Thursday October 2,2014 : EQUITY POKER NETWORK SHUTS DOWN CHIP DUMPING QUARTET
Isolated incidence of collusion dealt with swiftly
Equity Poker Network's (EPN) fraud and security team have zipped up an isolated incidence of collusion between four network player account holders.
EPN said the team had identified suspicious conduct between the four players in collaboration with EPN operator 5Dimes.
The 5Dimes player was monitored along with three other new Full Flush Poker player accounts registered earlier this month.
Investigations determined the 5Dimes player dumping chips consistently into the three Full Flush Poker accounts, who in turn attempted to withdraw "thousands of dollars" from those accounts.
EPN disabled all four accounts and confiscated the funds from the three flagged Full Flush Poker accounts, returning those funds to the 5Dimes Group.
“The welfare of our players remains our number one priority, and we will not tolerate cheating or any other form of fraud occurring on EPN. We take all necessary precautions to safeguard our Network, and to protect our players and the integrity of their bankrolls. Our Fraud Team has worked diligently to identify this irregularity, and to deal with the perpetrators quickly and permanently,” said an EPN Spokesperson.
