Spotting Rogue CasinosThere is a lot of fun to be had at online casinos, and a great deal of money changes hands at those facilities annually. It is a huge and growing Internet industry. The down side is that, because of the huge amount of money moving through those sites, it is an industry that is very tempting to the criminal element. The worst of the criminal activity that takes place is that completely false fronts will be established to get financial information from potential players.

- Bad payment history
