As reported by the Naples Daily News: "Three Lee County men pleaded
guilty in U.S. District Court in Fort Myers on Tuesday in what federal
prosecutors are calling the largest illegal sports gambling ring in
Lee County’s history.
"They said they could provide inside information on the outcome of
sporting events and, for a fee, would recommend which teams to bet on.
"Joseph A. DiLorenzo, 43, of Estero; William J. Gebig, 32, of
Estero; and Daniel Thomas Biancullo, 41, of Fort Myers, pleaded guilty
to conspiracy to transmit wagering information.
DiLorenzo, Gebig, and Biancullo were charged with conspiracy to
transmit wagering information by interstate and foreign wire and to
operate an illegal gambling enterprise. The men who, the U.S.
Attorney’s Office said, worked for Player’s Edge Inc. and National
Sports Consultants Inc. in Fort Myers are accused of advertising for
and receiving money for gambling advice and referring clients to
specific offshore gambling casinos that then provided money back to
Player’s Edge and National Sports Consultants.
