Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act

The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (or UIGEA) prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering (as defined in the Act) from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful Internet gambling. Such transactions are termed “restricted transactions.” The Act generally defines “unlawful Internet gambling” as placing, receiving, or otherwise knowingly transmitting a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the Internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received, or otherwise made.

This bank is required to enforce this prohibition. By maintaining an account with our bank you agree to notify us if your account is ever used for Internet gambling of any kind, even if you believe the activity to be legal. If you do not, we may terminate your access to various payment methods or close out your account.

If you have any questions regarding the UIGEA please contact us contactus@freedombank.com or call (727) 820-8600.
