Apologies for lack of communication
After the lack of direct explanation and much speculation about the reasons why Everleaf Gaming (Everleaf Poker Network) decided to abandon the US market, the company has finally issued an official statement regarding the matter.
And despite the reassuring statements by Everleaf skin Luvin Poker, it has been confired that the US Department of Justice has actually seized unspecified funds, which only affects US players.
The statement reads: “As has been reported, certain funds maintained by one of our payment processors to be distributed to U.S. customers were seized by U.S. authorities. To our knowledge, the U.S. authorities seized these funds and blocked the transactions based on purported violations of certain U.S. laws, including operating an illegal money transmitting business, the Wire Act, and money laundering. Evidence relative to the subject can be reviewed from the attached papers.
“Please be advised that this seizure occurred in the United States and only affects U.S. players.
“In view of the above Everleaf will no longer accept U.S. players. None the less Everleaf reiterates and wants to reassure all the effected players that all the funds will be refunded in full and the effected parties will be contacted in a short while accordingly.
“For the other markets we operate in and with regards to all our other players we want to reassure you that nothing has changed and thank you for the continued business with our Company.
“We sincerely apologize for the lack of communication to date, but as a Company we were still trying to find our feet and assessing the situation at hand and how to best protect the interest of all the effected parties.
