CDDN’s online gambling clients protected from fraud

Last week there appeared on’s website the disturbing report that minors could make payments – and could therefore bet – on the websites of legal online gambling companies. With four out of the ten parties investigated, players could in some cases make payments from another bank account.

None of these cases involved companies that use CDDN’s services. According to CDDN co-founder Martijn de Boer, this shows that“the electronic Know Your Customer (eKYC) servicesthat we have implemented with our clients are doing their job.” With this service, online gambling companies can check and identify clients totally automatically. De Boer: “Our KYC process consists of verifying people via official personal documents. Because personal documents are physical, this process normally takes a few days. VerifyMe, our specially developed tool, does this in a few minutes.”

With VerifyMe it is also possible to check that a client is not listed in CRUKS (Central Register for Exclusion from Gambling). And a check also takes place immediately behind the scenes that the person who wants to open an account is not on a sanction or PEP list, in which event he would not be able to play unless subject to increased vigilance.
