Duo Jailed For Casino Swindling Scheme

Wayne Scott & Carissa Felix - photo by VIPDOn November 18, Friday, the Virgin Islands Police Department Economic Crime Unit had arrested a man and a woman, who allegedly worked together to swindle money from the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort & Casino on the island of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

The male suspect, Wayne Scott, age 49, was arrested by police in Estate Slob in the mid-island at about 12:49pm. On that same day, at about 5:48pm, they arrested the female suspect, Carissa Felix, age 27, a former dealer working at the Divi Carina Bay Casino.

In August, Economic Crime Unit (ECU) detectives launched an investigation right after receiving a report from the casino that their dealer Felix was setting up the deck of cards in the Mississippi Stud Poker game to favor the player Scott, thus purposely providing him advantageous hands.

The two suspects were charged with four counts of cheating and swindling, and another four counts of obtaining money by false pretense. The female dealer got an additional charge of soliciting or accepting tips as well.

After failing to make bail of $35k each, they were remanded to the Golden Grove Detention Center pending their advise-of-rights hearing.

There must be a lot of this going on in the gambling world and, whenever there is money to be won, it will continue to do so. I am glad that these two were caught because i cannot stand cheating in any form

One pudgy guy who creates spider web around a - forty lookin' - twenty seven years old innocent girl and now both of them are in jail for doing something which could be spotted a miles away with any current casinos security cams. Good job guys, enjoy your rest for the next decade...

hahaha Pochui I have no idea what swindling means either. It's normal english isn't our first language but we're good anyways Blink So, swindling basically means extortion, deception, hoax, rip-off, scam ect...

I have no clue where the virgin islands are in the united states but whatever, these scammers usually don't get far if they know who has committed it.

Swindlin' is basically just doing something - legally not so pure - for the sole purpose of hustle money out of somebody or someplace which otherwise would not give that to you that easily.
That is all my folks.
