It is well-known that online gambling is illegal and yet, many who participate claim that the laws are vague and therefore non-existent. Well, they were not enforced much until just recently, now those so-called non-existent laws, rules and regulations are being enforced as some 28,000 online gamblers had their online gambling bank accounts seized, and it’s not as if any of them really believed that this was going to be allowed forever. Now many are saying that they didn’t know, although, that’s going to be a hard one for the courts to swallow.
Some $34 Million Dollars were seized on this first go around with accounts in SF, LA, and Arizona being culled. Gambling is a huge business and online gambling is a huge business. Some claim that it is the casinos that want to stop the online gambling competition to their fixed locations, yet at the same time want to get permission to set up Internet sites themselves, which may someday be allowed. There have been attempts in Congress to push through such legislation, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Those who have these bank accounts are able to cash out and have a check sent to them when they do, unfortunately, those who went through the Allied Systems Incorporated in Arizona will find their checks are no good, if they have not yet cashed them, as the bank’s accounts were seized. It really was only a matter of time before something like this happened, as the writing had been on the walls for a couple of years now. But all that fun and thinking that no one would get caught all came to an end now. Please consider all this.
