Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Federal authorities seized Internet domain names used by the poker companies. The indictment charges eleven defendants (warning PDF file ~ 272K ), including the founders of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker, with bank fraud, money laundering, and illegal gambling offenses, according to Federal authorities in New York. The United States also filed a civil money laundering and in rem forfeiture complaint against the Poker Companies, their assets, and the assets of several payment processors for the Poker Companies. In addition, restraining orders were issued against more than 75 bank accounts utilized by the Poker Companies and their payment processors, and five Internet domains (PokerStars.com, FullTiltPoker.com, UB.com,...) were seized."
