Haha always keep your money for yourself and be very careful when someone in the casino offer you some way to invest, best investment you can make in a casino is to leave with the money you already have, play some for fun but no big bets, no investments

They wanted to invest 50k, transferred the money with ease, while signing no contract.
That was a mistake.
And even if they caught the guy there si no money to be found according to him.
In other words money gone, and they are not getting it back.

Poor women. They have 50k each, yet they r too friggin stupid to realize when they are being scammed. Why on earth would private casino rooms be good investments to anybody outside of the actual casino???

Haha well that was not nice for the ladies they lost money in a casino and not by playing but by investing and getting conned, so sad for them they should have at least use their brain and know that this looks like a scam.

Who would in the right mind accept to invest with one person met in the casino, anyway as the saying goes when something is too good to be true then it is usually true. Anyway hope they get some money back anyway have a nice weekend guys!

yeah me too ponders how on earth ladies who have an extra $50K to spend in some shady investment have more green paper than brains... either they have wealthy businessmen/mafiosi's for husbands or they are elite hookers who thought that they will have the chance to dupe rich customers inside this vip room that will belong to them...

So! Give me $50k and I will turn it into $100k with no effort from you other than doing a bank transfer. Fancy it? Of course you do, but wouldn't you first do some research and due diligence to ensure that the Deal had at least some credibility before you parted with your well gained cash? Of course you would...... wouldn't you?????

If the offer is very good, then you need to ask yourself: for what services do they offer such a profitable deal? ... If this was possible, then probably no one would have told anyone this and earned himself .... a simple question, a simple answer

Maybe this was like a pitch of timesharing but instead of a hotel suite they would have get timesharing on a VIP room or something along like that. Sounds sketchy from the get-go tbh.

I bet this 52-year-old male suspect has scammed not only these unsuspecting two female tourists but many visitors from all over the world. This is an utterly despicable crime and should not be tolerated.

Its never nice to read about these kind of stories and i hope that they can catch this guy and, at least, they get some of their money back. You must always be careful when things look too good to be true

well i am happy to inform you doubletop777 that thy have indeed caught the guy, of which you could've been informed if you decided to read the whole article before unleashing your comment... but not so much luck with actually getting back the money, since the dude was quick enough to place it all on the red... Dollar

Yeah, old mistake. First thing to buy when you entering a casino - with somebody else's money - is an expensive hooker, so no matter what happens after at least she will take some edge of beforehand. Less stress, more time well spent.
