The losses incurred to actor-director Ben Affleck, who has been named as a victim in one of largest poker scandals, has reportedly been exaggerated.

The 40-year-old "Argo" helmer was one of hundreds of players who lost money on a website called 'Ultimate Bet' during their infamous cheating scandal, reported TMZ. One of the owners of the website would play in high stakes games and use the ability to see other players' cards to help him win.

There have been reports from the site's former owner that claimed Affleck lost close to half a million dollars to the site. Although it is reported that Affleck did lose some money back in 2003, since the money was won through cheating, it was refunded.
