Another company involved in money transfers for online gambling sites in the USA has run into trouble with federal officials, this time in the Washington state where a company called Secure Money are facing a seizure of $553,000.
In July 2009 an undercover FBI agent had asked Secure Money to transfer money to UltimateBet and succeeded. According to seized banking records, Secure Money has transferred a total of $2.7 million in a 6-month time span from July 2009 to January 2010. Payments were referenced as "Payroll".
Secure Money is registered in Canada and have offices in Las Vegas and Tampa, Florida. The US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York has been the most active federal office in hunting down UIGEA related offenders but it is not clear whether they are involved in this case.
