The Words of the Deep Source Match-Fixers

Last spring, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a number of documents from fixers at the heart of the latest sports corruption investigation that resulted in dozens of players and match-fixers being arrested in Spain https://www.bbc.com/sport/tennis/46822784.

I did not publish them as I did not want to jeopardize the investigation, but now here are a few pages.

Note also that this is only a couple of pages of information about one match-fixing syndicate. The deep sources and their documents speak about a number of other match-fixing gangs. I am not publishing any of this information, in case, law enforcement decides to move against them.

In this document I will reveal information concerning a few syndicates and individuals operating in Europe. Their most prominent violations with which I am acquainted are: match – fixing – organizing and facilitating, identity thefts with the means of creating online banking accounts and sport bookmakers accounts, corruption in corporate organizations – banks, online wallets and pressuring bookmakers employees. I present the people in question in sections and I will note connections between the syndicates.

The tennis fixers – “Armenian organization”

This organization has been running for at least 3 years and are involved in hundreds (no less than 300) of fixed ITF, ATP challenger manipulated events every year.

Some of the members:

Players’ profiles:

Mostly low level players, with some connections with higher level players which they try to keep secretly so they don’t risk getting exposed. The organization also use players from their organization to help them recruit fresh ones.

A scenario of account creation, betting and corrupting a tennis player:

It all starts with making sure that they have all of the accounts and means to be able to bet on the fixed event.

1. Photos of people’s ID are gathered. Done by a third source – people get paid to provide photos of their ID, alternative ID and Selfies with the ID
2. Email, Skrill and betting account are created. For the Skrill account the organization is using a corrupted Paysafe employee in order to get the documents verified.
3. Before the corrupted event, syndicates members are scattered across betting shops around Europe (predominantly Italy). They are waiting for a signal and information from X.P on what to bet.

There is more, much more… About several other match-fixing gangs across Europe working in football, tennis, basketball and a number of other sports.  Sigh. Welcome to sport in the 21st Century…
