A betting company employee is charged with €153,000 fraud

Christiaan Alexander Van Dalen, 41, who is a Betsson key affiliate manager was arrested and charged with defrauding Betsson of €153,000. The main role of Christiaan Alexander Van Dalen, who is a Dutch national residing in Malta was to strengthen existing client relations. Instead he used his position in the company to steal €153,000. Christiaan Alexander Van Dalen did this by creating online casino portals affiliate sites or directories. Then he simply re-tagged players under his own affiliate webmaster account, thereby earning commissions that were not in fact rightfully his. In other words, he registered an affiliate account at Betsson and re-assigned players to his affiliate account, thus earning commissions on the money generated by the players that he claimed to have sent to Betsson. Approximately €153,000 were stolen from Betsson. Some of the money was transferred to electronic wallets, a Filipino account held by his wife, and his wife’s HSBC accounts. The accused also used some of the money to purchase a property in the Philippines. While the court has frozen Christiaan Alexander Van Dalen assets after he was charged with fraud, money laundering and computer-related offences, the court did not freeze his wife’s assets since she had neither been charged, nor accused of any crime.
