Betting with Unauthorised Funds

Our betting, gambling and gaming solicitors act for individuals who have bet outside of their means, often losing their entire life savings. However in many cases, it does not stop there, and individuals may have lost funds which they were not authorised to bet with. This may include occurrences where betting took place using unauthorised funds such as family savings, trust funds, or borrowed/misappropriated money.

We can assist individuals in the recovery of funds which have been lost to betting operators where the source of these funds is not authorised. Betting operators are under an obligation to verify the source of funds with which an individual is gambling with. Where a customer earning a modest wage is depositing sums in the tens of thousands of pounds, clearly betting operators should be vigilant to the possibility that the funds are not entirely authorised or legitimate; however, unfortunately, this is not always the case.

We are able to provide advice and assistance in relation to disputes between individuals and betting operators in order to try to recover losses stemming from unauthorised funds.

Ellis Jones Solicitors’ Dispute Resolution team are specialists in acting for clients with gambling and betting claims. Our expertise in the field means we can act quickly and offer a reliable service to those who may be struggling with financial loss following gambling addiction.

We have experience of dealing with and resolving matters in a number of different ways and have been successful in doing so. Please call our gambling dispute specialists on 01202 525333, or send us an email to discuss your case and how we may be able to assist you in recovering your losses.
