I am shocked and disgusted - got the following e-mail this morning:
Now I have seen documentaries and heard of people who consistently win having there accounts closed or stakes limited (which I also feel is unfair) but I do not fall into that category. In fact I keep records and so far I have credited £350 to my Betfair Sportsbook a/c and my last 3 bets each for £10 lost making my balance there £70 currently - so down £280 total with them recreational betting since I opened my a/c in July 2014.
There for I can’t see how I am any kind of threat nor done anything to warrant this!
Think the punters should have better protection from the government - I think it should be illegal to turn business away - if you offer a price then any ones money should be good - you can adjust the price if your exposure is to great etc., sure - after all they in business to make money but limiting peoples stakes I think is fundamentally wrong!
The sports books are happy to take £1000’s of losers (like myself) but not even begrudgingly pay winners anything closing there a/c’s. This is wrong and gamblers collectively need to stand up against this!
