Unfortunately, this malarkey is so profitable that those fines are not even pocket change for them.
The official front person (not that it will link you to the real people behind these scams) for your casino is barely 30 years old and a director/secretary of 200+ companies. No doubt, they can add another 200 to that tally.
I get what you are saying, but trust me it does matter to some of them because around 30% do comeback and try to put a counter argument together but how on earth can Visa or NatWest Bank take the side of a Illegal Casino Website it would be utterly unethical giving the cash back to a bunch of criminals. Imagine a victim has just lost £20k that’s a lot of money and it pisses them off to be forced to hand the cash back.
So as victims we must fight, at the end of the day it’s a 10 minute phone call to the bank, a quick email or call to the Gambling Commission they will issue a letter and then getting a Crime Reference Number from Action Fraud website.
A pretty much 100% guaranteed refund
The criminals can do nothing about it, but the best part is when they have to pay the £75 - £1500 fine.
