Feds Move to Seize Lederer, Bitar, Ferguson, Furst Assets

The Feds have moved to seize Chris Ferguson's cash money.

It’s gone from bad to worse for the Full Tilt Poker board members named in the SDNY amended civil complaint earlier this week.

Subject:Poker has confirmed that the FBI and law enforcement personnel have been authorized to seize assets belonging to Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, Ray Bitar, and Rafe Furst.

Specifically:

  • All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered GB81 RBOS 6095 4234087766 held at NatWest, in the name of Raymond Bitar, and all funds traceable thereto;
  • All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered 7655741861 held at Wells Fargo Bank N.A. in the name of HH Lederer Consulting LLC, and all funds traceable thereto; and
    All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered GB56LOYD30166314010402 held at Lloyds TSB International, Isle of Mann, in the name of Howard Lederer, and all funds traceable thereto;
  • All funds and other property on deposit in account numbered 40039049628 held at Citibank N.A., in the name of Chris Ferguson, and all funds traceable thereto; and
  • Account numbered CH87 0875 5057068400100 held at Pictet & Co Bankers, Switzerland, in the name of Telamonian Ajax Trust, and all funds traceable thereto.

The inclusion of Rafe Furst’s Telamonian Ajax Trust should put to rest the industry rumors that he’s “the one” who flipped and provided the Fed with some of the detailed information regarding Tilt and its shareholders listed in the civil amendment.
