Pokerbandits.ca admits to hoax

13 February 2007

The operators of pokerbandits.ca, whose operators claimed on Monday that the Web site had been shut down by the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI and the Canadian government, announced that those claims were a hoax on Tuesday night.

"We apologize to all for any inconvenience that may have resulted by our recent hoax, however we found it necessary to perpetuate given the current state of online poker in the United States," read the pokerbandits.ca Web site on Tuesday night. "We believe a much needed scrutiny is required of the recently passed Internet Gambling Enforcement Act."

The operators also announced that pokerbandits.ca would be re-launched later this week.
