After the first event picks, we have already receive several reports on possible wager frauds. Those found guilty will be dealt with accordingly.

In the future, if you detect any suspicious activities by users, please use the "
Report suspected wager manipulation" found at bottom right corner of the user's "Financial History" information.

We will need everyone's help, especially as this site continues to grow, in detecting any and all possible frauds.

Thank you.

it would be shitty becuase my girlfriend plays and we share a comp. and my friend in texas, his gf plays too on his comp. but i emailed the sight and told them about it.

p.s.- i love how both the gf's ranked higher than me from the last event. sigh. i am shamed.

Don't ever doubt lady luck.
It's similar to March Madness brackets. How many women do their picks with phrases such as... "Well my uncle Bill went there so I have to pick them." Or, "My second boyfriend dumped me and graduated from that school so they have to lose." We've all heard them before.

I think it's good that you guys added this option. I'm sure that self-policing will be very efficient in coping with fantasy fraud.

I also noticed that some fights have minimum odds (Silva/Henderson is 2/1).

I know cause I tried 500 for 300 and it wouldn't let me!

That's good and will ensure that nobody gets incredibly favorable odds.

Because this fake money is worth so much to them?? People have got to get over fake illusions of wealth. It is seriously getting sad. Its the same with Post Whoring. Where does your post count get you in the real world? I have yet to see either of these on this site so i think we are on a decen track.

I completely agree with madmark, that is just sad and pathetic, just kill yourself if you got to make a fake account to give your life meaning.

If you feel the need to cheat on an on-line fantasy league you should be banned for life. For those cheaters that have a life.
