Tuesday May 6,2014 : NEW JERSEY FRAUDSTER UNDERESTIMATED ONLINE GAMBLING K.Y.C. REQUIREMENTS
Woman charged for false claim regarding identity theft.
A New Jersey woman who perhaps did not realise how much information online operators are required to record before accepting a deposit, or how effective location technology can be, has been charged with theft by deception after claiming that her identity had been stolen and $9,565 in gambling and banking fees had been fraudulently generated in her name.
Diana Zolla (31) was charged following a three month long investigation after she alleged that persons unknown had used her maiden name to create an online gambling account prior to racking up $9,565 in bets and banking fees.
State police investigators checked banking, online gaming, location and internet service provider records to determine that Zolla herself was responsible for creating the account.
