Just seen this email which arrived in my junk email box.    Obviously it's a scam.  It is asking people to place bets using BET365.com and then forward 50% of the winnings via Clickbank to the mysterious person behind this scam.  

Stage two is even more laughable.  They say they will deposit £10k-£30k in your account for you to make bets on their behalf - all on BET365.com again. They will even pay you a "wage" of £2k-£4k per month.

Needless to say, I shall not be applying for this system.....

I signed up for this service with The Pro Bettor on 25th April to give it a try and have had 6 tips so far - they are all Asian Handicap football bets. I have had 5 winners in a row and a 6th which lost, starting at £20 stakes. All odds are around evens.

As long as I forward 50% of the winnings to them within 48hrs then I can keep getting the tips. So far I have no complaints and will try to keep this thread updated when I get chance to. I've been stung over-and-over again from crap systems I've bought or tipsters I've subscribed to, but this one looks promising. So I know exactly where you're coming from. I guess only time will tell...

Backing evens is not a system. 90%+ of evens or less will win their races, this has been common knowledge for years.

You say that "as long as you forward a percentage of your winnings" But do they pay a percentage back to you for your losses??!

Even stakes will definitely not make a profit on evens or below. And chasing losses on evens or less is also a big no-no.

Good luck with it though, and please keep us updated!! Maybe even a running commentary on the tips before they run, then afterwards the results? That would be great, and highly appreciated.

I fully understand where you're coming from. They do claim around 93% (I think) strike rate and if you have a loser then you pay no commission on the next bet - to help you break even on the previous loss. I'll see what I can do with the tips (I don't want to get screwed for 'giving tips away') but I can copy the e-mails if that helps, or even get you screen shots? Such as the following which 2 which both won:

Looks like the tips are coming from a semi detached house here:

Not exactly a success story. I would say avoid this. Does not sound right.

Also just looking the the website they are using a gmail account?? Not exactly professional is it.

I think 'Heather' was the person sending the emails with the tips, not the forum member :rolleyes:

Is that one of their websites? Or a new one to divert bad reviews?

I also so received an email invite today.  Seems like they are re-marketing this.  What I don't understand is the connection to Bet365.  I, and many other people, already have an account with them, so there will be no commission earned for them.    

If theses bets are successful, then the smart thing to do would be continue to forward 50% of winnings from the Bet365 site, but then place your own private bets elsewhere!  

Maybe I was a bit too super critical in my first post of 27th April ?

Just to let you know that, in a fit of madness, I signed-up to this service.   I'm just very intrigued about it.  Needless to say, my £50 bank will probably disappear in a couple of days, but hey ho, that's the nature of the business.  And i'd rather lose £50 than some poor unsuspecting member of the public who probably would be a lot worse off if they signed up.  

Today's bets bombed (of course!), but i'll provide a more detailed update tomo once the Brazilian matches have concluded.

Day 1:  4 bets at odds between 1.30 and 2.10

3 losses and 1 win

Points:  -2.875

- The 1.30 odds game lost !
- They also utilise a suicidal staking system.  Day 1 required me to bet 54% of my bank!!  

Clearly, I'm expecting to lose my bank within a matter of days :-(
