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.
