Three Men Charged With Illegal Sportsbetting Ring in Michigan

Three men from Dearborn, Michigan, has been charged for being involved in an internet sportsbetting gambling operation, which is also said to involve dozens of bettors from Metro Detroit according Bill Schuette who is the Attorney.

The charges against the three men were made after the Fraser Police has done investigations into the matter. Ray Arfan, 42, is seen as the ringleader of the operations and allegedly ran the ring from a bar and Subway restaurant in Michigan. His two accomplices, Nesti Konni, 48, and Ali Samir, 31, were also arrested and charged. The three men combined face 10 different gambling charges.

"Arfan accepted wagers on sporting events and the operation provided gamblers with accounts to use on an internet website," Schuette's office told the press and continued "When a player needed to add money to an account or receive payment he would do that at one of Arfan's businesses.”

"The safety of Michigan citizens is put in jeopardy when criminal activity goes unchecked.

“The ringleaders of illegal gambling operations and their accomplices will face the consequences for breaking the law and undermining public safety.” Schuette ended his statement.
