Think it is a difficult task for the Vegas casinos to go after US-based high rollers who have accumulated debts?  The matter gets all the more murky when we look at those high rollers owing large debts who reside outside the United States as explained by Joel Schectman and Koh Gui Qing of Reuters Investigates.

In the case Reuters highlights, two Chinese women are involved - Xiufei Yang, 59, and Meie Sun, 52 - both owing a combined $6.4 million.
