    This happens very often, more so with the really big name players like Awesomo, Papagates, Yudacao, etc..

    Best thing to do is report them and get as many people as you can to report as well. The scammers just use the RG leaderboard.

    I bought one to try to get info about the person selling in. Or to make sure my computer was not hacked and he had my lineups before they went live.

    What does that mean? Can you explain further?

    They’re all over Instagram too. Right after I won the WFBC qualifier and uploaded pictures of me in San Diego, it didn’t take long for these phonies to start hitting me up on the site peddling lineups. I could tell they were fake because for one, I don’t recall them being in that particular game and that someone else had came in 1st-10th and not them. They weren’t the ones who won the hundred thousand dollar prize. One time one of the scammers claimed he won $250,000 the night before on one of the MLB entries when I was actually in that one and I think Awesemo came in 1st, JeffElJeff or whatever his name is came in 2nd, and I think a follower or member of Awesemo’s website doohickey came in 3rd (I could tell because the 3rd place guy had that stylized A logo from Awesemo’s site by his name), so I knew right away this scammer didn’t win that money, lol!

    They took that picture from someone else’s profile, or IF they did play, they screen shot the app, photoshopped the legitimate winner’s name from it, and put their name on it. Sometimes, they just painted over the header where the user name goes with the same color the background was and didn’t even bother putting their user name in, lol! They left it blank. That was a dead giveaway that they were bullshitting, excuse my Français. Some of their screen shots don’t look right too and doesn’t even look like what’s on the app either. I’ve used FanDuel’s and DraftKings on both Android and Apple and know full well how they are supposed to look like and some of the screenshots they have on Instagram don’t even look right.

    Then they’d sell you bogus lineups that don’t even make sense or win for that matter. You could tell the lineup isn’t good just by looking at it especially if you follow the sport. They have horrible players in the lineup that even the worst user on FanDuel or DraftKings won’t even touch, lol, unless you were Lakeishif, lol-I think she’s actually FanDuel’s test player making sure the site is working and always puts NS/DL baseball players on to ensure there is no big on the site. Sometimes when you send them the money, they won’t even give you anything in return. There are plenty of stupid people out there so desperate to win that money that they actually trust these idiots to give them money for lineups. These folks are like the Nigerian Prince’s of DFS.

    He’s saying he wanted to know if the guy actually had his lineups somehow.

    Pretty far fetched!

    Or if he could get some idea about who the person behind it is.

  • MickelC

    There are two solutions.
    1- Ask your friends to report (as many as possible)
    2- report the account to Twitter. They will ask for the verification on your claim.

    If these people put actual effort into something constructive they’d be much better off

    I would never, ever buy or sell a lineup…. I’ve just got too much of that “I’d never pick up a $20 bill off the ground, because if it were real someone would have already picked it up” efficient market hypothesis in me lol…

    Also i just want to be “right” so bad in life that it doesnt appeal to me to be right because of something someone else synthesized for me…

    All that said, I’d absolutely 100% pay for content, recommendations, thought processes, breaking news, books, videos, etc… learning devices… thats totally me….

    I’m just curious how the mechanics of lineup buying/selling even works? Like I know its not allowed…. how do people get away or profit off of it… like anyone who is making money at DFS …. why the heck would they want to sell their lineups and potentially be banned…. what happens when they go on a cold streak for 18 days…who the heck keeps buying their losing lineups…

    Do these guys charge a one time fee, weekly fee, what?

    I’d be absoutely terrified if i bought a lineup that he’d sold it to 45 people and the one day it finally hits I’m carving up the money and winning $374.82 apiece…. i just dont get it

    For cash yes i get it…totally

    but gpp? people buy these?

    Do you relaize you can just go into rotogrinders and eliminate two players and hit optimze and it wil give you 8 names lol

    Yisman – I appreciate you catching this. I had no idea that someone was impersonating me until a few days ago.

  • chronoxiong

    I’m still waiting for Fanduel to do something about the countless lineup buyers in cash games. They are more prevelant for NBA. For NFL, there are so many games that they are noticeable as much. But the avatars give it away.

    Sounds like an investigative team should hit hard on INSTAGRAM and whatever else is popular with the KIDZ these days on Social Media. This is crazy stuff, indeed.

    This failed to make it out of judiciary in 2013 — nonetheless “harming” could be read as many things. I ran across this (C-BELOW)…..

    There could very well be statues or laws on this depending on your state. The way I read this LAW, which DID NOT GET passed in W.Va., if it had PASSED….these people would be looking at a possible $250-$1K fine and a year in jail or both.

    Based on the wording for here, which of course it didn’t pass, I would think one could claim if their state HAS A LAW (I’d think all states or federal level would have these, but I guess not) ————- if their state has a law passed (HARMED) —- would qualify, right?

    They are HARMING the image of the person and making COIN off it —- I can’t believe this never got any push in the W.Va. Legislature….well, our state is so screwed up, I guess I can.

    Why buy a lineup for this? Just play Showdown.

    This is BS. I’ve reported, reported and reported again. I’ve exchanged emails with Jason Robins on this subject. I just started a new thread on this subject again today because, guess what, DRAFTKINGS DOES NOTHING ABOUT IT. AND, I’m tired of it.
