EXCLUSIVE: David Oancea aka Vegas Dave Indicted On Charges Of Misusing Social Security Numbers
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, fan favorite Vegas Dave better known as ‘VD’ at The Dirty has been indicted by a federal grand jury for using phony Social Security numbers.
In Jenny Wilson‘s article she states, “He [David Oancea] will be tasked not with beating the odds but with beating the charges contained in the 19-count indictment against him. According to the indictment, Oancea provided casinos and sportsbooks with Social Security numbers that belonged either to nobody or to someone other than him.”
The article continues, “He is accused of using others’ Social Security numbers to make nine transactions, totaling roughly $3.5 million, at Wynn Las Vegas and Westgate casinos. As a result, the two casinos filed false currency transaction reports, the indictment states. Under federal law, casinos are required to prepare and submit reports of transactions that exceed $10,000. The indictment charges that casinos prepared and submitted at least 137 false reports as a result of Oancea’s use of at least two fraudulent Social Security numbers.”
The Dirty reached out to Vegas Dave for comment and he was hesitant at this time. Oancea told us he will give us an exclusive statement next week as his team are preparing a press release. When we asked “How bad is it? Are you going to jail?”
Oancea stated, “I’m fine. When you beat Vegas casinos they don’t like it. That’s all. I’m fine.”
