5Dimes Fraud Claims Continue

Share with your friends:

We initially reported on issues with 5Dimes credit and debit card deposits back in early January. Users have seen fraudulent charges on their cards appear after depositing at the sportsbook. Since that time, more allegations have surfaced on sports betting forums, such as Reddit’s /r/sportsbook and Sportsbook Review Forum, but apparently, those posts are being deleted and altered by moderators.

Not an Isolated Incident

Issues with users finding unauthorized charges on cards they used to deposit at 5Dimes have been going on for at least over a month. A recent Reddit thread, by the user, “gregmav1” spoke about his own experienced with fraudulent charges on his cards after depositing at 5Dimes and chronicled past complaints.

Considering the frequency of complaints over the past two months – we have concluded that they are legitimate. Redditor, “themandrew007” saw fraudulent charges appear on a credit card that he only used to deposit at 5Dimes.

He made a deposit at 5Dimes for $500, and over the next few days, he saw an additional $600 in fraudulent transactions appear on his card from AT&T and Time Warner Cable. The user stated that he uses Verizon for his cell phone and FIOS for the internet.

Even before all the issues with charges on cards started happening, some users reported back in November that they had been the victim of identity theft. Their data was an exact match to the information that they entered at 5Dimes – it even included a misspelling.

Is Management to Blame for this Scam?

Of course, 5Dimes continues to be silent on the scam, despite the mountain of evidence that users depositing with credit cards are getting hit with fraudulent transactions. However, their silence is a different matter than indicting management with some credit card scheme where they are selling users information to third-parties.

We don’t think that is happening.

With that said, there are undoubtedly problems at 5Dimes and their payment processors. Users who make deposits are regularly seeing their cards hit with fraudulent charges that number from several hundred to multiple thousand dollars.

There clearly needs to be a change with the company that processes their credit and debit card payments. The issue may be with rogue employees stealing customer data as well, a hack from an outsider, or a combination of all three.

They also need to address the issue publicly. SportsbookReview.com and other industry-leading sites need to step up and report the facts.

Been a Victim of 5Dimes Fraud?

It’s important that you immediately call your credit card company or bank and report the charges if you are affected by the 5Dimes credit card scam. In almost all cases, they should be successfully removed from your statement, and you will not be liable.

Contact us at Safest Betting Sites. We are interested in hearing your story, as it appears that few other sites are reporting this news, or worse, actively trying to suppress it. If you can provide evidence of the fraudulent charges (while protecting your personal information) – that is even better.

5Dimes has been one of the best sites in the history of offshore sports betting, and while they are still paying all players in a timely fashion – this needs to be reported. We have posted a warning on our 5Dimes Review and have removed their affiliate links from our site.

If you’re still interested in depositing at 5Dimes, despite these issues, we highly recommend that you use the crypto-currency, Bitcoin, where you don’t have to give out much (if any) sensitive information.

    Sportsbook.ag is slow rolling my $4,900 bitcoin payout. I’m trying to find the proper site to report them. I keep getting emails that it should “happen anytime soon now” This has been going on for 2 weeks now. I am very concerned that I’m not going to be paid out.

    I have 2 checking accounts and a savings account from the same bank. I have only used a debit card for my second account strictly only for 5dimes deposits. I do not keep a balance available in that account ever. Today (March 4, 2017) I noticed I had 2 “telephone assisted transfers” into the account I used. These transfers totaled over $1750 dollars, and there were 2 transactions for the Apple store in Garden, NY totaling $1652.23. These guys took my debit card, called the 800 number, and transferred funds into the empty account. I am blown away they can accomplish this.

    My father also has an account and both his cards were hacked 6 weeks ago as well. This is a big problem, and its unfortunate because I really liked using 5Dimes.

    5dimes got hacked into or they stole my identity. The only thing I used my card for was with 5dimes and now unauthorized, fraudulent charges are being made. They have everything of mine. Address, social, phone number, everything. They can steal everything of mine. I’m freaking out. ?

