From Scammed To Success

From the desk of Secret Betting Club

If you have ever been conned or ripped off by a betting tipster or system then we have a fascinating tale to share with you today.

Originally posted by an Secret Betting Club member on our private forum last week, it reveals one man’s betting journey, the scams that nearly left him penniless and just how he has bounced back in fine style and is now making money betting.

Although his story has a happy ending, it provides a stark warning on the perils of joining the wrong tipster or listening to the wrong ‘expert’…

From Scammed To Success: One Mans Betting Journey…

“Several years ago, well before I stumbled across the Secret Betting Club I was looking for a decent tipster as time did not allow me to study form etc.. as I had for so many years before.

I had just taken voluntary redundancy to care for my partner and was looking for a way of subsidising our savings.

I trawled the internet for what seemed an age reading through tipster claim after claim. It really is difficult wading through all the hype that the tipsters put up as some of it is very well put together. The ones that claim massive returns were easy to filter out, but there are some that are very smart and do not paint such a pretty picture but still bait the hook with a decent sized worm.

I then came across a banner for a proofing site and decided that surely if this person checked the validity of a tipster’s results, then that was the way forward for me.

I had already subscribed at this point to a few services who just swallowed up my money and calmly told me where to go when I complained. So when one of these services also recommended the monitoring and validation site in an e-mail, I thought ‘happy days’.

No such luck. It became very clear that the ‘proofing’ service did not check results but instead just recommended any service that offered him a decent cut from subscription fees to paid services.

Conned out of my savings

I was conned and by Christ did I lose a hell of a lot of my savings, not to mention the crash of the banks in the middle of the night which cleaned out nearly 70% of my total saving and investments and also obliterated my private pension. Tough luck and a level of stress that almost saw my whole world collapse around my ears.

I honestly did not believe things could get any worse but the stress of all this financial woe soon took its toll on my partners health and I honestly thought she was never going to pull through.

Now I do not know if it is just my stubborn streak or the fact that I just hate to lose or simply that I was desperate and nearly flat broke but I sat down to completely re-evaluate everything that was occurring financially. Even though I was all for giving up I decided to persevere and give it one last try. I realise that to some that was the walking away point, but there was not a great deal of choice for me on that front.

Now as I had previously worked in the IT industry I had access to tools that the vast majority would never even hear of, never mind utilise and one of these tools was a sectional search engine, as used by educational and business communities. This little engine was probably the tool that turned it all around.

The power of this little engine was such that you could choose sectors to conduct searches focusing in the medical area or financial etc.. This is where I came across a posting concerning one of the tipsters I had previously subscribed to. It was a post from the SBC forum and it concerned a tipster I was following and how it was being proofed by the SBC.

I changed my search criteria again and focused on searches for the Secret Betting Club. In truth though, it sounded to me initially, like another con but desperate times call for drastic measures. I found a vast number of postings that you could not have found from the regular search engines and spent so many days reading these posting I thought my brain would explode.

Scepticism turned to interest

The simple point was that it was not long before scepticism of the SBC turned to interest. The information from the SBC Forum postings was exactly as I had experienced with the tipster that had turned me over. I was astonished at the number of comments that I found. It was just a shame the regular search engine could not gain access to the forum posts (as this was member’s only) as I might have found it sooner and avoided so much bookie heartache.

Anyway the rest is simple, I subscribed to the SBC, read a fair few more posts and even though it has not been plain sailing from the start the bookies have paid me back with interest. Now I just need to get back the rest that I lost in the crash (Nah I doubt that shall ever happen as tens of thousands is no mean feet to return with the size of my bank now ).

I suppose what I am saying is that there are more cons than pros out there and even cons claiming to help point you in the right direction. It is easy to be roped in and turned over but as long as there are legitimate and honest services out there fighting your corner you just have to be patient and hopefully things shall balance out.

So for myself a big thank you to the SBC and all involved, not to forget and thank the people who took the time to post their own comments and reviews which have for the most proven to be just as helpful in turning things around. A big thank you to the Copperhead Search Engine for finding the SBC for me and also a big ‘hope you rot in hell’ to the so called monitoring service that shall sell you crap for a cut of the subscription fee and tell you it has been proofed and must just be having a bad time.

