tg5321 - what options are you looking at? I have sent emails to a couple of Dublin solicitors this week - waiting for responses at the moment.

Was looking at getting some professional debt collectors involved to start with.

A couple of things I'm not sure about are if it's better to use a Dublin based one, and secondly are they not paying because they simply have cashflow/money problems or just because they have no intention of doing so?

Let me know if you hear anything useful back.

This "company" owe me about £2.5k and I have met with the same nonsense that other seem to have experienced.

I have looked into the matter and it does not appear that SportsSpread are regulated by anyone in Ireland. I have contacted the Irish Revenue Commission, who apparently might be able to help. I am waiting to hear back from them.

Unfortunately it does appear to be the case that gambling debts are unenforceable in Ireland (there is new legislation coming in to rectify this). I was told this by Brian O Neil, and have confirmed this, who essentially said we don't legally owe you any money so tough luck.

I will let people know if I discover more, but I would not hold out any high hopes, they are clearly insolvent and it seems likely the whole company is a fraud.

Anyone got any further with this?
I'm not getting any joy with any debt collectors/solicitors etc in Dublin probably for the reasons outlined above.
If we cant get our money the least we should do is try and get O'Neil completely out of business so no one else can get screwed over.

No. My experience is similar - solicitors not intested, Irish authorities not interested. I might write to my MEP.
