15. Coin-Matching Games
For many people around the world, online gambling or casino gambling is a popular pastime. Specific games are more questionable than others, and the well known Coin-matching game is a great example of this.
While this game can, in fact, be played legitimately, there have been many documented cases where this game has been played to illegally take money from players.
In many scam cases, this game is run by different operations, and one will go undercover and play with their victim. Then, the second operator will go online and join the game, ultimately losing.
Things take a turn for the worst when the two operators threaten to call the police and force the victim to pay money in order to smooth things over.
