World Net Casinos Inc. including such online casinos as CASINOPIRATA won't remit..




Back in September I opened an account for $700.00 of my money with World Net Gaming Inc. now World Net Casinos Inc., which is an online casino and sportsbook based in Costa Rica. They have a strip of casinos including Casino Bahamas Casino Pirata and Cyberbookie. I deposited the $700.00 into Casino Bahamas. Soon after, I attempted to locate my deposit but it was not showing in any of their sites. So I emailed them several times and finally got a response (their customer service has been stonewalling me from the beginning). They said it had somehow gotten stuck in limbo between two of the aforementioned websites and that they would correct the problem. They moved the money over to Cyberbookie. As soon as I saw that my account value in Cyberbookie was at $700.00, I immediately closed my online account and requested that my credit card be credited with the $700.00. A couple of weeks later I checked up on my account. They had not remitted the $700.00. I called them on it of course and they gave me some lame excuse. Anyway, the $700.00 once again showed up in my account on their sportsbook site account where I actually gambled and won $275.00. My account value at the site then accrued to $975.00. A few weeks passed and I went to open Cyberbookie, typed my username and password and once again my account showed $0. They had not remitted the $700.00 nor had they sent me any sort of check. I wrote several angry letters to them. Finally, they got back to me, apologized and corrected the mistake. As soon as the money showed up in the site, I closed the account by requesting my funds. Two or three weeks later, I called my Credit Card Company to know my account balance on my credit card. The $700.00 had never been credited to my credit card nor had the $275.00 showed up in the mail. Now I am really steamed. I emailed them again and they sent me a letter of which I have posted at the bottom of this message. After having sent the below letter to me twice, they are now saying that I have closed my account and they have remitted the money which they haven't.

Anyway, they still have my money. I think they are trying to screw me out of money that is legally mine and are never going to pay me. In the mean time I am paying interest on the $700.00 that really belongs back into my credit card. As I write to you, the site of Casino Bahamas, Cyberbookie and other World Net Casino Inc. sites are raking in receipts from new customers everyday. Receipts a tiny fraction of which ($700.00 plus $250.00)that could be routed to me and possibly other creditors.

Has anyone experienced the same sort of fraud I have?
