Fixed Matches - The Big Scam

Fixed Matches - The Big Scam

2018 Jun 4

Want to buy fixed matches on Facebook to get huge and quick gains without any effort or risk? Then read what we have to say to keep your money safe!

The sale of fixed matches on Facebook is still preferred after years although it would have been normal for any punter to realise that it was just a big scam. It is rather sad to see that the punters have not yet learned their lesson and still fall for these scams, and that's why we decided to come up with another article on the subject. We will keep it short for those who do not have the patience to read until the end.

A Logic Exercise


First, let's do a simple math exercise. Most of those who sell betting tips on Facebook ask between € 2 ( Paysafecards ) and € 100 (leaving aside the big “sharks” who ask for 500-1000 euros). Most of them have fixed matches and very high odds (at least 10). It's fairly obvious that if you have a match that you know it’s been fixed, you will scramble for money and find €100 to bet!
If you have a "no chance of losing" prediction (that's what they all say, don’t they?) and high odds, if you bet 100 euro, you will earn 1000 euro, hence 900 euro profit. If you have such a gain then why would you sell that tip for 2 euros? How many suckers can you find? Let's say 100 (anyway), so 2 euros x 100 customers is 200 euros, a sum that takes some time to make because it has to be posted in groups, on various profile Facebook pages, etc. Well, if you have fixed odds 10, we think it's 10 times more convenient to ask for a 500 euro loan.

If you bet on high odds and earn 5000 euros you can return the 500 euros you borrowed and get 4500 euros profit. And you will certainly find 500 euros to borrow when you have a 100% sure match. Okay, suppose you have match-related information, you have that money, but we still take into account the other case. Everyone who reads this article puts you in this situation: you have safe odds 10 what will you do? Will you borrow 500 euros from someone and bet them to earn a profit of 4500 euros or will you try to sell it to 100 customers to win 2500 euro? Everybody will, obviously, choose the first option.

Here a scammer might come up with this argument: "I have the money but I'm limited by the bookmakers". Even though it would be absurd to be limited by all the licensed bookmakers (hard to believe, but let's say it’s true), would it be hard to persuade a friend to open an account and place a bet for, let’s say, a commission? If a friend came to you and asked you to “open a betting account HERE, I give you the money to deposit and bet, and in the end you get a part of the profit" , would you say no? Volunteers can be found at any time, so that argument does not hold water.

Not Anyone Has Access To Safe Tips


Secondly, the fixed matches do not spring up on Facebook. Yes, there are quite a lot of matches, but only some people have access to them, obviously not all the scammers who sell tips for 2 euros. The more people find out that a match is fixed, the higher the chances for an investigation to start. That's because there will be many who will bet on a certain outcome, and bookies will label the match as "suspect" because of dubious betting tendencies. Also, the more people know about a fixed match, the higher the chances for someone to report it to the authorities. So would anyone involved risk giving these safe tips away? We don’t think so.

Most of the arrangements are not made on high odds as they circulate on Facebook. Let us tell you why. To fix a match you need at least 5-6 players. From a team you need players to take it easy in the first half and from the other team you need players to take it easy in the second half. Those who fix the matches do not take risks, because they pay money for that and additionally they bet or sell the tips (but for tens of thousands of euros instead of 2!!!!).

So there's nothing to risk. It is much more practical to place bets on average odds that depend on 1-3 players in a single team. For the "red card in the match" there are good odds and you only need a player to do something to be eliminated. For "penalty in the match" there are good odds and you just need one player to produce the penalty. A "bomb" such as a favourite team losing is risky for the simple reason that those who fix the matches do it with 2-3 players from their favourite team, but if the other 8-9 play very well then there are risks.

You can also easily arrange bets like "goal until the 10th minute" or "over 1.5 goals in the first half scored by a team" because even here, if you have arranged with the goalkeeper and 1-2 defenders, the job is done. Those who take advantage of these fixed matches pay considerable sums and have large sums to bet, so they do not necessarily need 20+ odds (HT / FT) to make a profit. We do not say that there are no fixed matches such as 1 half time / 2 full time, but not daily and again, they do not spring up on Facebook. No page is saying that it offers only fixed matches.

Fixed matches - Scams On Facebook


In addition, Facebook pages may be misleading, here is a list of scam methods:

1. On Facebook one can change the date of a post. For example, we can now post on our page fixed matches from a few days ago. Then tomorrow we say that we gave you some free matches a few days ago and now they have to be paid for. It is very easy. Yes, the number of likes can be tricky as well. Let's be serious, there are plenty of sites where you can get likes very easily, automatically.

2. Comments like "I bought it from them and they’re trustworthy" ,"I also received a free tip from them and it was good" etc also trick the people. If you ask a friend to leave a comment like this do you think he will do it? Probably yes or else it's not rocket science to make other 3-4 Facebook accounts and comment to your post. So such comments should not be trusted.

3. Posting winner slips from the past also attract a lot “clients”. The scammers change the date, you see the slip and think you hit the jackpot and buy from those who have that page. Let's be serious, there are many groups and pages that post slips, it is not hard to get 2-3 such tickets and post them on your page by changing the date.

4. Posting the winning tickets immediately after the matches also misleads the punters. It is not a big deal to post now on a Facebook page "we have a fixed HT / FT match today at 20:00" and after the match ends the ticket, of course a winning one, is posted. How come? Well, we have nine possible results for HT/FT. In a balanced match, all the bets will have odds of at least 4. We bet on each of them and then post the winning option, possibly changing the stake in the Inspect Element.

5. Many say that bet slips placed with offline bookmakers can not be falsified, compared to the online ones that you can modify if you have some Photoshop or Inspect Element skills. We saw scammers posting slips they pretended they had placed in an offline sports book, but such slips were actually printed out. Most of those seeing the stakes, big odds and gains omitted the most important aspect: that the slip was fake.

6. Lack of negative comments - many say they bought tips from a certain person because there were no negative comments. It's simple: they were deleted.


One thing we can suggest is not to be fooled by these scammers because the only one who loses is you, the one who puts his money at stake. You lose the amount paid for the betting tip to which adds the bet itself.

To get rid of scammers, do not hesitate to report the Facebook pages that deal with selling 100% safe tips.

CONCLUSION: There are no 100% fixed matches, at least not on Facebook!
