NETWORK: Everleaf Funds Seized
A short while after the Everleaf network announced its withdrawal from the US market in the wake of threats received from the US Dept. of Homeland Security, the US justice system has extended its long arms seizing some of the Everleaf funds which were destined to cover withdrawals made by US-based players. The withdrawal transactions have also been blocked, so US players are currently unable to recover any money from their Everleaf accounts.
The moves were based on money laundering allegations and the alleged violation of the Wire Act. The seizure only affects US players, none of Everleaf’s operations in other markets will be affected in any way. Everleaf poker rooms no longer accept US players, but the network’s management was keen to get the message out: all the US players whose accounts were affected by the seizure will be repaid in full.
