TheOffshoreWire.com, an online sports "watch dog," announces the latest warnings on rogue sports books. They are currently available on the site (http://www.theoffshorewire.com)
Keeping players aware of the risks represented by rogue operations is one of the most important tasks of TheOffshoreWire.com. These operations usually edge on punters' unawareness of their past history to induce them to deposit. Rogue operators usually sound very courteous as long as punters lose. Things dramatically change once bettors build a balance and ask for a payout.
Always available managers become permanently unreachable because they are always "in a meeting" or "out for lunch." Courtesy is usually replaced by rudeness. Sometimes these sports books representatives hung up as soon as the player asking for a payout identifies himself.
"A sports book stole $25,000 of my winnings,Â reports a frustrated bettor to TheOffshoreWire.com. The sports book admits to having shorted the player of his winnings but refuses to amend the situation.
"They do not respond to emails or phone calls for the last 5 months or so. I made a payout request through their website about 3 months ago but nothing happened," says another player stiffed by another scam sports book.
