SportsbettingOnline addresses payout complaint

SBR has asked the player to confirm receiving payment.

Yup I agree I would never post up with a site that has a D rating and unresolved payout issues......thanks all 4 the feedback
Sportsbook Review has pressed SportsbettingOnline for updates on two player complaints; one of the complaints has been pending since the summer of 2014. A player reported that his $8,200 balance was in limbo and that he was locked out of his betting account.
SportsbettingOnline has not provided much information to SBR or the player, and has recently stated that only a specific account manager is authorized to comment on the complaint, that manager has yet to comment to SBR.
The second complaint involves a player who deposited $1,000 to an impostor posing as a SportsbettingOnline employee. The player believes that the sportsbook is liable for his mistake because he was only contacted after he requested bank wire instructions through the sportsbook website. He believes that there was a security breach that caused him to be targeted.
