TheOffshoreWire.com receives frightening complaints from punters reporting the disappearance of large sums from different companies.

After checking my balance on the 7th, I processed a withdrawal in the amount of 4,870, which should have left me $25,953. Later that day, I placed wagers and lost, according to my notes, $770. This should have left with a balance of $25,183. When I logged into my account on Tuesday I noticed my balance was only $3500

Winning on sports is already a challenge and for some punters guessing the right team only represent the beginning of a nightmare.

“After checking my balance on the 7th, I processed a withdrawal in the amount of 4,870, which should have left me $25,953. Later that day, I placed wagers and lost, according to my notes, $770. This should have left with a balance of $25,183. When I logged into my account on Tuesday I noticed my balance was only $3500,” a desperate bettor reported to TheOffshoreWire.com.

His and other similar horror stories are described in TheOffshoreWire.com latest report on Sportsbook’s security flaws.

The unfortunate punter appears to be one of the many victims of Sportsbook’s lack of security.

TheOffshoreWire.com sources in Costa Rica, the Jurisdiction that hosts the vast majority of online gaming operators, say that it’s rather common to find sports books databases on sale on the black market.

Underpaid clerks and disgruntled managers seem to have easy and uncontrolled access to information that should be otherwise kept secure.

TheOffshoreWire.com is cracking down on unscrupulous operators that don’t provide punters sensitive data an acceptable level of protection by helping punters recover their stolen money and exposing those companies that should be avoided by all means.
