Would you send money for a fantasy league to a stranger?

Postby Favre.com » Mon Nov 27, 2006 7:52 pm

I was wondering how many of you here that are in money leagues send money to a stranger, and how many play with just people you know?

Vote for the poll please.

If you vote that you will not send money to a stranger, please state your reasoning and then explain an alternative.

I hope this gets a lot of votes because I am trying to do a sort of study on this for the future, thanks.

Depends on the amount, where I meet them, where the league is based out of, the options they give me to send them money (ex: Only by mail, or like paypal or by mail, ect).

But I'll vote yes, because with the right situation I would.

ive never played a money league, but i see no reason to send money to a stranger when they could very easily get away with stealing it.

agree with aaawall. but if it was someone i had some reason to trust (answered a posting on the cafe or what not) i'd probably send up to $100. more than that, probably not. basically, i'd trust someone to the same extent that i would trust a seller on ebay.

I wouldn't. If I wanted to play in a money league, I'd find one with people I know.

Let me clarify the situation. Lets say money can be sent any way you wish (paypal, check, money orer, etc.), the league was using any service (cbs, yahoo, espn, etc.), the fee was under $100. The league was ran by a guy you met at the cafe.

99 Times out of 100 my answer would be no. However, If it was a fairly low amount and the person was not only from here but also a "regular" who I've "known" a while I'd consider it.

I'd also like to add this is hypothetical because I've never been in the situation I tend to stick to free Leagues as well...maybe its because they are cheaper?
