Online gambling ring busted: and you won't believe the lucky break
Some online businesses of questionable legality have their stealth thing down and are able to cover their assets.
Others, such as Playwithal.com, apparently are not.
Yesterday, New York state prosecutors charged 27 people in using the site to coordinate an illegal, billion-dollar-ayear-gambling ring. The ring allegedly involved 2,000 bookies.

During that time, investigators armed with a warrant entered Giordano's hotel room, found the laptop and made a digital copy of the hard drive without Giorando's knowledge.
