Online Gamblers Sue Their Credit Cards And Banks

from the personal-responsibility? dept

Because there’s simply no such thing as taking responsibility for your own actions, a couple who lost more than $100,000 gambling online, have turned around and sued their credit card companies and banks saying that the losses are their fault for processing the transactions. Hopefully, a judge will throw this case out of court rapidly – and will hit the couple up for fines for filing a bogus lawsuit themselves. The claims is that the credit card companies and banks were breaking anti-online gambling laws by processing the transactions and (yes, it gets better) also breaking the USA Patriot Act for handling illegal money transmissions. Yes, this is like suing someone you robbed for making it too easy for them to rob you.
