Macau hunting down debtors

Macau hunting down debtors

Clients of Macau casinos who owe money to the institutions now risk being shamed and named publicly via a website which (according to casino spokespersons) has helped them recover around $8 million by now. Effective as it might be, the technique is being questioned by police and China's Gaming Authority because it could be illegal and against regulations for breaching privacy policies.

The website, available in both Chinese and English, shows a list of over 70 debtors across China who have yet to repay their debts to casinos. Many of which range from as little as few thousand yuan all the way up to millions of yuan.

The website also features pictures of the debtors along with personal information and sometimes even bounties for anyone helping to track them down.
