I need help..... (literally too but thats another story)

Hi All,

This is my problem:

In Australia, you can't gamble (via internet) on "In Play" matches. You have to do it over the phone, which takes waaaay too long if your trading the peaks & bottoms.

I need my computer to tell betfairs software that I am in a country other than Australia.

I believe, and have been told, that this can be done but am unsure as to how.

Would anyone be able to help? Would be really appreciated.

Cheers
Trev

    You'd have to use an off-shore relay proxy, and one from a country that did not have an agreement with ASIO. But if ASIO or AFP had any suspicions, they'd monitor your activities at the source - your ISP. An occassional flutter is good fun, but I'd not like to take a flutter with my freedom.
  2. Thats cool, thanks for that.... Where do I find these offshore relay proxy deals???

    Not my field, mate.... I have to work with ASIO. Please look elsewhere.
  4. What is the jail sentence for that?
  5. There is a program called "anonymity gateway" which works by hiding your IP by using proxys in various countries around the world. It's quite a good program but mate, is it worth the risk? Gambling your money is one thing but gambling with your freedom is another! I say rethink the whole issue and save your money for a PC upgrade! (or whatever you fancy)

    This may help... You didn't say what state you are in.

  7. Not work the risk. plus asking about it on a public forum is bad news
  8. As a Libertarian, I'm glad to see someone offered this guy some advice... it's his damned money and if he wants to risk it gambling, he should be able to.

    F da police!
  9. Thanks to the one person who actually gave me some info on it. Cheers for that

    Thank you all for the concerns about my prison sentence, however, you're all just a little delusional.

    ASIO, AFP, QSP, The FBI, the CIA, the FSB, the Mossad, the NKVD can all check my computer when they, there is nothing on it to hide..... & if they want to monitor what I do, then thats fine too & IF, in their infinite wisdom, they decide that I should go to prison for re-configuring my PC so it does what I want it too well i'll go heeee.

    Seriously guys, back to reality now.

  10. I wasn't concerned about your potential prison sentence, I was just curious what a sentence for something like that might be. It doesn't really matter though because I don't live in Australia and I don't gamble.
  11. Well i thought it was the gambling company that was restricted from allowing an Australian in that country to bet? Wasn't aware that HE was actualy committing a crime if he found a way to do it.
    I'm assuming this "not worth the risk" that people are mentioning is from illigaly using some proxy that you shouldn't have access on?? Are people just assuming the laws here or do they know what law/crime is being committed. Further what if he uses a proxy that he has legal access to use?
    Course i'd assume that if he won big and the company found out he had been in Australia when he won i'm sure they would wave about the terms of service and demand the money back
