The little known Corporate Whistleblower Center in the United States insists in rather extravagant language that it has " dropped the hammer on Internet gambling" and that "the party is over" this week....without going into any substantiating detail other than a general desire to see the global industry shut down.
The group boasts that since 2006 it has been doing everything possible to call attention to online Internet gambling in order to shut it down.
"These Internet casinos, and or Internet gambling sites are primarily run by the Russian Mafia, and/or organized crime syndicates, & they are a cancer, the US can do without," it said in a statement, again without offering a shred of evidence to back it's rather scary claims.
Now the group is calling on the US Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service to get involved "....before something really bad happens." That something really bad, according to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, includes: " identity theft of millions of Americans personal information."
The statement goes on to accuse US authorities of being "asleep at the switch', a rather harsh judgement bearing in mind the energetic efforts since 2006 of federal authorities. But in an almost surrealistic claim to fame, the Center goes on to say: "We got so far as to identify, and shut down the largest European Internet money transfer service, we got the second biggest German bank, & the biggest US bank wiring money, or sending checks, to US citizens, all in open violation of the law. And the Feds did noting (sic)".
This wildly uninformed body then turn to the land gambling industry, suggesting that Vegas giants and tribal casinos alike should take note that online gambling is aggravating the economic recession and hurting their businesses.
"It's billions of US dollars. Millions of very foolish US citizens completely give up their identification information, in the process of retrieving winnings. Worst of all, most of the biggest players are the Russian Mafia, or organized crime syndicates," the statement reiterates.
"Just as bad, none of the winnings, or losses are taxed by any state, or by the IRS. The what we will call casinos in the loosest form, rake in billions every month from US citizens & they pay no tax. Even worse, these are criminal enterprises designed to cheat people."
Taking federal enforcement back to 'Investigation 101', the Center suggests that FBI and IRS agents furnish themselves with a fresh set of ID and then mount a sting operation against online casinos, betting small, not taking bonuses and then tracing the money when winnings are sent.
"We want you to watch every aspect of the transaction," the Center emphasises. "On the outgoing side of the bet, or wager, there will be a US bank involved as the transfer agent, in most cases. On the incoming side there will be a US bank that writes the winnings check to you, or a US bank will in most cases wire the proceeds into your account-again as a transfer agent."
