Casino Identification Scam
This is yet another scam that casinos use to try and
avoid paying players their winnings. As usual it is
Playtech casinos that are the worst for scamming
people in the ways that I am about to discuss.
I must also point out that I didn't experience these
problems with any of the casinos that I recommend on
the online roulette scam home page and that is why I
recommend them to you.
So picture the following:
You deposit money into an online casino and you win
money, fantastic! So you want to make a withdrawal
and get hold of your winnings.
The casino will then send you an email telling you
that you can't have your money until you send them
copies of your identification. They will want photo
ID and proof of address before giving you your
In other words you will need to photocopy your
driving license or a copy of your passport and
Here's why this is a scam:
They only do this when you try and make your first
withdrawal. There's absolutely no mention of this at
all before you deposit money!
They will let you deposit money all day, they would
take thousands off you if you gave it them but as
soon as you want to withdraw money... BANG, that's it
they want your identification.
They say that this is for security purposes.
I say bull shit.
If security was the issue they would ask for ID
before you deposit, not after. This is because
anyone can use a stolen credit card to deposit money
into a casino if they know the details.
If someone does use a stolen credit card to deposit
money and then try to make a withdrawal the casino
will then ask them for ID. Obviously if you've used
a stolen credit card your not going to send ID to
the casino are you?
Meanwhile the person whose credit card was stolen is
still out of pocket, the casino now has their money.
But if the casino truly where conscious about
security they would ask for ID from every player
before they deposit money, after all if someone's
going to use a stolen credit card to deposit money
they aren't going to send of their ID, are they?
This would solve the problem and the casino would be
taking care of their precious security policies.
The reason they don't say anything about this before
you deposit money is because they know that a lot of
people won't deposit money in the first place if
they know this.
The casinos also know that a lot of people won't
bother to send their ID to the casino for several
1. They can't be bothered sorting out photocopies of
2. They don't own a scanner, therefore getting
copies of the ID is pretty much impossible without
buying a scanner (and who the hell's going to buy a
scanner just for sending ID to an online casino?)
3. They don't feel comfortable sending off copies of
their personal information to a dodgy online casino
(this is the most probable reason for not sending of
I have around $500 sat in various casinos that's
used this scam on me. There's no way that I'm
sending of copies of my passport to an online
casino, so my money is basically dead.
As I've said it is Playtech
casinos that pull this scam, all most all of them
have this stupid policy. However I've never had
these problems at the Playtech casinos that I
recommend and you will find them on the
Playtech casinos page.
Go to the online roulette scam home page for a list
of all the best casinos, none of them scam people
like this and that is just one of the many reasons
why they're the best casinos and why I recommend
them to you.
