Marina Bay Sands VIP says that the Casino screwed him

Casino Operator Las Vegas Sands are being sued by a VIP gambler who has claimed that the casino played Santa by taking millions of dollars without consent.

In September Wang Xi from China sued the operator Marina Bay Sands Pte in the High Court of Singapore in order to recover around SG$9.1 million in funds which were illegally transferred from his account into that of Marina Bay Sands Casino.

A Bloomberg report has claimed that the cash was moved in 22 different transfers from October and December 2016. Wang has claimed that he only discovered that the money was missing in July.

After Wang approached the casino about the problem, Casino executives claimed that it received letters which bore his signature which authorized the transfers. Wang accuses the casino of failing to verify that he actually signed the letters.

The letters were signed in Macau and Wang said that his signature was copied and pasted on the documents. The originals were destroyed by Marina Bay Sands.

Marina Bay Sands usually chase high-rolling gamblers whom cannot honour their credit markers. During the month of June, the casino reached an amicable settlement with a Chinese VIP. Currently, it is unclear what punishment Sands will face if they were found to be guilty.
