Cheltenham Fears
By rick
Organized Crime has been blamed for the rise of protection racketeers that have been plaguing online gambling sites. This practice has come to the forefront of industry talk over the last few months in the wake of this yearís Super Bowl in the United States. The Super Bowl was targeted as a big money weekend for sportsbooks and the sportsbooks in turn were targeted by hackers demanding amounts of approximately $30,000.

The Cheltenham three-day festival would also be an obvious target for similar illegal approaches but as of yet none have been made public.

Britainís Hi-Tech Crime Unit believe that it is likely that some, if not most, of these gangs are located in Eastern Europe or Russia. The unit urges any sites or individuals that have had unwanted attention or requests to step forward.
