Hello to all bettors who have been able to experiment or who would like to experiment with the thomaslamasse.fr site. Thomas La Masse is good but… it's also a lot of (bad) surprises, it's very risky… and ultimately not very profitable…
Who is he, what is he doing?
To make things simpler I will summarize the facts a little in chronological order.
Thomas La Masse from his little name Thomas Boursin (company details) is a bettor who gives predictions for football and horse racing mainly. I started to know him and follow him towards the beginning of 2017. He offers free and paid forecasts (premium version at 29.90 € for one month).
Its premium version offers more forecasts and some details about the choices of its forecasts. So I occasionally took a one-month subscription to test its service. Until then everything was fine but it started to deteriorate little by little.
Gambling and risky information
As with any bettor, it is difficult to have a success rate of 100%. Thomas La Masse therefore established a sheet of statistics which summarized his victories and defeats. Oddly, some losses were not noted. So curious… Maybe he had made a mistake? It happens from time to time ... But when this type of error occurs frequently, we begin to think that it is noticing what suits it. If there was that it would not be too serious ...
Subscription for an indefinite period
Since May 31, 2018 (if I'm not mistaken), the monthly subscriptions to be renewed become monthly subscriptions of indefinite duration. Without anyone being kept informed of this change in situation. I noticed this when my subscription was renewed without my authorization, which was not the case before. It was then that I read the Terms of Sales and that I realized how big the scam was.
To summarize the General Conditions of Sale: any subscription is taken out for an indefinite period. To cancel a subscription, you must send a registered letter to the company's headquarters and the cancellation is effective on May 31 of the following year (May 31 being the anniversary date of the company). Which means that until May 31st I will be obliged to remain a subscriber and pay € 29.90 / month.
Thomas La Masse misses the call
Worried about this money going up in the air, I decide to try to contact him.
I first sent a message using the contact form provided for unsubscribe requests. I got an almost immediate and automatic response telling me that he is not responding to the email and that he must be called or contacted by WhatsApp.
So I called him. But in vain, no one answers and his voicemail is full. So I try to call him on WhatsApp but I get the same radio silence, so I leave him a written message.
After a few days I finally got a response by WhatsApp which confirms the extent of the scam:
How to unsubscribe?
I explain everything in this article:

Do not hesitate to say what you think in the comments, many people are in the same boat ...
Even if he happens to place good bets, I don't think it is a good investment!
Good afternoon to you 😉
