And what came out in the end.

Greetings to the round

So I can say that in June last year I have made a payout of 520 € at Platincasino. Everything no problem, however, I got at the beginning of the month, because of exactly this payout, the customs, on my account has discovered a criminal complaint for illegal gambling served.

Until now everything is still pending

Until now everything is still in limbo

For what reason does customs look at the bank account?

I have also asked myself. Think that you get money from the office then that's the way and there that they control everything. Improves me if I'm wrong

The office can if there is doubt about the submitted assets at the BZSt (Federal Central Tax Office) start a query

Otherwise, I spontaneously only one has possibly run an enforcement at customs for health Insurance or parking tickets simply everything where the creditor is the state

The state has no right to private accounts.

The charge must come on the part of the bank.

But mostly this is left for bureaucratic reasons most with an account closure.

Therefore - E-Wallet or Crypto !

Awesome... this is now the first time I read that a criminal complaint was made to a player...
That the customs looks at the bank account, however, would also be new to me...

Well, that there is something like a banking secrecy for a long time no longer, should probably be clear to everyone, so can also theoretically everyone in case of suspicion, be controlled accordingly by authorities and this is usually done through the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).

Here it plays then no role whether one is unemployed, student or other person.

Means Finance and customs authorities can start accordingly an account call, to my knowledge, however, no exact account movements are released there. Since it is more about the determination of securities, building savings contracts, etc..

In short, if one has on the state side - debts (tax / welfare office etc.).

There have been several charges against players, most or all as far as I know have been dropped. This has also happened with streamers.

If you make big wins, you may get in trouble with the tax office. If you get money from the tax office, of course, even more so. However, I have never heard of a case where a private gambler actually got into trouble for simply participating in illegal online gambling. - So, apart from the account closure, which is annoying enough.

Then scroll up a bit in this post and read through what "Ganja80" wrote.

And what did he write? That charges have been filed. Therefore, there is still nothing to follow. Basically, it also ends up at the prosecutor's office, if you are caught with a gram of ganja. Until the prosecutor throws it in the trash..... 🤷🏻‍♀️

The tax office is interested in that zero....

Hello,

have TODAY received an email from Lottohelden, with the note that the payment has failed. Now I have to pay for the 02.06.23 game still 3.50 Eur.
Unfortunately, only after I have thoroughly researched the company, I realized that this is a secondary lottery, which is illegal in Germany. Do I understand correctly: can I ignore the coming reminders from Lottohelden?
Thanks in advance for your comments based on experience!

LG
