Sportsbook.com player: Are you not accepting Moneybookers deposits ? If you are can you clarify what the problem is and where on your website it states this. thanks.
Kristen Black: We are accepting moneybookers ,is just that the processor is experiencing a delay,i dont have the details as i said management is taking care of that.
Sportsbook.com player: Can you provide me with a management contact then please. I am disappointed that I am having to contact you to find this out. No e-mail to tell me of a delay, no reply to 3 e-mails I have sent and no message on the website letting your customers know about this. very poor in my opinion.
Kristen Black: Im sorry about this,one moment please
Sportsbook.com player: thanks
Kristen Black: You're very welcome.
info: Please wait while I transfer the chat to 'Edwin Morris'.
info: Hello, my name is Edwin Morris. I'll be assisting you today.
Sportsbook.com player: Hi Edwin. Do you have chat so far ?

Edwin Morris: Hello, I see you've already been chatting. Please give me a moment to review the previous chat session and pick up from where you left off.
Sportsbook.com player: ok thanks
Edwin Morris: You're very welcome.
Edwin Morris: Unfortunately, {name redacted}, there is a delay in processing your withdrawal.
Edwin Morris: We will be contacting you as soon as we have an update on this.
Edwin Morris: Our apologies for this matter.
Sportsbook.com player: As I stated previously I find it disappointing that I have to contact you to finds this out, with 3 e-mails sent not replied to. Are there delays on all pay out methods ?
Edwin Morris: I fully understand your point on that.
Edwin Morris: This is a delay on our E-wallet withdrawals only.
Sportsbook.com player: Can you confirm how long there has been a problem ? What is problem ? Thanks
Edwin Morris: This has been going around for about three weeks, unfortunately, same time you requested your withdrawal. It is merely a delay in processing and out withdrawals crew is looking into it to determine the direct cause.
Sportsbook.com player: There has been a problem for 3 weeks - is there a message on your website informing your e-wallet customers that at present you can deposit instantly but there will be a delay if you wish to withdraw ?
Edwin Morris: There is not, no. Your feedback on the matter is appreciated though.
Sportsbook.com player: Does that mean there will be one added now ?
Edwin Morris: Not necessarily. It means we do appreciate your feedback on it and we will consider it.
Sportsbook.com player: OK. What is timescale for resolving it ? 3 weekes seems a very long time already.
Edwin Morris: Definitely understood. Unfortunately, I do not have a specific timeframe I can offer as of yet.
Sportsbook.com player: Is there anything else I can do now or can you pass me further up the ladder. To be honest all I have learned is that there is a problem and no idea when it will be resolved ?
Edwin Morris: Unfortunately, this is the answer we currently have to give to you as a customer.
Edwin Morris: At this time we will kindly ask of you to wait on an update.
Edwin Morris: We will definitely have one and let you know as soon as we do.
info: Your chat transcript will be sent to {address redacted} at the end of your chat.
Sportsbook.com player: ok thanks anyway. I may be wrong but this has all the signs of a Sportsbokk in trouble. I hope I am wrong.
Edwin Morris: Positively answering that, that particular belief is.
Edwin Morris: It is a delay, yes. It is just that though.
Edwin Morris: We will contact you as soon as we have an update.
