    Sportsbetting.com Ripoff...

    I made a deposit on Saturday to Sportsbetting.com. The money has been withdrawn from my bank account, but they never credited my account with them. I have repeatedly called them since then only to have them tell me they'll get back to me in 24-48 hours. Of course I don't hear from them, and when I call back they tell me the same thing. I have also tried emailing them but nothing gets accomplished. This appears to be blatant fraud, so I would suggest that anyone considering depositing money there to go elsewhere. Also if you have any money with them I would pull it. It's a shame that scumbag operations like this exist...

    I'm sure they will straighten this out and get the money into your account. How they take it away after that is whats questionable.

    You said you deposited using your Bank Debit Card. If so,
    just call your bank and tell them it was an Internet charge
    and you didn't receive what you paid for. They'll credit you
    and do a ********** on them. Very simple. If they're doing
    this to other people, it won't be long before they lose their
    Merchant Account.

    And by all means use a good book. There's plenty of A+ ones
    out there.

    I know sportsbetting definitely has problems. Slow customer service, processor problems, ect. But I would say this particular problem sounds like an anomaly to me. I've deposited by card numerous times, been credited instantly all of them, and never had a problem. In fact, aside from the fact that I like their roulette software and that's a draw for me, the main reason I keep playing with them instead of switching to a better rated book is that it's one of the few sites that I'm still able to deposit with a US card with no problem. Not that it's acceptable what happened to you, I just don't think it's blatant theft.

    Well, it's now July 17th and still no money in the account. Any word from them SBR guys? If it's not there by the end of the day I'm filing a dispute with my bank. I'm sorry but it's been more than long enough to have this sorted out on their end. This is downright criminal, whether it was initially an anomaly or not. By now they should have found the problem and credited my account. A word of warning to those of you who want to use this scumbag book....
