Onebet Is SCAM. Not paying 2500 euros. Stay away

Hello,

We have a fresh issue here. I registered in Onebet on 7th of August. I deposited, bet and won. I also bet on 8th of August. On the next day I had a surprise- I couldnt log in to my account. The reason- "your country is restricted". And my deposit back!
Well, when that law took place- on 8th of August? I doubt it. And why then Onebet accepts deposits from restricted countries? To steal money!
And even if there is such a law- the bookmakers has to transfer all the funds to the customer`s wallet. Do customers have any rights in Onebet. Let`s see!

So, I contacted live chat, I wrote several e-mails. The answer I received was unadequate and more than cynical. Here it is:

Hi Mario,

Thank you for waiting.

We refunded the deposit however we are not able to payout the promo part of your balance and this is why you received the deposit back only.

Best regards,

André
Senior Advisor




So, this is it. They "are not able to payout". Any other explanation? No. On live chat they even told me " have a nice day"


So, people, feel free to register and deposit in Onebet. If you win, a law may take place and you wouldnt be able to access your account.

Well, I have about 2500 euros there. It is obviously a big, cynical fraud. Now I will go to the police and to the lawyer. What are my choices? Would you please help me?

Thank you!

Welcome to BMR Forum, Mario89.

May I ask what Country you're currently in right now? That's why It's always best to read the general T&C before playing.

Well, I am from Bulgaria. But it wasnt stated in the general T&C that betting from Bulgaria is problematic. Also....why do the accept deposits and registrations from this country/ They first accepted my deposited, I won...after that..restriction. Smelly...smelly

Yes, thank you for the information. But I havent read anything bad for Onebet in the net before i registered.

Well, I am shocked as this is big and cynical fraud. 2500 euros. If a bookmaker accepts registration and deposit from a country, he has to pay the winnings and all the funds if there is restriction ( Actually I am sure that there is no restriction. It is just a secret way for stealing money. No law has taken place in 8th of August.)

And they do not explain anything. They just say "well, we decide not to pay. we give you back the deposit. Bye, bye"

Where are my rights?

So, would you please hep me. What should be my next steps?

Onebet T&C https://www.onebet.com/en/terms#userRegistration_static under "3. Your obligations as a User" paragraph 3.1.3. actually mentioned your Country, Mario.

"You are not resident in Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, China, Denmark, Dutch Caribbean, Estonia, France, Gibraltar, Hungary, Hong Kong, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, United States and its dependencies, military bases and territories including but not limited to Am. Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, N. Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands."

I'm not sure how they review new accounts but I get your point, what if you lose your deposit, are they going to refund your money for the reason that you're in the list of the Country restrictions? But if you want to pursue the complaint, the company is licensed under the Maltese online gambling license, you can try to submit the complaint to this address,support.mga@mga.org.mt.

Well, this does not satisfy me as I have 2000 euros more there.

I submitted a complaint to Maltese gambling authorities but it`s 4 days and I still got no answer

BMR Sandy , BMR_Brad , Guys..all bettors form the world. You cannot imagine what happened with these guys. They first payed me 1000 euros, then I asked why it is only 1000 euros and not 2000 euros. Then they tried to cheat on me that my last bet WAS NOT WINNING BUT REJECTED.

But I was enough to make screenshot. So here I attach their last two e-mails...where you can clearly see that they are cheating on purpose (not by mistake). And I will attach my winning bet: So here are their answers:

1st:email

Hi Mario,

All of these bets you mention were rejected by our traders shortly after being placed, meaning the funds went back into your balance.

Bet 85089697 was rejected on 7/8 so the stake was given back
Bet 85090128 was rejected on 7/8 so the stake was given back
Bet 85091416 was rejected on 7/8 so the stake was given back

There are no more outstanding funds for you as we have refunded what you are eligible for.

My answer to this e-mail;

Hello,


Do not lie!

These bets you are talking about are on the event Astana- Dinamo Zagreb. Some of my bets were rejected there. But my bet Nordessland- Partizan was accepted! It was my last bet!

I didnt make this bet on 7/8 but on 8/8! I am dissapointed by your efforts to cheat me and I will continue with my complaints!

It`s a shame for you


AND THEN, NOTICE THEIR SECOND EMAIL

2ND EMAIL:

Sandy, what you mean?

The rejected bets were just rejected by a operator, some kind of limit...I dont know.

From my screenshot it is absolutely clear that my winnings are around 2500 euros.

In their e-mail (which I posted) they count 3 rejected bets but they have in common with my last bet.

Moreover these guys are very very arrogant. I sent them the screenshot. And their answer is:

Hello Mario,

Thank you for your email.

I am really not sure what the picture is for.

You got 200 euro back first, then another 980, that makes it 1180 euro in total.
That was your total balance, with that last bet included.

Therefore as we have informed already, you have been refunded the amount you are entitled to at this point.

Best regards,

Daniel

Your first post claimed that your original withdrawal has not been honored due to Country restrictions and only your original deposit has been returned. I'm a bit confuse as you never mention above that you have pending bets.

Have you already submitted a complaint to Curacao using the above provided details?

Well,

I missed to mention this as I am shocked from the arrogance of these guys. I registered on 7th of Augusut, I made 2 wiining bets, On 8-th of August I made the 3rd bet (which was for tomorrow (9th of August in the evening). And when I tried to log in on 9th of August in the morning, I couldnt log in. So, when I won in the evening..I didnt know how to feel - happy or sad

I am now submitting a complaint.Can they really do something?

Thank you very much for your time and your help
