BetVIP is not responding to communication.

Believe it or not......this was posted on this forum last year by betVIP when Bitcoinlivebets went missing:

BetVIP:
The owner of Bitcoinlivebets has clearly absconded. This is the problem when dealing with services which are NOT transparent and you have no idea who is running it. Anonymity is great but it's here to protect the users - not the business owners.

Anyone affected by this is welcome to come over and register at https://www.BetVIP.com, we are the only licensed bitcoin sportsbook, and as such there are regulations and systems in place to prevent issues like this. Our management is completely transparent and we have been featured in the Wall Street Journal among others.

Next 20 users to post in this thread today the 16th of July only with their account name at BetVIP.com will receive a 0.01 BTC FREE BET. Place it on odds of greater than 1.5 (or 0.5 excl. stake) - if you win you can withdraw it, no questions asked. We also have our famous 100% sign up bonus up to 1 BTC should you wish to deposit,

Kind regards,
Daniel Schwartzkopff
Managing Director

Well I requested my funds around 7 or 8 hours ago.
I have received nothing.

On top of that, I was told by  Schwartzkopff on twitter yesterday that the reason the site was down was for maintenance:
Now we are told today  it's for 'administrative reasons'
It can't be both.

We can't say that until after June 30th...the date they say we will have all received our funds by.
Personally, I don't see why withdrawals can't be processed as they are received.
Why a two week delay?

"On the plus side, BetVIP didn't take the money and run."

Why do you write that?
Have they paid anyone?

The last I read they weren't letting anyone withdraw till the end of the month.
That sounds very sketchy and doubtful imo.

Any stalling in such cases is usually a sign that no one will be seeing any money whatsoever.

I hope tonyq and their other 8 customers get their coins back, but I agree 100% with your comment.

With Fairlay you have the option of creating an account or betting in the same way that it's done at DirectBet.

In a Question and Answer session with BetVIP founder Daniel Schwartzkopff published by Bitcoin Warrior last year, the following exchange took place:

QUESTION:
 Now, one of the big problems with any Bitcoin business where someone else holds the private keys is that there is nothing to stop the owners to just up and disappear with the proceeds. We just saw this with Evolution, the dark market. What guarantee do you have for the folks using your site that this won’t happen?

ANSWER:
In the past there may been an element of mistrust in bitcoin, with anonymity being one of the real barriers to players and consumers feeling safe.
BetVIP decided it was time to bring transparency and legitimacy to this industry, so we became the world’s first fully licensed bitcoin operator. This means that players know exactly who we are, where we are registered and they can put a face to the name of this company.
With our license comes responsibilities and legal repercussions for any illegal or fraudulent activity. We’re absolutely open with all of our customers so they can be guaranteed a safe gaming experience.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does that ease the worries of anybody waiting for their funds?
It doesn't ease mine I'm afraid.
Especially as Mr Schwartzkopff conducted a management buyout just hours before the site closed.
