How often do soft books do identity checks
« on: September 13, 2017, 12:51:48 AM »

Hey Everyone,

Sorry if this has been asked before (I haven't come across it)

I plan to try matched betting with UK bookies using a VPN while using my non-UK credit card to fund payment (I cannot use e-wallet due to territorial restrictions)

 How often do soft books do identity checks? I've read in the terms and conditions that it may happen. But, is it likely? often? definite that they will before a free bet or withdrawal?

Thanks you SO SO much for the input

Mike

I should also add:

- I plan to get a UK address (a purchased, real address used by many for mail forwarding)
- I plan to get a UK phone number for registration purposes
- Plus a VPN

Avoid. Sooner or later a bookaker will ask you to receive money in your bank account. Can you handle this?
Avoid VPN also because many, i mean many, people are using it for gambling reasons. Your IP might be matched with someone else's.

- I plan to get a UK address (a purchased, real address used by many for mail forwarding)
- I plan to get a UK phone number for registration purposes
- Plus a VPN


Do you know how many people used that mail address for gambling reasons?
I suppose that your risk score will not be good from the very start. Read more here: http://arbusers.com/index.php/topic,4504.0.html
As for the VPN and your mailing address, read more here: http://arbusers.com/index.php/topic,2550.0.html

Since the new gambling regulations came in, nearly every soft book asks for ID as soon as you make a withdrawal.  They normally want ID, front and back of card used to deposit and recent card/bank statement, and a utility bill for address proof.

I just dont see any point on voluntarly identify or have any communication with support
For example one bet wasnt paid and it was pending, i  asked support, and i was limited right away. Or just giving documents right away could end of limiting sooner
I will end up limiting sooner or later

thanks for the replies.

sounds like it'd be too much trouble... and too risky without the ability to back it up with documentation
