Full Tilt Reimbursement!

[RR] “I got my Full Tilt money back!” Roderick the Rock exclaimed.

[LL] “Congratulations!” Leroy the Lion responded. “You see the money in your bank account now?”

[RR] “Yep. I got this email last Tuesday:”

[RR] “Then I checked my bank account on Friday and there it was!”

[LL] “I guess I’m officially worried then. I didn’t get an email one way or the other, and of course that means nothing got sent to my bank account.”

[RR] “Have you called them?”

[LL] “I emailed and am waiting to hear back. I’m not an affiliate or a Full Tilt Poker Pro, and I got a confirmation for my petition in September, so I don’t know what happened.”

{A day later…}

[LL] “I didn’t get any response to my email (big surprise), but (bigger surprise) when I called their toll-free number, I was only on hold for a minute when a real, live honest-to-goodness American-accented human being picked up.”

[RR] “Wow.”

[LL] “After confirming my petition number, name, and address, he gave me some bad news. My account balance was zero.”

[RR] “Uh oh. Someone managed to steal your balance?”

[LL] “After the recent Bitcoin fiasco, the thought crossed my mind. But the agent on the phone was completely calm when he said he’d search their database for my name.”

[RR] “And certainly there weren’t any other Leroy the Lions playing on Full Tilt!”

[LL] “Nope, just me. And somehow I’d managed to create two petitions, one with bank info but no balance; the other with the balance but no bank info. I finished filling out the petition that had a balance, and I hope to get paid in the second wave.”

[RR] “When will that be?”

[LL] “The agent didn’t know. But there’s plenty of money left in the fund, so I’m not worried. Just have wait a little longer.”

[RR] “After almost three years, what’s another few months?”
