SafariBet refuses to pay young man after winning GHC57million at Sports Betting

Published

on

A young man known as Theophilus Morgan broke sports betting record in Ghana after he won almost $12 million at a sports betting company, SafariBet but the company has refused to pay him the amount he won and has deleted all of his slips from his account after blocking his account for several hours on the day he won.

Theophilus Morgan who has been betting for years now, would have been the latest Millionaire in the country after his 24 match predictions all blinked in ‘GREEN’ indicating that he had won, but unfortunately for him, the company he placed his bet at Safaribet.com has decided not to pay him the amount he won, with reasons that, he never won 220 slips even though there is a clear evidence to prove that he actually won the Ghc57 million.

Theophilus Morgan, the young man who won $12 million at Safari and they do not want to pay.

Morgan placed an accumulator bet on 24 matches which had a total odd of 261,833. He placed a Ghc1 bet on this accumulator which had a potential win of Ghc261,833. Morgan then placed this accumulator bet 220 times, meaning he spent a total of Gh220 cedis.

His predictions comprised of games from EPL, Champions League, Italy Serie A, and even Europa League. He placed a long bet which run from 7th November- 11th November 2018 and as he was expecting, all the 24 games won, making all the 220 slips win automatically.

GHbase.com has been told that, the whole of Nungua were jubilating when he won, and was getting ready to withdraw his money only to realize his account had been blocked by the betting company, Safaribet for obvious reasons.
Theophilus Morgan: He’s won Ghc57 million but Safari has refused to pay, after deleting his winning slips and has said they will only pay for one slip and even that until he signs an agreement to admit he never won Ghc57 million

Morgan then stormed one of the stores of SafariBet at Labadi to find out why his account has been blocked, and after several hours, his account was enabled again, only for the betting company to reduce his actual win from Ghc57 million to meager Ghc286,991.

The company had intentionally deleted 219 of his slips, so there’ no trace of evidence to prove that he had won such amount. We believe that was the main reason why they blocked his account, so they could alter things.

Social media users had already started spreading the first screenshot which showed the Ghc57 million in his account before the company made the changes.

Social Media started sharing screenshots of his winnings of Ghc57 million, but hours later Safaribet deleted his winning slips

People think Morgan has been paid his Ghc57 million but in reality, he’s not received even a pesewa of his winnings, as we’ve gathered that Safaribet has only indicated that they would pay Ghc286,000 which is not even close to 10% of the total winnings, he legitimately won.

In a second meeting today with Safaribet, Theophilus Morgan was hoping to walk away with his money, but the company had said, there’s no evidence to prove he won Ghc57 million (Of course, they’ve wiped all his winning slips in his account, leaving only one) and that they will pay him the Ghc286,000 on condition, that he signs an agreement that he won just one slip and not 220 slips.

It’s funny that a big company like Safari wants to act smart. Even if you intend to pay him the Ghc286,000 why force him to sign an agreement? Do they get people to sign agreements before they win?

One of his winning slips, there are more slips with different bet ids to prove that Safaribet intentionally deleted his slips from the systems after freezing his account for hours

It’s obvious, Safaribet knows, they are not doing the right thing and want to find a way to silence him and so are offering him that peasant amount when he should be getting his Ghc57 million.

As it stands now, Safaribet is not willing in anyway to pay him the Ghc57 million and will only agree to pay the one slip of Ghc286,000 if he will sign an agreement, to admit that he won only that amount and not Ghc57 million.

Theophilus Morgan and his lawyers are shocked and have expressed displeasure at how Safaribet wants to outsmart him, considering that, each time, he loses his money while betting, no one calls him to sign any agreement or anything of that sort.

There’s evidence to show that, Morgan has been losing bets several times, by placing more than 200 slips in most occasions and he loses, but in all of that, Safari never said,  ‘oh you’ve lost soo much, come for your money‘ so we are surprised someone has won and it’s becoming hard for them to pay and then go ahead to delete his slips, to make it look like it was just one slip he won.

We would follow this story keenly and share the update with you on whatever decision is reached.

Menzgold managers trying to flee Ghana; some got deported – Staff alleged

Published

on


Staff of Menzgold Ghana Limited claim some of their management have tried to flee the country as clients agitate for their locked up funds.

They added that 13 of the management members, the names of whom they listed in their statement, tried to leave but were deported.

“We confirm the travel plans of management members outside the country. Some tried and have been deported,” the staff said in a statement.
The staff of Menzgold also accused management of conniving with some persons within the government to secretly pay off selected clients of the company.

“We confirm that Management members are secretly paying off clients without a proper schedule and with assurances to other clients. This makes their act suspicious, and unfair whenever money is made available.”

“Powers in governance are aiding persons to retrieve funds but these same powers are reluctant in seeking the best solution for all,” the staff added.

The staff, who say they have been working for four months also claimed that”management has started selling off assets for personal gains and also to settle their close friends.”

The staff believe the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) must now probe the matter.

“Management members have fraudulently acquired properties such as luxury houses, schools, flashy and luxury cars and many more, to dwindle the finances of the company. We therefore wish that EOCO investigates them.”

Menzgold’s troubles began when it was asked to suspend its gold trading operations with the public by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Menzgold had been dealing in the purchase and deposit of gold collectables from the public and issuing contracts with guaranteed returns with clients, without a valid license.

This, the SEC said was in contravention of section 109 of Act 929 with consequences under section 2016 (I) of the same Act.

Aggrieved Customers have been protesting the company’s failure to settle them.

Menzgold’s rates were said to be as high as 10 per cent per month and 120 per cent per annum.

The demonstrators submitted petitions to the company, Parliament, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other authorities.
