The bitcoins must have been recieved BEFORE the hardfork.

and why?

If I understood it correctly, an unconfirmed transaction during the hardfork means "that the BTC's are still on the sender's adress". Why? Because the people behind BCH/BTG copy the whole blockchain at one moment and if your transaction is unconfirmed => it's not in the blockchain => they can't copy it. And that means that the sender of the BTC will have access to the BCH/BTG and the receiver gets nothing of that.
