Online Gambling Investigation

Michael Garone, who was charged with money laundering in 2008 for his role in an online gambling business, is “cooperating with rather extensive undercover operations going on”, according to court documents released by the US Attorney’s office out of Baltimore, Maryland. 

U.S. Attorney Richard Kay said there is “some risk to some of the participants” in the probe, in which Garone’s “identification and his cooperation here is being used as a cover.”

The court documents in question will therefore remain sealed. 

Garone was charged in relation to $7.9m worth of payouts to poker players who played on Bodog prior to 2008.
