just under two years ago I registered with GamStop and I’ve recently I’ve been using my dad’s betting accounts to gamble and it let me deposit with my cards. I’m wondering since these betting sites are not allowed to take deposits from cards that does not match the betting account name holder, I’m just wondering would it be possible to recover the lost funds and if yes how could I go about doing it.

@ync5v1aemz I am saying this with real care and interest in the best out come for you...

You have somehow used your dad's account....  How did you get his password and username?  Did he give it you? Does he know you have a gambling problem?

Or did you use your dad's details to open a account without him knowing but use your card to deposit?

Now having regretted depositing and losing you want to find a way of reclaiming the money lost?

For the record, I don't think the gambling company has done well.  But that is not the point.

You have a gambling problem and no amount of refunds or exclusions will work until you address this and get help.

If the company does refund you will you walk away and live your life? Or will you just find another way of using the money for gambling.

I am not being harsh and I really am.on your side.  Please address the real issue and don't chase losses.  I did that and it cost years of unhappiness.

I wish you the best.
