Taiwan busts online gambling ring

    The Criminal Investigation Bureau has taken down an online gambling ring which used third-party payment methods in its scheme, according to local media. 

    Entertainment website “Golden Cruise Casino” has been under investigation by the CIB for some time. The ring was making money by acting as the third party for online gambling money transfers at local convenience stores by allowing a player to print bills from the online gambling locations for payments, or meeting one on one for receiving winnings. In fact these transactions were money laundering access points disguised as legal areas for legitimate gambling. No details were given on the amount of funds involved.
