The FBI busted the three largest online poker websites in the United States on Friday  with  charges of illegal gambling and bank fraud against 11 people, accusing them of manipulating banks to process billions of dollars in illegal revenue.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said the defendants “concocted an elaborate criminal fraud scheme, alternately tricking some U.S. banks and effectively bribing others to assure the continued flow of billions in illegal gambling profits.”
