--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So just who is Debbie Richardson? No matter what online gambling forum or Affiliate Site, you see her name and her mission. Just about the whole industry spread her message all across the internet.

As a Bingo Forum administrater, I came across Debbies plea and emailed her my support on Oct 6,2006. I used our site, like many others, to get her message out. During this period I also received an email from BingoFun, into my player email account. The email conveyed Debbies message, yet again! I mentioned to staff that Bingofun also supported the protest and left it at that.

A review of the guest list on her site Link Removed ( Old/Invalid) shows 2 Bingo sites signed the guest book, Bingoland and BingoFun and many other signers were also from Online Bingo. Nothing really clicked with me until I recently received an email from Debbie, where among other things, she asked me to delete a post about Bingofun that another Staff member posted.

After talking this over with staff we decided to find out just who Debbie Richardson is and who is supporting her movement. I must admit our findings did amaze me.

It seems Debbie works for InterContinental Casinos, which owns USA Casino, New York Casino and Bingo brands, BingoFun, Zany Bingo, Zodiac Bingo and Ruby Bingo! Read this link for details

Our investigation found that Debbie Richardson is a CH for BingoFun! Sissy will show our evidence of this in her post. So the unknown supporter backing her movement is InterContinental Casinos! I have a real problem with that!

Although we know very little about BingoFun, we surely know all there is to know about Zany Bingo. They presently have the distinction of being the top Rogue Bingo Site on the net. We have asked the owners of Zany Bingo to curb Zanys fraudulent activities several times, to no avail. This site continues to cheat players on a daily basis. Now since Zany is owned by InterContinental Casinos, and they also own BingoFun, we can only speculate that the fruit does not fall far from the tree.

I feel scammed by Debbies actions! The fact! As I see it is Debbie has her own agenda and trying to get the Poker Players industry PPA to back her. Debbie is not interested in the American Rights Issue! Her only interest is to keep US Players playing at sites like Zany Bingo, so they can continue their lucrative fleecing of the American Public. Remember! There is no regulations in the Bingo Industry! The majority of the Bingo Industry got Fat cheating the public with its use of House Players and other unfair rules that gives the house an unfair advantage and they will fight like hell to keep this going.

The Poker Industry has a better chance of achieving their goal if they disassociate with Debbie and her questionable backing! Once the media learns that a crooked bingo site is tied to Debbie Richardson, its all over!


As a moderator and a member of BPU.. I think this will open some eyes to just who does what AND WHY !!!!!!!!!!

And more on the story

Posted: Fri Nov 24, 2006 8:29 pm Post subject:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have had more than one occasion to see and hear what Debbie Richardson has to say about not only, our US Governemnt taking our rights away, but also her input on how "honest" Bingofun.com is.

I find it makes me very angry when "the pot calls the kettle black". In other words, all the time Ms. Richardson has been making headlines in the forums and going to Washington DC to publicly fight what is supposed to be "our rights", she has been holding down her job, of what I believe to be 5+ years as HEAD CM AT BINGOFUN.COM.
In my opinion, her job is what she is trying to save, NOT the rights of the American people!! She may have established a little more credibility with me, had she announced the fact that she is and has been VERY INVOLVED in online bingo for a good while.


Following are a few articles I read about Debbie and her "protest" at several different forums including CMOTY:

Debbie Richardson has sent this for us to post -
Protest for Freedom Scheduled for Nov. 3-4 in Washington D.C.
Richardson said:
This protest is not only about internet gambling, online poker, or government wire tapping. This is about the United States government taking away personal freedoms that were gauranteed to us in the Constitution.


Personal freedoms??? How ironic you would say that when your employer, Bingofun.com takes those very "freedoms" and chunks them in the trash because they can!! They take away your right to speech by implementing ridiculous rules for chat!! Yet here you are in Washington, raisin Cain about what the GOVERNMENT is doing to us!! Makes me shake my head :(.

You, Debbie Richardson, go into the public and , never once (that I have seen), OPENLY admitting that you are a CM employed at Bingofun.com!!!!
Why was it necessary to "decline to comment about your company " if you were not hiding something? Is there a huge question of crediblility here?

