Beware of SBR Impostors & email scams

11.19.2014

Scammers pretending to represent SportsbookReview.com are emailing bitcoin betting sites seeking payment to a Gmail address in exchange for advertising. SBR staff only send email from official @sportsbookreview.com addresses and do not ever ask for payment to review sportsbooks. Similar to the scam reported in April of 2011, the hustlers are setting their sights on marketing departments attempting to pass themselves off as SBR employees. In the most recent scam, a video review was promised in exchange for payment through BTC. Please write help@sportsbookreview.com if you have any concerns over the authenticity of any correspondence with an unknown contact claiming to work for SBR.
