    Exclamation URGENT: ALL Affiliate programs: BAN VERIFIEDCASINOS.COM For Serious Hacking! (proof)

    Huge Online Gambling Hacking Scandal. Millions Of Sites Hacked By VerifiedCasinos .com.


    • The discovery of the unethical promotion practices of one casino and gambling affiliate may well be the largest hacking scandal the online gambling industry has ever seen.


    Dear affiliate program managers, account managers and all who has an interest to having the online gambling niche respectable, clean, ETHICAL, and totally hacker free.

    Me personally, I am REALLY REALLY REAAALLY getting pi**ed off and fed up with hackers. One such hacker is the owner of VERIFIEDCASINOS . com.

    This person has hacked multiple MILLIONS of third party websites, and places his affiliate casino promotions pages and links on those sites. I personally have already reported this to a few affiliate programs now for several months, but.... NO action has been taken. I have reported it to is domain registrar, to Google. So far, no results. That is why I am now bringing it here in the open!

    Examples: (Since I can't post links as this is my first post here, please remove the space in between google and .com and copy and paste in to your browser. Then select a few of the results and click them. You'll see what I mean...

    google .com/search?q=%22?p=online-casinos%22
    google .com/search?q=%22?p=online-casino%22

    Another one?

    google .com/search?q=%22?p=online-video-poker%22

    Another one?? Why NOT!!

    google. com/search?q=%22?p=online-roulette%22

    Are you F****** kidding me??

    Literally MILLIONS of sites are hacked by this person!!

    Attention: To ALL affiliate managers, directors, affiliate managers: All of you state that affiliate programs DO NOT condone hacking, spam and any other unethical ways of promoting. However, none of those ethical business have banned this affiliate, simply because he brings in the players...

    Hacking is illegal. Condoning it too. And, I believe those who condone this should be prosecuted or roqued.

    I know from talking to several affiliate managers during my intensive research that they know him, and that MANAGEMENT knows about him and his unethical ways of promoting. Yet, they don't DO anything because he brings in so many players. Right...

    I have reported this person to his web host, to google and, obviously tar and feather him here too. Stop this hacker now, by banning him. Or be unethical yourself. And be part of the hacking. In that case: you should be legally prosecuted too.

    Some of the casinos he promotes on his home page:

    cosmik casino
    city club casino
    888 casino
    europa casino
    spin palace
    william hill
    befair
    casino.com
    mega casino
    casino midas

    These are just a few of the casinos he promotes on the home page. Since he geo targets, there are many more casinos and sport betting sites that he promotes. All of which I will contact personally within the next few days.

    It would seriously show some decency if the affected casinos above take action and ban him, followed up with mentioning that this has happened, below this post.

    Thank you. We MUST keep our beloved industry CLEAN of such heinous people.

    The antihacker.

    Hello Rick,
    Thank you for your reaction, yes I have. Multiple times.
    I have yet to see results of that. If all aff programs ban this hacker, as they should, it would be much more effective.
    Even if they (Google) took out verifiedcasinos, he'd still be making money.
    If he gets banned for life and his money taken from him, then there is a chance this person won't do damage to our industry anymore. Aff programs should do WHATEVER it takes to keep him far away from us.

    I've also reported him to his host and registrar.

    Funny fact is that I've also reported him by phone to affilistars. com and guess what? The person I spoke to who called himself Danny, laughed at me and hung up. Talking about a rogue affiliate program. They do state that they ban affiliates who do illegal stuff like hacking, but this person brings in a lot I guess. They don't want to lose him. I say BAN him and rogue any aff program who doesn't.

    I will will try to contact more aff programs in the coming days, weeks, months. I'll do this as long as that is needed, until I'm sure he's banned everywhere, without any chance of returning!!

    This is person is criminal and makes our line of business the kind people want nothing to do with, thanks to his hacking.

    Thank you for your time, please help raise awareness.

    Thanks,
    the anti hacker

    Sorry to hear this, but I can hardly see anyone banned for this. Same case as Google bans for black hat SEO. If affiiate programmes would ban sites with hacked incoming links, everything might end in chaos. This is why the jerks laughed.

