Question by David C123: Can an internet gaming site collect on gambling debt?
If you use bodog.com and deposit using an electronic check, and then the check bounces due to insufficient funds in your bank account, can bodog do anything. They claim they will report you to a third party collection agency and report you to the experian etc. However, isn’t online gambling in the US illegal? Would the collection agency have any right to collect on an illegal debt? Not to mention they never ask for you Social Security #. If the bank knew the checks were going to an illegal gambling site wouldnt they cancel the checks anyways?
Answer by the Boss
I don’t know if online gambling is illegal, but you should be straight up and not be trying to rip people off. Nobody wants to do business with people like you and you should be a man and pay your obligations.
