Ben Waldman Denies Involvement With Delinquent Payment Solution

Responding to Gambling911.com Monday disclosure that  payment solutions company, Smart Banking Systems (SBS), was screwing over online gambling clients in Costa Rica, software platform provider, Ben Waldman, contacted Gambling911 to insist he was "innocent" and had nothing to do with the nonpayment issues.  He also became the lucky 70th individual to threaten a lawsuit against the Gambling911.com website.

"Now my name is being dragged through the dirt!" he said.

The problem is that he chose to conduct business with and provide a platform for one Chris Conner of SBS, who one sportsbooks operator referred to as a "complete scumbag" who owes a few hundred thousand dollars to his betting firm.

Conner also left a rambling message on our voice mail declaring his innocence.

"He (Connor) has the screws, it's the rest of the components he's missing," said the sportsbook operator owed a few hundred thousand dollars.

In fairness, it appears that Waldman helped drag Connor out from the woodwork.

"What can I do to resolve this matter?" Waldman asked.

The answer to that question is a simple one:  Make sure these operators get paid - or - at the very least - make sure Chris Connor pays them. 

Waldman commented on our article Tuesday.

"This is the Ben Waldman in question. It is not an alias, it is my actual name. I have never "disappeared", and for the past five years I have been available from 8:30 AM - 6 PM EST, at our offices in Montreal. Neither myself, nor my company (ContactPilot Inc), have anything to do with the business dealings of Smart Bank Systems, nor have we ever "represented" them. Contact Pilot provides software as a service (and the support of that software) to call centers, quality control agencies, and merchant service providers/processors. I invite your questions, particularly those from the author of this "article"."

Since passage of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA), the online gambling sector has had a tough time finding "reliable" processing companies in which to conduct business with.
