As long as there is a chance I will get my money back I dont give a **** if they have my phone number...
That is very naive imo ... ever wondered how the f##k they actually got that phone number? This is confidential data from a poker site and if that survey was done with someone from outside FTP or Tapie, it is a HUGE RED FLAG that information might have been sold or given away and that is a no go.

One thing is for sure, if they call me I will politely tell them where they can stick their survey. No idea how people can see this as a good sign of things to come. Get a grip!

Compared to this deal falling through, FTP going real broke, and thus receiving 5ct on the dollar in the next 5 years ..... HELL YEAH


And I couldn't care less that they use personal data of me to get some more info. I just want my money back.

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

I think being upset about your info is unnecessary. Obviously tapie has access to all of full tilts info. They are in the process of buying the company. They are now taking survey's to see which path would experience the least resistance (as stated previously). You should be happy.

I think some people are worried that full tilt sold their info to some 3rd party. No person would sell their info whil ethe company is in the process of being purchased.

Relax guys.

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

So GBT are trying to figure out a way to get everybody paid(eventually) and testing which method the players prefer and somehow this is bad news?

It's all a matter of perspective...

seems pretty obviously illegal if they've actually given confidential info to a third party

Please explain to me how getting a percentage of OUR money is fair.

edit: To clarify, I'd take $.80/$ in a heartbeat. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't get 100%.

Maybe ftp dialed the numbers on behalf of the investors and tapie just had his ppl listen in and advise the ppl at ftp to ask certain questions

They don't need to know balances. They can INFER that the balances are above a certain threshold by what people volunteer to post in this thread, but that's it.

And I agree it'd be illegal in some places. Not all though. For example, I know that if you sign up to accept newsletters in Sweden, you implicitly accept you can receive SMS messages too. I have no idea what the rules are in Spain, Holland or Germany (the three countries mentioned so far). I doubt it's coincidence that we're only seeing posts from three countries.

Finally, it's totally standard to use a third party for surveys. The vast majority of surveys I've ever seen have done so. You'd have to dig around in T&C to see precisely what different sites state, but I'd bet most places allow this kind of thing or similar where legal.

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

there's nothing fair about what the old FTP owners did...

if you'd rather get 5% from the american government in 5 years then by all means you can pray that tapie fails at any of his options.

I'll be personally be hoping that ftp gets back up and people get paid most of their money and as soon as possible.

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

I would love to know if any of the people going "boo they gave people some phone numbers to do due diligence" actually have any money on FTP? Pretty sure if you were FTP and the Tapie group said "we need to talk to some of the people you owe a lot of money to first" you wouldn't go "no way, forget it, deal off, we'll wait around another 6 months and hope someone pops up who will buy the site with no due diligence, cya". Pretty sure the players with lots of money don't care whatsoever about getting calls.

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

Ever thought they are posing as a 3rd party to get a more honest answer? There are lots of ways this could be gone about and most of you are overreacting like crazy. Unless you want them to instill a repayment method that would make everyone go ape****?

If it is truly from GBT associates, it's a godamn survey about their players ' opinions. Stop being so freaking suspicious. It's not that they have given your info to your local police department, neither that someones are planning to empty your accounts. As far as I know, the info I have on FTP is not enough for anyone to take advantage of my assets, other than bugging me with ads and promotions.

To the point at which we are, the least that concerns me is that my information is being used in order to complete a deal. I am just thinking how and when I will see my money again.

+1. Although I do get a good laugh out of the people who think that a name and phone number will get their identity stolen lol.
