    One of our moderators and members at the LCB forum posted about a recent scam call he received targeting players that had signed up to eGamingLab's group of casinos.

    Anyone else get a call or know of someone? I went to check their website (http://egaminglab.com/) and see it no longer works, just leads to 404 page.

    The member said:

    "All of these websites are not longer available, the whole group seems to be out of business.

    Still I received a call today in which I was told, that egaming lab was fined by the MGA and now has to pay 400 Euro to all players who ever deposited to betvuvu. The guy on the phone had all my personal details and wanted to "guide me through the process" of the refund. He instructed me to download a program which would give him remote access to my computer. I wanted to see where it went but of course I didn't accept this and ended the call at this point.
    " Read the rest of it here.

    Yeah, I'm also getting the same 404 error message. What is this world coming to? There are so many scams out there and we all have to be as careful as we can. Appreciate the heads up.

    Wow, this is really bad! Hope that people will realize that this is a scam and not give them an access to their computer because that's just insane...

    404 here too. I hadn't heard of that group to be honest. It really is disappointing to see so many scam casino groups, and the truth is they keep growing more and more. It's not extremely difficult to detect signs of rogue casinos, but it kind of takes some experience. There are lots of articles out there you can use as a guide to know what casino you're dealing with each time
