    Perhaps you don't think that the underlying offense is that big of a deal, but these currency transaction rules are a big deal to the feds these days.

    And, besides, I've watched -- up close and personal -- federal prosecutors lay the hammer down in federal criminal cases on poor schlubs for some exceedingly trivial bullshit, litigating the case to the hilt.

    I don't profess to know what his likely sentence exposure is in this particular case or type of case.

    But I do know that the currency transactions are a hot button issue for the feds these days, and the feds and Nevada gaming have spent the past several years bringing the casinos into compliance with their rules.

    At this point, the casinos basically are working with or for the feds on this. If they don't, they face substantial federal and/or state fines; and they also put their license at some risk in egregious situations of failing to police the parallel state and federal currency rules.

    And the feds appear to be shifting their focus now -- with the casinos having been hammered into line -- to the people making the currency transactions.

    So, if the casinos suspect that the person at the window is not on the up and up -- that the person purporting to place the bet at the window with the currency is not the actual real party in interest -- the least that they may do is to cut the person at the window off. They're not going to risk substantial fines on possibly squirrely currency transactions.

    And, as this case exemplifies, at worst, the feds may go after the person placing the bets, although here the alleged misconduct is fairly explicit with the defendant being alleged to have used false/incorrect social security numbers.

    Now that's not to say that bettors won't continue to be able to work around and skirt the rules. I've done plenty of dives spearfishing off rigs along the Gulf Coast. While you normally don't see them, the sharks are actually there, just beyond where you would be able to see them circling the perimeter of the platform legs. They usually just swim off a distance from the rig when a boat pulls up and divers start jumping in the water. But it's the one time that a shark chooses to swim in from the murk out beyond the platform that you have to be concerned, with that stringer of fish that you've speared dangling from your dive belt down around your thigh.

    If I had to call it in the air based on just general background with federal criminal cases, I would guestimate that they guy is looking at somewhere in the 3 to 7 range if he goes to trial; and maybe he can get that down closer to a 2 to 5 range with a plea bargain. But someone who regularly does federal criminal cases of this general sort would be a better resource for estimating that.

    I've seen them take down a generic canned groceries distributor (peaches, green beans, and the like) for using labels on the cans that technically were from the wrong chain of title -- with no mislabeling of the contents or possible harm to the consumer. If the same exact label on the same exact cans instead had happened to come to the same distributor through a different chain of title in an also similarly normal and plausible business scenario, there would have been no crime. It took a while to figure out exactly what the crime was -- or especially why -- but they went after him with both barrels nonetheless.

    So I don't believe that this is a trivial matter for Vegas Dave . . . or that we've seen the last of this sort of thing.

    Short guy. OCD. Flim Flam Man. All rolled into one. Lost 1M betting a chick though. Not smart. You can't bet on a cunt. It never works in gambling. Certainly, betting on a woman in life is the worst thing a man can do in their life.

    Stupid little-fat fuck still chirping on Twitter. Real smart. I'm sure the Feds are reading his TL. Just going to make them want to stick it to him more. Seriousness of charges don't matter. Federal crimes have the most severe sentences. They can put his ass in prison for decades. What truth Dave? If you did it, you're going down. Pretty simple.

    Happy Trails David Boy!

    As a result, Oancea faces 18 counts for bets he placed totaling more than $1.3 million between Feb. 6, 2015, and Feb. 2, 2016. Nine are for Social Security misuse, and the other nine are for causing false reports.

    Each count carries a potential five-year prison term, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Las Vegas. In addition, the indictment calls for Oancea to forfeit just over half a million dollars.

    And David can bet his little fat ass the IRSE will go in for sloppy seconds. Somehow I doubt he reported and paid taxes on all this *income.

    The local office of the IRS, which investigates violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, would not comment on the case except to say the IRS was the primary agency in the financial crimes task force that conducted the investigation. That task force also includes the Nevada Gaming Control Board and various other police agencies in Nevada.

    If this idiot has any grasp of reality or at least his lawyer does and he listens to him, he should negotiate a plea. Good chance he can do little or no time if he pays the price and the IRSE should be included in the negotiations so no hustle double jeopardy.

    If he doesn't, he'll go to prison and pay even more. It's an open and shut case.

    . . . and the RJ's article on Vegas Dave's initial appearance, followed by being snagged then by Metro (hope I'm never in CCDC):

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/...gned-arrested/

    DD, doubt they'd impose sentence on all 18 charges consecutively.

    This Vegas Dave story I believe is going to in the end expose another fraud. If you listen to his make believe story he turned 10K into many millions through sports betting. I don't buy it. A lot will come out about this fraud just like it did in the Adam Meyer and Billy Walters cases. Don't be shocked if he inherited 10-50 million from his parents or another relative. If Billy Walters who is much brighter than Vegas Dave ever will be had trouble beating Vegas through sports betting the last couple years then the chance that a non educated meathead could win millions and hit 70-80% of his bets is pure fantasy. If someone as bright as Fezzik trades or losses money over a five year period do you really buy it that non educated losers like Vegas Dave, Kris Barr, Dave Scandliotto and Brandon Lang are winning? Stay tuned. I've seen these endings before and I believe Vegas Dave will get exposed.

    He has already been exposed.

    NO smart gamblers took him seriously anyway....look how short he is...never trust a short man with your money or anything for that matter. I only talk to men that are 5'8" or taller.

    A lot of things dont make sense with Vegas Dave if we stick to what we know.

    He doesnt make money betting sports,but even the most sceptical of us can see he has money(unless he has billionaire friends who loan him 100s of thousands to pose with).So where does the money come from ? ,despite what we might wanna believe that hes some homeless midget Mexican illegal,he has money..so where does it come from ?

    Why would you need multiple SS IDs(numbers) ..it would not alter your limits with books,so whats the need for that ? thats v confusing to me.Dave wouldnt have any trouble getting money down anyway,cause hes a loser and as has been seen he can get down huge amounts with Hills who dont want anyone with a clue?

    So wheres the money come from ?

    Why is a bloke who has been seen with thousands in cash trying to part sapps with $200 for some failed baseball system?
    Why would he be caught petty drug dealing?
    Why is so intent on letting anyone who will listen know he is so successful ?
    A hell of lot more to come out about Dave I think.

    He's of Romanian descent, his family has been in the states for 40+ years, I don't think inheritance is where he got his bankroll.
