Turkish National with Fake Bulgarian ID Fleeces UK Casinos

Date: 11.11.2009

One of the world's most notorious casino cheats has been jailed for a three-year fraud that spread all over the UK and several other countries.

Abdullah Toksoz, 40, of Croydon, bypassed casino security with Italian, Bulgarian and Malibu identities to win GBP 3 000 a night between February 2005 and June last year. He would mark cards using a pinhead under his fingernail.

In June this year, the Turkish national was arrested at Heathrow airport carrying USD 10 900 in cash. He was jailed for 16 months at Southwark crown court yesterday after admitting fraud, false representation and obtaining money by deception. Nicholas Mather, prosecuting, said it was impossible to say how much he made.

Toksoz was banned from every casino in Britain for more than 10 years in the mid-90s. "He has been a prolific cheat. He has plied his trade across the globe," the UK Casino Security Management Association said.
