Safety Tip of the Week: Gambling

One of the greatest potential dangers for fraudulent loss posed for people using the internet is gambling. There are as many as 200 gambling sites on the Internet. Consumers may gamble on sports, Blackjack, Keno and Roulette, among others Gambling on the Internet is especially risky because gambling is an unregulated industry and currently, there is no effective way to control it. Companies based in foreign countries using foreign bank accounts are able to easily bilk consumers out of their money. Many times Internet “gamblers” are unable to contact the companies with whom they placed their bets to collect their winnings. Gambling on the Internet exposes consumers to fraud, civil liability and possible criminal liability

If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666 or if calling from a campus phone dial 8-6666.
