The measures which were put in place to protect online gamblers in New Jersey have proven exceptional when it helped prevent alleged fraudulent use of an online gaming account.
New Jersey resident Diana Zolla had filed a report claiming that her identity had been stolen by a rogue player, who had incurred up to $10 000 in online gambling debts. But police used the technology used by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) to reveal that Zolla herself may have been behind the alleged scam.
According to a number of sources, state police spent time gathering information about the defendant’s via her Internet Service Provider (ISP), banking statement, and ongoing observation and was eventually able to build a case against her. New technology used in New Jersey makes it difficult for internet users not to leave a virtual paper trail.
“The Division of Gaming Enforcement and the State Police are committed to working together to deter fraudulent activity and instill confidence in internet gaming operations for all involved, including players, platform providers, and payment processors,” said David Rebuck, Director of the Division of Gaming Enforcement. “Suspicious transactions are thoroughly investigated, and as this case shows, attempts to defraud New Jersey casinos will not be tolerated.”
Zolla tried to cover up her tracks by falsely reporting a loss of $0 565. Her charge, Theft by Deception, is a 3rd degree felony in the state of New Jersey and is punishable with prison time and fines up to $15 000. Zolla will appear before court at a later date.
