The slow payments at once highly regarded World Sports Exchange (WSEX.com) continued this week.  Players requesting information from the troubled wagering establishment out of Antigua were for the most part ignored.  News also broke this week that BetCRIS.com had stopped making transfers with World Sports Exchange.

Wrote one member of the SBR Posting Forum:

"I emailed WSEX for information on my withdrawl from 2/24. last 3 weeks I got standard we don't know yet and will tell you when we do. this week they did not even return my email."

Founder Jay Cohen once regularly and openly criticized competitors for "isolated" slow pay incidents and "player disputes".

One forum owner was even prompted to make draw this comparison:

"Jay Cohen is turning out to be the Jimmy Swaggart of online gambling."

Swaggart is the non-denominational American pastor who was involved in a high-profile 1988 sex scandal.  He is famous for his public outcry: "I have sinned against you, my Lord, and I would ask that your precious blood would wash and cleanse every stain until it is in the seas of God's forgiveness."

Three years later Swaggart was discovered yet again with a prostitute, all the while preaching from the pulpit and judging others the same way that Jay Cohen has judged others throughout the years.

Cohen, Gambling911.com should point out, was never involved in any sex scandals.
