Hello all,

Could somebody help me get my money or put me in touch with a rep on the forum?

I signed up to Mr Green, deposited €100 or so, a few deposits later I requested a €110 withdrawal. Mr Green then asked for KYC and blocked my account? I sent everything in and they asked for a selfie of me holding my passport to finish verification. I sent this in and then nothing, no response. I have chased on email and on chat and they are just ignoring me? I dont really know what to do in this situation, they are simply attempting to steal my money and completely blanking me?

Could someone help.

Thank you very much.

I've never been asked for a a selfie of me holding anything. Maybe I'm just so ugly that no one wants to have nightmares after a KYC?

Anyway as CasinoNinja asked it depends a bit on the time frame. There might not be anyone there on weekends that handle docs.

All KYC was supplied two weeks ago. They accepted everything and then requested a selfie. They have not responded since, its 14 days since the selfie was supplied. They are simply ignoring me?

Is there a rep from Mr Green on here?

Check the Rep list, you'll see that @Mr Green-Redbet_Customer supportRep is the rep account you are looking for.

Unfortunately I believe their response will be to use their "internal ADR" service. That's a bit of an oxymoron but there it is.
You were absoultely right. They said their internal complaints would deal with it. Their response was criminal. They ignored the fact their team had referred two weeks ago all my docs were fine and just wanted a passport selfie. They simply stated my docs were invalid (Did not specify which one and have previously accepted them all, minus the passport selfie) and stated they were going to attempt theft and keep my Deposits!!!

Ive checked on the forum and with the EU portal and now Mr Green is actually breaching EU consumer law and attemting to steal.

Does anyone have any suggestions on which route to take now to recoup money as I have fallen into a bizzare twighlight zone with these cowboys where logic doesnt seem to make sense?

ADR or EU court I suppose?

For future reference @Mr Green-Redbet_Customer supportRep was beyond not helpful

Here is the response from the rep.

Ignoring the fact I have emailed proof my docs were verified (attached) and all that was outstanding was a passport selfie. I sent this and not once has Mr Green commented on this?

@Mr Green-Redbet_Customer supportRep ?

Disgusting email from Mr Green.

Out right saying they will not tell me what document they deem to be invalid (can only think they didnt like the passport selfie as everything else was accepted) and their response is to block me from everything and state they will be stealing my deposits? Breaking the law.

Is there anyone on this forum who could advise on a blue print to recoup the money in this instance? All documents supplied have of course been 100% valid and original so Im at a loss here.

Well, they've told you what you need to do - you could also open a PAB here ("Submit Complaint" above,), which would probably be a worthwhile step.

Given they have asked you for extra ID (e.g. selfies - they've never asked that of me) - there must have been something to concern them, and they are content enough with their response that they have directed you to their regulator.

Have you followed the chain of events?

They asked for the selfie having confirmed they had accepted the Passport, POA and skrill screenshot? What was concerning lol. They wouldn't of verified the documents if they were 'concerning'.

The PAB process is pointless with Mr Green or any site associated with Hills having researched on this site, not because the PAB is no good but because the group does exactly what Mr Green is doing here.

No point doing a PAB, they won't discuss player accounts with Max.

@philiphewson are you playing under UKGC rules or MGA?
If UKGC then they can't withold a withdrawal but not sure what the position is under the MGA license.

I've followed it, yes. Something following your selfie didn't add up to them, and for whatever reason they are confident enough that they feel they should withhold your payment and retain your deposits. They've advised you to go to the regulator. Realistically, there's little more you can do.

Jungle spins who have a UKGC license are withholding £545 of my money because I refused to do a SOW and closed my account.
It was my understanding that if a player closes their account any funds must be returned to them (unless criminal activity is suspected) but I'm still battling them and have wrote to their ADR and am waiting on their reply.

Did they not like my haircut lol??? It was just me in my garden holding my passport?

A business cannot withhold a customers money if they refuse the customer their business. That is theft and against EU consumer law.

I have been advised that like Mr Green in this case are breaching EU consumer law. Committing theft basically....I have read ECOGRA do not do much and won't make decisions based on actual law lol. They advise court. MGA replied to me and just said go to the ADR or take legal route......But Martin Lewis site advises you to try and stay our of EU court due to fees and time it takes for resolution.

Im in europe unfort. But EU consumer law still stands.

Is there anyone on this forum more versed in this? Like that guy who runs Justice 4 Punters in the UK.

Consumer law stands, but doesn’t override their other legal obligations.

If you’ve been to the MGA already, your options now are ADR or taking formal legal advice.

Im sorry mate but you're talking utter tripe.

Consumer law and law supersedes any flimsy bull crap Ts and Cs. Theres no further legal obligations relating to this matter. Its black and white, Mr Green (As they OFTEN do) are attempting to steal smaller deposits as they know it will cost the player more money to chase then the money locked....Its theft plain and simple.

Well, it’s not theft. You gave them the money to let you bet for one thing.

You’ve been through their complaints process, and they’ve advised you of the remedies available to you.

They’ve also advised you the same in what appears to be a PM up there; it’s bad form to post PMs, by the way. But I doubt they’ll mind, as it’s just reiterating what you’ve already said and been told.

They’re not going to change their position for what they clearly believe to be a valid reason.

Your options therefore remain - complaining to the regulator, contacting their ADR, or taking formal legal advice. Posting on forums isn’t going to change that - they’re big enough to not be concerned about negative comments here.

There is also the option of writing it off and moving on; it really depends on whether what you’ve lost is worth more than it’s likely to cost you to resolve this. And remember, even if you go down the legal route, there’s no guarantee of it working out in your favour, or you not having to pay costs.
