Following their erroneous declaration that the online gambling world had won a decision in the state of Minnesota that would have Internet poker websites blocked, it seems as if the Poker Players Alliance has decided to take the weekend off.

Perhaps they have spent the time formulating a game plan to confront the latest policy facing online poker.  It is the first time that US law enforcement has specifically targeted an "online poker only" payment processor.

It was not immediately known if the PPA would issue a statement on Monday. 

The problem is that poker players have been left in limbo throughout the weekend while the PPA seemingly has decided to disappear Saturday and Sunday. 

Gambling911.com has learned that the US Attorney's office in New York is behind the recent issues related to Instant eChecks being cut off and checks bouncing from major online poker websites.  This is a federal matter.

The United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York represents the United States and its agencies in civil and criminal litigation before the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York .  The Office files well over 1000 criminal cases each year, and is one of the busiest prosecutor's offices in the federal system. 

The US Attorney's office out of New York has been especially aggressive in going after online gambling entities since 1998.  

This office has also gone after payment processors for online gambling in the past including Neteller, once the most popular payment platform for Internet gambling sites. Gambling911.com was the first to break that story in 2007.  

In addition they recently settled a dispute with PartyGaming.