When asked what her official job was, Richardson cryptically stated that she had an “interest” in online gambling that she was not at liberty to further discuss. She said that referring to her as a lobbyist is the most appropriate designation at the moment.

“Whether we have 50 or 500, it only takes one voice to be heard,” Richardson told Card Player in a phone interview on her way to the rally. “If we lay down, they’ll lay down, and this will continue.”

FINALLY Watchdogs!!!! I see someone from the other side "walking a mile" in OUR shoes!! It would have been so nice to have many more followers for this protest that had been treated fairly or even DECENTLY by some online bingo sites!! MOST sites NOR affiliates stood behind their players, when the players had an issue and now maybe it is time for "payback". So sad...

Richardson said:
Quote:
This protest is about Americans who demand that we get our personal freedoms back.


How does it feel to protest about freedoms and fairness and get a "deaf ear"?? I know MANY online bingo players who have received just that kind of treatment from your employers and those like them that you represent here!
Richardson said:
Quote:
First they tapped our phone lines in the name of anti-terrorism, and now they have taken away our ability to use our own finances in whatever way we please. They are taking away are freedoms one by one and this has to stop!


Again, ironic.... paying player freedoms never existed because YOUR boss and those like them never gave them a choice! Bingo sites made their own rules... players accepted them or didn't play!!! The old "my way or no way" syndrome I would think.

Richardson said:
Quote:
In this protest there will be questions raised that Americans want answered, such as, where do our legislators draw the line between a free society and complete government control over our individual lives?


And you expect your questions to be answered?? We will see if you get more response from the government than we Watchdogs have gotten from MOST of the Bingo sites and/or affiliates when we had PAYING players with problems.

Richardson said:
Quote:
There is corruption in the United States government and Americans want it stopped, now!


There is MORE corruption in online Bingo and the Watchdogs... American and otherwise, want it stopped too!! It is beyond my realm of imagination, that you can prance all over the USA and put down our government, while you continue to draw a paycheck that comes from the MOST corrupt (in my opinion) of online gambling choices... online bingo!

Richardson said:
Quote:
We are requesting that the mass media of the United States pay some attention to the freedoms that this government has taken away from us.


And I, speaking as a Watchdog, hope this very same media will also pay attention to the information we send them on this very same issue!

Here is another interesting post:

If you notice from most of the people signing the guestbook at the site for this protest and where the original notices from Ms. Richardson showed up, this group of people is primarily made up of online bingo players. We as online poker players don't want to be an afterthought in their rally. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, our message of poker being a game of skill and not being subject to UIGEA is not consistent with pure games of chance like bingo. I want to attend a rally in DC regarding online poker. This is not it. We need a credible poker organization or individual(s) to lead a poker-specific rally.


Only one persons view, but I thought it worth repeating!

Here are a few more opinions of how Debbie Richardson is handling her "self appointed" job...

No, something's wrong here. She doesn't want us to know who she's really affiliated with. In the past, she seems to be more affiliated with online bingo players than anyone else. What's also weird is this article says it was just published, but it is written as if the bill is still on President Bush's desk waiting to be signed. Am I missing something?

Quote:
When she did her original protest on Columbus Day, reports were saying that she was getting in the face of Congressmen (who had been gone home to campaign), and going on about how the bill could still be changed before the President signs it. I know it's better than nothing, but she seems to be someone those involved with online poker shouldn't be dealing with as she's more tied into other less skillful areas of online gambling.

also pointed out on another forum that for someone attempting to organize a protest, she did not seem very media savy. I have not seen a word of this in any mainstream media. The only things I have seen are articles or postings on gambling sites. She should be issuing actual press releases and attempting to get high profile poker players/celebs to attend.

My suggesting of extending it to November 5 to include "Guy Fawkes Day" to garner more press was met with "well, I need to find out how many people will show up if I do that".

Well, the fact is, what you do is you ANNOUNCE the date first, get press, THEN people will show up. You don't wait to hear from the few dozen people who have heard about it and see if any of them can attend on the 5th.

This doesn't seem to be a very professionally organized endeavor and definitely seems sketchy to me as well.

If you check out her posts on Full Contact Forum you will see what I mean.

In a direct statement to Debbie... I KNOW you read this forum.... I am told that you have some concerns about my posting against your employment site, Bingofun.com. As I understand it, you were given my email address. Is there a reason you have not contacted me with your request/demand to completely delete any and all posts about Bingofun??

You wanted in the "public eye" Debbie.... welcome!!

AND SO ON..............

If I were CM Debbie....
I would worry about this new bill because I am a head CM/Manager of a online gambling site for 5+ years, getting paid a good rate tax free to work from home in NC USA.
If the law stands, Debbie could even lose her job because money can no longer be transferred to her because it is illegal to gamble online and/or send funds to and from gambling sites.
Even if she could get away with staying an employee....she might have to take a pay cut due to the loss of half their business income which they received from US players. The site could even do as some others did and just close down. I see why Debbie Richardson is fighting so hard on this issue, its not really all about our freedoms.

Problem here is that standing with Debbie Richardson in her protests and sending her money through her neteller to help financially in her fight isn't helping us who choose online bingo as our recreation.... and it wont benefit avid poker players either.
Debbies fight is to keep online gambling just as it was...all in the name of fighting for our rights.
If her fight is successful, it will only really benefit bingo site owners, employees, affiliates, and casinos. If she is successful....things would not change from the way they were and players will continue to be cheated while sites and employees continue to make the bucks.
What I want to fight for is having regulation so that people can not be cheated without these sites having a consequence. i would much rather see a stop put to online bingo as to allow it to continue as it is. This fight is different than Debbies fight.

Debbie is trying to target large online poker groups to stand with her,
and she wont be helping poker sites either. Poker in their fight is all about showing that poker is a game of skill and not chance, as it should be....poker is very different and takes a lot of skill and should not be grouped with all other gambling.

Debbie's lobbying to get people to protest with her is all about protecting her own interests in this industry.... not poker players or bingo players best interests.

I would certainly hope that the meister allow these posts as they are complete FACTS and obviously need to be allowed for all those that could fall vicitm to her wrong doings. Many honest players have been ripped off and mislead far too long at the expense of someone who claims to be for the people ! She is for her own wallet plain & simple. This should not be allowed to continue by Debbie and all supporters need to be aware of her actions both in Washington and at Bingofun ! We all knew Zany was corrupt, Bingofun is sister and knee deep in corruption as well ! I am only a small part all the members at BPU have worked very hard to represent the players BEST interest & they did great work!

Sort of what I was thinking as well Dominique..since I've been reading all these posts on different forums that all say the same thing. It almost comes across as someone with a grudge...or just a shit disturber. I'm always leery when first time posters show up, and all they add to a site is derogatory comments. Makes you wonder if they have a hidden agenda. I really don't know one way or another, but it does make you wonder.

I expected as much from Dom and BingoT as they too have pockets to line. There is no hidden agenda.. Plain & simple the more that are made aware of what she tried to hide & cover up at the expense of many HONEST PAYING AMERICANS will not go without exposure. If there is one thing to wonder here it is WHY ? Why did she hide and try to fleece people in to backing her campaign when she works for a site that IF they did NOT want to lose the Americans would have gone out of their way to support their head CM ! Don't feed me the line she wanted to protect her job as it was already in jeopardy with the new law. Now, the real investigation begins on who all funded her so called campaign, how much ? And how much did she actually spend on her mission ? How many others went to DC without the help from anyone but their own wallets ? I am NOT HIDING, I am an AMERICAN and an honest person who wants protected from as much corruption as possible online as do many others. Who speaks for us ? We do ! I am all for freedom for Americans but I want REGULATED freedom !!!!!!!!! And~~ I do not want to line another pocket that claims to being a do gooder for the people when all the facts now have clearly stated her own ulterior motive.
