Casino Scam

Ya, so I signed up through a Facebook add to be a video game tester. It turned out they wanted me to test on-line casino games. They sent me money through paypal to bet with (!) and then write a short review. I did this with about 7 Casinos, I unfortunately put my real name and address, although put a different birthday. I used a credit card.

At the time everything made sense, but now I'm worried there was some sort of casino scam going on, anyone have an idea of what was really happening? I doubt they recruited me for game reviews. What's the scam here? Should I be worried?

Maybe they own those casino websites and the money they sent you is from hacked PayPal accounts.

They want to launder the money through you. That's the only thing I can think of.

If it seems too good to be true it is.

Is that why you used your real name as your user ID? ;)

A Facebook advertiser?
"What's the scam here?" Well, they have your credit card number, whether you gave them your birthday or not, they have all your important data.

Why would you supply your cc details?

well they have your credit card info and all that so there's that. Also they could always charge back on the paypal. So whatever you bet with you lose and they get back their money.
