I want to keep this subject up on the board as long as this problem continues:  About 6 months ago, Jay_E  posted a topic concerning nonpayment from WSEX.  Other members posted their experiences.

For me, it has now been over 10 months since I requested a withdrawal.  I know for others it has been longer.  All of us seem to have the same story, promises each month that are never kept.

I thought I would follow up at the end of this month and get their next promise.  Tried to call in, nothing but busy signals and unanswered calls.

I don't have a lot of hope for what I am owed, but I want to try and make sure others do not deposit money with these people.  It no longer matters the reason or excuses.  They accept money from people and obviously have no intention of paying us when we win.

So, to all our friends here, beware of these people and good luck.

There is a post about this on another forum where they say wsex is over 800k in debt in terms of payouts. Like you said, I wouldn't get your hopes up

Update:

WSEX has disconnected their Accounting phone numbers.  You can only email them (good luck). They still have phone lines for wagering and are taking deposits. 

Amazing that they are allowed to be a licensed sports book.

I'm owed $2,080 from WSEX since November 2011.  I called today and told them to credit back my account.   Now I simply have $2,080 of funny money.  I now use a local since I don't trust online sportsbooks anymore.  

I guess I will just keep it in the account until I here any further news of them starting to pay clients which I don't expect to ever happen.

I don't understand how they can refuse to pay so many clients.  I guess there's absolutely nothing anyone can do to resolve the issue?

WSEX owed over a million alone just to the people SBR led to them.  The overall actual total, who knows.

One WSEX owner is in prison, the other (Steve Schillinger) committed suicide last week; the company simply ran out of cash and had it's Antiguan gaming license revoked. They're done.
