    Okay I've been looking to get into matched betting as it seems quite interesting. But before I sign up do bookies/betfair send letters home with your name on it? and if they do can you give them a fake address?

    Also I've recently changed my name via deed poll and to verify myself I need to show my passport which has the old name on it (small change in spelling). Can I show my deed poll and my passport to verify myself for betfair?

    Thank you.

    Bet 365 send a letter to your Address to verify your address is correct. However Betfred don't.

    What about general bookies, like ladbrokes or paddypower?

    I've never used those, But i'd advise against using a Fake name/address or whatever, Because if you do get found out your account will get blocked and you'll lose your money.
