Quality Of Customer Service?

This is another standard offering from the Nottingham end of the Circle media crowd – the apparent difference this time being the poor Russian chap who saw the light in England and more than the usual quota of pictures to try and lure you in. And just by chance he has found that the Russian Premier League offers the best returns for his system and then a few other Eastern European leagues came good too.
At least there is no up-sell attempt here but the format is depressingly familiar and when the jackbarron email appears you know that the track record from that source is poor both results wise and on the customer service front.
And so it proved with no welcome email or explanation of what staking is proposed. All that happens is you receive an email with the days tip (which may have more than one bet placed) and the stake is advised in straight pounds sterling. For the purposes of the review we have shown the exact stake recommended by the service and assumed the £1000 bank the marketing advises. . We noted that the format of the bets was very similar to those seen previously in American Soccer Picks, a poor service from this source which we reviewed earlier this year. All in all a rather unprofessional output.
And things began in much the same vein as the similar services with losses and a match tipped that was not actually on the fixtures for that day (or week). Normally a match is tipped and a correct score for that game with reduced staking. Stakes for the win bets have ranged from £40 to £150 and are either £5 or £10 for the score tips. Some 27 bets have been recommended of which 11 have won – a strike rate of 40%. The result tips are successful (78% strike rate with 31% ROI) and the score suggestions not worth considering showing a loss of £100 for every £100 staked.
We were a little confused by a recent email claiming an 11 bet winning streak which members will see from the spreadsheet has not occurred. We have queried this with the service but at the time of writing received no response.
So the overall performance showing a profit of £255 with a 30.78% ROI is very creditable and certainly means the service is worth considering at the minimal fee charged. (Quite why a successful service would be so cheap is perhaps the real question. How long will the service continue once there is no cash coming in?)
We will keep monitoring and update members in October but there appears no risk in checking this out with the guarantee standing behind the service. Perhaps a cautious recommend is appropriate at this stage bearing in mind the small sample size.

Final Update 6/11/2013:
Despite a change of policy to recommending almost exclusively win bets and ignoring the fanciful correct sores the service has moved from profit into deficit in month 2 of the trial. Of the 51 selections during the trial 19 have been successful (37%) – a significant downturn on month 1 and we now see a 3 point loss to the bank.
The staking has become more aggressive and with odds on selections a few failures make life very difficult indeed. Presentation remains rather poor and no indication is given if there are no tips for the day. All rather typical of the Nottingham end of the Circle Media operation.
We suggest that the inconsistency we have seen in what is a relatively narrow field where the author claimed specialist knowledge leads to the conclusion that the service cannot be recommended.
