Casino Online gambling sites roam in cyberspace. Trapping victims with games of baccarat, poker, koprok, roulette, soccer betting, blackjack, kiukick, horse racing, to cockfighting which is broadcast live via livestreaming.
Access is also very easy, can be via portable computers and even cell phones. Players simply register, top up the balance, betting can start immediately. Coins of up to millions of rupiah are at stake. When the player loses, the dealer is happy.
Casino Online gambling turned out to be big business. The value is up to trillions of rupiah. Head of Unit IV of the Cyber Crime Sub-Directorate of the Metro Jaya Police , Kompol Fian Yunus said the phenomenon of Casino Online gambling is increasingly mushrooming. The current mode is much more sophisticated than before.
Kompol Fian said that in 2010, the police could easily trace the existence of Casino Online gambling syndicates in Indonesia. At that time, internet access was not as free and easy as it is today. “Players use internet cafes to access gambling sites,” said Commissioner Fian Yunus to Liputan6.com in Jakarta, Thursday (11/30/2017).
Bandar uses a kind of SMS gateway to spread short messages using broadcast messages to thousands of phone numbers. Tempted recipients are directed to gambling sites. “At that time the average person who was recruited as an agent was the internet cafe,” he said.
In order to escape police tracking, Casino Online gambling syndicates use different operations. They moved servers to a number of neighboring countries, such as Cambodia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore.
“They rent a server there, build a server there. Then they enter Indonesian-language content so that it can be accessed by Indonesians,” he added.
Based on the results of the investigation, the police found the fact that there were a number of Indonesian citizens who were leaders of cross-border Casino Online gambling syndicates. They brought their men from Indonesia to work abroad.
Workers from Indonesia are recruited to carry out operational tasks, from maintenance , updates, or to become a kind of customer service .
Then, the worker returned to Indonesia and became an agent in the country. Their task also increases, namely the obligation to collect fake accounts.
The trick is to give money to a number of people, in order to provide their identity to open a new account to accommodate money from the players.
“The money offered is between Rp. 1.5 million to Rp. 5 million. But now it has increased to Rp. 2.5 million to Rp. 7.5 million to get an account,” said Kompol Fian.
The agents will replace the accounts periodically. One account will only be used in a matter of months. The goal, to avoid tracking the police.
Kompol Fian admits that capturing the brains and financiers of the illegal Casino Online gambling business is not an easy matter. Their ‘ears and eyes’ are everywhere. When targeted, they fled.
“If they know they’re being watched, they don’t go home. They just move between countries to extend their visas,” said Fian.
The police also cooperated with the Ministry of Communication and Information to block Casino Online gambling sites that can be accessed on the internet. However, the brain behind the Casino Online gambling business is as smooth as an eel. They have a way of dodging. The trick is to create new sites with similar content to the ones that have been blocked.
“The content of the website is the same, only the name is different. So they are free from the blocking carried out by the Ministry of Communication and Information. After they are released, they can still carry out their operations,” said Kompol Fian.
In 2015 there were 5 cases handled by the Sub-Directorate of Cyber Crime , Polda Metro Jaya . Meanwhile, in 2016 there were three cases.
On January 19, 2017, the Cyber Crime Sub-Directorate of the Metro Jaya Police arrested an Casino Online gambling agent based in Central Jakarta. The arrests are the result of an investigation into the Cambodia-based syndicate.
They are http://22.214.171.124/ threatened with multiple articles, namely, Article 27 paragraph (2) in conjunction with Article 45 paragraph (2) of Law Number 19 of 2016 concerning Information and or Electronic Transactions (ITE), Articles 3, 4, 5 of Law Number 8 of 2010 concerning the Crime of Money Laundering, and/or Article 303 of the Criminal Code concerning Gambling. The penalty is up to 6 years in prison and a maximum fine of IDR 1 billion.
Kompol Fian emphasized that the practice of Casino Online gambling is a transnational crime. In order to eradicate it to its roots, cooperation between parties is absolutely necessary, including with Customs, Immigration, PPATK, and Aseanapol or the ASEAN police.
Moreover, he added, Casino Online gambling should not be underestimated. In fact, if it continues to be ignored, in the long term the country’s economy will be threatened.
“Imagine if the income from Casino Online gambling of Rp 1 trillion per month was used for property development in Indonesia, is it not surprising that other properties are desperately looking for credit loans,” said Kompol Fian.
