All "Potentially" Eligible Claimants Will Reportedly Be Contacted by TuesdayPublished on September 16th, 2013 3:30 pm EST
The Garden City Group ("GCG") has started sending out emails to all "potentially eligible victims of FTP's fraud", who have been identified "utilizing data supplied by FTP".
According to FullTiltPokerClaims.com, all of the emails are expected to be sent out by tomorrow (Tuesday, September 17th). On Wednesday, September 18th, people will be able to submit a Petition for Remission.
GCG is including login details with each email that will be needed to submit a Petition for Remission.
The deadline to submit a Petition for Remission is November 16th, 2013. According to GCG, any people missing this deadline will be barred from receiving any funds.
A few things of interest from the email that GCG is sending out.
To start, here are the official Eligibility Criteria:
You must be a U.S. citizen or you must have resided in the United States at the time of playing on the FTP gaming site.
You did not receive compensation as a foreign FTP player in connection with the PokerStars Settlement.
You must have deposited funds into an account with FTP.
Your account with FTP must reflect a balance owed by FTP to you as of April 15, 2011.
You are excluded from participation in the remission process if you are:
A past or present employee of FTP or any of its past or present affiliates;
A past or present vendor of FTP that received compensation through FTP players’ accounts;
A past or present Team Full Tilt player;
A past or present shareholder of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd.;
A past or present officer or director of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd., or any of their past or present affiliates;
A defendant in any civil action or a claimant in any forfeiture action brought by the Department of Justice related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities); or
A person who, as of the Bar Date, has been the subject of criminal charges related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities).
Another point of interest - GCG will require a Social Security or other Taxpayer Identification Number in order to process the Petition for Remission. Any "qualifying debts" that are currently owed by a person to the government (outstanding taxes, etc) will be subtracted from any outstanding balances.
