My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA
Hey law experts. Hopefully someone will be able to answer this....I've read hundreds of varying opinions
Online gambling sites used third party vendors and essentially launder money into their casinos. For example, someone purchases 200.00 USD at slotsareus casino, the debit on your statement shows up as "gift4mark online" or "www.winauction.com" or "firestone adv" whatever it may be, it never actually shows up as "slotsareus casino." I have heard many people "chargeback" their debit / credit cards in these instances and are successful. However, if the bank does prove the individual did make these charges, is he / she even liable? The person in context never received any items from the vendors listed on their statement. They did nothing wrong disputing a charge that they never received....
So, short version, when disputing an online gambling charge, and the casino used a third party vendor, how could you be in the wrong? How could you get in trouble? Is the bank at all responsible for letting these charges go through?
