    This has been happening a lot and in many countries all over the world. They are really cracking down on this illegal online component. I absolutely applaud their efforts. Nothing hurts online gambling more than these illegal sites, IMO. I understand how they raid these identified locations and seize computers, monies, etc. I am just trying to understand what it is like to be gambling on one of these sites, knowingly or even unknowingly that their illegal and then arrested by the authorities. From what I know, online gambling is legal in Malaysia, so are these players arrested because the site is illegal and although they may be victims themselves? Just makes me wonder how this is determined.
