Scam Bovegas Casino

8 replies • Last post


The Casino known as BoVegas right after I signed up and was playing online began charging unauthorized amounts to my bank account. When I called them to ask what had happened they claimed that I made these deposits to my account, which was untrue. I had been playing and making deposits but almost half of the charges on my bank account were them just charging me just to steal from me.

They seem to have quite a few shill reviews online using the askagambler website. BoVegas is definitely a scam. I have also read it is not easy to withdraw money either, but my experience was they just charged my account and stole from me and then refused to refund my money.

Who else should I report this to?

They charged my account over 500 dollars in unauthorized transactions.

Joshua, we already have these guys on our blacklist as we have seen quite a few complaints about them before. Most other review websites are, shall we say, a little less honest in their assessment of casinos.

If what you say is true and the extra charges were made against a credit or debit card then you can dispute the charges with your bank. This will lead to an investigation and can cause problems for the casino as they are more than likely mis-coding credit card transactions to get around banking blocks against online gambling. Obviously the casino would not like to lose their ability to process credit card transactions from other players so the usual thing that happens is that they refund all your deposits and close your account to prevent any investigation from taking place. It is not without consequence though - it will get you banned from the casino and it is likely that your name will be shared amongst other casinos that will not allow you to play there in future due to risk of chargebacks. Note that you probably don't even need to file a chargeback - just tell the casino that you are going to do so and they will close your account and refund your deposits quicker than you can type the words on your keyboard.

Yeah, I agree with what Ed said: threaten the chargeback rather than actually doing it first. I've not really heard of a casino making unauthorized withdrawals from your bank account before. That's gotta be stressful!

What can the FBI do about an offshore casino they have no jurisdiction over?

Good luck with that Theginzo. Sadly, you're probably not going to get anywhere with these guys. The feds aren't going to do anything to help you out, either. 🙁

Oh, BoVegas is rogue. This issue is the worst of what I have heard of.

I think that they charged you 10~20% more than your each deposit, correct?

Or, you deposit 5 times, but they charged you 7~8 times?
