    Sports Interaction slow pay

    After requesting a withdrawal from my account 2 weeks ago my withdrawal was processed and in my bank account in 4 days with no ID verification required, shortly afterwards my wagering limits were slashed to a max wager amount of $22.

    On January 14th I requested a second withdrawal and received an e-mail stating that my withdrawal request could not be processed until I provided a copy of my ID, recent bill, and banking statement. This process can take up to 5 business days so I sent documentation first thing monday morning. I have since contacted SIA on several occasions requesting that they either prioritize my ID verification or reinstate my betting limits to a level where my account could be usable again to which they responded that there was nothing that they could do.

    Although I do understand that many books require ID verification for CC depositors I know that most do not require this for ** depositors and SIA clearly did not require this for my first withdrawal request. This leads me to believe that their sudden requirement for my identification and their inability to prioritize my request is nothing more than a slow pay tactic. My account has been rendered useless due to a business decision on their end and my funds are being tied up in a place where they are useless due to no fault of my own.

    I dug up this thread the other day where 2 other well known members of SBR have previously reported the exact same slow pay tactic.

    http://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/sportsbook...ia-c-book.html

    With the recent addition of SIA to the sponsor bar at the top of the page here I just felt that I would share this experience with the community here in players talk. As of right now my verification is still pending but they are clearly taking their sweet time which I would be a little more understanding of if my account were still usable but since it is not due to buisness decisions on their end I feel that that my withdrawal should have been taken care of promptly.

    I will continue to update the status of this withdrawal.

    they basically give you more than 10 000 $ on average for free, but you cant wait 1-2 weeks for your withdrawal to be processed ?

    Thanks for posting. I agree, if books want to dick around about paying people, then you should advertise the stunts that they pull. When they start losing people depositing at their books they'll slowly realize that they can't fuk with peoples money.

    You are joking Right?

    If I was still able to use their book I would have no problem if it took them 1-2 weeks to send me my funds, but if their business decision is to only allow a player to bet 10% of their advertised betting limits than the professional thing to do is to pay that player what you owe them and let them move on. Especially when prior withdrawals were processed in 1 day with no hassels, this just becomes childish.

    It is not the money that concerns me right this minute it is their actions. As a matter of fact I am sure that me posting this will probably delay my payment even further but since they are an SBR sponsor now I feel that issues like this should be out in the open.

    the problem is that the management has made the decison to limit/close your account .
    If your account is closed or limited sia always requests documents to verify your identity, which takes more than just one or two days.
    If sia wouldnt ask for ids, utility bills their business would be gone within a few months because people would make multiple accounts.
    It doesnt have anything to do with slow paying, it is just a management decision to prevent fraud.
    If they limited you to 22 dollars or closed your account you probably made a few thousand off them without much effort and you make a thread complaining about being slow payed, although you will get your money within 1-2 weeks

    Why does it take more than 1 or 2 days? Do they physically walk each document to to the bank or utility company? I've had documents (greek/bookmaker) verified within a couple hours.

    whenever a book has asked me to send them my documents it always took at least 4 days,
    i have no idea how long thegreek or bookmaker need to verify the documents but if they really only need a few hours, they are certainly an exception compared to all the other books.

    It does not take any more than a few hours tops to verify 3 documents

    No C rated book or better takes more than 2 days to do this and if a player is no longer able to bet with the balance he has due to the books "business decision" this matter should be attended to promptly.

    I wouldn't necessarily say they are a trash book as of yet, but right now what I am seeing is a very unprofessional book my balance was reduced to betting amounts that I have no interest in betting due to a decision on the books part the least they can do is make my document verification a priority.

    This is just a childish slow pay and the thread I linked in the OP shows that they have a history of doing this. SIA is being a very unprofessional book and taking advantage of the lack of regulation in this industry.

    Sia is one of the most horrendous sites I've ever used. I'm surprised the rating is a B when they lie to everyone and slowpay almost everyone.

    I wouldn't worry as i went threw the same verification process sucks but thats what they do and it is stated in there info that it takes 5-7 business days and they make sure to let it run the full time, u cant do anything because thats what is stated.
    If they limit you thats also nothing you can do as books do that when you win to much to them.
    I've noticed from december until now there has been a wide variety of books taking longer to pay for reasons that i dont even know, so keep your head up and im pretty sure u will get paid anytime now.

    The sad thing is that up until now I liked a lot of things about sports interaction and even though my limits were cut I would still have recommended them as a good book.

    I wasn't born yesterday and I can tell when someone is deliberately slow paying me, my money from my first withdrawal request was in my bank account in 3-4 days and here I am now 6 days after my second withdrawal and I still have not received ID verification and I still have to wait for the withdrawal to be processed once that is done. Funny how no ID verification was required for my first payout.

    Fukkin sore losers

    I never heard that they dont ask for id upon withdraw, but you will receive an email when they update the info, from there the wire will bet there in 2days.

    I can respect a book taking 5 days to verify documents I have seen this before. My big problem with this situation is my account is useless due to their decision to limit my wager amounts, no big deal there I can respect that decision but do what ever is necessary to ensure that my money is delivered to me promptly.
