    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. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    So is DFI really paying out to the winners or are they just gaining free twitter followers/brownie points for saying that they are?

    It’s legit. They wanted to hopefully avoid a huge black eye for DFS.

    Hmmm… I DM’d them and get a response right away asking for me to post the details/proof of winning and it’s been radio silence for 48 hours.

    This might be the most pathetic thing of this whole saga. Scumbag is ramping up his DFS play, while not paying anyone out. Can’t argue he is only playing tickets or $1 contests anymore. Check out his RG profile for all his recent activity.

    Next logical step is his own DK podcast.

    Guy just needed a bankroll bump. Can u imagine if he ever qualified for a live final? I mean he’d have to send a proxy.

    I thought this thread would end at 25 pages.
    But the guy keeps playing.

  • Messiah717

    The money is gone. That’s all there is to it. I was also very sceptical that any company was going to step in and make good on the money. The game is illegal to begin with. Any company with a legal team or getting legal advice worth anything would tell them to stay away.

    It’s not like one DFS site bailing out another. This was an individual running a squares game on Twitter.

    The Return of Seth’s “Friend” cause…well he is in rehab.

    Or maybe he really doubles down and comes out with “Seth’s twin” for a live finale. That would be epic!

  • osuryanf

    The more this lingers out the more I’m mad for everyone that was scammed, winner of the squares or just a player in it.

    How can you post that ridiculous “this is his friend” nonsense and then continue to play on Draftkings? Seriously, what a CLASS A PIECE OF SHIT!

    I honestly hope someone finds him out and beats it out of him, because at this point he deserves it. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around how he can keep playing like it’s no big deal. WTF is wrong with people?

    Like, why wouldn’t you either A) unlink your DK account to your RG profile and/or B) create a new DK account?

    Woah Woah create another DK account? Pretty sure that’s against TOS and Seth is a stand up guy who wouldn’t violate the TOS.

    If he attempted to unlink his DK account to his RG account, he’d need to log into this website. At this point, he must feel that it would be more inflammatory to log into his RG account than to keep playing on DK.

    Need to think more delusional… Unlinking the two would hurt his RG / TPOY rank he’s chasing.

    How about DK take a stand and ban him?

    Dude definitely created a separate RG account through a made-up email address and is looking at all of this every day.

    He wouldn’t need a separate account just to browse/lurk. Just log out/private browsing.

    Which is why you need an IP log confirmation. “RG”? Just a yes/no would suffice. Even better would be the last visit date.

    We all know that the answer is yes. And it’s likely today.
