It sounds to me as if Ladbrokes are claiming that this is some type of technical issue.My tech knowledge of cookies is zero, but try sending them an email saying that you have tried clearing cookies,but have been unable to withdraw normally using their system,and that you are 'hereby requesting a withdrawal' and stating the withdrawal method and amount.Point out that they have stated both in emails and livechat that your account was verified - forward the emails.Ultimately,Ladbrokes cannot hide behind tech difficulties with their system if you are having problems with that.They do have a reputation to protect.

couple hours ago I get one more email

Thank you for contacting us regarding your account, diana8181

After careful and thorough investigation we are now in a position to inform you that your account will remain suspended indefinitely. This is due to the fact that we cannot verify any of the documentation you have sent to us. Should you open any new accounts they will be closed down with immediate effect.

This decision is not open to discussion and any further communication on this subject will be rendered futile.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us again and we will be happy to help you.

Kind regards,

It seems strange to me that your account was confirmed as verified, but after you placed a large winning bet, your account was suddenly not verified. Are you saying that Ladbrokes have now effectively confiscated your balance of 16800 Euros? Obviously I can only go on what you have posted on here, but their behaviour does not seem to be in keeping with that of a reputable bookmaker, which Ladbrokes, even though I am no fan of theirs, most certainly are. Assuming you are not resident in the UK, then I think you need to contact the Gibraltar Gambling Commission (www.gibraltar.gov.gi/home/2126-the-gambling-commissioners-advice-to-complainants), download and complete a Complaint Resolution Request Form and send it to gccomplaints@gibraltar.gov.gi I know that this is long and complicated process and the matter is unlikely to be resolved quickly, but if what you say is true (and I've no reason to think it isn't), then you must not allow Ladbrokes to get away with treating you like this. Good luck.

It doesn't seem to me like Ladbrokes are saying the document scans are unclear or of poor quality in this case - otherwise they wouldn't have accepted your verification in the first place. The only thing that makes sense to me here is that Ladbrokes have decided that the documents are fake,altered or in some other way fraudulent - eg not yours.If Ladbrokes are wrong about that,and the documents are yours and are genuine,then your only options are new BMR or the authorities [since Ladbrokes have refused to talk to you].If you can prove that the documents are genuine,then Ladbrokes will have a very weak case - since they accepted your verification in the first place,and since they later refused to talk to you.
The only other possibility that I can think of,is that Ladbrokes think that you have cheated them in some other way.

Seems I know where is problem( I think ).I sent two documents-driver license and passport. Both document is issued on 2005 year(difference 2 month). On driver license I have black hair on passport Im blondie. I think therefore he decided my documents is fake.
Miserably if that is reason....

That may well be the reason, but it doesn't explain why Ladbrokes originally told you that your account had been successfully verified and you didn't need to do anything further. Nor does it entitle them, in my view, simply to confiscate your balance and break off all communication with you without providing you with a proper explanation as to what was wrong with the documents you had submitted or giving you the chance to submit alternative documentation as proof of ID. My advice remains the same - contact the Gibraltar Gambling Commission and don't let Ladbrokes get away with this without challenging them.

If you are in fact female,it might be worth one last shot.Try 'phoning Ladbrokes and asking to speak to somebody senior.Point out that ladies often change their hair colour.Ask them to take another look at your case.
At least you might find out if that was the reason !

Hi again

Still cant resolev my (ladbrokes) problems with payout.
Also Gibraltar Gambling Commission doing nothing.Get severals emails from David Walsh(Gibraltar commision)
like this

I have referred the matter to the operator. I will contact you once I have received a response.

or

I would advise you to liaise with the operator to determine what they would consider an acceptable way to proceed given the information you have provided. The webpage you link to below appears to suggest a possible way forward.

and last

The Operator will be contacting you.


I sent email to Arthur(Customer Services Superviser)16 january and still dont get any answer.

Is tehre any higher power than Gibraltar comision because they do NOTHING.
Where can I subbmit complaint about Gibraltar Commision inaction?

Strange case this one.... A few things do come to mind though after reading through this thread.

The game in question may have been corrupt (match fixing). As your wager was pretty large, they may suspect you could be involved in a match fixing betting syndicate and are using the ID verification as an excuse.

In regards to initially being verified, this appears to happen quite a lot and then bookies say you have failed checks. The only reason for this (that I can think of) is that the ID will be manually checked before being sent for further verification by an external company. So while you may have been initially verified by customer service, any large payout would initiate further checks such as checking for image editing, time stamps and use of external ID verification. ID fraudsters make various mistakes when falsifying ID which are picked up instantly via digital verification.

Lastly, you're listed as being from Ireland on this forum, but your command of English seems to be lacking somewhat. Perhaps you're just being lazy and because of this ladbrokes may suspect you're not who you say you are.

yea,Im not from Ireland and my English is so so.When I placed bet Im working and living in Ireland but now more than 3 month Im home.But all this details know as Ladbrokes as Gibraltar and there is no questions or suspect about this.There is question about inaction as from Ladbrokes side(dont wana answer on emails or other comunications) as from Gibraltar side-I see you can resolve this problem.
It is NOT normally answer from Gibraltar side!!!

Maybe that could be the issue then - if you were registered in a different country and placed the bet from a different location, that could be the "security" issue. This combined with your ID issue + the large wager probably flagged up as highly suspicious by the bookie.

Where are you from by the way / what country did you register from???

Have you asked Ladbrokes what more they want for the purposes of verifying your ID ? If you have,and they haven't responded,then point out to the Gibraltar authorities that the 'way forward' isn't working - and why.

Have you tried phoning them? You will probably get a lot further pursuing ladbrokes or even the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner over the phone.

So you registered when you were in Ireland and placed the bet in Ireland. Just a couple of other questions.

Although you registered in Ireland, did you use an Irish address or your latvian address (if you still had one).

Did you try to withdraw your balance whilst in Ireland or when you were back in Latvia?

If you have registered in one country with details from another or if you have tried cashing out whilst in a different location, this would have alerted the security team as a potential issue.

Your ID might not be the problem, it could be something do do with your IP location either whilst registering or trying to withdraw.

im having a similar issue with apparently the same strategy employed. i had funds in my account, i think around 200 e and forgot my password in 2016. i mailed them about it and after 6 mails they request a copy of my id card. which i normally never scan or mail because you have no idea who that file ends up with in the future. i found that very strange because even paypal doesnt request that for a password.

i did anyways and after that nothing happened and eventually i forgot about it. yesterday i found out that betways which i used since then have no more ufc fights to bet on so i remembered ladbrokes. i checked my mail and found out that they had claimed the documents are not valid. so i sent them the exact same scans and asked for immediate unfreeze which they did but miraculously all my funds have disappeared. further questions about this are being ignored up to now - so im not betting on conor tonight :)

i can guarantee you it will take another heap of mails until my funds reappear if they do at all. that technique is called administrative funds delay, the banks use it all the time. you delay releasing funds by creating runarounds - which increases your cash volume and such the value of the company. keep in mind that everything you win is virtual. the only real funds are our deposits - so if you win large sums that doesnt mean they have it available for you. kind of like the stock market, its all an illusion to get you to deposit more.
