      • This "company" owe me about £2.5k and I have met with the same nonsense that other seem to have experienced.

        I have looked into the matter and it does not appear that SportsSpread are regulated by anyone in Ireland. I have contacted the Irish Revenue Commission, who apparently might be able to help. I am waiting to hear back from them.

        Unfortunately it does appear to be the case that gambling debts are unenforceable in Ireland (there is new legislation coming in to rectify this). I was told this by Brian O Neil, and have confirmed this, who essentially said we don't legally owe you any money so tough luck.

        I will let people know if I discover more, but I would not hold out any high hopes, they are clearly insolvent and it seems likely the whole company is a fraud.

          • Anyone got any further with this?
            I'm not getting any joy with any debt collectors/solicitors etc in Dublin probably for the reasons outlined above.
            If we cant get our money the least we should do is try and get O'Neil completely out of business so no one else can get screwed over.

              No. My experience is similar - solicitors not intested, Irish authorities not interested. I might write to my MEP.

              • I was told that the transfer to my german bank account was unsuccessful so I had to give them my details again.
                Since then I haven't heard back and must say that my withdrawal amount is probably the smallest sum of all withdrawal requests here but still annoying.

                        • Anyone got anything out of them? I rang up again the other day and spoke to one of the idiots in accounts who took no responsibility for anything and couldnt understand why I was angry they have owed me money for 6 months.

                          • I've read about the problems about this company on this forum, having also had major personal issues myself. I've had a large amount owing for nearly 12 months and did get part paid over a period up to September, nothing since. BUT completely out of the blue I received a payment end of last week ! Still due money but something has changed ! I wonder whether new owners have come in, basically paying next to nothing for the company but taking over the debt pile as well. Certainly looks encouraging anyway. I'd basically written off my balance outstanding as a bad debt.

                            • Unfortunately i have opened an account with these clowns before reading peoples reviews. Whilst i actually find their website very good and the spreads relatively tight compared to others, the problem has happened since i started winning. They had no problems taking my money off me, however since i have made a withdrawal i have heard nothing from them. I originally withdrew 500 euros onto my card. I then had an email saying payment has been sent by cheque. I replied saying i do not want a cheque and what other payment methods could i have. I emailed about another 10 times before a reply (note : english phone number does not work) a guy called Robert Giles emailed me back. very rude and very blunt : your cheque will be posted in a few days. Since then heard nothing. I know its only 500 euros, but i also have over 500 euros left in my account. this has been going on for weeks now and not had a penny back and virtually zero response from their very rude customer service
