The FBI is investigating Counter-Strike: Global Offensive cheating

The FBI is reportedly investigating cheating in professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches in North America.

As spotted by Kotaku, the commissioner of the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), Ian Smith, said the organisation was working alongside the FBI on an ongoing investigation into “a relatively small but significant group of players over a long period of time, organising match fixing in North American MDL”.

“[It’s] what I would describe as classic match-fixing – players being bribed by outside betting syndicates in order to fix matches, rather than players just doing it off their own bat opportunistically. It’s been going on for longer, [and] it’s much more organised,” Smith told YouTuber slash32.
