Exclusive: Fake online stores reveal gamblers’ shadow banking system
Exclusive: Fake online stores reveal gamblers’ shadow banking system

2017-06-22

A network of dummy online stores offering household goods has been used as a front for internet gambling payments, a Reuters examination has found. The seven sites, operated out of Europe, purport to sell items including fabric, DVD cases, maps, gift wrap, mechanical tape, pin badges and flags. In fact, they are fake outlets, part of a multinational system to disguise payments for the $40 billion global online gambling industry, which is illegal in many countries and some U.S. states. The findings raise questions about how e-commerce is policed worldwide. They also underline a strategy which fraud specialists say regulators, card issuers and banks have yet to tackle head-on.  That strategy is “transaction laundering” – when one online merchant processes payment card transactions on behalf of another, which can help disguise the true nature of payments. Credit card companies including Visa and Mastercard require all online purchases to be coded...

ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) — Rain couldn’t slow down Georgia voters who will settle the most expensive House race in U.S. history and potentially set a new course for the 2018 midterm elections. Republican Karen Handel, a veteran Georgia politician, is fighting to claim the 6th Congressional District seat that’s been in her party’s hands since 1979. Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old first-time candidate, is hoping for an upset that would rattle Washington ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Polls closed at 7 p.m. “Our political system needs good, younger people to start replacing the old guard,” 56-year-old old Sheila Champion said Tuesday, explaining her support for Ossoff outside her polling place in suburban Sandy Springs.
