American affiliates and former employees of Full Tilt Poker might find themselves frozen out of the remission process that’s just getting ready to pay out.

The bombshell news is unconfirmed, and first surfaced in an e-mail from the Garden City Group that was posted on Poker Players Alliance Vice President Rich Muny’s Facebook page. The quoted text reads:

The following persons are excluded from the Remission process and are not eligible for payment from the Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”) Fund:

i. A past or present employee of FTP or any of its past or present affiliates;

ii. A past or present vendor of FTP that received compensation through FTP players’ accounts;

iii. A past or present Team Full Tilt player;

iv. A past or present shareholder of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd.;

v. A past or present officer or director of FTP, Tiltware LLC, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., Pocket Kings Ltd., Pocket Kings Consulting Ltd., Filco Ltd., Vantage Ltd., Ranston Ltd., Mail Media Ltd., or Full Tilt Poker Ltd. or any of their past or present affiliates;

vi. A defendant in any civil action or a claimant in any forfeiture action brought by the Department of Justice related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities); and

vii. A person who, as of the Petition filing deadline, has been the subject of criminal charges related to the violations alleged in this action, or any related action (or any of his or her affiliates, assigns, heirs, distributees, spouses, parents, children, or controlled entities).

Muny, and others, have reached out to the Garden City Group for confirmation but have yet to receive any official word regarding the e-mail’s authenticity.

If true, this would be bad news for a large group of people who, for the most part, had nothing to do with the global ponzi scheme that brought down the online poker business two and a half years ago.

Details of this story are still emerging, so watch CAP forĀ  more information as it emerges.
