How it works

Often, the first player binds a stolen credit card to a gaming account registered without the cardholder’s knowledge. The only method to embezzle the money is losing it to an accomplice, who in turn withdraws the winnings.

Counter measures

Special programs have learnt to calculate such deviant actions from players and, when notice suspicious activity, immediately alert security personnel. Those, in turn, check the suspects’ betting history and take appropriate actions.
