Like many new arrivals, Ava asked 'is Profit Accumulator a scam?'. She soon realised it was a legitimate way to make money and, three years later, still uses matched betting to earn cash in her own time. Here's a bit more about Ava ...

Whereabouts do you live?

Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire.

Tell us about your family

I'm engaged with only furry children (a dog and a cat).

Do you work?

I work full-time in accounts

How long have you been a member of Profit Accumulator?

I have been a member of PA, on and off, for nearly three years.

How did you hear about and how have you found it?

A colleague told me about it and I have to admit I was very skeptical. It seemed too good to be true and you can't help but think it could be some kind of scam.

"It's more of a hobby that earns me money"

It was very nerve-racking at first using just £20 of my own money for the first sign-ups. Now I think nothing of lumping £1K on a horse! During the jumps season last year I was earning anything up to £200 a day but since then I have found I'm making a steady £1,000 a month but it really is all about the time you put it as to what you get out of it.

What do you do with your earnings?

Matched betting has funded holidays and even my house deposit.

How much time do you spend matched betting?

I spend as much time as possible doing matched betting, It helps that I enjoy doing it so it's more of a hobby that earns me money!

Why does it appeal to you?

Matched betting appeals to me as not only do I enjoy doing something that funds my lifestyle but I love the social side of it in the forums, in particular the horse refund thread. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I would be lying if I said I hadn't taken a sneaky look at other matched betting sites but none compare to PA in my opinion.

What would be your advice to someone thinking of trying it?

I would say take the plunge - it really is as good as it sounds and you will never look back.
