Security and Scams

10 replies • Last post

Hello CL Friends,

I found this video on the MSN website. What casino scams have you heard of?

I am sure casinos have their hands full, because as soon as they learn of new scams, scammers are thinking up new ones. It has to be a vicious cycle and more than a full-time job. New technology helps a great deal, I am sure!

High-tech Vegas security outsharks the sharks:

Facial recognition

Tracking chips (a man wearing a motorcycle helmet tries to run away with chips, lol)

What other technologies are helping casinos that they may not have had in the past?

really interesting! I don't like the idea of someone taking my photo by hidden camera every single time I go to a casino.. But I guess we all have to accept these kind of things just cus of the few bad guys out there.. ;S

Very interesting video Hope. Those chips were so pretty! I would love to have some of those, especially the $10,000 ones.

LOL! Yes, me too!

I was watching that show Storage Wars, and Brandy and her husband won a locker. They thought they ended up with all junk, but then they opened a suitcase and it was full of casino chips! The locker was in Vegas. The chips more than paid for their locker. That must have been before the days of tracking the chips. Or maybe they only worry about it when someone tries to cash them in?

I also read a story where a man won a big jackpot, and thieves actually waited in the parking lot and followed him home. They got all the guys money, and I don't know if they were ever caught. We have to be careful when we win those millions!

I heard about that too. Maybe they should give people checks instead of cash to avoid these types of problems?

I watched that one too. I don't think they showed if they won anything did they?

I don't remember if they won, but they did all go to the casino, I think. I think for huge amounts of money the casinos can give checks, can't they? I am not sure.

It's your choice cash or check.. you can even mail the check or send it to yourself back home through courier from the land casino if you want to avoid losses.

Y'all take care.. =^. .^=

I think I would want to be seen being handed a check instead of cash.
