+1. just received the call. Belgium-french woman asking the Qs. very unclear Dutch she spoke. I answered the Qs truhfully eventhough I really doubt it is really a magazine. But if it is FTP/Tapie it might increase chances of getting $ back.

Is LivePoker a reputable company?

No one is going to answer about his funds to an anonymous survey. And most of them have not answered such private questions by the way.

Our colleague, who recieved the call being at our offices, also confirm that the operator identified himself as LivePoker representative.
Hmm, so as I can tell you only have their word that the person speaking to players is a Livepoker representative. Could this be verified in any way, by contacting LP magazine perhaps?

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

You guys that have been called: how much stuck do you have on your accounts?

-->to know if they call only people with over x$ in account, or if they call just about anyone.

Thay are pickpicking players with substantial amounts of money stuck in FTP. Obv, they have been filtering FTP database.

As we started to discuss this issue in our forums, some players were well aware of the situation when they received the phone call. They asked about how their data was collected and by whom and the operator was no eager to answer.

Until the relationship between GBT and PokerLive was clear we could not explain how FTP db was leaked. In that moment, everything fit in place. Our first thought was that this could be an scam or that FTP have sold the data.

We have been trying to contact LivePoker without success.

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

if things progress forward, i presume american players would have to be paid in full before reopening and these possibilities would pertain to ROW players?

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

Its all speculation at the moment, but you could easily imagine a staged repayment scheme being applicable to all players, US and non-US.

This would have the effect of reducing the amount of money that the Tapie group has to find up front, so you can see the advantages from their point of view.

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

I find it unsettling that a supposedly serious acquirer is resorting to cloak and dagger techniques to gather information.

But yeah, those who have been called, report how much you have locked up.
