Feds Move to Seize Assets Belonging to Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson

US Federal authorities have moved to seize assets belonging to Full Tilt Poker pros Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer and Rafe Furst.  The three were named as defendants in a civil complaint alleging they were part of an elaborate “ponzi scheme” related to Full Tilt Poker.

The Feds claim that the three men pilfered the company to pay their bloated salaries by removing funds belonging to customers. 

According to the US Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York, five accounts associated with those individuals have since been restrained

•    All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered GB81 RBOS 6095 4234087766 held at NatWest, in the name of Raymond Bitar, and all funds traceable thereto;

•    All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered 7655741861 held at Wells Fargo Bank N.A. in the name of HH Lederer Consulting LLC, and all funds traceable thereto; and
All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered GB56LOYD30166314010402 held at Lloyds TSB International, Isle of Mann, in the name of Howard Lederer, and all funds traceable thereto;

•    All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered 40039049628 held at Citibank N.A., in the name of Chris Ferguson, and all funds traceable thereto; and

•    Account numbered CH87 0875 5057068400100 held at Pictet & Co Bankers, Switzerland, in the name of Telamonian Ajax Trust, and all funds traceable thereto.

WickedChopsPoker.com noted that the inclusion of Rafe Furst’s Telamonian Ajax Trust should put to rest the industry rumors that he’s “the one” who flipped and provided the Fed with some of the detailed information regarding Tilt and its shareholders listed in the civil amendment.
