    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. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    Did a little search and aside from the three recent arrested, guy has at least two other OVIs (DUIs) within the last decade. Rehab (mandatory) might actually be plausible.

    Edit: Also, ironically enough, he sued someone else for theft back in 2013.

    So how on earth is he a government contractor with all of those previous dui’s? Don’t they check that for gov’t contractor jobs?

    contrary to popular belief, you can do ‘things’ outside the law and still work for the government……you can even have a felony and get a security clearance.

    Based on that he now has 4 ovi’s in the last decade which now makes the last one a felony in Ohio . He could be looking at a 30 month prison sentence.

    Well at least everyone contributed some money to his defense.

    I wish his “friend” would come back and give this thread new life.

  • mambaland

    3k was not spent on his defense..it was spent on the liquor that got him drunk…unless he just tried to hang with tommy for a day

  • DFSx42

    yeah if Seth or his friend returns but posts somewhere else I hope the mods relocate it here :) it’d be a crime to start a fresh thread :)

    I just got an email from Seth Yates. He is putting on a luxury music festival in the Bahamas. 3k gets you a suite for a week and entry to the festival.

    Yes but the clearance would be quite low level.

    Man how has he not been found yet? I would have figured someone would have called him family or friends or driven over to his house. I just want to know what really happened at this point. 3k to ruin your life. Must have been pretty serious.

    He has a lot bigger problems at this point. If you think he’s sitting there worrying about the 3K I’m sorry.

    Nobody gonna get arrested stalking him trying to get 250 back.

    I dont care about the money, i just want to know the story and how it ends. Realistically I know we will never know, but part of me wishes he would just come back and tell us all what really happened and to F off.

    what about for 1k though Russ?

  • AVivier

    If this dude would’ve just said “demons got the better of me, I’ll get to you but gotta deal with this first” he would’ve got mostly empathy and time, instead he went all-in. That wasn’t good bankroll management.

    Nah i live too far away from ohio. I’d love to wake up with that 1k in my paypal one day but i know its 99% not happening. I can’t speculate one way or another of my wife isn’t going to start calling him though…..she PISSED

    Yes and no. There’s still people who have zero tolerance for people like that. Especially when they’re actively taking people’s money when they know exactly what they’re going to do.

    Well, I hope this thread doesn’t ruin the NCAA tourney pools. That would really suck.
