Nope, they didn't give a precise number on the penalty % for instant cashout. Nor did they give a range.

Would they ask all of these players to sign a contract before they bought FT?

That should simplify any deal! If not I am sure once they open some will just request all of your money back.

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

I have been told they asked "How would you feel about getting your money immediately but paying a 50% penalty" or something close to that. Thats all I know.

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

50% Wow, well I guess if you really needed the money quick you couldn't be criticized for considering it. Seems like getting the total stuck BR ,in reasonable increments,might be the more popular method. Just hope something happens with these surveys positive!

I would totally convert everything into shares. A healthy and legal FTP that is ran well: gold mine in the future.

Agreed. What is the range of balances for people who are being contacted?

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

It's very hard to speculate about this without more concrete details. You can't say you would or wouldnt agree to some form of equity shares without knowing the terms and this applies to all. This phone call is strange because it is too speculative for them to get any meaningful results. Sign the deal with FTP and the DoJ and then sample players who know they will be getting money about different methods. Right now, everyone cares about a deal first and terms second, AS THEY SHOULD.

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

Are they only calling former players with stuck BRs or are they calling all types of players from a general list? If they are only calling "stuck" players then at least they have some decent records (hopefully) of what is owed to whom!

In after phone cawl.

Woman relayed the options that have been listed in this thread; I said I'd be down for receiving money in installments over a year, and possibly down for receiving immediately at 80c on the $, at best.

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

I had a missed call from +33 1 42 66 50 75 (Paris no.). They left no message. I'm in the UK. Thought it was related to my folks in some way as they live over there but they hadn't tried to contact me.

I googled the number and came up with this http://www.pageinsider.com/acquis.fr which links to this: http://www.acquis.fr/welc.htm

May be completely unrelated but thought I'd share as I have money tied up in FT

Re: FTP Spanish players contacted by Group Bernard Tapie partner by phone

I was called in UK from 331 4266 3621.

Five figures on FTP. Same questions but they didn't say what percentage writeoff.

Agree the questions are badly designed as without knowing what percentage writeoff, how many shares in the proposed company (and how it would be structured etc) they are not going to get meaningful responses.

When they called I could hear a telecentre type operation with others in the same room making similar calls.

They could consider giving out a slightly higher rakeback % to those that would take unlocking cashouts or penalties.
