Identity TheftCredit Card Chargeback Fraudiovation, the global digital reputation authority, has today officially received a service provider license from the Nevada Gaming Commission. Following a recommendation for approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board, a unanimous decision by the Nevada Gaming Commission means iovation is certified to provide new location assurance services to online gambling companies operating in the State of Nevada.
