11 Charged In U.S. Online Poker Crackdown

Eleven people have been charged with bank fraud, money laundering, illegal gambling and other crimes in a crackdown on three major online poker companies operating in the United States.

The company’s founders, including Falkostars, Fultilt Falker and Absolute Falker, were among those charged in the indictment, which was unsealed by a U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York on Friday. 안전놀이터

In addition to the charges, a restraining order has been issued against 76 bank accounts and payment processors in 14 countries used by poker companies.

Five Internet domain names used by the companies to play the game were also seized by authorities, who filed a complaint demanding $3 billion in money laundering fines and forfeiture from poker companies.

The poker companies’ websites were stamped with the official seal of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department with the message, “This domain name was seized by the FBI.”

“These defendants have crafted sophisticated criminal fraud schemes, alternating between some U.S. banks and effectively bribing others to ensure a continuing flow of illegal gambling revenue,” U.S. Attorney Preet Barara said.
