The Perfect Barefoot Side Hustle

Question


Scott,

I have come across a mob who are selling themselves as offering the “perfect Barefoot Side Hustle” with what they call “matched betting”. Is this is a scam? Or am I just a little too risk averse?

Hi Jenny,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I have a standing rule that I don’t Google myself, or read anything that’s said about me (good, bad or otherwise).

It keeps me (marginally) sane.

Yet what gets me all ‘Mark Latham’ is when insurance salespeople, mortgage brokers, financial planners, Bitcoin scammers, and even blokes on Tinder (!) use my name to sell their … junk.

Let me be clear: I have absolutely nothing to do with a gambling service.

Someone’s doing a hustle but it sure ain’t me!
