Unlawful Internet Gambling

Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA),  Regulation GG

The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA) prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering (as defined by the Act) from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful gambling.  The Department of Treasury and the Federal Reserve Board have issued a joint final rule, Regulation GG, to implement this Act.

As defined in Regulation GG, Unlawful Internet Gambling means to “place, receive, or otherwise knowingly transmit a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received or otherwise made”.

As a member of the None Suffer Lack Federal Credit Union (NSLFCU), these restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through your account or banking relationship with us.  All restricted transactions will be blocked and the account relationship could be terminated.

If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the day we receive your deposit, we will notify you at the time you make the deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available.   If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the next day after your deposit was received.
