Manchester City has a suspicious new betting partner

Josimar Football:

It has many of the hallmarks of a company keeping its cards close to its chest: a founder who doesn’t seem to exist online; a CEO appearing to hide behind a stolen avatar; a backstory that doesn’t align with publicly available records. 

It also has a ghostly presence on social media. 8XBet’s LinkedIn account lists just two employees, for example. Neither of them appear legitimate. 


As previously reported, a deleted LinkedIn account for Trịnh Thu Trang claimed that she was the bookmaker’s CEO.

But her profile picture is the same picture used in an advertisement for an “Employee of the month photo frame” by lazerdesigns, a company selling all sorts of gifts based in Broomfield, Colorado. Yours for 44.99 US dollars.
