ah well at least this dude was trying to do something, and you know what- cheating is not that bad of an activity, it requires one to use it's brains, so in a way this is an intellectual activity and it's way better crime than stabbing some passer by and taking his wallet or using other sort of physical action that injure/kill random dudes.
what a story, this man is obviously someone who enjoys magic powders that he inserts up in his nose or throat. Most of the times these kind of people can't stop getting a funky feeling after the usage of suspicious chemical substances. What also happens a lot in the states is that people had prescription drugs and after that they continue with other dodgy medications. I wish anyone who had this devil on his shoulder good luck, but scamming is not good, at least he didn't cheat in games, well I hope so. Kapow. in to prison.

Although white-collar crimes do not tend to be of a violent nature, they most definitely have their victims. The victims are often financially affected to a great degree, and some victims have their life savings taken away. White-collar crimes should be punished with strict judgment, just as any other crime would be.

They were getting away for too long. But reading the article, didnt see anywhere how much money they got out of it. All it says is an attempt, besides that initial small cash out. No wonder why casinos have so much security going on.
