Bet Phoenix - SCAM Sportsbook
39, rue Pieter - Boite # 1 B 1190 Brussels Belgium.
The owner is a known scumbag weasel; that has no problem lying to staff, agents, and finding ways to slow pay players. Bet Phoenix ownership has also surrounded themselves with incompetent marketing staff; hiring the past marketing manager from Bet Cascade, who almost single handily put that company out of business.
As far back as 2003 the ownership of Bet Phoenix, have a history NOT paying employees and affiliates. It is just a matter of time before this scam Sportsbook starts stiffing their players. Back in 2002 the owner of Bet Phoenix, then a partner with Diamond Sportsbook closed up shop and moved it players under the CRIS umbrella, stiffing their entire staff thier severance pay, and leaving them without a job.
Bet Phoenix is currently stacking up a huge number of complaints, by tricking customers into signing up an account by with outrageous bonus offers, changing wager rules to avoid payouts, bait and switch tactics.
Customer service is obviously low on their priority list. Thier CS team practice the slow pay tactics often used by scam and high risk books:
* They target new and unsuspecting customers by offering too good to be true bonuses
* Host a professionally designed web site tricking new customers into thinking they are a veteran Sportsbook
It is easy however to see why unwitting customers are easily duped by this scam sportsbook that offers extensive sporting events, a casino, bingo hall, horse book. Plus attractive wager types that include straight, parlays (2 to 15 teams) , teasers (2 to 7 teams. 4 to 16 points), buy points / pick pitchers, futures / props, action reverse, if win or push and if win only.
Bet Phoenix offers 3rd party deposit methods include Mastercard / Visa credit card, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, Neteller, and cash transfer; all these 3rd deposit methods give them more reasons to delay your payouts.
Here are 2 of the most common sportsbook scams being used by Bet Phoenix
1. New Sportsbook with Large Bonuses (75%, 100%, 125% or more) - this is a very common tactic of new operations that don't know what they are doing. They open a new sportsbook (especially around football season) and offer large bonuses to get players to sign-up. Their business model is flawed from the beginning and will eventually lead to financial troubles, slow/no-pay disputes and eventual shutdown. Also beware of offers that combine High Bonuses with Reduced Juice, or Lines (odds) that are way out there. Remember: If a promotion looks too good to be true, it probably is.
2. Telemarketing or Cold-Calling - is a sign of desperation that the book may be getting ready to run for the hills. Scam telemarketers will use a variety of tactics to get their hands on your money. Some try to bully you, while others will charm you. In many cases it is a single high-pressure call or other pressure tactics requiring immediate decisions (usually to make a deposit). Watch out for anything that sounds fishy.