In all things are a little rosier and I can only hope more people find their way to the right information and follow the good advice given. Hopefully this shall lead to much greener pastures. Just remember though that not every good tipster has good days, bad runs happen, but if the advice and reviews are good then the theory is that you shall come up trumps in the end.”

An All Too Common Problem

Whilst Edinbury gave us full permission to share this story with you, there are many more people who fall for scams just as he did who we know about. As mentioned in his story, many such scams are hard to pick out as supposed ‘review sites’ give positive reviews, solely as they make a cut on any sale they make.

Here at the Secret Betting Club we take a different stand-point as we are 100% independent and never use affiliate links or take cuts for any reviews/reports we perform on any external tipster service or product.

Instead we simply ask for a low annual fee for anyone who wishes to join us and in return we provide honest, accurate and reliable reviews and reports. It’s one reason we have been in existence since May 2006 – a rarity in the here-today-gone-tomorrow world of the tipster review world.

We also offer a genuine, bonafide 100% money back guarantee if at any time you are not satisfied with your subscription, so confident are we that you will like what we can offer you.

I Can’t Believe This Amazing Racing Tipster Is Free

January 25, 2012 by  
Filed under News

This has just landed in my inbox from the wonderful Secret Betting Club.

Certainly something worth considering in these times of cutbacks and austerity measures.

Take a look….

Its fair to say that January can be a tight month at the best of times, so it makes sense to cut costs where you can.

So with this in mind we waited until this month to share with all SBC members our review of a little known FREE racing tipster service, which has been making eye-watering profits for the past 2 years now.

As our exclusive analysis reveals, this free to all tipster has made 115.16 pts profit from 249 bets at a Return On Investment of 36.85% in 2010 and 2011 – which is a huge profit.

To put this into financial terms – at simple £25 stakes, this would be a very handy £2,879 profit in 2 years. Who would turn that kind of money down these days?

Check out the full table of results at £25 stakes…

Year Bets Stakes Profit & Loss ROI
2010 117 £3,450 £782 22.67%
2011 132 £4,362 £2,097 48.07%
TOTAL 249 £7,812 £2,879 36.85%

If you wanted to up the stakes a little, at £100 a bet it looks even more promising with a profit of £11,516.00 from just 249 bets in 2 years.

Whichever way you look at it – this tipster has been extremely profitable!

Very Easy To Follow

We are the first and only review service to uncover this service and in our research we also found it extremely easy to follow. Tipping solely for the big Saturday race meetings and the big festivals (Cheltenham, Royal Ascot etc.), they put all their advice up for free online the evening before – giving you loads of time to get the bets on.

What’s more as very few people know about them, the odds on their selections are readily available for everyone to achieve. So you don’t have to worry about bookies slashing prices or not taking your bets.

We have a full rundown of this service, its results, how to follow and insight from the expert behind it all in the very latest Secret Betting Club magazine – which is out now.

More Copy Cat Copiers

April 1, 2011 by  
Filed under News

Refering back to our recent scam busters posting (here), it would appear this act is definetly on the increase. As my regular Friday email from Clive Keeling points out. Once again folks, be careful out there.

Here’s an April Fools for you!

At least that’s what I thought when I went to this website: Betting Scalper

£109,000 per month and £396,418.14 in 3 months, but yours for, erm, £27! We see, again, what looks like the insidious mis use of Betfair profit and loss screenshots.

I mean look at some of these……

Please stop you are hurting me!

In fact, I nailed a cool £10,465,000 in the 1st Round of Quidditch over night. What a result. Look, here’s the screenshot! I layed Harry Potter after I received some insider info that he lost his glasses and had no replacements for the tournament.

I will spill the beans on how you can win nearly £11,000,000 betting on quidditch. So look out for my new guide to “Bookies Going Pott(er)y”.

I hope you get the message. So many system/tipping websites are cons, the Betfair screenshots are not real. Insist on looking at All Transactions from the Account Statement: Main Wallet. This shows settled date, Ref Id, Placed, Description, Average Odds, Stake, Status, Dr, Cr, and Balance. These will be much harder to fake.

Here is another that Clive recently had the misfortune to come across. It was a copy if his own work too!

