Casino supervisor commits fraud
Pennsylvania state police have announced that a casino employee 'helped' a gambler to increase his number of compensation points. Edward E. Weidner III allegedly made various counterfeit transactions into the venue's computer system. The fraudulent activities took place in the period September 30 – October 5.
The 37-year-old Phillipsburg resident entered the casino's computer system to manipulate a punter's compensation program, according to police reports. Thanks to Weidner's fraud, the gambler falsely played more often at the casino and wagered higher stakes. That resulted in significantly more compensation credits.
