How I Was Scammed By This Person Providing Betting Tips


Dear blogger,

“Last week I received a message from on my phone with betting tips.It was a random message,I had not subscribed for tips. So I thought it was a good idea to bet for the games. They were 2 games with 1.5 odds in total. In the morning I received a congratulation message, I had won Ksh 300.Since I started on a good note I decided to buy the tips.I sent the Ksh1,000 the tipster was requesting for monthly subscription.

That day I was waiting for the tips to be sent, I waited from morning until evening and I didn’t get the tips.I hoped the following day they will send the tips, they didn’t. When I went online to confirm the till number which was on the message, I was unable to know the owners. I called Safaricom for reversal, I was told to report to the police. Since I knew police will take me round and round, I decide to give up on my Ksh1,000.

What confused me most is that the message did not bear the contact of the sender, I was completely perplexed because I couldn’t trace the person who took my money”

This is a common case among many Kenyans who are conned by people pretending to be tipsters. They send random messages with tips and after you have subscribed, they disappear with your money. To avoid such a scenario, make sure before you send money to any tipster, you know the phone contact, the number must be working—call to confirm. Also, go online to confirm whether the person has an active website. If the person is only available on Telegram or Facebook with no website, that’s a joker.

You also have to know the history of that person or company. For instance, Venas News has provided tips since 2015 which means it has a history.

Some people will come with sweet language that they are offering fixed odds, kwanza if someone tells you they have fixed odds, that person is a scammer. All established sites offer analyzed matches, no fixed odds. Again, if someone tells you they have 1,000,2,000 odds,500 odds—huge odds which sound unrealistic, don’t bother to buy tips from them. If someone asks for one off payment of huge sums of money, like Ksh5,000, Ksh10,000, Ksh50,000 etc to provide fixed odds, that’s an absolute scammer.

If you find a site with no original content, copying everything from another site, those are scammers. Just imagine, if this person can’t construct even one sentence, how can you trust him to deliver sure betting tips for you, does he even have the brain to comprehend the statistics involved?!!!
