If you are not new to betting then you are very familiar with this topic. You must have gotten an email, text message, or even a social media post from these fraudsters. Either claiming to have information on fixed matches of upcoming football matches or trying to getting you to register with them. My first instinct has always been to ignore such messages and sending money is not even an option. Rather, ask yourself why the seller is wanting to sell information about a fixed game. If a game is fixed then the lesser the number of people that know about it, the better. These scammers know this and yet opt to send messages to the whole world via social media. WHY?
Most people think it’s simply because they want to make money, it’s funny. If the game is a fixed match as they claim, they should opt for a loan and stake on it. In summary, nobody wants to be involved with the scandal that comes with a fixed game.
The Fixed Game Scam
The truth is this transaction involving paying to get access to fixed matches is a very big scam. The owners of the Facebook accounts displaying such information have no access to such information.
But let’s look at how it works
Let’s say these fixed matches vendors receive 100 responses, each offering to pay for a particular match event
Of the total number that responds to the post, 30% would be giving a game tip of a home win. Another 30% will be given a tip for the away side to win while the rest would be tipped to stake on a draw. At the end of the game, it’s either going to be a home win, away win or a draw.
Now the game is over and it ends in a draw, which means one-third of the customers have won. Leaving the other 60% with regrets, in an attempt to get their pains heard they get blocked or scammed yet again. For those who won, they now believe that these scammers really have a source for these fixed matches.
It’s another weekend and these scammers send out another set of emails hoping to get more clients. And now they have screenshots from those who have won to convince you, and thus increase the price for the tips. Just because you won the last time you are feeling pretty good about this source, you pay again. And yet again they divide the outcomes amongst the number of interested parties. If you are lucky you win yet again and you start helping them share the gospel. Eventually, you will lose a huge sum of money because the more you win the more confident you become.
This is how the cycle continues until you understand the trick, so it all starts with that reply to the first message.
They will never refund your stake, rather they would offer you another supposed fixed bet tip. Hoping that with luck you could win and eventually pay them yet again to get another tip. Another set would ask you to pay after win, so in any case, the game fails you won’t disturb them.
In the end, anybody can sit in their living rooms and create a fixed bet tip and the main tool is guesswork.
