Girlfriend and Matched Betting
My GF (Yes, GF, Not "friend", budgie or cat) is needing some extra cash. I have suggested MBing to her as a way of doing that. At the moment she is not 100% sure.
If she agreed the scenario would be
I would provide initial funding for her.
ALL profit would be hers to keep and spend how she liked.
She has no "non work" access to a pc (currently we are living at different addresses) and doesn't wish to change that situation so I would need to do the bets for her.
At the moment I have one pc and internet connection and have registered with a number of books on it. I have also been limited at some and closed down by one.
Am I on potentially dodgy territory here? Is this a minefield that could blow up in my face? I see mention all the time of "the OH's account" but I guess that doesn't make it right though.
I know it would be far better if she did her own bets but I very much doubt she would want to take the time to do so.
Or should I give up on the idea?
Just to confirm that this would be for my girlfriend and definitely NOT anybody else real or unreal and she WILL keep any profits herself.
Sorry but this thread will be closed.
The pros and cons of doing APing for someone else are discussed here:
Doing advantage gambling for someone else?
With Andy's / TGT's stance on it discussed through the thread. At some point in the future we may release an official 'policy' regards discussion of multi-accounting on the forum by users of the forum and start enforcing that policy (it has been under discussion for literally years but it is such a grey area generally it is hard to agree on what is 'right') - but for now that ^ thread is as close to a description of our opinion of it as exists anywhere.
Generally though discussion of 'OH' stuff (not to mention obviously multi-accounting / gnoming in general) is NOT permitted on the forum - if you do that then keep it to yourself please - or much better still get your OH to actually sign up and take part in the forum!
