Full Tilt Poker begins sending out emails to customers
Friday, 14 September 2012
According to members of the online poker community at the 2+2 forums, Full Tilt Poker has been sending emails to customers requesting ID verification in preparation for the site's scheduled November relaunch.
The e-mails are legitimate and have been confirmed by FTP's Poker Room Manager Shyam Markus, who tweeted "I can confirm Support's confirmation, email is legit. Don't worry if you didn't get one, was only sent to a small group".
According to the e-mail, "Providing valid documentation now will ensure that your account is fully verified and active upon re-launch. Once relaunch and system testing has completed, you will have unrestricted access to your Full Tilt Poker account, including all cashier functionality and poker games."
So far it seems that only a limited number of Full Tilt Poker customers have been notified, but there will probably be more to come.
The agreement between PokerStars and the US Department of Justice called for Full Tilt’s non-US players to have access to their accounts within 90 days. The latest developments suggests that the target date of 6 November for the reopening of the site looks like being hit.
