Online Gambling Scams

Be wary of online gambling scams. When gamblers like yourself look for baseball picks, they often turn to sports handicapping services. Unfortunately, not all sports handicapping services are legit. Here are a few things you need to look out for to avoid phony handicapping services.

Forum Tricks

Since sports betting forums are so popular, they are a great spot for handicappers to attract new customers for their baseball picks. The majority of these people are legitimate, but there are plenty that are not.

Con artists will attempt to steal your money with delayed game picks and multiple forum accounts. They wait until the game is over before making an official-looking set of game picks. Then they create multiple e-mail accounts, sign up under several different forum names, and send out multiple posts recommending the handicapping service so that you, the mark, believe that they are making their clients lots of money.

Playing Both Sides

Dishonest handicappers frequently scam people by playing both sides of the fence in a game. This sad and immoral practice can be done in two ways:

  • The first involves setting up two different handicapping services. With the first service, they select the home team. The second service picks the road team. This way they guarantee that half of the clients make money on the game.
  • The second method splits the customer base into two halves with each half receiving a different pick.

E-mail Scams

Con artists often pose as sports handicappers in order to get people’s cash through emails. A popular technique is to post a pick in a forum. If their pick is successful, the scum bags will send out e-mails to people bragging about the win, while at the same time advertising their phony service and picks. If the game loses, they sign up for another e-mail account and repeat the process all over again.
