Account verification with Skype
« on: October 16, 2018, 03:21:55 PM »

Have you ever had someone verify your account via skype in such a way that the bookmaker wanted to see it on the webcam?.

I have not yet passed such a verification, but I am asking if someone has passed, as it is at what bookmaker?.

If they did it, their reputation would go to zero. But some bookies just dont care like 1xbet that kustef mentioned.

I think books will only do that if they suspect something dodgy with the player.  No biggie is it really.

It is complicated enough as it is for average punter. I would not do a video verification in every bookmaker i want to place a bet. If they put video verification they will lose a lot of new business, plus customer support costs would go up. I dont think is a good idea for them. More to lose than to gain.

I dont think they will implement this without legal regulations.

Legal regulations might not be stopping bookmakers from using Skype as a verification method. There are 2 reasons for that:
1. This action will be hidden behind the moral curtain of anti money laundering. This is the easy excuse that many already use or even misuse.
2. Bookmakers are regulated/based in several countries/districts and some of these countries might not really care of what bookmakers do to their clients as far as fees are paid timely.
What is going to stop bookmakers from using this, is the wave of disapproval of these practices. They will be rightly defamed as this is a major invasion is people's privacy.

As a side notice I have to tell you that this discussion is going on for some time now among bookmakers. There are some companies, mainly in the big data and internet security sectors, that lobby really hard for this kind of verification.

People will just bet on bitcoin sportbooks. So the bookmeker managers will be the only ones playing with video verified accounts.

One of the best BTC bookmakers(sportsbet.io) ask friend of mine to do live verification,so they gave some company permission to do live verifications even he send them his ID+selfie before,so never say that they ll not do it when they are one of the first that implement such verification
