Article by Charlie Wright
You know I’ve been banging on about my repetitive strain injury recently?
Well, I went to the physiotherapist the other day. I had to explain that I now spend a lot of time at the computer, which is why I’d developed the problem.
“So what do you do?” said the skinny twenty-something, tapping at my shoulders with what appeared to be a plug on a stick.
“I, er, write emails.”
“Emails, websites… stuff…”
“For seven hours a day?”
“I’m a sort of entrepreneur,” I said, suddenly feeling very un- entrepreneurial sitting there with no top on and my potbelly sticking over my belt.
Then he taught me some exercises that I have to do every 20 minutes I am on the computer. In one of them, I have to make a kind of twisted swan shape with my arm and wrist.
So now you can picture me… writing to you about home businesses… but every twenty minutes doing a funny little dance with my arms.
Where’s the dignity in that, I ask you?
Mind you… my life has always been ridiculous.
It’s just another example of my hapless life, really.
For instance, I remember the first time I bet on the gee-gees.
The tipster assured me that the horse would “walk it”.
It did. But all the others galloped. The horse was so good it took SEVEN others to beat him. Not that I minded the experience. I mean, it was the first time I ever saw a horse start from a kneeling position.
Since then, as you know, I’ve always been a bit dubious about making money on the gee-gees. There are a hell of a lot of tipsters out there, all claiming to have the system to beat all systems.
But have you ever seen a millionaire who made their money betting on horse?
No, thought not.
That said, I got an interesting email from a Biz Opp Jungler who reckons he’s found something that works for him right now.
The tipster was even PRAISED in the newspapers recently!
Will wonders ever cease?
An interesting email about Rothmans
“I have been using Rothman Racing for approximately 1 year.
His service is not cheap. It costs £50 at odds per tip, with anywhere from 1 to 4 tips per week.
“The service has been good, and like all tipping services it has its losing streaks, but on an equal stake basis I have definitely won money and would recommend it. I am not sure how long his information will remain good as there was an article on him in last week’s Express.
“In the article, they were praising him, saying that there are such things as genuine tipsters, explained how he is only allowed a maximum bet of £25 himself in most of the bookmakers and how some chains have banned him totally.
“It stated that his organisation has cleared over £400k profit per year for the last 2 years and describe how he had done it.
The silly thing is, this will just give opportunity for more wanabees and scam artists to claim to have his approach and contacts.
“I have had an issue with tipsters myself as I have tried many, but this one seems to be on the level, my longest losing streak was 9 tips in a row, off the back of 7 tip winning run, which meant I did lose some serious money because I thought the service was unstoppable and I got really greedy.
“But definitely based on an even stakes scenario I am way up for the year, and on an average week with 2/3 tips with £100 bets for me, I will be up £500, based on 2 winners and a loser.”
Thanks for the review!
Of course I’ve also received negative emails about other tipster services, which I’m not afraid to mention here…
Info on Lawrence Marshall and Patrick Wynor
You might have seen the fancy gold brochure for Lawrence Marshall doing the rounds. I haven’t tried it but I thought I’d pass on a few bad things I’ve heard.
One reader emailed me to say:
“Have just seen the reference to ‘Paul Howell – Tipping Service’ in your scam section. You might like to add the names of Lawrence Marshall and Patrick Wynor, as both promised the world, failed to deliver and, of course, managed to overlook the promised refunds even after the threat of court action.
“After my expensive lessons I found out that to ‘trust’ a tipster you should avoid any with a ‘Suite xx’ type address, make sure they are VAT registered and can accept credit cards – those who only take cheques should be avoided like the plague!
Good piece of advice there.
I also read this comment on an online forum, regarding Marshall:
“Used this service from June 2005 until 9th Sept. Result 17 horses given 9 winners, but of those 9 winners 6 were odds on which were not profitable. The other 3 short priced favourites.
Loss £250 plus subscription and telephone calls.
As always, I’m open minded about these things. So if you know different, then put us all right and leave a comment on the website.
All this chat about betting recently reminded me that there’s a great services you should take advantage of.
Find what really wins money
If you’re into betting systems and the like, there’s a guy called Clive Keeling who runs a great review service called What Really Wins Money.
If you’re sick of disappointing betting systems, this is a corker.
Clive is a life-long ‘betting geek’, who puts the latest tipsters and their systems to the test… and tells you whether they really work or not. He also offers advice, contacts and one-to- one support.
But it’s not just hard-hitting reviews. What Really Wins Money is also a little money machine in itself.
When you join, Clive offers you a series of betting blueprints that you can follow to make £18,000 to £35,000 tax-free in the next 12 months. All you need is a betting bank of just £100 and you’re off.
You can get these blueprints for free when you sign up for a risk free trial, and you get to keep them whether you continue to subscribe or not.
And if you DON’T make at least £18,000 in your first 12 months, Clive will give you back entire subscription fee back in full.
As far as I know, there’s nothing like it out there right now.
If you’re interested, you can read his promotion here.
