888 fine; where next

This is the place to discuss abuse of your identity information by bookmakers. Why should you submit a 'selfie' of your passport page? Why should the quality of scans be refused when they are high quality? Why should the border around a scanned picture be so important? Etc.? Etc.?

888 fine; where next

Post by Jimmy Justice » Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:05 am

We've managed to get the Press Association to ask us for quotes when big stories break, which is fantastic, because they distribute a lot of stories to medium sized and local press. This is an example from yesterday:

As you can read a slightly different take on the 888 story, especially the final paragraph.

Hopefully, edited versions of this story will hit the local press to add to the major coverage in the nationals and on the BBC.

Well done Jimi loved this bit...........Mr Chappell said:
Interestingly, our experience outlines that when gamblers win as opposed to losing, the 'Know your Customer' processes are very different."People are frequently asked for additional ID, including copies of utility bills, passport photo pages, even proof of income, before winnings are paid."

Now that is the truth and the more press interest and exposure the better.!

Can someone explain why providing the utility bills, for example, is necessary for this?

Apologies for the delay; I'm away. The logic is that utility bills help to prove your ID. It's up to everyone to decide whether this is the case or not.
