Mike Matusow, the four-time WSOP bracelet winner with $9,750,072 in live tournament earnings, is the latest figure to join a class-action lawsuit being filed against leading e-wallet PayPal.

The American was vocal in support of Chris Moneymaker when he recently posted threats of legal action against PayPal over $12,000 that was confiscated for breaking terms of service.

Growing List of Plaintiffs

When Chris Moneymaker told PayPal customer support that he would take them to court over the funds, they quickly realised that his public profile had the potential to cause more trouble than it was worth to keep the small sum.

The money was returned to Moneymaker who no doubt took great delight in informing PayPal that with already close to 50 plaintiffs signed up to a class-action lawsuit it was too late to stop the ball rolling.

That was a couple of months ago. Now there are in the region of 100 disgruntled customers lining up to try and claim back any money they think has been unfairly withheld.

Attorney Eric Bensomachan says that interest in the case is growing fast, no doubt helped by his standing in the poker community after successfully defeating Mike Postle in court on behalf of WSOP bracelet winner Todd Witteles.

Mike Matusow hasn’t released any details of how much money PayPal took from his account but he does sound excited at the possibility of recouping at least some of it in the near future.
