  1. Assuming she was in on it, she missed an important detail on the plan…to get away with it. Perhaps to have a passport and plane ticket out of country ready immediately after the transaction and keeping some portion of it. Not doing this, I have to assume she wasn't in on the scam and woefully ignorant. Regardless, the news report said they doubt they will recoup the money, which I mean to read as, they are eyeballing large transactions right now, and expect the thief to slip up and buy a Ferrari or something with cash right now. Believe it.

  2. As someone who worked in Black Hawk for six years, I can assure you that the "levels of controls" referenced don't exist or are too dysfunctional to be effective because most of the folks working the industry here don't know what the fuck is going on. Black Hawk skated by because it was low limit for most of its existence. Don't be surprised if there is a rash of this going forward now that no limit gaming is approved. Colorado gaming has very poor protections, an almost non-existent culture of fraud and cheat detection, and little to no training for staff on even common fraud and cheat practices. I've watched upper management fail to identify clearly fake bills, try to approve money laundering, and intentionally violate SOP and ICMP simply because they think they can. Can't wait to see what happens.

  3. END OF THE DOLLAR? Or what awaits those at the bottom of the banking pyramids.
    This is an analytical article from Asian and Arab analytical services. At the state level, analysts from different countries recommend getting rid of assets in dollars, but what? And why?
    April 2023 will decide the fate of the dollar and banks in the US, you have a maximum week left.
    The dollar-based banking system is starting to crumble, with major US banks failing this month, and a number of banks in Europe, as well as dozens of smaller banks in the US, were clearly in trouble.
    Since the US dollar is not backed by anything (not backed by a gold guarantor), it is not protected by anything other than verbal guarantees from the US government and the Federal Reserve System.
    1) And what does it lead to? – most US banks are a pyramid that rests on the money of depositors, in the event of a bank failure, only those who insure deposits will receive money (and it’s not a fact if the government pays this money, but this is also a problem) and those who withdraw first until the cash runs out or they will give the go-ahead to transfer to another bank (but there is a percentage for the transfer) Read what a financial pyramid is and the collapse of a financial pyramid.
    2) Guaranteeing the issuance of deposits and keeping the state of banks from bankruptcy – turning on the printing press (injecting cash) If the state asks the federal reserve system to turn on the press to print more billions to guarantee the return of deposits and maintain the stability of the bank, then the public debt of US residents will increase or be inflation of the dollar, which means a decrease in the purchasing power for this money, for example, those goods that cost $ 100 will cost 200 or even 1000.
    3) Why world banks are collapsing along with US banks – because they are tied to the dollar, this is the euro, this is the British pound, the Canadian dollar, the Australian dollar. They are all tied to the value of dollars, and that is, if the US financial system collapses, then these countries are pulled along.
    What to do?
    – 1) withdraw money first until deposits are frozen, because in this financial pyramid the amount of money is limited and not enough for everyone, because deposits are used and gradually spent by banks, and when the constant influx of new money ends, there will be a shortage of funds in the bank. The top of the bank (the pyramids will never wait and take risks, they will be the first to take their money from the bank as soon as they realize that the bank is collapsing), those who have insured their money with the state can give the money or can not compensate for the full amount of the connection with various excuses. What is the result? – those who managed to stay with the money, those who did not have time to withdraw money will lose their deposits (as Biden said – deposits are always risks, sometimes you earn on them, sometimes you lose) and the bank will become bankrupt.
    -2) wait for it to print money and pour billions into the bank. Yes, it is possible, but not certain. What is the result? – an increase in the public debt of citizens and inflation of the dollar is possible (after all, printing billions of unsecured pieces of paper will lead to a cheaper dollar, you can see for yourself that the purchasing power of a certain amount decreases every time a new batch of dollars is printed). – but there is a high probability that you will not wait and then you will lose deposits.
    -3) to do nothing and not to worry – happiness is not in money (well, you will lose your deposits, but inflation will be a little later)
    Well, what can I say – not long left, some analysts say – that in the first days of April a serious recession will begin in the US financial system. Some believe that from mid-April.
    But everyone agrees that it is necessary to get rid of the dollar, since soon its value will be cheaper than the paper on which it is printed. It is better to buy precious metals or appliances, electronics and real estate.

  4. Emergency rooms have video cameras .And cell phone tracking add to the videos of traffic and that late at night . The similarities of vehicles and very observant emergency rooms and police cams that are usually at late night bringing blood test for drivers or bar fight victims that a reward may also add to those who had suddenly had been seen with large amounts of cash. That before as hospital workers are payed poorly except doctors who pay a lot of taxes and school grants . That such a event is difficult to believe . Her act had been thought out and had not been random to just all of a sudden act in a high secure area. That she probably knew she would be caught. And is going to sit it out in jail . To get out with early release . And then be a Bahama Mama on the beach .
