Hello. My name is Michael.
I can help you with your question.
Are you referring to the Sports Book?
If so, they are licensed in Costa Rica
Sports bookmaker do you mean?
Yes, i understand they are licenced in Costa Rica
Sports Book = bookmaker
Do they pay out?
They have a record of paying out, yes.
What about Marlin Reynolds?
But let me check to make sure it's legit.
One moment... checking a couple of things.
They claim to be a member of EGBA, but I don't see them on their list
Who is EGBA?
European Gaming and Betting Assoc
And also ESSA European Sports Security Assoc
If I can verify those memberships, then you can be pretty sure they are ok
Outlay are charging me insurance to withdraw $960,000 at 15%. Is this a common practice. I have paid 12.5% so far.
and they are waiting until I pay another 2.5% of $24,000
Many sites do charge for withdrawals, but they want YOU to pay them?
This isn't right.
This is the bookmaker asking for insurance that they pay to a New York Insurance company to transfer the money to me when the withdrawal occurs and the 15% is paid in full
No. This does not sound right to me.
But do you know if it is fact?
are you able to check it out?
Because the Bookie account is in Cyprus they choose to insure the whole amount before transfering any to me the client
Outlay games does withdrawals by either direct deposit or by cheque, but there isn't supposed to be a fee through them.
What can you know about marlin Reynolds being legitimate?
Let me find out. One moment.
First, let me give you this. They claim to be a member of the European Sports Security Association. You can check that with ESSA at +32 (0)22 567565
Marlin Reynolds are also telling me that i need to pay the insurance of $24,000 to the bookmaker. Should i pay this?
Does ESSA have a website to check the details on?
Or is phoning the best?
The website doesn't directly.
EGBA does and they do not appear on the listing.
There used to be a bookmaker in FL: www.marlinreynolds.com
Are you able to check out that insurance is a common practise for transfering large amounts of money?
That appears not to have been legit.
Is that the insurance you are talking about?
What you are describing is a transaction process common to an internet scam
You asked me about Marlin Reynolds.
I am looking into the individual.
And I see some inquiries in our system from last year about marlinreynolds.com
who at the time was a bookmaker... and they want to know if it is a scam.
they are now marlinreynolds.net
Yes, i have seen that one but it seems inconclusive
let me check the domain registrations.
It may only seem inconclusive because you already have money invested in this. From an objective standpoint, I can tell you that this is an easily recognizable pattern.
But I am going to check the domain registrations.
Ok. Marlinreynolds.net is registered to this individual
Beirut Beirut, Beirut 1816 Lebanon 357228888920
So what does that mean objectively?
Fraudulent online activity is often related to domain registrations in the middle east and korea.
Their site relates to investment portfolio consulting.
And they claim to be in Vienna, Austria
yet the domain is registered to someone in Beirut.
Right but that isn't necessarily impossible to operate that way?
Nothing is impossible.
What if I told you that Outlaygames.com is registered also to Fadi Saad in Beruit?
Is that right?
Again, not impossible.
But quite peculiar
Is he Russian?
Registrant: Fadi Saad Beirut Beirut, Beirut 1816 Lebanon Administrative Contact: Saad, FadiXXX@XXXXXX.XXX Beirut Beirut, Beirut 1816 Lebanon 357228888920 Technical Contact: Saad, FadiXXX@XXXXXX.XXX Beirut Beirut, Beirut 1816 Lebanon 357228888920
So what do i understand from that?
Does Fadi have a record for fraud?
Or is he a website technician?
A website technician for a sports bookmarker in Costa Rica, and an investment firm in Austria, both with websites registered in Lebanon?
But this is a scam.
On the basis of Fadi?
On the basis of everything we've talked about. This is the typical pattern of an internet scam - where you are asked to send an amount of money to receive a larger amount. It is very common. The web sites to which you are referring are not registered in the names of the respective companies.
Could that be for tax reasons?
I know that Wilson Richardson is a scam and TPG Holdings
No. The scam is common enough to have a name. It's called the "advance fee scam"
The names and locations change, but the patter is identical
So do insurers do this type of cover?
You are asking for my opinion, and I can tell you that I've been in the IT field for almost 30 years.
And I am doing my best to tell you that I have seen this a hundred times.
I would suggest following up to check their membership.
Which I think you will find not valid.
So it seems intereting that Outlay pay out but all the rest is a scam?
That is membership to ESSA?
Not reallly that interesting... if you look at their terms and conditions, they have very low maximums. If you look at my first response regarding them, you will see that there is more to my answer than "they pay out".
Please do not send these people any money.
Yes, ESSA phone
I'll remain available to you. you can always come back to this page if you need me.
right, how do i do that in a new session?
Or is it only while this session is open?
If it's about the same thing, you can just come back to this one. Just add the page to favorites. If you rate me favorably, you will also get a link in your email to follow up with me.
You don't have to pay twice.
Would you be able to provide some background on the following please?
Branson Davies www.bransondavies.com
The bookmaker they use www.worldwidesportsbet.net
Omegga Investments (alias Wilson Richardson) XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX
Their bookmaker http://www.tpgholding.com/
It was sort of related to the same stuff as I have had contact with these people too and thought maybe it would show up the same website owner.