      Exact same story here. I have a card I hardly use for anything, and that’s what I used to deposit at 5dimes.

      Recently had to cancel the card because fraudulent charges appeared.

    Credit Card fraud is running rampant at 5Dimes. I have been an account holder for many, many years so I have used well over two dozen credit cards to fund my accounts. Many of the cards never leave my home and are only used for my gambling pleasure. In December of 2016 I started getting fraud alerts in the middle of the night on my credit cards for use all over the World. It didn’t happen to my cards all at once but slowly one by one every night it happened to a different card until every card I ever used at 5Dimes was compromised. It was definitely tied to 5Dimes use.

    I first contacted the head honcho, a guy named Tony who many people have heard crazy stories about. He was very pleasant but wouldn’t go as far as admitting the seriousness of the problem. He advised me to switch to Bitcoin. I then contacted a guy named Billy who was the manager of the Credit Card Department at that time. Billy admitted privately that they were experiencing a serious credit card fraud problem and to not use credit cards for deposits until it was fixed and under control. In mid February and after two months and new procedures put in place, Billy gave me the all clear to deposit through credit cards once again so I did, but this time I just limited it to two cards so I don’t ever go through the hell I experienced in late December again. Everything was fine until about two weeks ago and then it happened again with the first credit card. Yesterday, it happened again with the second credit card. They do not have it fixed and do not know how to fix it. It is either an inside job or it is occurring as a result of the processors or merchant accounts possibly selling the info.

    After the first new credit card got compromised again a few weeks ago I immediately reached out to Billy and he was gone. After 7 years at 5Dimes he disappeared. If you ask for him, they just say he no longer works at 5Dimes and it’s probably has something to do with all of this. See, he was honest with me unlike everyone else who is instructed to act like nothing is wrong and credit cards are safe at 5Dimes.

    I reached out to Tony again and this time it was a very different story. He didn’t deny it this time. He was actually extremely apologetic and basically said they don’t know how to get it under control even though the new credit card manager “Lynda” is still denying it to everyone but the truth is getting out that it is happening again and it is widespread. You definitely cannot trust the new credit card dept. manager Lynda. She will be of no help to you if you experience credit card fraud. Well, thats the story. I wish I had more positive info but it is what it is. For those of you not wanting to believe it or are being told a different story, this is something you have to take very seriously. Good Luck!

    Yup, got hacked a couple mo. ago—finally got new Visa and tried to deposit. [Only used it this time and never left the house.] It was declined and the next day there were fraudulent charges again.
    5D says it’s Visa/Chase’s problem….deflecting.
    Now to wait for another one and deal with late fees from utilities/autopay

    I posted back early April and since then more fraud has occurred. After some new credit cards were used at 5dimes because I was told the problem was fixed, I had even a bigger problem occur EXACTLY like Wes’s post on March 4th.

    I was sitting in front of my computer and received an email from my bank that my contact info was changed as I requested so I immediately contacted my bank. I was told that someone calling in using my debit card info and personal info which was only disclosed to 5dimes, was successful at getting my phone number changed in order to take some control over my debit card. Additionally, at that same time a charge for $19.95 came through from Trans Union where my credit report was being purchased so I immediately started to try and shut that down. Unfortunately, the damage was done at TransUnion because they already downloaded a copy of my credit profile to a fake email address used by these thieves. If that wasn’t enough, as I was dealing with TransUnion, these same people were then able to get enough info to log back into the checking account tied to my debit card and do two quick wire transfers out of my checking account.

    I had to close the checking account and deal with changing all my direct deposits and bill pays that come out of my account and now I have to deal with identity theft because that is obviously the next step since they have everything from my credit report.

    Unfortunately, 5dimes has no clue and appears to have even stopped trying to fix the problem. They are back to denying and deflecting and only Tony Williams will admit to it, if you can get to him and he’ll apologize like he did with me but really, what good does that do anyway. You have to either switch to BitCoin or just fund your account through MoneyGram. What a mess!
