Jimi i received your e mail Re your first 17 months in business,i am assuming this was sent to all Reg supporters.? But i do feel that you should post it on here and on all racing - betting forums.Do not be modest mate there is no need,because all punters should be made aware of the good work you JFP guys are doing on our behalf.

It is a given that this is already understood and appreciated by some of us but we need the many on board to aide the future progress,and any punter reading of what you have achieved already under lets be kind and say "difficult circumstances" should feel impressed and grateful and also able to sign up as a supporter.

Cheers mate you and your peers give hope.

I especially liked your final para.

ps: Apologies to any hard working on-course bookmakers and independent
bookmakers, both online and in-shop who’ve got caught in the
cross-fire. That never was and still is not our intention. If you run
your gambling business in a fair way you have nothing to fear from
‘Justice for Punters’.

Lets get some of these guys on board if they will take a fair bet and conduct themselves in a decent and honorable way then they can have my business and i would expect also that of many others.

Thank you. This the full text:

"If we’ve been unsuccessful in helping you get your money back from a gambling company we apologise. There are many reasons why this happens and we are doing our best to close as many unfair loopholes as possible. As you all know it’s going to be a long job, however we are now inside the ‘right corridors of power’ to carry on our campaign to bring fairness to everyone who gambles.

Today is a day to celebrate, because we have reached a great milestone. It’s just over 17 months since we launched the website. We had no money, we’ve been offered some since, but refused it. We think it’s most important to remain robustly independent. The milestone is:

£400,000 being returned to customers (this is the amount of money we’ve helped customers obtain that was being kept unfairly from them with no good reason or evidence being provided). NB: Well over 50% of this money involved online casino websites.

As the founder of ‘Justice for Punters’ I would like to thank everyone who has given their time as a volunteer on our behalf, whether that has been providing: Free advice for gambling disputes; free media advice; free media coverage; preparing for and meeting with organisations like the Gambling Commission, which has meant not only giving a day of your time, but paying your own expenses; and for that matter anything else that anyone has done, e.g. free web support.

You might be amazed, but I would also like to thank the tiny number of corporate bookmakers (two to be precise) who have actively worked with us to solve three or four disputes. To those gambling companies and their PR representatives who’ve blocked us on Twitter or banned their staff from looking at our website by blocking access too it from their company intranets; all I have to say is, grow up. ‘Justice for Punters’ doesn’t mean ‘Injustice for Gambling Companies’, although for some of the companies who only run casino websites I wish it did: Some of these websites, truly are the worst of the lot. How do you live with preying on vulnerable people day in, day out?

I’ve no intention of signing this, because it’s wrong to single people out. All the people who have helped know who you are and some people know who I am, that’s all that counts. To the companies who challenged my identity when trying to withdraw money online 2-3 years ago I hope the other companies come to get you for ruining the perfect environment you all had to trade unfairly, because the ‘cat is now out of the bag’ and times are only going to get fairer for the customer; quite right too.


ps: Apologies to any hard working on-course bookmakers and independent bookmakers, both online and in-shop who’ve got caught in the cross-fire. That never was and still is not our intention. If you run your gambling business in a fair way you have nothing to fear from ‘Justice for Punters’."

This is the link to where it is on the website: https://justiceforpunters.org/complaini ... customers/

Part of it is also our pinned Tweet: https://twitter.com/gondorffhenry/statu ... 8032902144

I haven't had time to add it to our Facebook page yet. Mind you I never have time for Facebook as well.

This has been important work and continues, but we all hope that our work behind the scenes with the Gam Comm, Comp & Markets Authority and the Dept for Culture, Media and Sport will bring about the changes that should be made to make gambling 'fair and open'. We do think we have reached a tipping point and are hopeful of some major changes in the next 12-24 months, however it was clear at the DCMS that they have only been hearing the gambling lobby arguments (they are badged by these leeches weekly, if not daily), so a re-education process is needed.

https://www.racingpost.com/news/news/wi ... ing/328261 I note that the HBF are mentioned but lets not forget the great efforts of JFP which will have played a significant part in raising awareness and "encouraging" WH to implement the above.

Thank you.

We're not bothered who gets the credit and there is no chance of the Racing Post asking us for a quote. We are seen as being too dangerous and not part of the establishment. We're very happy with that, as no change was happening until we begain to expose, in the general media, many of the disgusting practices of gambling companies.
