Complaint Review: TopBet
TopBet TopBetEU topbet authorized one of their many payment companies to illegally debit my account for 329.00 Internet
Most betting sites I've used send you an email after you post money to your account at their sites, which states, "please be aware that your bank account will show a payment to XXXXXX" Topbet does not do this. I set up an account on Topbet and deposited the minimum required to set up an account. I won a bet I placed with Topbet, and then My bank (on their own) blocked the payment request from TopBet to set up the account.... Because the payment request from TopBet, on my bank statement, showed as "shirt-and-ties.org" with a phone number. "Shirt-and-ties.org" is a reall website and their phone number and website address are based in Georgia/Russia. My bank insisted on blocking the payment stating that a new and unrecognized / never before International payment request from China and for the first time ever, there was an attempted transaction for 329.00 from China. Never before has this happened to me.
I called TopBet and they told me that they contract with payment companies all over the globe. I told them about the 329.00 payment request, and that that had only happened since I gave them my debit card info and never before. They told me it had nothing to do with them. Then they told me because my bank blocked the transaction, they were taking my winnings, and if I wanted to retrieve them, I had to wire transfer money to them via person to person then they provided me (as they explained) a randomly generated name of a person located in the Philipinnes to which I was to wire 100.00 to. They said I needed to do this in order to fund my account and gain access again to my winnings. I then sent an email to their main support email address to ask if this was correct and no one has gotten back to me. Luckily, I retained my original investment by my bank blocking their attempted payment request.
