They had no trouble linking my a/c for the Transaction charge.
And I haven't even done the KFC thing.

Moon Light, was it name/house number type... or IP address?
Report heynoodles October 21, 2009 3:59 PM BST
They have linked ac's for pc despite lots of precautions being taken... and it can take months for them to catch up with you. Not worth it, imv
Report Moon Light October 21, 2009 4:05 PM BST
They didn't say how they did it, they just took the money; I had to ask for a statement and saw all my a/c's on there.
Report Moon Light October 21, 2009 4:06 PM BST
I didn't conceal my name though.

so, who's going to dare "refer and earn" anyone under this system?

you could refer a friend, BF could arbitrarily decide the accounts are linked and heyb presto, you're both getting shafted for each others' wins.

That may have happened imo :)

if they start using IP address etc, that would be a scary (Orwellian) development

Technology gone past IP addresses.

"IP address" = IP address, MAC address, cookies, etc etc

Theyve got a dedicated team looking for dodgers... 1.01 theyre tracking IPs

any updates on this?
do they link together two different people's accounts from the same IP address for the Premium charge?
Report Jimbo747 December 8, 2009 4:37 PM GMT
High stakes gamblers can change their name via deed poll, change address on voting register and open a different bank account, and change IP or even ISP if they wish.

what if your in a friends house. he has betfair and you log onto your own account from his house!

done this a few times while watching football
Report Jimbo747 December 8, 2009 10:26 PM GMT
Would take more than IP address. EG, all people using trading centres, some 3g networks or on large lan's will all appear to be on same IP address to betfair.
