claim to have inside team information and “The 20 Star Lock of the Year.You can find these services several ads in any newspaper sports pages, as well as on the Internet.
They take advantage of naïve people looking for fast cash. These experts claim seemingly impossible winning percentages of 80% or more.
Among the sports betting public there is a cancer known as scamdicappers.These people don’t care about earning money for their customers. In reality it is an uncomplicated con, and due to the potentially limitless pool of customers, they may keep on profiting indefinitely.
Naive gamblers by the hundreds will always be around. Some might have really gotten themselves deeply in the red, but others are motivated by greed and are sure they’ll win. Regardless of the reason, those who gamble choose to call this person in pursuit of a large pay off. At the end of the call, the gambler has wired money through Western Union for a “sure-fire” pick package.This is such a scam that they even ignore their own picks. Once again, selling picks in this way is basically just a huge rip off and a way to part you from your money.
The scam is very simple. The fake handicapper simply tells each of his callers to wager on different teams. They clearly expect those who arbitrarily win to be in contact again, this time wishing to buy an ‘upgraded’ package.
One example would be that four separate people try to call a handicap service the day the Jets/Dolphins and the 49’ers/Seahawks games are being offered to gamble on. Once they get the caller’s complete relevant details the service informs the first caller of the days picks, the New England and San Francisco teams. the picks today are the Jets and the 49’ers. The service direct’s Caller 3 to bet on the Patriots and the Seahawks while telling Caller 4 the Dolphins and the 49’ers are the play today.
As is apparent, a single caller will proceed with 2-0. It is likely that this caller will be conned into a costly pick deal. Two people will split, and only have to pay the juice. This pair of callers might be persuaded to try out the service once more. To sweeten the deal and to put them back in the lottery for the lucky pick and a subsequent pick’s package they are also promised another free pick. The final caller loses each wager as well as a lot of money, most likely, to a bookie or internet sportsbook firm.
By multiplying these callers by a factor of hundreds or so weekly, it is easy to see how much money this con can make. Even if you originally got the winning picks, the odds are against you that you’ll keep getting them. Eventually you lose any money you might have won with the lucky picks and usually end up in a bigger hole than before you made that fateful call. It’s easy to quit the service after you’ve been scammed. Unfortunately by then it’s too late.
