What do you consider to be the most surprising news from these interviews?
I believe we are going to see payouts and then IRS audits. I believe the DOJ and and indicted companies worked out a deal to allow payouts but I am guessing the IRS is going to be more than interested in who receives what. Be prepared.
Thats refreshing, thanks. Also, would you be interested in buying my account for .50c on the dollar? Seems like a bargain, if you think the odds are much better than 50/50. :)
I would certainly think the odds are much better than 50% that you'll see your money.
RJ, obviously there are numerous rumors and not many facts about the big three paying out the current balances of US players accounts. I know that FTP and PS have made statements saying they will pay out, but Im not convinces. I think PS will, but Im not sure FTP/AB will be able to do so. As Ive stated/whined about before, I have a substantial amount of money on FTP.
In your honest opinion, do you think Ill ever see this money, or should I just consider it gone?
Thanks, and great article.
Np, Lloyd, typo has been corrected.
Not trying to be a dick, I was really wondering. Thought maybe it was something to do with where the server was located
Did you mean severe consequences?
I was on Tampa radio talking about "Black Friday" today.
Great information Mr. Bell.
I also thought the online pros would do well live, but clearly our experts felt otherwise - very surprising.
