It looks like he's got a foot in betting. Is this a good thing?

Has done for over 2 years on his site. most advantage play forums hate MSE for taking up all the best offers, as there are that many members they get all the info first.

On the BBC he comes across as whiter than white.

IMHO he's not .

So why does the BBC think he's the dogs' hangers?

The bank charges was an embarassment to him, esp after as it pretty much down to his campaign that everyone got excited, applied to courts and expected to see their money before even the court case had reached a verdict on fairness. Thats a lot of time and small claims court fees down the pan. Prob not his fault, as I doubt anyone expected the decision, but every day on GMTV he'd be waving a huge erection in front of the cameras whenever the topic of bank charges came up. Comes across as an annoying t!t imo, probably like I do.

MSE I take it you mean Money Saving Expert...the website that started the first goalscorer debacle? How that was brushed under the carpet I will never know.

Is this the guy that also recommended putting savings into icelandic banks because they offered the best rates, weeks before.... BOOM!
Report Eldrick December 12, 2009 12:02 AM GMT
his page about putting money in savings accounts said "you can stick £30k in each bank if you want to stay the right side of the FSA guarantee, but frankly a bank is never going to collapse so I just keep all my money in one big lump"

this was swiftly removed when iceland went into meltdown

Awesome quote:


Fairbot is the business - how come it was never discussed here before

I wonder if Betfair know what has hit them !!!!

Clearly understood what they were getting into :D

a couple of years back i ran an online casino

we were desparate for new customers so offered new customers cash-back on their deposits. payout was by cheque with - as i recall - a 6-month delay

MSE picked it up and we recruited thousands of new customers

almost none of them actually played beyond spending their initial deposit

6 months down the track we had a team of people mailing out cheques to those who could be bothered to contact us to remind us about the offer

i admire the guy - not too many people on the side of the little guy in today's corporate world

he jumped on the bankcharges claim long after we had the first cc wins. As did many other and now they have nothing to go on.

I reckon that for every £100 Fairbot stake on a book value of 102%, everyone who has done this has lost about £4.

I'm not sure how many times I clicked submit.
That's the best case scenario assuming no other players are voided.


Can I withdraw my betfair balance down to £0 such that I end up with a negative balance upon settlement and then refuse to pay betfair on the basis that their "all green" screen was misleading?
