This MSNBC story has it all - cheating, intrique, mystery, corporate shell games, and, of course, a whodunit mystery.

Why anyone plays on-line anywhere in the world is beyond me.

Hi Talesman,  ;)

Just out of interest do you mean, online poker, RNG roulette, or a "live" wheel roulette regarding the above statement ???

Many thanks..... 8)

On-line is on-line.

The game played is of no consequence.

RNG or "live" makes no difference.

All, w/o exception, have cheated clients/customers or have caused them grevious problems.  That is an undeniable and undisputable fact.

Anyone who has truly read and fully comprehended the TOS of just about any on-line should know that s/he has just about surrended 100% of any rights they might have when dealing with a merchant.   I have seen bad adhesion contracts in my day but many of the on-line casinos have some of the worst ever written.

How about over a dozen years of newspaper, TV, radio, magazine stories plus the multi-dozens of sites and blogs that constantly recite the latest abuses and or problems.

I am sure if you looked at the Congressional Record of the several committees in both the House and Senate you will find a few hundred thousand words on that as well. 

In that record you will find detailed items as to how many organized crime figures, be they American. Greek, Russian, Croatian, Italian, (Baltic and Slavic)etc. are suspected of being involved.

Wherever there is easy money organized and some not so organized crime figures/families will appear. That's a given.

The proof, written and otherwise, is all around you. All you have to do is pay attention to it.