    Are you saying that if I were to crack someone's weak password for their business website's hosting and took the liberty of redirecting visitors and/or dropping affiliate links, this would not be criminal?
    Not even two years later...

    I'll be posting here.

    Affactive has told me they've banned this affiliate the beginning of August. NO way to confirm this though.

    You should also report him to the big brands listed on the bottom right of his web pages (As Seen On). I'm sure they will not be impressed to be linked to this site.

    It is criminal. But unless they are complete dumbasses like if they put the hacked website on the same IP as money site, then it is criminal only de iure.

    I can well imagine that the money site is not the hackers, but simply affiliate who bought some gambling related "links" with strong rank.

    I really hope they have made some stupid mistake that can be 100% evidence. And I hope the affiliate managers will cooperate and understand the problem. As you know I am trying to solve some cases of affiliate fraud and the results are very poor in most cases. Even with 100% evidence the affiliates do not understand how serious problem the fraud is.

    I would like to see a sample of the hacked domains. There is a small chance they left some trace. The big brands will need the trace. As OP said, this is not fraud against affiliate programs (which promoted other brands), but against other affiliate guys, so I can imagine that there will be a reluctant approach to the issue.

    The hacks are not about buying links that point at the pages, the hacks appear to be (at least in early research) hacked websites where pages were added to sites without the knowledge of the website owners.

    These hacked pages have to be in the navigation structures (or at least the site maps) of the hacked websites in order to end up in the serps.

    Then it is a problem. Because it can be used as weapon as well and the excuse that "it was used as weapon against my innocent site" will be raised. Maybe the rogue website should be forced to list all inks in google disavow tool or something like that.

    However I do not see millions of links: http://www.majesticseo.com/reports/s...exDataSource=F

    https://ahrefs.com/site-explorer/ove...IEDCASINOS.COM

    Can it be because the links are only in sitemaps?

    Hmmm maybe.

    What is the most strange about it is that Google is ranking SO MANY of the pages so highly when it is 100% clear they are DUPLICATE CONTENT!

    I am convinced this is a hacker. he did not buy links as you say. He is hacking left right and center. Every day, there are more sites hacked. Google will tell you. Some results show, 2 days ago, 3 days ago etc.

    Have a look at the descriptions on the hacked sites. ALL different! He must have some tool! When I said that to myself a bell started to ring... He IS using a tool.. Pretty expensive one too.. More than likely he is using Fantomaster cloaking. (Not for hacking, but for 'content'... on those hacked sites.

    What is Fantomaster?

    Code:
    About Fantomaster: Introducing Cloaking 3.0….
    Our Fully Managed Customized Cloaking Campaigns!
    World renowned “responsible” customized Cloaking 3.0 for corporate clients in New York, driving massive organic traffic to your money generating sites. Discover how the latest advanced Cloaking technology and Social Media can be combined to explode your online sales by driving targeted search engine organic traffic to your web site or Facebook fanpage.
    
    3D Context Delivery™ – Cloaking Operative Features
    
    1. SHADOW DOMAINS
    
    We create between 5000 to 30,000 (root domains and sub-domains) search engine-only Shadow Domains™ sites (depending on the competitiveness of your industry) dedicated exclusively to generating loaded context pages based on linguistic frequency parameters, keyword density optimization algorithms, extensive real life search terms analysis and proprietary cloaking and dynamic page generation techniques.
    
    We register shadow domains related to the primary core domain, e.g. “clientdomain2 .com” plus thousands of sub-domains. Each client campaign build is then fully driven by the all important SEO phase. This includes an exceptionally aggressive backlinking program of up to 120,000 backlinks each and every day, ensuring high traffic grabbing rankings of your Phantom Pages.
    Fantomaster site is down now, but that is for other reasons I am guessing. The creator of fantomaster, does not want to be found too much. The internet does not like him too much, and is it not getting clear as to why that would be??

    However, it does not necessarily need to be Fantomaster, but it is professional cloaking. These type of people you do not want to meet in a dark alley way. It is also clear to me that he did not just make 30,000 sites either. He hacked the **** INTERNET!!

