Player's Complaint

Respected, I am writing this to you in the hope that you can help me and solve my problem with online betting 18bet.My name and surname is [EDIT] address [EDIT],Mail address [EDIT].I opened my first betting account 18bet as early as 08/07/2019 I placed my first deposit of 100 euros, verified the account by sending all the required documents (passport, id card, driver's license). As of 05/10/2019 when my account closed for no reason by 18bet management I placed over 1000 euro deposit, played over 1000 bets (all single bets) generated income of about 3000-3500 euro (exactly unclear due to closed account and many open bets set) I had one Withdrawal of 22/09/2019 in the amount of 500 euros and everything went on the best. Later on October 2, 2019, I made a new order for withdrawal of 2000 euros, and that's where the problems begin. 18bet ask me to resubmit my documents for verification, and when I do, they close my account with the message:

Dear [EDIT],

We are reaching you to inform you that our Anti-Fraud Department has detected that your IP address is already in use by another account.

You may refer to the "Player Registration & Deregistration Process" section in our Terms & Conditions:

"3.8 The player's account must be registered in his / her own, personal and correct, name and personal details. The individual has to ensure that all data given at the registration stage is true, complete and free of error. This therefore also means that the The player has to register personally.Also, the player can only have one account.Any other accounts which a player opens with Shark77 Limited, or which are advantageously owned by the player should be considered as duplicate accounts. consequent to the identification of the main account. If we close a duplicate account, deposits will be refunded, and all bonuses, free bets and winnings acquired from such promotions using that duplicate account will be void and forfeited. does not cover the amount to be refunded to us, we will seek to recover the loss incurred directly from any other of your accounts. "

Here is a link for reference: https://www.18bet.com/en/pages/terms-and-conditions/

In accordance with our policy, your account has been closed and the total of your deposits, minus fees for administrative costs, have been returned to your Neteller account.


[EDIT] | Customer Care Team

First and foremost, I strongly object to false insinuations and accusations, and I say: my IP address is not used by anyone other it is not public, I do not share,and it in a protected 16-digit encrypted code. The account is registered in my personal name with the correct name and all the other correct information. The only problem may be the first letter of the name because it is written in my Latin script [EDIT], the English script says [EDIT], or the Serbian Cyrillic script says [EDIT]. I also opened my account myself, and I do not have any duplicate account as 18bet says. The only possibility that there is a duplicate account is that it is in my name with a different mail address (eg. [EDIT]) account opened by another person who works in conjunction with 18bet in order to compromise the original account and the original account holder. There should also be an 18bet program set up to allow you to enter the same name, first name, address, Mobile phone number. I have been betting online for over 5 years, it has become a hobby and fun for me, or I have had an account with over 20 online bookmakers of leading reputable companies (bet365, betfair, sbobet, pinnacles sports, paddy power,unibet,William hill) but this unpleasantness and injustice never happened to me. Please best if you have the time and opportunity to examine my case which is probably not alone, check who opened another account in my name and on what day, from which server and from which country.View transaction history, bet history, check netteler account from which account funds were transferred since they were certainly not transferred from my neteller account protected by a 26 digit code. Also incorrect is the false statement that 18bet said that In accordance with our policy, your account was closed and the total of your deposits, minus fees for administrative costs, were returned to your Neteller account, since with invested about 1000 euro and I had a refund only 413.08 euro by 18bet or Shark77 Limited BEST REGARDS [EDIT]

Hi aaaggghra - welcome to ThePOGG.com!

I'll contact the operator and see what we can find out for you, however I do need to be clear that if the operator can demonstrate that your account has used the same IP address as another player account registered with them there will be nothing we can do to help you.
