Legal info

Lock Poker is not only obliged to cash out any or all of the account balances at any time by its own Terms of Service, but they are also obliged to do this by laws. Operators are not allowed to use player deposits for business or private expenses. They can only take the fees for providing its service and losses out of the player funds.

Lock Poker closed owing over US $15 million confirms that management embezzled player funds!

Liezl Tengco had the support centre in Vancouver. She gave false and misleading time frames about withdrawals to collect new deposits and motivate existing players continue to play and waste their valuable time. In reality, withdrawals were very delayed or non existent for most customers (except pros). This is clearly the criminal offense of Fraud by false representation!

Please note that organized crime usually is time-barred after 10 years. Embezzlement, fraud, promote or participate in a fraud not before 5 years. Action is still in process and we are confident that we can hold the liable parties accountable.

  1. I’ve got $6,000 on that site still, and have been awaiting payment since April 2014. It is absolutely ridiculous. Those scums. Especially their support team always telling me they’ll be paying soon, that my payment is in the 2nd of 3rd stage of processing. BLAH BLAH BLAH. They told me it takes 6-8 weeks to cashout a check. Well, what a terrible lie. I hope they make the owners pay their players one day.

    1. Based on the info and documents we have, we are confident that the responsible parties will be held accountable.

      6-8 weeks was the standard saying by Liezl Tengco with her support centre in Vancouver, while she knew that the deposits were already embezzled!

  2. Step 1

    Prove the participation in the Lock Poker scam scheme.

    Step 2

    Request enforcement orders against participants of the Lock Poker scam scheme and try to collect. The one or other participant, when he realizes that he has lost, might has interest in an extrajudicial agreement. Depending on the jurisdiction, enforcement orders are valid up to 30 years!

    The debt collection can be also included in the criminal court proceedings. In this case, the offender was sentenced to pay back £1 million to the victims or otherwise get another 6 years in prison.

  3. Just found this link
    I’m owed roughly 35k.
    Have screenshots and tons of emails.
    I will gladly do 50/50 split if you collect the $.
    Please contact me.

  4. i´m owed half a million dollars. i have a few support emails were withdrawals are discussed, but nothing that shows or proves my whole balance i had on there

  5. Thank you for working this! They reached into players accounts and spent their balance. Is this not a serious problem by principle? Do we live in a world where that is OK.

    Craig Taylor, from the Lock Poker executive team, went to work for Virtuasoft which is releasing a new gambling site in less than 30 days.

    1. Yes it is a serious problem, when $10s of million are easily embezzled. At least for those who would like to have it. Based on my experience, the majority simply eat the loss and that’s it for them. Those who want their money back would need to unite and battle together, because such proceedings are very time consuming and expensive.

      Embezzlement and fraud are definitely criminal offenses in the licensing jurisdictions and victims can of course try to enforce their claim. The problem is the strong propaganda on forums against claiming your money, rather than the lack of laws and possibilities.

      The religion is: “We can’t do anything” and I would not be surprised if over 90% of the victims have no proof of their claim anymore. So if you can not claim your money because you have no proof, don’t forget to say thank you to IHasTehNutz, with his worthless Lock Poker pending withdrawals report.

      1. I have plenty of proof, I have the original emails and all the email conversations I had with them. But my claim is only for hundreds of dollars, I would hope someone who was owed more would have their email history and they must have certainly had much more correspondence over their due.

        My concern is not regarding my money, but the principle. There will be no progress without trust. If people can’t trust online brokers they will start hoarding, and money is no more useful than paper when it’s not changing hands.

        Obviously this only seems to be an issue with sites labeled as “Gambling” rather than “Investment”. This is what really gets me. Somehow by using another word for the same thing, they pass under the radar?

  6. Worthless, eh. I imagine the dozens of emails between myself and Lock, and the hundreds of PM messages between myself and those on the report, paint a pretty clear picture of what happened. Almost 400 people were on that report – that is no ‘worthless’ amount of people. One is too many. But I don’t expect you to understand.

    By the way, I don’t work for anyone in the affiliate business. I used to work for an affiliate in terms of creating graphics, content, and SEO for his website. But I never ‘shilled’ for anyone and never told anyone to deposit anywhere. Might want to actually check out some facts before you post idle nonsense. 😉

    1. Legal expert IHasTehNutz makes accusations about Game Protect

      Your cashout report is good for the 2+2 poker show, but worthless for enforcement action!

      Despite of this, 30-40 victims on your report is enough to show that Lock Poker is a criminal operation. Hence, no idea how number 30-400 would be anyhow more worthy, especially as you did not collect proof or at least advised victims to do so.

      You worked for an affiliate and it does not matter if you only created graphics, content and SEO for his website to recruit customers or if you directly shilled or told anyone to register thru that affiliate.

      “I only produced the drugs and gave it to the seller, but I never told anyone to buy or sold directly to customers.”
      Pretty sure you got it 😉

      While accusing Game Protect to be a scam because we offer to Qualify free itself is absurd. But it is more absurd to make such a statement while you yourself worked for an affiliate!

      IHasTehNutz: “Might want to actually check out some facts before you post idle nonsense. ”

      This would be a good advise for you! 😉 But as your sole intent is to attack and bad mouth Game Protect, this will never happen. Despite of this, no idea how someone without legal knowledge think to be able to analyse the legitimacy of online gaming consumer protection service?

  7. Janne Kryger Nielsen

    I requested a withdrawal of $ 10,000 from Lock Poker which I never received.

    Please let me know if the legal action is still in process and I will send your proof (screen shoot and email correspondence).

    1. Yes, legal action is still in process and please use Report Issue to submit your claim. I will give you an email address to forward the email correspondence separately.

  8. Fernando Martinez

      a) Your full name

      b) Lock Poker user name

      c) Total amount owed

      d) Proof of the money owed and pending withdrawal request in form of screenshots or email conversation(s) with support (aka Liezl Tengco)

      e) I, (…your full name…) give game-protect.com the order to collect my Lock Poker account balance and agree that game-protect.com will take 50% of any amount I will receive.

  9. Any update on this case and estimated timeframe to see the money?
