Betfair are cunts

Recommended Posts

I seen last night they had a 25% back promotion up to 250 pounds for losing bets.

I was gonna use skybet until I seen the above. I usually bet reasonably high stakes so the 25% was good insurance.

Anyway I deposited and bet £1,000 on Rangers -1 Vs Partick. My account was immediately suspended (can't withdraw or deposit) and they wanted a passport copy, photo of the bank card I deposited with and a photo of a bank statement with my UK address. I asked them to just void my bet and refund me as I didn't want to give them these personal documents.  They refused and said they would keep the money unless I provided all of this. So I did... They said they would review and come back to me.

So... I logged in just now and they have closed my account so I can't login and god knows where the £2,625 that was there after the Rangers game has disappeared to.  I have emailed them and they have said they will respond within 72 hours.  Done some googling and seems they done this to others before too.

Summary - fuck Betfair.

Aye so basically they have robbed me. For "business reasons" they have closed my account.  What an absolute bunch of fucking clowns.  They wouldn't even void the bet when I asked so you can guarantee they would have kept the £1k if Rangers had lost. Clowns.

Is there any reason they're doing that other than just to save 1600? 

Have you breached absolute any rule at all?

No rules breached. They are just being utter cunts.  Their attitude has made me want to take it further tbh. Gonna go down IBAS route tomorrow. Here's the latest of the conversation.

Are you still overseas, like your RM location says mate?

I'm based in multiple countries, at the time I was in the UK of course as my IP when registering will back up.

Regardless, they have clearly stated my documents were the problem.

Was just wondering if some of your settings might have reported a non-UK IP to them at some point.