    Also, I've discovered something else he (might) be doing.

    Do this with me and you'll see:

    Check verifiedcasinos. com/top10-2/index.php

    I took a particular bit of content from his site. Take ANY sentence and you can do the same, each time finding different sites that will have this snippet of content in them. I took for this example: "The casinos that made it to the top 10 list of our website went through extreme scrutinizing by our staff" (which is from his page there) and searched it on Google "with quotes".. When you click on a result, you'll land on the-best-onlinecasino .com/

    HOWEVER...

    Now go back to the google result page, and click the little green thingy besides the domain, let it open and click cache.

    And, while this made me have an 'aha erlebnis' I went over to the hacked sites, found one where I could check the cache, and it's the same. This person is not only hacking, he is also using industrial strength cloaking. And, it seems to work fine. This is why I think he uses Fantomaster.

    If you check a few of the cached pages, you'll see that he links to casinomeister youtube, and two of his own links in the cache (which Google sees) however, for a normal visitor, his casino page will show. (linking to others to make it look 'natural')

    www. ncsta. org/ is one of the sites I found (PR5) - he places his hacks on www. ncsta. org/index.php?optionp=casino-online-craps

    Now, if we click it, we land on his hacked site, however, the cache shows:

    This, ladies and gentlemen is industrial strength cloaking. Again, Google sees the cache jibberish, the visitor will get the site served.

    So, this person is hacking third party sites, and cloaking. I am sure, if I dig a bit deeper, that I will find a whole lot more. Are they asleep in Google? Matt Cutts better get back from his holiday!

    Why do I not see any affiliate programs responding here?

    Or, management representatives from GPWA?

    The only way to stop this person is to cut his money lineS and make sure that he never ever gets back in to our industry.

    I call on all affiliate programs to take action, or, as the FBI told me, they could too could face criminal charges as this person is a monster. Not beast, no, operating on a beyond never before seen MASSIVE scale. When so many sites ARE hacked, and those who condone it, I have been told, are just as quilty as the perpetrator... Maybe that will get them in gear to boot him out!

    I know 99% for certain that this person also has multiple affiliate accounts.

    On verifiedcasinos - Spinpalace ?s=wgs30535
    On the-best-onlinecasino .com it is ?s=wgs31874&a=1031990121415015

    If someone owns the best onlinecasino dot com site, then please tell us here. But, I think, this is all the same person / organization that does it all. If you do a whois search on the best onlinecasino site, you'll find the number +45.36946676... Do a google search with that number, and see just how much 'hacker results' are evident.

    There is a loooong way to go.

    Again, anyone who reads this:

    Take action and contact your aff manager on this, tell them to have a look at this thread please. You just as well as all other affiliates are affected by this HUGE and ILLEGAL and especially unfair competition.

    Not even talking about all the poor people who have been hacked. Their sites may tank simply because of it. Hacker does not care, he hacks a few more, sits on his yacht, zipping Piña coladas. If it is up to me, the bottle is empty. His yacht up for sale, and him homeless.

    PS: I asked Affactive to confirm in this thread that he was banned from their ranks, they said he was since the beginning of august, they agreed to officially state it here, but, so far, we did not see that here either. It must be busy..

    Anyone who can, please help taking this hacker down. Talk to your aff managers. Show them this thread. He is not only hacking, he is stealing YOUR money, and, the aff programs don't care. They get the players. And, that is WRONG.

    Thank you.

    However I do not see millions of links: http://www.majesticseo.com/reports/s...exDataSource=F

    https://ahrefs.com/site-explorer/ove...IEDCASINOS.COM

    Can it be because the links are only in sitemaps?
    The only way to eliminate him, is to take his money away. Making 100000% sure he is NEVER ever to be seen in our industry again.

    The ONLY way.

    If you know just how much effort I had to take (hours and hours, days after days, weeks etc) to report this to Google, with NO results, and that I am still daily trying...

    FBI is not fond on gambling sites as in such, however they do have an interest in this hacker. And, since they dont LIKE gambling sites, they have an interest as well in the aff programs who condone this type of behavior.

