    So Seth Yates ran 3 SB pools on twitter. Took 3 K from all different people via PayPal and Venmo and never paid out the winners. He hasn’t tweeted since Super Bowl Sunday but has been active on RG as early as yesterday. I wasn’t a victim but he just screwed 3 K from members of the DFS community and maybe some people in this very forum. He was an Active poster on RG and also wrote a few columns in the past. Anyone hear anything? The guy use to tweet everyday all day and now nothing. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    If you run a business and have to collect on invoices it’s very easy. Lots of deadbeats out there.

    Okay, that makes sense, I could definitely see that. If you are doing this from a personal standpoint, you have issues. Can’t stand people who threaten to sue everyone over every single little thing.

    Always hard to tell. There are some knuckleheads dead serious about it on here.

    Don’t forget that Maroon 5 likely sparked this whole situation.

    Just look at the writing style

    Once I stopped laughing at how ridiculous it was, I went back and looked at some of his postings, and yeah, it was obviously him.

    Gonna give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn’t see me make this joke like 8 pages ago.

    Why the HELL have you been in a position of having to file a dozen small claims cases in your life and threaten hundreds more? You either associate with the wrong people or are WAY too litigation-happy. I’m guessing the latter.

    Deadbeats who do not pay their rent… i used to own rental properties they will give you every excuse in the book not to pay and it takes MONTHS to get them evicted…meanwhile htey are going to the bar, buying shoes, and have the latest iPhone somehow

    and ive been treasurer of an organization where people thought it was okay not to pay their obligations….

    litigation happy? No it’s a waste of my time and a pain in the butt….trust me id rather beat the crap out of someone but sometimes money takes precedence… suing someone over outstanding debt is not beneath me.

    I also booked for years. So generally i went to their parents for the money. If that didnt work i usually just drew artwork on their vehicles until i felt we were even. I also broke into a lot of houses and took whatever i felt made it even….. i never felt great about doing it that way as im more of a face to face guy….those were usualyl last resorts

    If you’re trying to get hired to collect from Seth… this… this is not the way to go about it

    That’s all pretty cool….

    But I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    “Seth” and his “friend” right after he posted…………..

  • fighton2016

    How about we all do this. We screenshot where his friend said he doesnt have a phone. take another screenshot of him playing DK. Send to DK.

    Maybe his friend used his account to play which is a clear violation of TOS and we get him banned from DK. Sounds like a proper punishment.

    If people pay their debts it never comes to that…. if someone were to file a civil claim against Seth to recover the $1,000 he owes them, would that be wrong?

    I mean the guy has committed either a high misdemeanor or possibly a felony here… id much rather someone file a civil suit against me then report my crimes to the police. or beat the crap out of me…

    $3,000 is enough to get killed over my god…

    if we get him banned from DK how will he ever win enough money to pay people back?

    This I don’t understand. Even if Seth Yates runs a pool from a state with legalized gambling- I’m sure he would have to pay fees and taxes and have a state license to do so.

    I don’t see how anyone could sue him. It was probably illegal gaming. Am I wrong ? Did you get a receipt on what it was for ?

  • bucherpsu08

    A civil suit on money won playing an illegal gambling game? I don’t think that would end real well.

    You take him to small claims court. Frankly the legality system is fishy. I understand people think its all good, but what makes office pools legal is usually it is an intrastate game. I doubt everyone that played was from the same state, which makes this a federal civil or criminal case.

    It depends on whether or not he took a rake. In the past, when he ran the game legitimately and paid out 100% of the winnings, he didn’t take a rake so that’s not illegal.

    You could likely argue that set an expectation of this being a zero rake game, and that he just stole the money (legal for you, illegal for him since he stole the money, but the game itself was not illegal).

  • Bam79

    A civil suit based on the gambling would go no where, but he did commit wire fraud.

    I am in Awww…… Sounds like we have a lot more in common then I thought… I too can’t stand a Dead beat, or a snitch… Guess it is all how you grew up… I only wish I grew up in the Leave it to Beaver household… In place, it was Biker Town !

  • Quadhole

    Those waiting to get paid should just put it on the back burner for a year or two, ask for money plus interest and give the guy a chance to make money.
    Either that, or he comes out, works for 18 hr in OHIO, lives at home and sends you 1$ a month for 1000 months. If he has 2 kids to pay for, no money, etc. and the expense of rehab, he may be getting better, but in reality, he is fuked for a long time financially. He is being punished !

  • chuckyduce

    Yates responsible the rain at Riviera as well?? Food for thought.

    Writing style is a huge giveaway. Its a very good tool to use.

  • Jameson12

    Wasn’t someone saying he was a losing player anyways………..so a ban would probably help him.
