    They have to pay a few people to stop players from panicking. Pay a few, try and collect as many deposits as possible(like attracting new customers with a free bet) and hopefully your new deposits and losses can get the company back on it's feet. The age old way to keep a fledgling sportsbook from going under. To bad it rarely works. They're scamming scum but I hope I'm one of the lucky ones that gets paid but I doubt it because I cursed them up and down for the last 8 days to anyone that would listen.

    I too have been waiting since february for a payment. I find it pretty frustrating/discouraging that people who withdrew after me have supposedly gotten paid.

    For the claims of received payments from newer posts to this thread, i really take it w/ a grain of salt. It seems like most of those like TRUN, stiffandburned, etc. who have been on this thread from the beginning and requested withdrawals long before the rest of you, haven't been paid. That makes me worry.

    If you guys look back through the weeks and weeks of this thread, its funny how, everyweek there are a handful of people who say "be patient, wait one more week". Its been about 7 or 8 weeks now. Honestly, how much longer are we supposed to wait. I want to stay patient but slowly i'm getting impatient. Some of you will scream "well you have to stay patient, there is nothing else you can do". I'm sorry to say you guys are wrong. There is plenty many of us can do. Chargebacks are a last resort, and i'd really hate to deal w/ that nightmare, but for those who have already done it, i can't blame them for refusing to blindlessly keep believing this company who has lied to us for almost 2 months now.

    Alright guys ive been reading these forums for a while. I have been waiting for my money from sportsbook.com for two months now. I agree completely with rob999. Here is my advice to you to get your money. I have heard if from many people who have went through this with other books. IF YOU WANT YOUR MONEY GET YOUR MONEY. now i know were all in a bad spot here and in reality we will probably never get are money but my advice to you is 1. call every day. 2. hang up and call again dont stay on the line with one person they are paid to keep you on the line. I cant stress this enough hang up and call again it drives them crazy. 3. dont be proffesional they werent professional with us were they??? SO swear as much as you can and let your voice be heard then and only then will they take the time to get you off your back. NEVER GIVE UP. just keep callling every day and keep swearing and yelling at everyone on the other line. Remember hang up and call again. Im new to this forum and am in the same boat with all you guys....to get your money post about how much of a scam this company is and do it as much as you can. IF you hassle them enough then and only then will you get your money i guarantee it. Also many of the people on here reporting getting money R BOTS!! if you guys havent noticed haha.

    Did you guys see their poker promotion??? 100% match up to $600.00??? Hahaha...i think they're desperate for deposits now. I don't know if you guys remember my post of the sportsbook guy calling me asking why i haven't deposited money yet, but i wish he'd call me again. This was a solid 3 or 4 weeks ago and back then he told me "all our problems are fixed, you can go ahead and make deposits again"...riiiiiiiight.

    if the site goes down tomorrow then i'd be happy i did the charge back tonight...at least i feel i am somewhat responsible to bring those SOBs down. people should get the names of the officers at sportsbook.com, so if they ever step in United States soil...even for a plan transfer, the FBI will arrest their ass...like what happened to Neteller and Betonsports poeple. To be fair, i think Neteller is a legitimate company.

    how does frustrating the cs reps getting your money back. they're getting paid for putting up with your shit. you should be angry at the management...there is no point torturing the cs people. i think you should get a list of names of the management and hopefully figure out where are they all located and hand over that list to the FBI or the attorney general. if those bastards ever land on american soil, the feds will be waiting for them. let them forever be banned from the states for all the shit they put us through

    i think the credit card people knows what is up

    when i called up the credit card people and told them about the fraud charges, they said okay right-a-way. it seems like i am not the first one who did ********** on my credit card company...well, all signs are pointing to trouble. my senses are telling me, RUN!

    but i think sb might hold out until the NBA playoff though...it is only less than 5 days way...stupid ticker...it irrirates me everytime i look at that ****ing site. hope enough suckers will deposite so some of you will get some money back.

    I am offering wager lines for sportsbook.com shutdown date. Before or after may 15?

    can't sleep

    i am still all pissed off from sb.com i am glad i found this forum...it is like a support group for all of us who are getting screwed by sb.com

    i am just venting my frustration with them...especailly my last conversation with the cs poeple. i am not sure if the customer service people were ****ing with me from all the angry people want their back back or they're just bunch of ****ing lying bastards. they told me now that based on the feedback, the wire time is 14-16 days. ...based on the feedback. if they use the feedback, why the **** they even tell us 7-10 days, then 10-15 days...or even 3 weeks.

    what freaks me out the most is that when the cs people give me someone else's answers. i think i was asking them about address change, they replied that all the bank wires are delayed and it'll take longer to process. wtf??? doesn't that seem odd to you guys that they use the delay tactic for every question you ask. well, i am moving all my money to 5dimes. at least it is ranked pretty high on this site.

    read this

    3. Outright SCAM Sportsbooks - usually open up right around football season. This type of scam operation is know as the deposit-only sportsbook because they do whatever it takes to get you to deposit your money with no intention of ever making pay-outs. The easiest way to spot a fake is to look for an address or phone number. If the site lists a phone number, call it and ask for their address. If they do not readily give you a valid address, consider them suspect and do further research before making a deposit. These rogue operations often use large bonuses, spam email and other shady tactics to lure players.

    now i said earlier, cs people refuse to give me their address in costa rica...now i know why

    this is an exerpt from http://www.sportsbookreview.com/SCAM+Alert/default.aspx

    now i know why there is a ticking clock counting down to nba playoff...i think the website will go offline before it reaches the nba playoff

    I won $80 on Sportsbook.com at the casino. Sportsbook said they would send me a check after I won. Five business days passed, and I still didnt recieve a check. They said it would have gotten to me within five business days.

    I later talked to a customer representative and they said It would be mailed to me next week. Next week passed and still no check.

    I called again and they said that the check is being processed and that it would me mailed the following Monday.

    They keep telling me its going to be mailed and on their website it says that it takes only 7-10 business days to recieve the check and NOW they are saying that its going to be sent and it could take thirty days.

    They lied, and are ripping customers off becasue they probaly dont have sufficient funds to pay their winners.

    These people are ridiculous and they need to stop lying.
