My question is in all of this, I have seen nothing about any U.S banks being prosecuted for funding online gambling. My bank still allows me to use my account to fund,, as well as Chase bank allows it on credit cards. My bank also accepts wire transfers and charges me a fee with no questions. So how are they deciding who to prosecute? And will they ever try to prosecute us, the end users for gambling with our own money?
Wow, with our financial crisis you think the government would have better things to do,, like prosecuting all the crooks who have raped our financial system and left the taxpayers with the bills, as well as losing their own homes while they pay for the financial institutions.
Since gambling in my state is accessible in every city, via indian casinos, who also pay no taxes on their huge earnings, much like the financial institutions, I do not see what the difference is if I choose to stay home and gamble with an untaxed entity outside the country, I am sure it helps with global poverty, which helps everyone in the world. Global poverty is the number one topic according to Readers Digest. Lol Wake up politicians and quit regulating what we do in our own homes with our own money,
Our bank blocks most funding to online casinos depending on how the payee is listed. If they think its a online gambling site they will refuse to fund them.
With States hurting for funds, if the Gov. doesnt want to regulate online casinos etc. for extra money to help clear our HUGE debt, then States should petition the Gov. to do this. I would think States would love a piece of that pie and it would help keep them more in the black then the red.
But this wont happen for many years. It appears our Government is more interested in what can hit their individual pockets and not what many of its citizens want. Other countries manage to get a piece of the pie for online gambling but it must be something that our politicians cant seem to think through or wrap their arms around it.....unless they get a cut!
