    sportsbook solicitation since joining SBR

    I joined SBR two days ago (mentioned on a post that I am planning to leave sportsbook.com) and since then have been called by new sportsbooks trying to get me to join. I didnt realize this was going to occur and actually a little dissapointed. Not so ironically it has been "A" graded sportsbooks on this site. Did others have this issue?

    Did you leave a number in your profile? I didn't so I don't expect any calls. I did join the betonline august stretch run contest and joined there and got a call, but I didn't mind that.

    Looks like they will do anything for a buck, they sold your information.

    I gave my number and never received 1 call from any book I have never played. I believe your sportsbook.com is the one selling your info not SBR.

    They don't call you because you're too sharp buddy. They don't want your action.

    And the notion that SBR sells poster info to ANY books is absolutely ludicrous and 100% incorrect.

    SBR has never emailed members except with contest pick confirms or given out ANY member information to any party. Period.

    I know other forums give out member info as part of their marketing deals. SBR never has.

    never got a call from any book because of SBR, I agree it was probably another book or tout service if you use them etc that sold your info

    I know that to be true cause I never got any calls as stated before. I respect SBR for that. Books do sell your info, that I know. Betus does.

    Sir,

    In an effort to expedite the investigation, during your solicitation call, was the phrase "A+ book, Must have out, tell 'em Ritchie sent ya" quoted to you over the phone? If yes, we have a strong lead to the leak, if no, we will have to dig a little deeper.

    I dont think it was SBR either.

    I dont even remember giving my number when I signed up.

    BUt how would they get my number and know I was looking to join another site? And I dont use my name on this forum. That is my biggest question. If I dont use my name how did they get that information. IT is just strange.

    El Sid, it was most likely a coincidence.

    EL SID,

    Please accept my sympathy for your suffering as we SBR posters suffer constant solicitation everyday from Richkas touting creditwagering and their non-existent A+ plus rating without SBR management doing anything about it.
