Controversy involving this normally reputable company arose this week after it was reported that RakeTech were using a URL (barnverket.nu) that is only slightly different to the actual company, Barnverket (barnverket.se) which is a children’s educational website promoting such services and social interaction between children all over Sweden.
This fraudulent URL owned by RakeTech was not just similar in the name, but the content as well with similar articles and images used all over the website that refer to children combined in with real, direct casino content with live links to varying operators in the industry which, of course, are meant to be advertised and available only to those aged 18 or over.
The fraudulent Barnverket website has, as you’d expect, disappeared from the worldwide web and the RakeTech CEO Michael Holmberg has addressed the issue in the media just before its removal, not only indicating at the imminent removal but also that RakeTech had offered the legitimate Barnverket the chance to own the domain so it could never be used falsely again.
