The Age has a piece on the dark doings at the dismal end of the Canberra regulated betting shop Sports Alive.
Alex Bailey, who ran the company’s Canberra call centre, said that long before the liquidator came in customers were not being paid their winnings.
”At the end, people had been waiting up to six weeks … I had clients threatening to come in to the racecourse to cut my f—ing legs off and slit my f—ing throat,” Mr Bailey said.
Even though no money was being transferred to punters’ bank accounts, staff have confirmed that company managers were falsely marking customers’ betting accounts as ”paid”.
Mr Bailey said he believed this was being done to trick the ACT regulator, the Gambling and Racing Commission.
