and are shut down by the feds and I dont see anywhere that covers has been able to provide any info on them on how to contact them. I see they have been able to provide info for bookmaker though. So that tells me they are pretty much saying that beted is dead and people who had money in there accts can kiss it goodbye.

No, that's what YOU are saying, and you are jumping to conclusions.

We are saying that betEd got their domain hijacked by the Feds and haven't gotten back online yet.

We are working on getting more information, but it hasn't even been 16 hours yet and they understandably have more important things on their minds than responding to your hysterics.

Relax.

Is there any possibility that their website gets up and running by the end of the day?

Two points:
1) I love being tag-team heckled by two guys with less than a dozen posts. Next time, try not to be so obvious.
2) We approach every situation like this the same. Their site is down... how the darn can you expect us to advertise and recommend a site you can't even reach? When they get back online, they will resume their position on the list.

I joined BetED primarily on the recommendation of this site and Lou in particular in one of the threads.  I'm sure I am not alone in that regard. 

The fact Covers appears to be distancing itself from BetED and immediately removed them from their recommended list is troubling to say the least. 

I think regular updates on the status of BetED by Covers should be  mandatory at this point, even if there is nothing new to report.  At least state what has been done and what is planned for the future in terms of gathering information, attempting to get in touch with contacts within BetED, etc.

Stating that BetED has better things to do than respond to "our hysterics" is a slap in the face.  Really?  What is Covers doing in an attempt to gather more information?  Who have you gotten in touch with?  Who haven't you gotten in touch with?  Why is nobody answering your calls or replying to your emails?  When can we expect an update? 

Because you folks recommended them number one, your reputation is solidly on the line.  Instead of insulting posters legitimately concerned that they have been lied to and stolen from by your number one rated book, why don't you state what is being done on your end to gather pertinent information for your clients.

Lou has been regularly updating the forum post titled, "Update".

Its the top post that's pinned to the top of this forum.

I would hardly say that it's wrong to suggest somebody is jumping to conclusions when less than 16 hours after a problem was noted, they start making statements such as... 

"So that tells me they are pretty much saying that beted is dead and people who had money in there accts can kiss it goodbye."

I would describe statements like that as being hysterical.

I am sorry if you feel otherwise.

Y'all beted users (myself included) need to relax a bit here. I'm sure covers is doing all they can, they have an obvious relationship with BETED and they don't want to see that relationship severed. While I agree that it is funny that beted got removed from the top 10 as their website doesn't even exist at the moment thus no one could deposit anyway, I do believe that covers is working hard to get us good or any news. 

We are all on the same team here. Let's all act like it.

It got removed from the link at the top of the page but to the side of the covers home page it has them listed as 4,,,

Nonetheless I agree we're all in the same boat as of now,,,, And I have a nice chunk of change with them that I'm trying to build on ya dig?

Id still love to know why they are not answering their phones.  A domain being seized is one thing but they cant at least answer their phones??  Or even post a voicemail that gives a little info? 

 

Very disappointed

I am well aware of Lou's pinned and locked topic.  It has not been updated since 5/23/2011 10:24:54 PM which hardly qualifies as being "regularly updated".

I realize that you folks will update us if and when there is anything to report and there is nothing that we can do to force you to provide that info any quicker.  In the meantime, though, you should expect folks to want and request legitimate and timely updates, and perhaps, insulting those folks for having concerns is not the correct approach?  But please, do whatever you feel it is that you need to do.

I personally dont care what happens to beted I dont play there cause there site sucks and for these covers referees and saying I have no validity in my statements based on the fact that ive only made a few posts. Sorry guys but Ive been sportsbetting for almost 15 years and have seen the ups and downs with deposit options and payouts and how they have changed in that time and I can tell you I am pretty confident that beted will not be back in business in the US yeah you will probably be able to get your money or some other book will buy those names and accounts but the beted name is dead.... watch

Thanks to everyone doing what they can to get information. It is much appreciated... For everyone else, it's time to practice a little patience. Just stay calm ;)
