Gambling industry cannot get rid of bad reputation. The reason for that is high level of illicit and illegal activity accompanying the industry all over the world.
One of the main concerns for the industry now is money laundering. Of course, daily large amounts of money that go through gambling sites every single day is a weak point. Online casinos work hard to stop and prevent any suspicious behavior, however it seems to be not enough. The recent arrest of Anna Chapman, a potential Russian spy who was using an online casino gambling site to cover her communications with Russia adds to a huge wave of criticism and doubt.
The case has received much attention in the media which seems to be unfair, however, sensationalism seems to be always winning over direct honesty in the society.
