“In an apparent crackdown on Internet gambling, federal authorities in New York have frozen or seized bank accounts worth $34 million belonging to 27,000 online poker players, according to representatives for the players and account holders.”
It’s nice to know that at any time, the Federal Government can seize entire private accounts when ever they feel like it. I was beginning to feel unsafe knowing that crazy online poker players were making money. They were probably having fun at the same time. We need to put a damper on that!
