      Hi all,

      I just heard the news of Full Tilt and Pokerstars and the FBI ect.............

      so i just tried to log into Full Tilt and I cant update the software so it wont start.....

      so i went to Full Tilt.net and downloaded the software and installed.......

      when i log in and go to the cashier my money is gone! no money at all , no deposit buttons, and worst of all no explanation! no email, no pop up, no news in the message bar!

      I'm in the UK so this shouldnt affect me Pokerstars is fine , nice pop up explains no need to worry in uk, but Full Tilt nothing!

      Where has my money gone? will i get it back? WTF?

      Please somebody here enlighten me as to what is going on here. Has your money gone too?


      EDIT : UPDATE

      FullTilt.co.uk downloaded software which updated the Full Tilt . COM version and let me login and the CASHIER WORKED.

      MONEY and POINTS are there .........sorry for alarming anybody

      It seems FULL TILT .CO.UK and .NET are different glad i persisted

      panic over
      I'm Furious

      Are you sure it's safe? All you see are some numbers on the screen. I'm still waiting for my cashout as are many others...

      I would say if the US can shut down FT and PS and seize their bank accounts, then you aren't going to get your money back unless you shout loudly to your politicians to do something against the US DOJ and they care enough to act on your behalf.

      but can the FBI seize bank accounts not in the US?

      Not sure anyone knows 100% right now. Depending on how much the money matters to you, withdraw some and leave some on the sites. I'd feel a lot more confident on Stars than UB though.

      Yeah I think I'll remove 80% of both. Leave just enough for a normal session with a couple of extra buy ins. Then small redeposits if needed.

      Am sure they can't touch me at all. But as I've read here and other forums. If the pokersite gets a hefty fine or whatever and go under then obviously I'll lose everything. UB is defo more risk then stars. Might get over to party, ongame or something

      afaik as long as ftp.eu and pokerstars.eu are seperate branches of the company, the fbi cant touch em.

      I have no qualms with playing on either atm. not worried.

      I'm still playing on Stars atm and not too worried about it.
      Although I only have a small BR, not sure how I would feel if I had a substantial amount on there.
