    I'm assuming its the same person but the from name is different on each one.

    Oops they aren't done yet: xxhttp://www.lucky247.com/landing-pc/great-match-offer?btag=654670_33E76112BE2A4830B9852CD642EB88A8

    Hi Redbush54,

    Yes, that's the same affiliate over and over (they're spamming me too! lol).

    We're on this, apologies again for the inconvenience!

    Thanks,

    Sacha

    I am also trying to figure this out, as mailers are not readily available on our platform.

    Mailers do not have to be available as spammers can create their own creatives or they can use regular banners and such and sometimes they just use text links.

    I think the problem is that when the spammers are reported, the programs do little to nothing about it - thus enabling these idiots to continue their unsolicited, unethical, and illegal campaigns. If programs have standards and remain accountable to them, this problem eventually goes away...

    and yet more spam comes through, what you going to do about it eh?

    How come it's always you lot? do you actively hunt out spammers to work with because you ain't doing anything to stop it. PATHETIC

    Hi

    Everyone hates spam and i am on the top that list ....but lets face the facts .. can anyone reading this thread name one gambling URL in the top 20 positions on Google that is not know for some spamming

    I have even had spam from 32red ...i have never signed up at their site but ever now and again probably 2-3 times per year i get am unsolicited offer..... but it is not showing as being sent direct by 32 red so i have no idea if it coming direct through a different URL that they own or through an affiliate but spam is spam.

    The biggest casino spammer in the world for years and years probably as every knows was 888 but now they have seemed to have gotten away from it over the last 2-3 years maybe because more than likely they now have almost player that has every gambled at any online casino over the past 17-18 years is probably now in their data base.

    Back in day "WAY back" when they were know as CasinoOnNet ....every 4th email in my inbox seemed to be from them or one of their affiliates.

    have a read of this complete bullshit i just got emailed from Lawerence (very similar to the poster above as well). Proves they don't care about working with affiliate spammers

    Whilst I certainly understand your frustration, the truth is that all online casinos will always get spam complaints, both from their internal player subscriber list and their affiliate/marketing partners. I have been in the industry since 1999, and spam complaints, be they legitimate or not, are relatively commonplace. To say things haven’t been dealt with is not necessarily true as the senders are, more often than not, different – just like the last 2 you have forwarded on to me.

    Regarding your question of banning all mailers, I’m afraid this would simply not make business sense. The vast majority of our marketing partners that utilise e-mail marketing acquire good volumes of quality players. As the world of online marketing has progressed over the years, the diversification away from simply having a website has accelerated unbelievably. We have PPC experts, SEO experts, e-mail marketing experts, direct mail experts, bloggers, and many more. Why would an operation intentionally sever one of its most effective marketing methods?

    In terms of banning spammers, To Play Affiliates does have a Spam Policy in place, and we do respond to any, and all, spam complaints. There is always a difficulty in proving, beyond any doubt, that the complainant did not subscribe to receive e-mails from the affiliate, or from third-party marketing partners of the original mailing list. In most cases, we will request that the complainant’s e-mail address be permanently removed from the affiliate’s mailing lists. This is especially pertinent when we only receive a single spam complaint, such as your last two complaints sent to me. Is it safe to assume that, because we receive one spam complaint, the marketing partner is a spammer? In my opinion, I don’t think so. In some instances, we will receive a spate of spam complaints about the same e-mail, and this is obviously a much clearer case. In these instances and/or if the offending affiliate is non-responsive, we most certainly do take action and either withhold payment or ban them from the affiliate program until such time as we are satisfied that the complaint has been properly dealt with.

    As an aside, I see that you have an AOL e-mail address. Are you reporting these instances of spam to them, or to a body like SpamCop? Or do you only e-mail the product/service which is being advertised in the e-mail?

    Regards,
    Lawrence.
