Many of you are likely wondering why our most active member has been banned. It came to our attention that Deb was suspected of being a well-known staking scammer who's been booted from tons of other poker communities over the past few years.
Further research into the matter (including collaborations with communities where Deb has been banned before) revealed the user on our site was the same person who had been banned in other places.
Look at how quickly "she" became active on our site and put herself out there.
This is because Deb is actually a guy pretending to be a girl, trying to scam people. He gets active in the community, making himself out to be a helpful and trustworthy person (started offering stakes almost immediately upon joining)
Then down the road, after building up trust, starts to run scams off the site via messenger programs, after building up peoples trusts. We suspect he was hoping to run a bigger scam than normal, due to the number of pro players we'll have on this network with deep pockets.
While we aren't a staking site, and we actually warn against our members being involved in staking or money transfers due to the scam potential, we felt it was necessary to act when the evidence we had was so strong.
Adding icing to the scammer cake, "Deb" was also copying strategy content from other sites and trying to pass it off in blog and forum posts as if "she" wrote it. And we don't allow plaigerism of others work here.
