        I made two deposits with Bovada last week with two different debit cards. One card I never used before except for Bovada and the other one I used at Bovada, Diary Queen and to pay my light bill.
        Yesterday on both cards I got unauthorized charges from all of the World including Madrid, China, Mexico, and Japan. The charges were well over $1000 on both cards. The one I only used at Bovada  I only deposited $50 but over $400 was taken from it.

        I have since filed charges with my card company and local police...

        That happened to me about 10 months ago too.  Not at Bovada but at another RTG casino I had been playing at for a few years.  I emailed the casino about it, but of course they said it was not them.  I did get the money back from my bank, but had to cancel my debit card and get a new one.  Haven't funded money into a casino since.  Too much hassle!  Although I do miss playing online and have looked into bitcoin, it seems so complicated.  I need a step-by-step I guess for bitcoin.

        I use a web wallet that has a card attached. I tend to not leave funds in the account, whatsoever - maybe a few dollars here or there but if there's more than even fifty bucks, I will either use it to play or withdraw it using the card. I have played online over ten years but never had a card-fraud issue from any of the casinos, fortunately.

        Hence why I went to Bitcoin deposits.  I got tired of having to get a new Green Dot Visa every 3 to 4 months because some processor got hacked.

        Of course the processor and the casino would take no blame, and blame it on my computer or another shopping web site.  Of course.

        Yet honestly I've used my normal cards at several online sites and have yet to see the amount of issues I had with my gaming only card.  Oh well another word to the wise, if you plan on gambling online.  Keep your gaming cards separate from your personal household accounts.  Otherwise they might all become drained overnight.

        Hello Chocolateman,

        Could you please PM me your casino username so that I contact the casino rep and see if they have something to do with it?

        Best regards.

        good to know.. I just had to order a new debit card because of the same issue but I haven't played at bovada since they disabled my account. I had used that card at slots.lv which uses the cashier.. maybe there was more to it than I thought

        I think prepaid is definitely the safest way to go these days.. never in my life have I had trouble with fraud until I signed up and deposited on a couple of these sites.. im gonna try it one more time to hopefully determine which one of them the problem lies with.. and of course ill be sure to post whatever I come up with

        I've been playing online for 16 years now and have played at, literally, hundreds of casinos.  I've used prepaid cards most of the time, but bank debit cards/credit cards, also.  I've never had a problem with theft from any of them.  I had a theft from PayPal but it had nothing to do with casinos, and was cleared up immediately by them, of course.

        I know prepaid cards are a pain, and more expensive than bank/credit cards, but when there's nothing on the card to steal, thieves can't get it.  That gives me a lot of peace of mind.

        Hello guys,

        The casino rep has been notified twice regarding this issue and we still haven't heard from him. Hope he'll get back to us soon since Easter holiday is over. We'll keep you posted.

        Thank you for your patience.

        Best regards.

        I must say, I have always used a reloadable prepaid visa for online gaming, Like others have mentioned, there is limited funds to take. I also use \ecopayz, which so far has worked out okay.

        Good Luck to you Chocolateman, I hope this gets resolved.

        Thanks, One was a prepaid debit and the other was from a checking account I use at a small credit union. I dont keep much in that one only to pay my bills. The one time I did use it to online gamble, I got burnt.  Both banks has been very helpful and are issuing me new cards and credit.

        I've done a little search and see this has happened to others who used Bodog/Bovada/Slot.lv also.

        I have since closed my account with them and wish to have nothing else to do with them at all.

        Sorry for making one of these threads, but I am in need of some serious advice.

        I deposited $100 this past Friday using my ATM/Credit Card to Bodog.
        I wagered the $100 on a few events over the weekend that left my account balance @ $189 ($+89). @ this point I requested a check for $189 only to be denied, saying that I needed to submit a Credit Card Verification Form.

        I submitted the form, as well as the required photocopies of my DL & my credit card. I instantly received approval on both my account and my pending payout.

        Life was grand.

        Then, today, I logged on to my bank account to find a random charge from a "WMV*MATCH.COM 800-326-5161 FREE TX". Upon calling the number/browsing the web I have sense found out this site is part of an online scamming program (as if I didn't know).

        Then, I log on to my e-mail account and find an e-mail from a lady @ my bank saying:

        "We have a system that monitors our customer's activity with their Visa CheckCard. If any transaction are unusual they show up on a report for us to verify if they are valid transactions. We have a several transactions we need to verify, which are listed below.

        $1.00 – The Greenskeeper
        $487.93 – 4allmemory.com
        $646.54 – www.harrods.com
        $133.83 – Planet Clothing
        $145.95 – Metboots
        $592.94 – U.S. Tactical
        $73.48 – www.anthillrockware.com
        $332.26 – Fenious Multisp
        $75.00 – CCBilleu.com
        $734.43 – Andatech
        $5.00 – decocracylnaction.org
        $137.31 – www.liverpoolfctv
        $153.51 – harlequins rugby club
        $10.00 – Horizon Park Chapel
        $8.17 – www.woodlandtrust.org"

        Basically, the lady said that the above transactions WOULD post in my account and unfortunately they basically equal my entire account balance. However, the bank said they would lend me a line of provisional credit for the amount until all of the paperwork I signed claiming the fraudulent charges processes. Also, my debit card was shut off.

        If anyone knows anything @ all about anything or anything similar to this, please help.

        Did Bodog somehow share my information with someone who would have used my credit card information against me like this?

        So today I open my email to discover that someone has purchased 12 $100 gift cards from Starbucks. I managed to stop the pending charges, but getting a whole new card number is a hassle. The last time I received a fraudulent alert was when I deposited money to Bovada. I can't prove that my cc info being hacked was a result of turning over my info to Bovada, but I was wondering if anyone else has had anything else similar happen to them?
