He told Oddsmaker that if his account was not closed he would cause financial trouble for them. It was a bluff he claims – one that worked.
Days later Oddsmaker.ag closed his account and all was over so he thought. One week later head of fraud Tony Massina, the heel at the center of the well-known $45,000 confiscation, threatened him with legal action. As a result of the player's words Oddsmaker preemptively returned his deposits.
The player confirmed that $1,731.55 posted to his account.
An argument ensued and the player offered to return the funds but Oddsmaker insisted he send them $3,420 – a larger number which was never explained, perhaps as a result of lost winnings off deposited funds.
