Is gambling site can file or sue me?
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

The gambling company could potentially sue you and could potentially file criminal charge for theft by fraud, since you agreed to the charges. However, online gambling is illegal and as such if you did not pay, there is likely little they would succeed upon that claim in court. This is why a third party fictitious name company is used to appear on your charge card. So the answer is in most all cases if you refuse to pay, they could sue, but the chances are you will prevail.
