SBR Scam alert on SportsbookAction24
Scam Alert: Poland-based scammers launch new deposit-only “sportsbook” SportsbookAction24. Seven days after the group’s (labeled as Cypress in the SBR rating guide) previous scam site ExecutiveSportsbookdr went off-line, players have asked about SBA24. The book is online solely to accept Western Union deposits, likely sent to Poland. The website will disappear in a matter of months with the victims’ funds.
ExecutiveSportsbookdr (SBR rating F-) closes with player’s $27,900 balance.
The book attracted depositors by working with touts who would build a relationship with the player and then recommend the deposit-only sportsbook. Bettors can expect an increase in scam attempts that utilize Western Union now that Neteller and Citadel are no longer servicing U.S. bettors. Thieves behind Executive Sportsbookdr are likely already preparing to rob bettors under a new sportsbook front.

I won about 27,900 usd dollars and I still haven’t receive it yet. They are say that is alot of money and that western union is having problems sending it.
SCAM Alert: ExecutiveSportsbookdr (SBR rating F-)
The scam was first documented operating through CypressSportsbook.com. The con artists have opened many sportsbook sites since to perpetuate the scam. Players are brought in through tout sites and are made to feel like they are getting a special deal for large VIP players. The sportsbook then sucks the player for all it can before he or she begins asking for the funds back. The group is known to request the bettor to send Western Union transfers to Poland. Below is an email sent to the player by Executive:
