Saturday February 15,2014 : NEW ONLINE POKER NETWORK OUTS FRAUDSTERS
Equity Poker Network acts quickly on collusion incident.
Launched only three months ago the Equity Poker Network has already been targeted by online fraudsters, but has successfully identified the perpetrators and taken prompt action, confiscating money and arranging for victims to be made whole again.
Equity announced Friday that it had uncovered a collusion ring following an investigation triggered by suspicious transactions. The enquiry identified a group of colluders who were infringing network terms and conditions, and immediately froze their account balances, which were subsequently confiscated to help reimburse members of the poker network who had been victims of the illegal activity.
The fraudsters' accounts were closed.
Equity network management commented:
“EPN will ensure that all players affected by this fraudulent activity are refunded, and the distribution of funds to these affected account holders will be facilitated shortly.”
