Trade Commissioner : We refer to your e-mail of 17 April 2008 and fear that you have fallen victim to a website (http://www.europlay.at) which has been set up with fraudulent intention. We have made our own investigations and ascertained the following facts:
A similar website http://www.europlay2000.net already exists and is run by the Austrian company Unternehmensgruppe Lindenau using the trade name Europlay Sportwettcafes. They are located at Andritzer Reichsstrasse 56, A-8045 Graz, Tel. 0043 316 697869, Fax: 0043 316 697869-12, email: email@example.com, and are not connected in any way with Europlay International.
With regard to Europlay International in Austria we could not trace a company by this name. The telephone number 0043 3182 62230 is not a Graz telephone number. At the address Münzgrabenstrasse 86, A-8010 Graz, used to be a company by the name of BT-Montage Schlosserei, Maschinen- u. Rohrleitungsbau GmbH which has moved to Salzburg and is now insolvent. What business is currently located at this address, we do not know. We have passed your e-mail to the regional Chamber of Commerce in Graz. We are sorry that we are unable to give you a more favourable reply.

Player: "I am having problems with europlay.at which I hope you might be able to help with. I asked for a payout of 1550 euros in late January this year and was asked to send identification documents (passport and credit card used to deposit funds). I did this on Jan 29th and received a reply on Feb 2nd acknowledging receipt of these and asking for bank details (bank name,IBAN and swfit code, account number and name of account holder). I sent these off and had an email on February 12th acknowledging this information and promising transfer of the funds within 60 days. The funds had not been transferred on April 13th so I emailed asking for an update. This email was ignored. However my account balance is now 0 euros and has been since at least Monday. I checked my bank balance online today and no money has been transferred."
