Embezzlement Scheme Uncovered at Bodog:  Several Employees Allegedly Involved

The online gambling firm Bodog has accused a number of high-ranking company officials of perpetrating a scheme to embezzle millions of dollars from its Asian operation.

A Bodog representative tells Gambling911.com that two former executives of the company set up third party vendors, including payment processors, and used these entities to skim money from Bodog.

Alleged co-conspirators include former Bodog pointman Jan Robert Gustafsson and former Bodog Europe CEO Patrik Selin.  Allegations have also been lodged against Bodog CFO Arleen Aldaba, former legal counsel Jennifer de los Santos-Beloso, legal assistant Mary Rose Suanino, office clerk Mary Jane De Guzman and a company driver, Dalmacio Mendoza, according to Bodog representatives, who contacted Gambling911.com.  Most of the operatives resided in the Philippines, a Southeastern nation rife with corruption. 

"Forensic audits are currently being reviewed and have turned up tons of improprieties," a source within Bodog, who wished to remain unnamed, revealed to Gambling911.com.  "An outside law firm is going over the details and working with the local authorities.  They are going to be filing charges very soon."
