    Thanks Shyspirit. This is an odd tidbit you've found for us.

    Oh goody! Where/when can we see the report??


    Sooo... money transfering = laundering? Wow... I learn something new every day. I guess they don't want to hear from consumers who are quite happy gaming online and haven't been cheated by the reputable licensed and regulated casinos?

    Is it just me, or does that press release read really weird?

    Anyone have any info on 'america's watchdog'. Who are they? Gone googling...

    P.S. -- I'm going around in circles and have found out absolutely nothing about America's Watchdog and Tom Martin their President (I think).

    Never heard of 'em or their three month study, and I have to agree with Mousey when she says "...or does that press release read really weird?"

    I would look at this with a sceptical eye.

    Exactly. I visited their website and it's quite spartan - not much going on. The design is a bit amatuirsh - even their stats are publicly available. They receive about 20 visits a day on average. I don't think they hold a lot of whistleblowing weight.

    And I agree - the PR reads weird. It was obviously written by someone who is not up to speed on the make-up of this industry.

    Does "off-shore" = foreign/non-US?

    I'd like to rip this term right out of the throat of people who constantly use it. The term is way outdated, and in most cases doesn't apply.