Can these bleeping bleepers not come up with ideas of their own? I must thank a reader for bringing this website to my attention.

www.bettingrebellion.com is its name and when you enter in your email address, you are directed to http:// bettingrebellion.com/ty.html and someone called Dean Sturridge apparently from What Realy Wins Money has quite simply stolen 3 of my ideas and passed it off as his.

Dean Sturridge and What Realy Wins Money is not affiliated in any way with What Really Wins Money (we like to use 2 ll’s at WRWM towers) and nor is Dean Sturridge a new recruit to the WRWM roster, unless my publisher has gone into the transfer market in order to bring in the ex Derby County, Leicester City, Wolves, QPR and Kidderminster Harriers goal poacher to strengthen the attack.

So please spread the word and do not submit your email address. I hope this ideas stealer will cease trading soon.

For those of you who have not come across Clive before, he is a self proclaimer betting geek and the editor of a the excellent What Really Wins Money.

Clive has some excellent ideas on betting systems, trading and staking plans alike and always raises a smile or two with his clever observations in his regular newsletters. All in all well worth a look.

Here is his latest horse racing system idea, interesting stuff and all his OWN work too!

All red this week.

No I am not going to talk about the “calm down calm down” Liverpool FC ownership struggle with Stadtler and Waldorf from the Muppets seeking to retain control of the club, I want to talk about the “all red” phenomenon.
It is particularly prevalent at the beginning of the jumps season, quite simply because the stable will have the best info and angles into any horse who might be making its hurdle debut, or its bumper debut, or chase debut.
What this “all red” system seeks to do is to pinpoint you in the direction of horses who have been shortening in price throughout the morning.

So what’s involved?

Well I have spoken about all red in the past, so the system has been shared before, but will recap here

1) Go to racingpost at around 1115 – 1145pm.

2) Note any horse in a race whose price is “all red” (if this eletter goes out in time, Willing Foe in the 550 Newmarket is a prime example).

3) Look at the betting forecast of said horse and note whether the live betting market price is shorter than the betting forecast price

4) If the price is all red, and the live market price is shorter than the betting forecast price, we have a potential horse who has been solidly backed all morning.

The background.

Why “all red”?

Well, at Racingpost, when horse’s odds are “all red” it signals they are shortening, and when “all blue” it signals they are drifting.

We look mid morning because the markets will have formed by around 11am and we will get an idea, this early, as to prospective market movers or horses whose prices are being shortened during the morning (for whatever reason – most likely monetary support)

I have seen so many all red horses this week that I wanted to remind you.

So do take a look at the 550 Wolverhampton today.

As I write, Willing foe is 5/4, and the only horse in the betting market which is all red. This, for me , strengthens the signal.

Further here is the betting forecast for said 550 Newmarket

BETTING FORECAST: 7/4 Willing Foe, 11/2 Ottoman Empire, 6/1 Times Up, 8/1 Life And Soul, 9/1 Classic Punch, Rashaad, 12/1 Chiberta King, 14/1 Classic Vintage, 16/1 Private Story, 25/1 Right Step, 28/1 Seeking The Buck.

Can you see that Willing Foe is shorter (at 5/4) than he is in the betting forecast.

He meets our criteria.
I have found that the higher strike rate is reached on horses below 3/1.

That is not to say that we should avoid any horses over 3/1. They will probably be good each way candidates.

It will be interesting to see how Willing Foe runs today. It is his first run in a handicap, he has the able assistance of up and coming young jockey Frankie Dettori, and the 5/4 I mentioned when I started writing is now 11/10 with some bookmakers and evens elsewhere.

Good for the trader

This kind of horse can also be good for those of you who like trading horses on Betfair.

Why?

Well, If we notice a horse who has already been backed at 11am, and his race does not go off until 550pm, and he is the only horse in the race who is shortening in price, we can back the horse as early as possible, and hope that the Betfair price will reflect the bookmakers’ price and the horse’s odds will shorten as the day progresses.

Hopefully, we will be in a position whereby the price at which we backed mid morning will be shorter than the price at race time, allowing us to trade out for a profit before the race has even been run!!

So, watch out for all reds this coming week. As with anything new, make a note of those you see and paper trade.

Also, keep an independent list of horses priced below 3/1. I noted that they have a greater win strike rate.

I’m off now to get some goal scoring tips from Dean Sturridge

Have a great weekend

Clive
