Guys I don't have any news from them for almost a week. Initially they had a message that they were down for scheduled maintenance but since Friday the site is completely down. I hope that the bookmaker is not disappeared-this will be a big loss for many of us

Seems that things are not good for any of us and probably a BIG loss for many of us that we were using Sportsalive.

I just came to inform you about another BANG.
As Portman said, sportsalive is down for "scheduled maintenance" (yeah, right). The bookmaker with the Aussie licence is not here anymore. I don't think we have any opportunity to get our money back.

Big loss for me :-(

Anyway, I'm healthy...

I received a letter from the Austrialian company.
They inform me about the liquidation etc. A lot of papers. I just sent them an e-mail asking them what exactly they want me to do.
They replied after a few hours that in this stage they don't want anything from me. They informed me about the exact amount of my account and if they'll have any (good I hope) news, they will inform me.

I think that Australian goverment and their laws are good reasons to hope that we'll receive our money back.

Cretan just have a quick look on that...There is a guy under the nickname asanque who is chasing the issue. We have formed a syndicate with over 70 punters who are owed money from sportsalive and try to get the best. We also consider a class action against ACT. Send him an email and add yourself to the list he also sends updates to punters etc.

I received an email from TomWaterhouse.com (an Australian bookie) informing me that they had set up an account with the same name and password (the SportsAlive liquidator must have sold my details and password to them FFS! And it looks like SportsAlive had very weak security concerning passwords !! >:() for me with approx half my SportsAlive balance.

A nice wee bonus I thought.

However, in order to withdraw you need to get your account verified. When I attempted to do this the web site told me it was only accepting Australian customers. Which means I can't get my account verified which means I can't withdraw which means there is absolutely no point in any overseas account holder gambling with TomWaterhouse.com as they are not gonna see any winnings.

I also received a mail from this fucking whorehouse.
Of course I sent them an angry e-mail. I can't believe that after all this time they sent a mail with username and password.
They tried to explain that this was a way to believe them etc etc, but still I can't understand how unprofessional are the Aussie bookmakers.

Of course they gave me 250$. I prefer to take 0 than taking this shit for account balance.
But still I can't accept that they stole my money and I'll try to get them back
(hm, I think I just heard Melina Merkouri)
