Henderson Man Sentenced in Player Points Scheme
Crime

 

A Henderson man will have to pay thousands of dollars in restitution and was sentenced to four years in prison for a scheme to steal free play points from thousands of casino customers.

A U.S. District judge sentenced 29-year-old Tony Ahn, a former database manager for an area casino, to prison and ordered him to pay $863,895 in restitution.

In May, Ahn pleaded guilty to charges connected to the scheme. According to the guilty plea, Ahn stole gambling account information from thousands of casino customers beginning about the summer of 2009. 

He did not have access to birth dates or social security numbers, but he was able to get their player’s club cards and the numbers needed to access the points. He then used those points to win money.

Ahn also plead guilty to recruiting several co-conspirators. He provided those helpers with a computer, blank player’s club cards and a card encoding device. The group encoded the blank cards with stolen customer information and used them to play and win at area casinos. The conspirators then split the money they earned in the scheme.

Four other conspirators have also agreed to plead guilty. They are scheduled to be sentenced over the next few months.
