New York Attorney General Letitia James has a warning for New Yorkers about online sports betting scams.
AG Letitia James wants New Yorkers to be weary of ads circulating on social media that promise risk-free bets or credit offers to first-time users, according to 13 Wham. With the Super Bowl taking place this Sunday, those looking to place bets online should be extra cautious.
“Before placing a bet, do your research into the platform, read the fine print of the offer, and follow our other tips to avoid any red flags and keep the odds in your favor. Online sports betting companies that fumble their advertising to mislead New Yorkers can expect to hear from my office,” said James.