    I am not disclosing anything of the conversation I had with the FBI on this other than the above. It should pose as a warning and measure to take IMMEDIATE action from the affiliate programs sides.

    Lots of views... 2 votes ( 1 = mine) Are we afraid to show how we feel? Or don't we care? Or perhaps, nobody likes polls? I was hoping, folks would show their dislike and vote. Perhaps I was wrong, adding a poll. Please do vote and let the brands know you are AGAINST them condoning this.

    Thank you!

    Okay, I've got to be frank here and say that while I'm not experienced enough to say with 100% confidence that this qualifies as hacking (could it just be someone bought the pages on these site?), it certainly looks extremely suspect to me and the lack of any response what-so-ever from the brands that are consistently displayed across all of these pages is very disappointing. I'll be contacting the programs that I work with and frankly if some reasonable response isn't offered then this issue (working with hackers) will be included in their reviews.

    Hi ThePogg,

    THANK YOU! You have given an answer I was hoping to get from my colleague affiliates. I am hoping on more aff's to do the same.

    At least that way, I did not spent all these countless hours, days and weeks on my research on this..

    I can GUARANTEE it is hacking. (One of my non gambling sites was victim, and I had to delete the whole account from the server to get rid of him, resulting in several thousands of $$ in damage..) He hacked the wrong person. Me. I went and searched and found him. Tough doggy doo for him.. Cause I'll wrap that doodoo around his ears until they fall off.

    If it was 'just me' then who cares about me losing out thousands. But, he hacked so many sites, those poor people don't even know they are victim. Their sites are pretty much rendered valueless, thanks to him.

    To further answer you: He did not buy links or any such activity. He is hacking more sites by the day. There are hacked sites indexed 1 day ago, 2 days ago, 3 days ago and so on. It is hacking. 100% for sure. (Alhough it seems he 'calmed a bit down' as they are coming in slower now) Perhaps he read it here, or on CAP, and started to smell the doggy poo that is forming around his or her ears..

    It is. Besides being disappointing, It really worries me too. Thank you.

    Thank you again. That is how it's done.

    Thing is, there are many more brands that this person is (successfully) but unethically promoting, using geo targeting. Casinos, Sports betting and more. Not just the brands on the home page. For example, there are pages on which he promotes Affactive brands too. They informed me that they banned him the beginning of August, they promised me to state that officially here, in this thread that indeed they banned him. I don't see them here.. Probably not so important, or its too busy to address this important issue in the open.

    Spoken to Clara (affactive) who told me he was banned.

    I am also STILL waiting on any response from the aff programs I contacted. (affilistars. com for instance laughed at me and hung up.) It is VERY time consuming trying to get in (proper) contact with them. Even the big brands.. Insane.

    The Pogg, thank you for being part of this. Please keep me updated on how you get on, and what responses you are getting.

    We need as many people as possible, to raise awareness with the aff programs. He needs to be CUT OUT completely and forever..

    As this HAS to stop yesterday.

    Again, MUCH respect to you for replying, and helping out.

    Thank you.

    I must say a big 'well done' to antihacker for all this info and I repeat what has been said above: I hope the affiliate programs in question all step up and ban him immediately and not 'in a few months after he has brought several players/traffic'. I see 888, William Hill and Betfair on his sites (loading them from the UK, presume it's geo targeted). I'd hope all would give him the boot, but who knows.

    I searched the "p=online-casinos" terms originally suggested and saw thousands of pages that do indeed look like they have been hacked and all end up on the same website or similar "top 10" style review sites. I know one for sure is the identical design to a (i presume legitimate) site I've seen that runs adwords campaigns called 'casinochoice'. There's no way that is 'paid links' or anything that could just be seen as 'black hat' etc, it looks like straight up hacking to me and there's a big difference between the grey area/black hat backlinks and downright criminal activity.

    I'm not in the casino niche at all (sports only) so I rarely search such terms so I'm keen to know: is this guy actually managing to rank well for this rubbish? If so, I'd hope it's a loophole that google will plug asap and stop this cloaked rubbish from ranking and also hope it doesn't seriously affect the website's he has hacked.

    Best of luck and well done again for all your good work!
