When that happens, law enforcement agencies very rarely get involved. Often, it’s tournament organizers, commissioning bodies, and Valve, that take care of this, banning involved players from competing professionally.
With that said, match-fixing in Counter-Strike has become so bad that local enforcement is stepping in. In fact, it’s so prevalent in North America that the FBI is lending a hand to try and investigate the match-fixing incidents.”
