Quite right - I wish there could more done to prevent tipsters making so much from the gambling industry in general.

Starting with sacking half of the supposed 'pundits/tipsters' that appear on TV coverage - most of them do nothing other than 'irritate' during their coverage. Why do they need often 2/3 extra pundits/tipsters, whining on...and a presenter ffs! :x

Tipsters who actually profit, while the punters would fail listening to them, are a blight on the game.

Technology is at a point where it would be easy to prove if somebody is lying or not or what their real track record is.

I've been involved in a few situations where I have tried to get money back from fake tipsters, traders or 'services' for people who have been ripped off. They all fell down at the proof stage. I know that Betfair can easily pull off records that show activity.

I asked them to do it recently for me and it shows 52 weeks of activity and 52 weeks of profit. Bet you there are few 'tipsters' or traders that can show that.

Yep, be surprised if you could find a single tipster who could show that!
