Revealed: The Cheap Betting eBook Goldmine
For a wide selection of e-books, some of which may prove value in the coming months, go to http://www.emediadirect.co.uk . There are many books for sale here at a one off cost of around £20, and although some titles include “1000 Atkins Diet recipes” and “Easy Ways to Make Money”, some of the titles relating to gambling are very interesting. I was particularly taken by the Forex Profits ebook which was surprisingly good and offers a moving average strategy for forex profits. If you combine this book with free software such as metatrader, it can give you a very cheap exposure to the potential profits of the forex market. The free software is available if you google metatrader, and I will gladly give you tips to help you set up this software for maximum effectiveness as it relates to this ebook. The strategy is workable, but reliance solely on moving average signals, without the right checks and confirming signals along the way, could be dangerous
There are a couple of interesting horse racing and football pools books which I will work through in the coming months, and for the price, I don’t mind if I’ve bought a couple of duds.
Take a look at www.fat-wallets.com/13.html: This guy is offering some FREE betfair systems in return for referrals to a specific site. Take a look, and if you like the offer go ahead. These systems are free, and I would guess they’re trade related. So if you’re a newcomer to the betting exchanges and you want a grounding, take this offer up, and also look at http://www.betmatching.co.uk -I only wish I’d found this site previous to recommending the trading manuals, as the basic principles of trading are all found here. The information, considering it is free, is of a good quality and, more importantly, is APPLICABLE. So, with nothing to lose, take a peak here, and perhaps sign up to the newsletter. I’m yet to receive my first newsletter so can’t gauge the quality of the information therein.
Small Field Scam Alert!
With the benefits of the e-letter coming into its own, I was able to relay the following possible scam in a timely fashion as soon as I heard about it. You can sign up for free at http://www.canonburypublishing.com/wins
It came about from 2 readers who asked for information pertaining to TOP TIPS RACING SERVICES. One reader told me they had given him a winner recently in Tax Free. Obviously happy with that, he asked if I could enlighten him. The other reader asked me about the same service because he had received a losing bet.
I decided to look at the race in which Tax Free won – the 430 Goodwood on the 9th September. What immediately struck me about this race was the size of the field – 5 runners! Not immediately suspicious until you marry that in with the fact that another reader was tipped a loser in the self same race.
This may be one of those scams most suited to small field races. Ie: a tipping service contacts 5 different sets of prospects and gives each set of prospects a different horse in the same race, safe in the knowledge one of these sets of prospects WILL WIN (no doubt they’re hoping the outsider does the business). HORSE 1 wins, so the tipsters then contact all prospect who theygave horse 1 to, with a follow up communication regarding their services – “ See we can pick the winners, and there’s more to come!”
A very simple scam, and even more workable if, as I suggested, the bigger prices win – and it could nearly have been the case with a neck separating Tax free from the 2nd and a neck separating the 2nd from Beckermet, the 14/1 outsider.!
Beware Dodgy Millennium Club
I feel I should comment on this company’s offer to put bets on, on your behalf, stakes requested from £200 to £20,000. They purport to invest the money on your behalf for a return monthly. You are not allowed to take our stake money out for a certain period of time. Alarm bells ring here because of the nature of the business. Handing over cold hard cash to strangers does not make for a rosy future. Checks must be made, questions must be answered, and the greed must not be allowed to cloak your common sense judgement when it comes to entering these types of relationships with no contracts, and no ombudsman should things go awry. Avoid!
The Glossy Brochure Brigade Are Still at it!
In front of me I have an offer from a Mr Jonathan Wells – you know him – yes – THAT Jonathan Wells, the renowned, erm, tipster who we’ve all, erm, heard of. Oh how my heart raced when I read the opening gambit . . .
“ I have sent this letter to you on the understanding that all clients who chose to follow my advice for just one calendar month are Guaranteed to make at least £47,000”.
Well, I missed out on Paul Howell’s offer to make me £75,000 per month. Perhaps I should consider Mr Wells who’ll guarantee to make me £282, 000 in only 180 days – I could have the mortgage paid off – happy days!
But let’s get back to reality here. Are you still taken in with this gubbins? Perhaps it’s the £40 charge to make you £47,000 in one month. If I could achieve this, I would ask for 15% of winnings after the first month, payable when your £47,000 target has been reached – far more money making potential and my customer carries no risk, bar the stakes.
The obligatory long list of winners is included (well I wouldn’t expect anything less!) and I wish I’d joined on 1st August when he made his clients £21,200 from 3 winning bets (although he has glossed over the fact that you would have had to stake £1000 per bet TO WIN ONLY) to achieve this profit figure. Now I don’t know about you but staking £1000 to win on horses priced 14/1 and 9/1 takes a LOT OF FAITH, which I just don’t have.
These tipsters are very clever in their wording, but they do seem to use a generic format in their mailshots. Look out for
· Strike rates in excess of 80+%, especially with high priced horses
· Lists of winners with a rare losing sequence. -Why have they not Photostatted their bookmaker bet
Outrageous claims to make you 10’s of thousands a month for an initial outlay of £40 to £50 (just
imagine if he’s mailed this t a list of 100,000 and got a response of only 1%!)
• The use of PO Box numbers
· Unwillingness to offer a free trial
· Proof to the Racing Post (which is a pointless exercise – the Post is a newspaper and NOT proofing service
· Testimonials it’s impossible to check up on
· A picture of a man in a hammock in the Bahamas, or
driving a Ferrari
Recent culprits include Tony Chapman who cleverly attributed a quote made about JP MacManus to himself as “the most fearless gambler of the century”, James Murphy, who we just can’t check on his relationship to Vincent O’Brien the legendary (dead) trainer. Further he purports to have insider knowledge from Ballydoyle – as I showed on Saturday, you don’t need insider knowledge about one of the greatest bloodstock/stud operations in the world. I backed Gstaad, winner at 25/1 and Beauty Bright, winner at 14/1, purely because they were from Aiden O’Briens Ballydoyle.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is. If you have a number ask questions like “If you can make me £40,000 per month, how much will I need to stake? How does your guarantee work? Why aren’t you asking for a bigger fee? Can I speak to existing customers? etc” Remember, questions are your weapon.
