and that there still was no time-frame. After a little bit of talking and saying how lot of people will not send in their POD because they have very little money in their account he told me that they are going to take 1 or 2 more months to allow people to send in their POD. So it looks like there is going to be AT LEAST 2 months of absolutely nothing happening.

Well, this is several orders of magnitude better than nothing, at least.

I emailed them my stuff and asked for confirmation. They confirmed the next day. Maybe try emailing them again.

Maybe they would get more POD's if they sent out another e-mail to everyone with accounts saying that they need to fill out the POD's. If they expect that 4 months later people that haven't filled it out yet are going to suddenly send them all in, they are idiots.

I'll be extremely surprised if we hear anything before the end of the year.

Precisely what I was going to say, I'm glad i read your post first. Unless maybe they are also including non-poker-account debtholders.

In any case, thanks much for doing that Robin_Ripper. I'll let you river me for free sometime.

I'm sure we'd all be appreciative if you nagged them again when you have a chance. You seem to be the sole source of news at the moment!

I still say they don't need the proofs of debt from account holders anyway. They have the full list of who is owed what, and everybody who sends in proof is essentially getting the figure from the same list anyway. They should send emails to everybody acknowledging the account balance at $x and only worry about proofs if people disagree.

FTR I never received a single email from my poker skin. I'm guessing there are many players out there who have no idea that a liquidation is in the process... Many of these skins have already shut down too so contacting players is probably out of the question now unless MGS decided to send out emails.

Like I said before I figure at least 20-30% of active accounts never fill this out.
