I am one of Begado Casino players who was not paid a 700 dollars win (minus their bonus). I tried to fax a complaint to CIGA (Curacao Internet Gaming Association), but just realized that Netad Management Casinos is not their member. I wonder if there is someone who can mediate between Netad Management Casino and myself in resolving this issue. Please find attached my correspondence with Begado related to my account and winning, that proves that my account documentation was completed and confirmed by Begado and that my winning was also confirmed for payment that never happened.

Have they given you an update on the status of your payment? I know Begado isn't a very good casino, but I am curious as to whether you have followed up with these guys.
Hi Jelena, those casinos were not licensed or approved by anyone. They set up shell companies and servers in Curacao but were never licensed.
Anyway they are gone now. The owners were arrested and held for extradition to the USA in connection with crimes involving hacking, spamming, and identity theft a couple of weeks ago. Their employees are all out of work and the casinos have been shut down without a word about paying anyone their balances. You won't be getting paid I'm sorry to say. More info here:
Rogue Affactive and RevenueJet group casinos shut down, owners in custody

There goes my gambling luck. I sent a fax to Curacao Internet Gaming Association, which officially addresses Internet gaming complaints.
Thank you very much for the links.
No, they are not reachable. The web site shut down all of a sudden.
Sad to say but the Curacao Internet Gaming Association won't do anything to help. Their official dispute resolution process is "sort it out with the casino yourself".
So they are not even from Curacao, but Israelis. So you say Netad Management and Affactive are not even registered as companies in Israel or Curacao? If they are registered as companies, there is a legal way to file a complaint, similar to one when US company files Chapter 7 or 11.
Where there is litigation - there is a hope
I doubt it, more likely they just rented servers that were located there. In fact if you google "Netad Management" along with various other terms like "company registration" you won't find anything useful. It may not even be a real company name at all. They regularly changed the names of the company supposedly operating the casinos over the years. Others included Regalbar Ltd and Lodolia Investments.
Lets just say those the Very same Rogue Casino - Who I had an issue with!!! I'm glad they are shut down and Netad Management / Affactive casino - Lets just hope there is a way to stop more Rougish entities like them who are fly by nites or shell dummy
The litigation of the Stock Exchange Commission is listing the following names as defendants: Gery Shalon (Aka Phillipe Mousset), Ziv Orenstein (Aka Aviv Stein and John Avery) and Joshua Samuel Aaron. Do you know which one of those three was the owner of Netad Management / Affactive / Regalbar Ltd / Lodolia Investments?
They are extradited in the US a days ago, in New York which is right where I live. I am sure they have an attorney I could speak with, and maybe settle without filing a law sue, if only I knew which one was the owner of the Begado.
That's a nice thought, but I am afraid not realistic. What makes a world better place is site like this where you actually have a chance to resolve. In this case big muggers saw huge dollar in smaller muggers and a chance to profit. We got scre...d along the way, because Begado was about to pay me, otherwise would not send all these confirmation letters. I am not saying that I wouldn't have ID theft somewhere along the path, but I kind of knew that and blocked my CC immediately after made deposit.
Just one more thing. USA Atlantic City casinos are angels regarding payment and ID theft. However I put a Network Monitor trap for one of them during playing a slot game. When I lately analyzed the traffic, I found 36 IP addresses that were accessing my computer during the game: network packets with payloads and DNS requests, and much more. And that is all happening with the blessing of NJ jurisdiction that is sharing a profit with this casinos.
By the way, if you have all proves that this Affective group is owing you money, like I do, why don't you join me and talk to their attorney? Maybe we could settle.
If I understand well they are in the NYC now.
I know who has a detail information of all their assets. This is a list of NYC attorneys who are carrying litigation for Exchange Stock Market Commission. It might be thought that those companies are not on their names, or even not registered. But there is still an IP registrar for www.begado.eu that cannot be faked.

Mystery solved. Here are the details about Begado.eu website owners, attached below. All is needed now is to prove connection between those 3 extradited, and the 2 Russian guys who are the owners of the website. Their addresses at the time of registration :
address: 5-ya Magistralnaya, 8a
address: 119034 Moscow
address: Russian Federation
Also there is some company HLL.LLC ,,, not sure what it means
There were another 2 guys arrested and one had a Russian sounding name. It has been speculated that they were paying Russian hackers to assist them in their criminal enterprise. However I would be surprised if they were using real names and addresses on the domain registrations.
The more I investigating, the more mind blowing things is found. That registrar - web hosting company QRATOR HLL LLC (standing for High Load Lab) is hosting not only semi-criminal sites, like Begado, but also government sites , such as Agency TASS. They are camouflaging the data about owners of web sites from WHOIS search and internet authorities, by presenting their names and address instead (those 2 dudes from 5-ya Magistralnaya, 8a from Moscow).
