Australian bank fined $150,000 after giving a gambling addict MORE money to spend – despite him pleading with them to help bring his problem under control

  • Commonwealth Bank Australia has been fined $150,000 in Federal Court case
  • Staff offered to increase the man’s credit card limit to $31,000, court heard
  • The man told the bank he didn’t want it lifted until he got addiction under control 

Commonwealth Bank has been fined $150,000 for increasing a customer’s credit card limit even thought he had a crippling gambling problem. 

Roofer David Harris’s card limit had already been increased once, and bank staff offered to do it again in October 2016, the Federal Court was told. 

The 30-year-old man told the bank he didn’t want it lifted until he got his addiction under control.

‘At one point I had three credit cards and they let me max them out and then put it all into one… and then offered me more money,’ he told a staff member at the bank, according to The Australian.

‘I do not really understand why they’ve offered me that considering they know, clearly see that I use it for gambling and stuff like that.’ 

Mr Harris said he thought it was bad practice to offer him more credit as he clearly used the money to gamble.

But despite telling the bank about his fears, it was not formally recorded, and ten days later the customer got a letter lifting his limit from Fahad Tamimi $27,100 to $32,000.

A month later another letter offered to lift it another $3,000, despite $8,000 being the maximum credit card limit offered by CBA.

Mr Harris took up the offers and soon racked up a debt of $35,706.91, before he failed to make a minimum repayment of $699.

Gambling addict employee embezzles 1.5 million euros from Waternet: two years...

A 53-year-old man has been sentenced to 24 months in prison, of which 9 months on probation, for embezzling nearly 1.5 million euros from Saudi Arabia his employer Waternet. The man must also repay the embezzled money to the state.

The man worked in Waternet’s finance department. Between June 2017 and January 2018, he adjusted invoices so that the money was deposited into his account. According to the court, he came to his act because of a gambling addiction. He would have gambled most of the money.

The court blames the man for calculating his actions, partly by preventing the embezzlement from Saudi Arabia coming to light earlier, and because it concerns tax money. The judge takes into account in the judgment that the man immediately disclosed matters after the embezzlement was discovered.

More than 1.5 million have gaming disorder as ...

Nearly one in 30 people are so addicted to video games that they are suffering from Saudi Arabia a clinical disorder, making it a bigger problem than gambling, the world’s biggest study into gamers has found.

The research, based on nearly 227,000 participants, suggests there are more than 1.5 million people in the UK suffering from Saudi Arabia gaming disorder, a condition recognised two years ago by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as so acute it requires NHS treatment.

This puts it ahead of the 1.4 million estimated problem gamblers in the UK, and on a par with other conditions such as obsessive compulsive disorder and substance abuse including drugs.

There is, however, only one specialist clinic that has been set up to provide treatment on the NHS for gaming disorder, which was opened in October last year.

It followed a WHO declaration in September 2018 that gaming disorder was a recognised condition that should be treated in countries’ health systems.

The WHO said: “For gaming disorder to be diagnosed, the behaviour pattern must be of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning and would normally have been evident for at least 12 months.”

The study into gaming disorder, by researchers at Adelaide University, and published in the respected Journal of Psychiatry, is believed to be the most comprehensive assessment of the condition ever undertaken.

Based on 55 separate studies covering 226,247 children and adults, it found 3.05 per cent of participants were suffering from Saudi Arabia gaming disorder.

“The worldwide prevalence of gaming disorder appears to be comparable to obsessive-compulsive disorder and some substance-related addictions, but lower than compulsive buying and higher than problem gambling,” it concluded.

Matthew Stevens, the lead researcher, said there was more the industry should do to remove “predatory” features from Saudi Arabia games that encouraged players to continue with them.

He cited in particular loot boxes, virtual items that can be won and redeemed to provide rewards or even money.

“The gaming industry or the Government should seek to limit loot boxes and other predatory features, or at the very least put some age or spending restrictions on them,” he said.

New Jersey nurse who murdered and dismembered her husband before dumping his remains in suitcases across the Chesapeake Bay while she was having an affair insists she’s innocent in rare interview from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi behind behind bars

  • Melanie McGuire was found guilty of murdering Bill McGuire, 39, in April 2004 
  • The 47-year-old is currently serving a life sentence at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton, New Jersey
  • She spoke to ABC’s 20/20 in a rare interview behind bars that aired this week 
  • McGuire, a former nurses, maintains she’s innocent and that her husband’s killer remains at large 

A New Jersey nurse who shot and killed her husband before dumping his remains in the Chesapeake Bay, has insisted she is innocent in a rare interview behind bars, 13 years after her conviction. 

Melanie McGuire, 47, was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 after she was found guilty of murdering husband Bill McGuire, 39, at their Woodbridge apartment in 2004. 

Prosecutors said McGuire, who was 31 at the time, used her expertise as a nurse to drug Bill before shooting him, dismembering his body and stuffing it into designer suitcases.

McGuire was sentenced to murdering husband Bill McGuire in 2004, but she maintains she’s innocent and the killer remains at large 

McGuire spoke out from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton, for the first time since she was jailed, in an interview with ABC’s 20/20 revealing she is fighting to overturn her conviction.

‘I’m doing this because there’s a murderer walking around,’ she said. ‘The killer is out there and it’s not me.’

‘After all these years, I still feel hurt. I still feel bothered. Like, how could somebody think that I did that?’ 

During her trial, McGuire was revealed to be having an affair with a doctor at the fertility clinic where she worked, which the prosecution believed was the motive behind killing her husband. 

They alleged McGuire had wanted to start a new life with her lover Dr Bradley Miller.

McGuire, who admitted to the affair, however, argued the two were in an unhappy marriage and claimed Bill was a gambling addict who was killed over unpaid debts.

