Alderney Gambling Control Commission

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission released a statement on Monday to customers of Full Tilt Poker, offering very little in the way of solace.  On June 29, the licensing agency had temporarily suspended FTP’s license, noting the company had failed to pay US players following indictments by Feds in that country.  Charges against executives of Full Tilt Poker included money laundering and bank fraud. 

Six months later, the AGCC essentially advised players to contact their local police department.

The agency noted on Monday that it no longer had the power to "intermediate or arbitrate on player issues or disputes with Full Tilt."

Here is the reprinted statement in full:

Following the revocation of the licenses, AGCC no longer has authority to intermediate or arbitrate on player issues or disputes with Full Tilt (excepting for players registered under a Swiss address). Players may have the following alternative options:

•    Full Tilt has been requested to provide a specific player contact: this is awaited and will be incorporated here upon receipt.

•    Any player who believes they are a victim of crime, as a result of their dealings with Full Tilt, should in the first instance contact their own local police in their country of residence and report the matter to them. These reports will then be coordinated centrally.

•    It is understood that a number of civil actions have been initiated by players against Full Tilt, some as class actions representing multiple players by UK, U.S. and Canadian lawyers. Details of the firms concerned can be found through Internet search.
