The mafia needs to make sure there's no competition left, before giving legislators the order to pass a new law to regulate their new sites.

( ) We live in a democracy

( ) The DoJ, FBI and judges are guided by people's best interest

( ) Nobody has been paid millions for all this shit to happen

( ) Land of freedom...

The DOJ slowrolled $33 million in cashouts I wonder where that money goes?...China and Cuba are both communist countries but yet they have more freedom than USA..

Link to merge shutdown? Hero posted in these forums that the won't accept NEW US accounts after 5/25, but exsiting US accounts are business as usual. Had not heard anything about the other Merge sites except the ones previously announced (Players Only, etc.).

1 of the websites that got seized today is from the merge network..

More indictments broke out today out of Maryland. 11 bank accounts and 10 domains have been seized. The Maryland Homeland SEcurity group set up an undercover payment processing company. Most of the domains were on the Yatahay Network. Beted is on the Merge Network.

I'd bet these seizures are directly related to the recent UseMyWallet issues people have been experiencing.

Since it was the Maryland DA who came down on these sites I also wouldn't be surprised if this has something to do with the fact Washington DC now has a regulated online gaming apparatus. They were just eliminating the competition imo.
