Sportsbook scam alert: 105Vig player writes in

Share with:

A 105Vig (SBR rating D-) player writes in. The player tells SBR that he signed up at the mysterious new sportsbook for their $100 free bet promotion, which he lost. 105Vig offered the player a $500 line of credit - the player accepted and increased his balance to $1,654.11. The player asked for a withdrawal on Tuesday, November 8th. On Wednesday November 9th 105Vig contacted the player and stated while manager "Jerry" was not in the office, the representative believed that the player should not be paid due to making negative posts on SBRforum about the company.

On November 8th, 2011, SBR reported that 105Vig was peddling no-deposit bonuses and credit lines. uses an unencrypted login, offers no customer support email address or phone number, and uses HTML to display its sportsbook lines - not industry-grade betting software. SBRforum members reported that the unheard of website offered a $500 credit line if the no-deposit bonus was lost. 105Vig is currently on the SBR sportsbooks blacklist. SBR advises users to avoid the anonymous outfit.


105Vig player: I signed up with the website for a $100 FP, which lost. I was then offered a $500 line of credit which I accepted. The first week, I ran my account to $1,654.11 (profit of $1,154.11) and I requested a payout on Tuesday (11/8). I was emailed back by "Jerry" and was told that I would be contacted on Wednesday (11/9) about making a payment. Jerry asked for my mailing address on Tuesday, but I have no heard anything back from him since then. After many emails on Wednesday (11/9) and Thursday (11/10), I was finally given a response by someone else at the company. They had no information for me regarding my payout and said that Jerry was not around. In addition to this, they commented on a post I made on SBR in a thread entitled "" in the Sportsbook/Industry Subforum. This person said "I don't think Jerry should pay you" because I made a critical comment in the thread about the communication and non-payment from the 105vig. I have all emails saved from both days with Jerry and the no-named representative. Please feel free to email me and I can forward all of these emails to you. Thank you.
