An illegal gambling ring with more than 2, bettors in the United States moved millions of dollars through banks and credit card companies and used an overseas website to place the wagers and keep the accounts, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.
A grand jury in New York City indicted 17 people in the case, and arrests were made by law enforcement officials in New York State, Nevada and California, where most of the bookmakers and accountants for the ring were located.
District Attorney Richard A. Brown of Queens County, N. Brown said in a statement. As in many sports betting rings, some of the profits were spent on memorabilia and other trivia. In the past month, The New York Times has reported extensively on rings of this kind, finding that while the websites are generally registered overseas, many of them maintain a secret digital presence in the United States to serve their customers more quickly. Shortly after The Times informed an American Internet company, in July, that its equipment was routing queries to a Panamanian website from equipment in the United States, the company terminated service to that site and others.
The website appears to have also been among the Panamanian sites whose service was terminated by the American Internet company in July. Since then, the site has jumped from provider to provider in the United States, the data show.
Madory said that Nexusguard, a company with an office in San Francisco, was routing United States traffic for the website at the time of the arrests. The target audience of action appeared to be bettors in the United States.
