Pro-capper/Western Union Sportsbook scam hits again
The con artists, previously behind CypressSportsbook (SBR rating F-), CreditSportsbook (SBR rating F-) and LasVegasSportsbookDK (SBR rating F-), are back as SportsbookPayer (SBR rating F-). The scam follows the same course. A tout, this time from NFLfreeWinners.com, establishes a relationship with gamblers before referring his new clients to a sportsbook. The so-called sportsbook is established for the sole purpose of facilitating the con. The tout then promises players betting credit or the ability to invest in syndicate guaranteed plays. Players are eventually asked to Western Union funds to Poland. History suggests SportsbookPayer.com will be off-line shortly and the handicapper phone numbers will soon be disconnected. All of the victims were asked to Western Union their funds to a Yosef Levine in Poland. View past reports on these conmen.
Western Union Sportsbook SCAM claims new victim
Poland-based con artists, previously behind CypressSportsbook (SBR rating F-) and CreditSportsbook (SBR rating F-), strike again as LasVegasSportsbookDK. The con follows the same course. A tout establishes a relationship with a gambler before referring the player to a sportsbook where he is promised a line of credit after an initial investment. The player is then asked to Western Union funds to Poland. History suggest LasVegasSportsbookDK.com will be off-line shortly and the handicapper phone numbers will soon be disconnected.
SBR Bill Dozer reports:
CypressSportsbook scammers back in business as CreditSportsbook(SBR rating F-). The scam is initiated when a sports tout recommends the player invest in a credit line at a specific online sportsbook. The bettor is promised a large line of betting credit if he will make an initial investment. Once the player has sent money the scammers bill the player for additional “fees” and new “administrative costs” until the player has finally had enough and refuses to send additional funds. As was the case with Cypress Sportsbook, the players have sent funds via Western Union to a Yosef Levine. Recipient names also included Eva Rowinska; both were collected in Poland. Randy Levine was the recipient of a bank wire.
Players should use caution when utilizing Western Union due to its anonymous nature. Read about similar Western Union scams here.
