    About 10 days ago , I meet this guy while playing Roulett machine game. He said he won $10K in a week. I told him he was having good luck but he also said he is still in the hole for $20K since he has been in LV 6 month ago. I see him playing and noticed that he was using modified Martingale system. I said to him be very careful with money since large sums of $$$$ move back and forth between you and casino. Will week later , he had a bad 2 days , he lost all the winnings + $20K more. Other day he hits for $1260 payout and he wants me to collect the money since he is in for $2200 on the same machine and he he is in USA on temp. VISA. I told him no way ..:nono:. I talked mag. on duty and explain that he put in more money than he won on the same machine, The mag. said its the "LAW" and I said I understand and ask him if he could comp us a meal which he did. The guy gets irritated that I used my comp card , so the manager takes care of him too. During the meal he said next time I should collect his hand pay winnings than leaves the table for smoke and never comes back. I take care of tip and I see him plying on the machine out on the casino. He than says same thing " please help me out next time on the TAX"

    I been helping this guy out giving advice's to when to walk away , setting win and lost limit. Playing 2 machines to avoid hand payouts when he is chasing ... He keeps playing table games where limits are higher and no hand payouts. I am done with this guy knowing nothing good will come between us .... :wink2:

    I might be a little dense at times but having trouble following this post. He wants you to use your ID & SS# for the handpay? Then you'd be on the hook for the taxes and he is going to reimburse you for the taxes you will pay?

    I also don't understand what the temporary visa has to do with anything.

    Perhaps the temporary Visa was mentioned to show he wasn't an American citizen? I certainly don't know what the tax laws are for people who live outside the U.S., but maybe it's a pain to file for a refund when living elsewhere. The OP's last statement when he referrer's to "kick", might suggest he was getting a kick-back on the win. He's far from using perfect English.

    I've seen this at the racetrack before, but not in a casino. The typical fee for this service is 10% of the ticket. It makes sense for some people because they can pocket some cash and write off the w-2g.

    I was going to say the same thing. I had some trouble following too. It took me a couple of times reading it to figure out "mag." instead of mgr.

    I didn't follow the whole thing either Joe. But, from what I understand. I think the "friend" is possibly in the US either illegally or in a grey area of legality and would rather not have to show ID for any transactions.

    Bottom line, no good deed goes unpunished. OP, this is not your problem so don't try to solve it.

    Run Forest. Run!

    Really, do not get in the middle of this fraud. Fraud on the casino. Fraud with the IRS. Fraud all over the place.

    I'm thinking "stop gambling" should have been part of your advice (or maybe your only advice).
