as long as there is internet gambling, without COMPLETE and proper checks, balances and regulations, there will continue to be corruption and scams in the biz.
and even if all internet poker sites had proper regulations, you still have a chance of corruptions and unsavory business practice because of 1 primary thing in human existence .
WHEN YOU MIX HUMANS AND MONEY TOGETHER, YOU ALWAYS END UP WITH GREED, CORRUPTIONS AND PEOPLE WANTING TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO CHEAT A SYSTEM TO GET MORE MONEY OUT OF IT.
This is human nature...and we see it in politics, religions, sports betting, poker, etc...etc..
