          In my experience all websites unverified by second website with high reputation (like sport-tipsters or BA) to do stats, they are 95% fake. It is very easy to explain if a website don’t fake, they will always try to have verified stats because that will bring them lot of traffic, those websites than don’t use those kind of services It s because there is a reason behind.

          I would never pay for any service unverified previously.

                http://www.tipsbooker.com and their partners are scammers!

                More scam websites:

                http://www.teamded.com - thai swindlers.
                their "top partners" are swindlers too.

                http://www.fixedhandicap.com
                http://www.fix-tips.com
                http://www.uncleming.com
                http://www.secretpick.net

                I think that paid pick sites are 95% scam! Money loss guarantee.

                  despicable advice

                  No 1 and 4 are good advice - the other three have serious privacy issues.

                  I run a football tipping service at www.footbet.net. I am not trying to hide - google "Sean Smith Soccernet" and you will find a number of articles to prove my credentials. But there is no way i am giving out my address and telephone number - which are both non-business because i run my tipping service as a small enterprise alongside my regular post as a financial journalist at the Financial Times in London.

                  Which brings me to 3: I run extensive email support and feel no need to speak to people on the phone via address etc... I have had no complaints and my subscribers are very happy with the results without me having to go into a whole legal rigmarole of signing the Data Protection Act.

                  And, as far as 5 is concerned: In what crazy, twisted world full of Nigerian scammers and crazy Asian bet scammers (and I do applaud any stance against these evil betting scammers, don't get me wrong) do you think I am going to hand over a bank account number (business or personal) to anyone. That advice is misleading and downright dangerous.

                  Take it back.

                  I take umbrage with this list. Although some points are excellent others are impractical and verging on the ludicrous.


                  1. The website is very simple and straightforward, does not provide any other content service. solely paid tips.

                  2. The site does not provide sufficient contact details. such as a valid phone number, address ..

                  3. Most of the time, i have seen and heard, a scam site only provide email support, nothing else.

                  4. When you do a whois lookup on their domain http://www.networksolutions.com/whois/index.jsp , their contact details are HIDDEN. protected privacy etc. Again, why are they afraid to reveal their identity if they are doing a legitimate business?

                  5.1 They do not have a business or company bank account.

                  Get them to provide you their:
                  - Bank Name
                  - Beneficary Name
                  - Bank Account Type
                  - Bank Account Number

                  5.2 From the Beneficary Name and Bank Account Type, you will be able to tell if it is a personal savings account or a true company bank account.


                  If one or several of points above are true for the site in question, it is most likely a SCAM site.

                    A big factor in this which I don't think anyone's mentioned yet is access to results. results should be easily accessible BEFORE payment. If they are not, they probaly(not all the time) have something to hide. A lot of scam sites will have no access to results whatsoever.

                      This could go under betting strategy/records if it was not a SCAM.

                      Check out the original presentation of this scammer, and then you have the explanation about him in the URL below.

                      Hope nobody already got caught up on this crap.

                              Anybody heard about these scammers?

                              http://www.8bet.com/

                              They're stealing every pick from 365tip and copy-pasting it on their site without permission. The funny thing is the text can't be copied from our site so they're doing print screen and then paste onto their crooked page.

                              If anybody knows the owner of that scam, please let me know.
