The nature of Cheggers faux pas is an interview that cheeky Cheggers gave to the Telegraph’s finance reporter Mark Anstead. In the article Cheggers unwittingly provides every reason not to deposit any funds to play online bingo at CheggersBingo.com. When Cheggers is asked by Anstead, ‘Do you bank online?’ Cheggers gives the startling confession that he in fact does not trust the internet as a safe and secure method of handling cash. If that revelation in itself was not cause for concern for the many depositing online bingo members of CheggersBingo.com then when he goes on to add “Running an online bingo company has brought home to me how many people try and play with stolen credit cards. And no matter how secure a site is, there will always be people trying to hack into you. What I have seen is enough to put anyone off.” With a recommendation such as that from the owner of CheggersBingo.com, it is any wonder that they have any online bingo members left. Cheggers cringe worthy confession is unlikely to win him any friends at St.Minver either, after all if he doubts the security of his own online bingo site then others on the network must also surely be in question.
Certainly not a stranger to controversy, Cheggers has previously confessed in his autobiography ‘Shaken but not stirred’ to being a recovering alcoholic and also was the presenter of a pilot television show on Channel 5 called naked jungle which famously Cheggers hosted completely starkers.
