Statement from Assistant Director Janice K. Fedarcyk on PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker Forfeiture

ADIC Fedarcyk released the following statement concerning the $731 million settlement of money laundering and forfeiture complaint with PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker:

“Today’s forfeiture is another important step in the FBI’s investigation, allowing for serious compensation of victims. This should serve as a deterrent to others who look to actively circumvent United States law—onshore or offshore, you will be held responsible for those actions. Pokerstars and Full Tilt bet the house on their illicit scheme; fortunately, we were holding the trump card,” said FBI Assistant Director Janice K. Fedarcyk.
