    CostaRican Times: "Money laundering at 5Dimes"

    Here we go.

    http://www.costaricantimes.com/the-m...ok-grows/45272

    TEXT

    The money entering Costa Rica through Latco Company from Malta and Dubai was linked to the operation of the 5Dimes sportsbook.
    The millions were said to be intended to develop real estate projects, like gas stations, offices and apartments. The BCR accounts were closed in November due to doubts regarding the money’s origin.
    Some of the money had been transferred to Red Planet S.A., Tobraso Total Brand Solutions, and the board of directors, managers and family members.
    While Jennifer Morsink was in charge of Latco, the Bank of Costa Rica denounced the company for money laundering.
    Relatives and possible owners of 5Dimes were found in Pennsylvania by the Department of Homeland Security. They were involved in another facet of the scams, gambling with Amazon cards.
    Millions have been laundered from Malta, New York, Panama, and surely countless other places yet to be found out about.
    A messenger deposited $9,000 in checks from various banks in Panama every week.
    This looks like the beginning of the end for this sportsbook in Costa Rica.

    I would hope not.

    I mean, if their job is to protect us the players, I would hope they do their job here.

    It would be news if there was an off-shore book that wasn't cleaning money.

    Normally discussions involving processing or activity that might be restricted in certain jurisdictions is not permitted, because of the legal implications and the fact that it harms players looking to sports bet regardless of the jurisdiction that they are in. That said, users are rightly curious about the implication of some of the sensational headlines, all starting with a Costa Rican newspaper.

    We can tell you that 5Dimes is still operating as normal in Costa Rica and to date we haven't received a payment complaint. If we were to, we will update the forum as we do with any other book that begins slow-paying.

    LiverSpot you should apologize to SBR. They clearly addressed the issue with an article in their front page. How come your google search didn't pick it up?

    I rarely side with SBR but this time they did the right thing for players. No need to continue your attacks!
