Betfair/PaddyPower incompetent/dishonest bet settling

Post by bengie » Thu Aug 15, 2019 2:26 pm

Please give the following as much publicity as possible. Paddypower/Betfair have broken their own rules and incorrectly settled ante-post bets placed on POWER OF DARKNESS for the Goodwood Golden Mile (run 2nd Aug). The horse was initially entered as a reserve but failed to get into the final field as all the others runners stood their ground. Under the rules of both firms all such bets should be declared void and stakes refunded but both firms have not so far as a matter of course done so. The rules are unambiguous and unequivocal. This has already been made clear to them on several occasions since their error was identified.
For reasons only known to them they have so far refunded some but not all bets. The situation is a complete embarrassment and should be give the maximum publicity it deserves to highlight the total incompetence they have shown and moreover the contempt they have shown to their clients as follows.

1. Initially incorrectly settling all bets.
2. Initially, when made aware of their error not accepting they were in the wrong.
3. When they eventually accepted their error and refunded on one bet they subsequently have not as a matter of course refunded everyone. They need to be brought to account and explain why.
4. In the latest conversation with an account holder yet to be refunded they said they cannot help as the bet was placed in June !!!!!

Feel free to share, copy, publicize at your will, everything stated is factual and can be backed up with evidence.

Hi Bengie,

Thank you for your post.

Are there any screen grabs or photos you could share of unsettled bets?

Been doing some enquiries, this link is worth a look: https://twitter.com/BallotedOut/status/ ... 25089?s=20 According to this Power of Darkness was not balloted out. Does anyone have other evidence that suggests this source is incorrect? There should be in PPBF has refunded some bets?
