    Hi FictionNet, the affiliate in question has been identified and been given a first warning with regards to spamming. Could you let me know should this repeat itself so that we can take further action.

    Thanks

    A little bit more than one year is over.

    Some of you perhaps are well informed about the massive spam wave from Affiliate Club with Bellevue Casino. Some people, my family too, received over 30 (!) spam emails directly (!) from Affiliate Club within a few weeks. No fault from a webmaster. Directly from Affiliate Club! It was always the same content.

    And now I am about to draw parallels.

    All members of my family have never registered at any Club Gold partners brand, never signed for a newsletter or opt-in list, never!

    And in the last times some things changed...

    Another bad news:

    The same bad written Club Gold Casino begging letter to play free as a new player with 30 Euro, a member of my family received on

    It must be a big pool of people who received this crap, because the spam is not adressed with a name, a part of it or a title.

    [Original size]




    From: "clubgold" <noreply@clubgold.com>
    Reply-To: noreply@clubgold.com</noreply@clubgold.com>


    The content of the spam was sent by

    poolin.biz - A non-Google-listed spam factory?

    IP-Adress: 199.66.91.194
    No shared hosting.
    Server: yesup.com (Canada)

    ---

    If you click on the (poolin.biz) link in the spam, then you will be redirected to this special promotion page:

    clubgoldcasino.com/offers/de/2013/30fcdmlp/

    ---

    Images in the email came directly from Club Gold Casino:

    Example: clubgoldcasino.com/mailers/winner11092013/20euro/en/images/100-euro-roll.jpg

    ---

    A typical affiliate link looks like

    ads.clubgoldpartners.com/redirect.aspx?pid=3203&bid=1761


    The poolin.biz link in the spam email will be redirected to Club Gold with these details:

    pid=3669
    bid=1776


    I believe, "pid" is the webmaster identity. So there should be no problem to stop these never ending Affiliate Club-like spam, sending out the same crap email with the same content every 3 days!

    -If you are yourself 3669, then don't make the same mistake, Affiliate Club did.

    -If you aren't 3669, then it takes no longer then 24 hours to stop the poolin.biz spam. No excuses!


    This is the 1st and last warning!

    My family member's email address was taken from a stolen or purchased (also stolen) list.

    And I am sure, that's not the only stolen address in the pool.

    Hello Liisa,

    thank your for the fast reply. I have taken note of it.

    "We [...] wish you a pleasant weekend!"

    "We"?
    Are you sure of it?

    If this reply was penned again by you, then I have to say: "It's nicely written."

    Estonia names like Miia or Liisa are very popular here in Germany. The only difference is that we use them with a single "i".

    Three weeks ago I asked my Swedish friend if it's true, that the Iceland language is the most difficult language of the world. His opinion is, that this honour dues Finnish language.

    However, I wish you a nice weekend, and hopefully the world around your homeland will not catch fire. A storm is approaching with no end in sight.

    Leopold