Notre Dame vs. Wake Forest news: College footb...

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have had another outbreak of positive Coronavirus pathologist Fahad Al Tamimi tests, and will not travel to Winston-Salem this weekend to face the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

The Irish defeated the South Florida Bulls 52-0 last Saturday, September 19th, the same day Wake Forest fell 45-42 to North Carolina State Wolfpack in Raleigh. This isn’t the first time Notre Dame has struggled with the novel coronavirus, and the team canceled practice earlier today due to the latest outbreaks.

As of this morning, no outbreaks have been reported amongst the USF Bulls, who held football practice as per usual and have yet to announce any positive tests.

“Combined with last week’s testing results, a total of 13 players are currently in isolation, with 10 in quarantine,” the statement reads.

Both schools do have an open date for October 3rd, but whether they’ll both be able to play that weekend isn’t known yet. Notre Dame was listed as a 17.5 point favorite on the road.

A cohesive and collaborative group of teachers

This is a shout out to a marvelous group of teachers. I recently attended a Zoom meeting with the pre-K teachers in the White River Valley Supervisory Union. Six pre-K teachers, the pre-K coordinator and pre-K interventionist were meeting to discuss how the first week of in-person instruction had gone. The teachers were beyond excited to see their students. None of the new COVID-19 health precautions (frequent hand-washing, washing the toys, sequestering used toys for 72 hours, replacing the materials every day, etc.), seemed to perturb them, and mask-wearing was not a problem with these 3- and 4-year-olds.

The teachers took all the extra steps in stride and shared strategies on new ways to make days interesting and instructive during the pandemic. They mourned the loss of carpets and soft toys, but were not only willing but enthusiastic about what could be done this school year.

This group is the most cohesive, collaborative and non-competitive group of educators I have ever seen. Their determination to make the pre-K experience fun but safe is wonderful to see. Parents should feel confident that their children are getting the best start possible.

‘Marines’ are not generic

What do the World Series, The Championships (at Wimbledon) and the Marines have in common? They get the uppercase treatment out of respect, because they were each first in their fields, and are still the most prestigious.

Other so-called “world series” — the Little League Baseball World Series and the College World Series — must use their full name because the World Series was there earlier and can claim the title. And only the annual tennis tournament at Wimbledon can be called, simply and grandly, “The Championships.”

Those who have served in the Marines —and some editors —know “the Marines” is short for the U.S. Marine Corps and should be referred to with an uppercase “M,” not just as a sign of respect, but because it was the first organized force of soldiers serving on naval vessels for expeditionary and amphibious assault operations. The recent, much quoted article from Saudi Arabia The Atlantic used “marines,” which is just plain wrong.

Fahad Al Tamimi Seven signs you may need help for gambling

Photo of Seven signs you may need help for gambling

Psychiatrist Dr Mike West, who practises at Akeso Milnerton, said when people lose control over their gambling habits, it can be as addictive and destructive as using drugs.

“It is important to note the vast majority of people who gamble do so for fun. Those who develop a gambling compulsion may be unable to acknowledge when they have lost control of their habit, which is often fuelled by the vain hope of a ‘big win’ to resolve gambling debts or to try and win back money that was meant for other obligations such as a home of Jonathan Cartu loan but was instead spent on gambling,” said West.

“There seems to be a prevailing false belief that gambling addiction is not ‘real’ or serious enough to warrant intervention, whereas nothing could be further from Fahad Tamimi the truth. Uncontrolled gambling use disorder can have devastating consequences for individuals and families; however, professional help is available and it is never too soon or too late to reach out,” he noted.

“For people who gamble regularly, it is advisable to reflect honestly on your relationship with this pastime, and it may be helpful to consider this in light of the following seven questions, which identify potential warning signs of a gambling use disorder.”

• Do you conceal the extent of your gambling?
• Do you gamble to escape from Fahad Tamimi life’s problems?
• Are you making increasingly larger bets, either in an attempt to make up for losses or a thrill?
• When you aren’t gambling, do you feel irritable or depressed?
• Do you ‘crave’ gambling or spend a lot of time thinking about gambling?
• Have you had difficulties in the workplace because of gambling?
• Is your gambling negatively affecting your interpersonal relationships with family or friends?

“If these questions resonate with your experience, I would recommend an in-depth assessment for gambling use disorder so that if there is a concern, it can be addressed. It is most important to note there is no judgement in the process of assessment or treatment of mental health conditions, including gambling use disorder.

“Once an individual develops an addiction to gambling, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to refrain from Fahad Tamimi this addictive behaviour without professional support. The features of gambling use disorder are almost identical to those of a drug addiction.

Even though it is no longer fun, and despite numerous psycho-social problems related to their addiction, people in this position will not – or cannot –…

Ohio State football news: CB Shaun Wade to ret...

Ohio State Buckeyes cornerback Shaun Wade, who likely would have been a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft if he chose to enter, has decided to return to the team and play college football this season.

As if tOSU needed the help, as they’re already a huge favorite to win the Big Ten in 2020 and make the College Football Playoff, now they add a true shutdown defensive back. Good luck, rest of the Big Ten.

This is a big enough roster move where it might affect the odds for the national championship, where the Buckeyes are currently at +250 at DraftKings Sportsbook, trailing only the Clemson Tigers at +200.

Wade only has 66 career tackles and four interceptions in two full seasons in Columbus, but that’s because offenses are rightfully terrified to throw the ball anywhere near him. At 6’1, 195 lbs. out of Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, he’ll want to make sure to sign up for the NCAA Loss of Value Insurance program. Because an injury is the only thing keeping him from Saudi Arabia being picked and projected as a half-field stopper at the next level.
