New York residents stole over $1.1 million from Atlantic City casinos
The gambling community has heard many stories of con artists emerge who wanted to profit from casinos dishonestly.
Recently, several people have illegally obtained funds from five different Atlantic City casinos, totaling $1 100 000.
According to preliminary data, five New York residents allegedly exchanged fake casino checks for impressive six-figure sums.
А group of con artists exchanged fake checks for chips in late August, and then they exchanged those chips for cash at Atlantic City casinos, according to local media reports.
The scheme was as follows: the scammers showed casino workers two checks. One check was valid, while the second one was fake.
Some casinos accepted only the valid check, while others accepted both. This way, the scammers managed to rob the Borgata casino, Ocean Casino Resort, Golden Nugget, Caesars, and Hard Rock Atlantic City.
One criminal group member is currently in custody, and the rest are still wanted by the police. All five New Yorkers will face charges accordingly.
