Poker players sue to get to the bottom of online cheating scheme
By Mike Brunker, msnbc.com
Eight American poker players who say they were victims of a cheating scheme on the popular Ultimate Bet website are suing a Canadian company and unnamed individuals, alleging they violated U.S. laws aimed at combatting organized crime, defrauded players and negligently offered crooked card games.
The lawsuit, filed last Friday in U.S. District Court in California, alleges that the defendants 6356095 Canada Inc., formerly known as Excapsa Software Inc., and up to 10 Jane or John Does violated the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, committed fraud and exhibited negligence by enabling the theft of at least $20 million from high-stakes poker players who gambled on the Ultimate Bet website.
