Full Tilt Poker Store

Quadjacks.com reported exclusively on Monday morning that Scott Lederer, a cousin of Howard Lederer, started the popular Full Tilt Poker store and merchandising arm of what was once the world’s second largest online poker company. 

On April 15, two of FTP’s co-founders were indicted by US authorities, charged with bank fraud and money laundering.  On June 29, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission suspended the company’s license. 

Howard Lederer has long been the primary “face” of Full Tilt Poker.  Revelations regarding the cousin suggest the Lederer family had a much more expansive role in the enterprise.

The company was started between 2003 and 2004 by Scott Lederer.  His company was called "Eyecon Marketing Group" and employed only two people.  It acted as a liaison between other vendors and did not actually engage in the production of merchandise.
