• Everleaf Gaming Network Shuts Out U.S. Players

    27 February 2012

    Newspaper

    Earlier this month Everleaf Gaming Network shut down its US operations. It was reported that the United States Department of Homeland Security had a cease and desist order. Everleaf on Feb 9th, prohibited all US based players from using any of the more than 100 skins it offered.

    Today Everleaf issued this statement:

    As has been reported, certain funds maintained by one of our payment processors to be distributed to U.S. customers were seized by U.S. authorities. To our knowledge, the U.S. authorities seized these funds and blocked the transactions based on purported violations of certain U.S. laws, including operating an illegal money transmitting business, the Wire Act, and money laundering. Evidence relative to the subject can be reviewed from the attached papers.

    Please be advised that this seizure occurred in the United States and only affects U.S. players.

    In view of the above, Everleaf will no longer accept U.S. players. Nonetheless, Everleaf reiterates and wants to reassure all the effected players that all the funds will be refunded in full and the effected parties will be contacted in a short while accordingly.

    For the other markets we operate in and with regards to all our other players we want to reassure you that nothing has changed and thank you for the continued business with our Company.

    We sincerely apologize for the lack of communication to date, but as a Company we were still trying to find our feet and assessing the situation at hand and how to best protect the interest of all the effected parties.

    Unfortunately this leaves a lot of questions.  When will U.S. players receive their money? – “in a short while” according to this statement but what does that mean?

    For U.S. players this is nothing new but “.. as a Company we were still trying to find our feet and assessing the situation at hand” doesn’t sound like it is going to be a fast refund process.
