BetOTL ( Bet On The Line, betotl.com ) are running a similar scam to TPGbet
They ring up and tell you that you had an account opened by another company (that you may or may not have already been scammed by in the past) and it is now worth tens of thousands of dollars.However. It is now suspended /de-activated because you haven’t used it in so many years. The story goes that the previous company got them to open an account for you but didn’t send the funds through, so all the trading that was done on your account, was all on credit.
They must be using someone’s old database because they had my name, old email, old address and even a password I might have used, so they can be quite convincing.
The catch is though that you need to send them the initial deposit money so they can re-activate the account, then you’ll be able to withdraw your balance. Or..you can send half the deposit and they’ll release half the funds. If you suggest that they just take your deposit out and send to you the rest they say no deal, can’t do that, when it would be the logical solution. They told me I had 43,000 in my account but needed to pay the 5,000 that they ‘credited’ to me in the beghinning. After I sent that, I would also need to pay an additional 65 Euro transfer fee.
Why you shouldn’t trust BetOTL
First of all , it sounds like what TPGbet were doing/trying for the last couple of years and there’s enough testimonials to tell you that once you send your money, that wil be the last you hear from them.
I looked at the IP address for both the TPGbet and BetOTL websites and they are the same!..located here:
Gives you a lot of confidence huh, especially when they claim to be in Costa Rica. The website was only launched in February this year.
There was no ‘withdrawal’ page on the betotl.com website either, so I don’t know how I’d withdraw my money once I got in , if I ever did!
They gave me a telephone number that I could call them back on.. +852 , which is the country code for Hong Kong. When I asked the sales rep about it, he said he didn’t understand, and then gave the answer later that it was a satellite number. I asked him to prove he was in Costa Rica..name some streets, take a photo, show me ID…nothing, he gave up and hung up. ( now I hear they gave someone else a number that goes to somewhere in Africa).
So they claim to be in Costa Rica. The bank where they want you to send your ‘fee’ to is in Cypress, and the telephone number is in Hong Kong. How do you think you would go if something went ‘wrong’ as it is sure to do!
I’ve had one report so far from someone who sent them over $50,000 and hasn’t seen a single cent yet. All they do is keep stringing them along. There’s always another fee to pay.
