They were led to believe that it was the first division of India. They set up a stadium on a farm with floodlights to play at night and had a commentator and background sound.
The news is surreal. A group of Russian gamesters have been scammed by a felonious association that operated from India and set up a fake justice league to get their plutocrat. To do this, they hired a group of youthful people from a city, who were jobless or day sloggers, who were paid 5 euros per game and who pretended to be professional players.
They managed to wisecrack dozens of people into believing that what they were seeing live on YouTube was the top flight in India. Four people have been arrested, including the brain of the group, an Indian who worked in Russia and who set up the entire network for which they used a Telegram group.
A criminal organization in India has cheated dozens of Russian bettors
The deception was so good that they came to buy jerseys of the country’s professional brigades and had cameras, ambient sound and limelights for those games that were played at night. The land was a rented ranch where they had set up a fake justice colosseum and had also paid a judge who imitated the voice of the country’s great fibber. They came to play further than 25 games in this false league with which they could have won about 4,000 euros, according to the Indian police.
The’ poor’ Russian wagerers were led to believe that the matches were outfitted and that what they go would be 100 reflected in the matches.
