Scheme warn­ing

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Of­fice of Fair Trad­ing is warn­ing people through­out the re­gion to be wary of sports in­vest­ment schemes. Fair Trad­ing ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Brian Bauer said sports in­vest­ment schemes or com­put­erised gam­bling pro­grams were pro­moted as “get-rich quick” schemes. “These pro­grams sup­pos­edly pre­dict ac­cu­rate re­sults, usu­ally of sport­ing events, and prom­ise high re­turns,” Mr Bauer said. “Once you’ve paid your money, you’ll quickly re­alise the sys­tems do not work out as promised, don’t deliver the ex­pected re­turns and the sup­plier won’t as­sist.”
