I work with a guy who just bought a house and got married within the past year and he's already filing for bankruptcy. He has been going to the Chester casino almost every night after work for the past six months. I couldn't believe it. I knew him as a guy who was good with his money and now he's in debt.

I know my posting on the ill effects of casino gambling too many on this site and other sites are a nuisance, but it stories like this that keeps me posting.

What’s your opinion of my idea for the casinos to send monthly statements and do you think it could have helped your friend.

Here's a few videos on sending monthly statements.

I think it could have helped him. He told me he didn't realize he was losing as much money as he was until it was to late. His wife has now taking control of all the money and now drives him to work and picks him up so he can't make any side trips. He said he went to a counseling program for gambling problems out where he lives in norwood recently at a church he attends.
