    Fortune Magazine-- also posted a 5Dimes story about money laundering

    http://fortune.com/2016/03/15/5dimes-amazon-laundering/

    Are we not allowed to post that now?


    Edit by SBR: Normally discussions involving processing or activity that might be restricted in certain jurisdictions is not permitted, because of the legal implications and the fact that it harms players looking to sports bet regardless of the jurisdiction that they are in. That said, users are rightly curious about the implication of some of the sensational headlines, all starting with a Costa Rican newspaper.

    We can tell you that 5Dimes is still operating as normal in Costa Rica and to date we haven't received a payment complaint. If we were to, we will update the forum as we do with any other book that begins slow-paying.

    Here is our recent article on the issue:

    Per the article---

    The Department of Homeland Security has applied for a seizure order against Amazon Gift Cards associated with 5Dimes.

    It's not even close-- SBR doesn't even try to hide the difference personalities posting behind JJ Gold.

    I'd imagine it is safe.

    But then again, any time you have the United States Department of Homeland Security sniffing around your ass, it can't be a good thing.

    They "Feds" have been trying to get bodog, bovada, pinnacle, & 5dimes for how long?

    calvin ayre was on homeland security's most wanted list. Was he ever caught?

    theyre just now figuring out about AZ?

    The Sites that have been around this long have always been a step ahead. Some of this is fear mongering. When you're on top, people take shots to knock you down.

    I don't think it is fear mongering. It is an actual investigation by DHS. That is some serious shit.

    As for Ayre-- I'm not sure he's ever stepped foot back inside the US since his indictment.

    You want the list of good books that are no longer an option?

    The Greek
    BetJam
    Matchbook
    Pinny

    They have all but shut down W--U and M--G--- limits on those two are down to around 200 bucks at some places.

    Then cash out and don't play there guy. At the end of the day, the climate tomorrow is no different than it was today. Anyone keeping a large balance online now is just asking for it anyway. Until you log on and see that seizure logo its business as usual

    That's the point you're missing.

    Players NEVER see it coming. Never.

    It will happen exactly like that-- balance one day, gone the next. Boards like this existed at one time to discuss books about to close, legal threats to balances, and help any player out there who may be on the fence about depositing into a bad situation.

    I'm not even sure what it is you are objecting to.

    Players should know that the DHS is on 5D's ass. If it helps them, what do you care if we discuss it?

    anyone that keeps high balances anywhere and book goes under it is your fault because your not too bright
    Stop playing the blame game

    People lose everything all the time on bad companies that had hundreds of millions and went bankrupt and your worried about most books that have like 1 million tops of equity on the high side????????

    Liverman do your own research and make good decisions

    Does SBR have any obligation to telling players if a book is about to get boat raced by the Feds? Or is it just the dumb players fault if they lose their cash?

    Yes although they have no clue what books legal issues are and never will and would be very irresponsible to guess and cause panic.

    WE KNOW MORE BY GOOGLE

    SBR has no obligation but the implied message of the "Ratings" system is that they have somehow vetted these books. If I had money at 5Dimes I would take it out.
