Yes , but api limit on MFP Lite have nothing to do with it . this problem was on MFP full licence and MFP team solved . Looks like the lite version have the same bug. 167GBP charged .

Don't know what geek toys is but I can imagine if you use two programs at the same time that you may exceed the limit, as MF Pro will limit what it does, but can't count for access from web or other programs.

Just some thoughts...

Dont rely on the monitor to keep you safe. It has happened to me also a few times.
The killer is not just refresh rates at sub 3 seconds. If you are in test in mf pro lite and are betting at less than the £2 minimum this counts as 3 bets and will really rack up a pile of requests.
 
Make sure all your bets are over £2 or else you can get a nice email from the data request people, quicker than you can say "WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS"!
This time next year, we will all be paying Betfair premium charge commission rates!

hi
thanks for that info betfair winner.
i never thought about the below limit been 3 bets.
also i think that if you load markets and monitor at the same time increases the load over the limit.

hi

yes .they refounded me for first and last time ...no other mistakes allowed .
My stakes in sim mode are 100 .
I use one platform at a time .
The thing is that I did the same with MFP full licence and never charged. Api limit works perfect . Now I'am just affraind to try it again in sim mode any other strategy as will be charged again. I have 2 acconts ,one with full licence ,and one just for tests mfp lite which stands for 5-6 hours pre race  trades scalping swings . So I need to monitor all markets 1-3 seconds. Anyone from support can read this and try to fix it ?

hi
even though you have 2 accounts they are classed as 1 for request charges.

I had the same problem with MFP Lite.  Support advised that I had two instances of the program running, but I was certain this was not the case.  Anyway, BF refunded 2 days charges and didn't charge for a third day, after I stated that I wouldn't use the software again.

Please, take into account that BetFair increase your requests limit if you place real bets: http://www.betfair.com/aboutUs/Betfair.Charges/
So it's much more possible you face charges with the Lite version than with the full one.
