BitcoinLiveBets.com (aka Bitcoin Live Bets) has been down since July 12 and players are pissed. There are reports from plenty of bettors who are waiting for their:
- pending btc withdrawls
- pending World Cup bonus payment
- winning bets to be graded
And of course their are some players who kept a balance at BitcoinLiveBets that are apparently also screwed. I do not recommend anybody leaving a balance at any bitcoin sportsbook. Payments and wager grading are very fast from the better bitcoin sportsbooks – so there is no reason to leave a balance. The
person asshole running the BitcoinLiveBets Scam has not responded to anybody and is currently MIA. Since July 13, 2014 the website has stated:
Short maintenance work. Back in a few hours.
This temporary maintenance notice is a joke, considering it’s been over 8 days without any announcement/statement from this “cpompany” or the owner. This is nothing like the Bitbook.biz closure, where everybody was paid. If BitcoinLiveBets.com owes you money, let others know about it on this bitcointalk.org thread and the amount they owe you in this thread.
Also – I just noticed a week before shutting down and running with the money, the owner was actually selling shares of the company in .5% increments. This red flag almost suggests this whole “shut down” was planned to scam as much btc as possible from people.
