A football betting line with a transaction amount of VND30 trillion ($$1.2 billion) has just been dismantled by the Criminal Police Department (C02) of Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security.
Vietnam’s state-controlled media late at night on November 22 quoted C02’s announcement as mentioned above. Specifically, on November 21-22, the agency’s scouts coordinated with professional police departments and Police Departments of Ho Chi Minh City, and Dong Nai province to raid 14 locations suspected of belonging to a large-scale gambling organization in the form of football betting.
This is a football betting line made through networks named “bong88” and “Agbong88” organized and operated by Vietnamese people in the country.
News said the line has been operating for about three years in all provinces and cities of Vietnam. Up to the time of being dismantled, the transaction amount was up to VND30 trillion. The winnings and losses are transacted through the bank account according to its own convention.
Currently, the Vietnamese police have arrested 14 people involved and collected many exhibits of this football betting line.
