    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. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    all he did was post on the forums and tweet all the DFS Pros to try and get attention.

    I think that minimum price plays for 3,000 on draftkings should now be referred to as a Seth Yates Special

    At this point it just comes down to if someone catches up to him in person. Outside of that I can’t imagine he is going to be public anytime soon.

    They made everyone whole i assume. Maybe this guy can hack his PayPal and see if any funds are left.

    Nope— they did not make everyone whole. Still waiting on mine.

    1. Wait people got paid back?

    2. I would bet money his Twitter was never hacked and that it was drunk Seth.

    3. Hope everybody has a nice day!

    Seth didnt pay a penny back don’t mistake it for that. A tout? Site DFI reached out on twitter to pay people back to erase the black eye for the community.

    A lot of the questions have been answered…It seems the only really big one left is:

    Just how much involvement has the FBI had / continues to have in this whole thing?

    We may never know.
