BetCSI continues to lure players with 40% bonus and shady tactics of misrepresentation. SBR believes it's important for players to be aware of this seemingly scam operation, as they are cold-calling bettors. Read the testimonial from a player, who was offered this promotion:
"I have been trying to get my money for about 3+ weeks, and all I get is a song and dance... The main guy is named Roy Rameriz and I sent them $1500 and got a $600 bonus, I turned the account over the required 6 times and got my balance up to over $3,000. Just for the heck of it I requested $1,000 to see if in fact they do pay out. Much to my dismay, I have not received a penny and since have requested my whole $3,200 to be sent to me..."
