    I wonder if Betjack are one of those effected because as of w/end 23/5 their site is shut down! What about people’s money?

      Yes, Betjack’s office in the Gold Coast was raided. Police won’t divulge too much else yet.

      Can only speculate for now. If they were running since 2008 it could be Topaziar or Laybet Professionals and their derivatives.
      Trying to find out more..
