    DJEsports 55k Scam - do not use this cryptobook

    I got scammed 55k (1.2btc) by DJEsports, the betting site that's being highly promoted by a lot of esports personalities like Thorin, Montecristo, Launders, etc.

    Short story is pretty much as follows:
    - Sign up in June 2021, a few small issues for the first few months but withdrew 0.9 btc with no real problem.

    - Beginning of October 2021 I have 1.2btc on my account after the 0.9 withdrawal and I try to withdraw 0.5btc more, they reject my withdrawal for 0.5btc. They tell me it's because of some system that's not in their ToS and not guidelined anywhere on their site or discord. I get tons of misinformation regarding this from their Support team/moderators but they assure me I will be able to withdraw my funds when I bet enough on the major.

    - 19th October 2021, I am unable to login on their website, I contact their support team and they tell me it's a tech error on the site, I have this issue until the 22nd of October when I am able to sign in for about 3 hours. On the same day I get locked back out of my account for good and they finally responded to me on the 24th of October telling me to check my email. The email says that my account has been banned for 'not betting enough on tier1 games' and I'm only entitled to $16k (0.26btc) of the 1.2btc on my account, this is shown at the beginning of the video.

    On the 22nd of October (3 days after I was unable to sign in and about 2+ weeks since I placed a bet on their site) they finally added some guidelines in their discord, but not their ToS. This is a desperate attempt to cover their backs and justify what they are doing.

    (40:00 for TLDR, video is boring af, was mainly for their sponors to see but I have no way to push it to them)

    I originally posted this over on HLTV, but someone dm'd me over there and said to also post it here to warn people. They have been spending tons on big name sponsorships in the esports space to build their reputation but have decided to penetrate off every winning user at the same time and there's a lot of complaints in their discord and on twitter.

    Interesting. Never heard of this site before.

    No company name, no valid license, they even mistyped "Philippines" in their license note in the footer:

    The licensor's "List of Service Providers and Game offerings" does not contain a site with this name: https://www.pagcor.ph/regulatory/pdf...gs-Updated.pdf

    I asked their live chat if they could show me a proof of their license but, no surprise, they couldn't.

    They are literally saying their company name is "DJ Esports". So probably they do not even have a registered company.

    Their "ToS" are hidden in the registry mask and frankly a complete joke:

    "Rules and RegulationsDetails >The following general rules apply to all events and odd/bet types and are binding to all transactions. Where applicable, the provisions and definitions set forth in the Terms and Conditions published on the Website shall apply to these Rules and Regulations.

    -> Probably a 100% illegal online gambling site with no business or gambling license registered.
