BEWARE US online gamblers with Bodog !! Bodog owes me $26,000 and has concluded they won't pay me because of some mysterious account created back in 2005 that I don't know about and it owed $1,000.  As you're aware Bodog is under major US investigations.  They won't pay you if you're a big winner.  I have emails to prove that they deactivated my account so I won't be able to access it and cancelled all payouts.  They are out to scam US players they know who will cash out and close their accounts. 

I urge everyone who's been screwed over by Bodog to call their banks and credit card companies to retrieve all funds that were deposited to Bodog.  TRUST ME the banks and credit cards have no questions asked and they can not do anything to you if you file a dispute charge under the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.  The banks and credit card companies have 100% support of their customers. Don't believe Bodog with their silly threats.  I'm pissed off I was only able to retrieve $15,000 that i deposited.  Bodog still owes me another $10,000.

Stay away from Bodog ! and those who've been screwed by Bodog, do a chargeback !

#1 Author of original report

Bodog and Calvin Ayre Affiliation Obvious

AUTHOR: Bodog Beware - (United States of America)

Thank you for your response and trying to exonerate Bodog's action coming from Calvin Ayre ambassador (Calvin claims he's no longer the owner or affiliated with Bodog which is obviously not true with this response from one of his associates).
Either way, this issue has been resolved (although not the way Bodog or myself would have liked).  Any US players encounters problems with Bodog please contact www.ic3.gov. 
As I am certain those who are involved with Bodog's illegal enterprise will be weary of stepping foot in the U.S. upon an ongoing investigation.  If you're unaware the US Attorney's office in Baltimore has launched suits against Bodog and has an ongoing suit (see Forbes article about Bodogs problems with payouts in the US) As many US players can provide proof just as in this report with the reply, this shows that they're admitting their illegal acts committed by Bodog (Bodog Ambassador with www.calvinayre.com).  Defrauding a player of their payout once requested a large payout.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Response from Becky Liggero, Global Brand Ambassador, BodogBrand.com

AUTHOR: BodogBecky - (Antigua and Barbuda)

This dispute was escalated to the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, the regulator that oversees Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (the operator of www.bodog.com).  The Commission investigated the allegations and reviewed the details of this player's file and transaction history.  The Commission completed its review and resolved that the MMGG's conclusion that the account had been deliberately opened using false information and with the apparent intention of avoiding being linked to a previous account that was closed as a consequence of chargebacks.  As such, the Commission concluded that MMGG's election to refund all deposits and to close the account to prevent fraud was warranted and correct.  The MMGG is vigilant in monitoring such activity in order to prevent fraud and to comply with its anti-money laundering procedures.

Thank you,
Becky
