Gambling 911 has been posting articles that are pointing towards pending doom for some offshore operators. These warnings may be true. The rumors on the street are that an agent that is incarcerated at a federal institution is not a happy camper and the feds have been using him to get to the books that do illegal transfers and agency deals in the US. The book that G911 is referring to is Hollywood. Many times these rumours are just that, rumours with no substance.
NB, for the "not so smart" operators that use agents in the US. Stop doing it. It will cause you severe grief and remarkable amounts of money defending yourself.
NB, for the "not so smart" watchdogs that run affiliate programs based out of the US. Seek professional help immediately.
NB, for players that use the above. If the DOJ seizes the records of these operations, more importantly the records of US based watchdog site, your names and address` will become part of their investigation.
MW asked some time ago for the irresponsible agents and watchdogs that operate out of the US to get their acts together. Since then , MW can confirm that they have not.
