Scam Alert: Bet911 operating as BetUSASports
Bet911 (SBR rating F) has opened a new domain, BetUSASports, attempting to lure in depositors for football season. Bet911 was downgraded to F on May 6th by SBR after its admission that it could not pay players and that the sportsbook would search for a buyer. Even following the public acknowledgement of insolvency, Bet911 continued to update its signup bonus structure hoping to bring in new deposits. BetUSASports has been added to the SBR sportsbook blacklist at F.
Bet911 player continued to place wagers
A Bet911 (SBR rating F) player who was unaware that the sportsbook announced it could no longer pay winners continued to place wagers up until June 22nd. Bet911 accepted the wagers despite its acknowledgment that the sportsbook would close and look for new ownership to pay player balances via an industry bailout. It was recently reported that BetPhoenix (SBR rating B+) took over at least one player’s balance and instituted a 10X rollover as a good faith gesture. Many of Bet911’s players already have accounts at most sportsbooks – this has effected their efforts to peddle their players to a larger sportsbook.

Bet911 announces it is broke and unable to give players their funds
Bet911 (SBR rating F) has announced that their sportsbook is insolvent, and cannot pay winners their balances. Bet911 was the subject of a May 3rd report regarding Moneybookers slow-pay complaints. Moneybookers addressed the report by stating that Bet911 had no money in its merchant account. Bet911 claimed initially on April 29th that fraudulent transactions had taken place from Moneybookers users, and that an internal investigation needed to be completed before payouts could be processed. Today Bet911 retracted that remark by issuing the following statement to players at SBRforum:
Bet911 has been downgraded to F. SBR is aware of at least one sportsbook looking at the possibility of taking over player balances. Bet911 has a higher than average amount of sharp players that make the acquisition undesirable to most potential suiters. Bet911 has been attempting to partner or sell to another sportsbook for at least the past year. Bet911 offered too-good-to-be-true bonuses in conjunction with reduced juice pricing; a very risky model especially for a sportsbook that has to balance its own costs and processing without the help of a white label host. | SBRforum: Bet911 admits to stealing funds

Bet911 Moneybookers complaints
Three Bet911 (SBR rating C) Moneybookers complaints have been received. Player 1 requested a withdrawal of £615 on April 19th and was informed that Bet911 had no funds in Moneybookers despite it being listed as a valid payment option on the Bet911 website. Players 2 and 3 requested Moneybookers payouts on April 23rd & 27th respectively and were informed that there were fraud issues with Moneybookers and that the Bet911 Moneybookers account was allegedly compromised. All players were offered to receive checks instead until Moneybookers access is restored. SBR is investigating the complaints.
Bet911 canceled bet update
Bet911 (SBR rating C-) has decided to honor the players wager from SBR’s March 2nd report. Although Bet911 canceled the bet between Roda JC and Hercales minutes before the game began, after internal review it was realized that the line of +115 was not bad but instead a fair market number which later moved. Bet911 was late in reacting to the market change and has thus decided to credit the player the winnings for the play.
