    Default Affiliate Managers - is this your tag?

    Hi,

    I received this tonight:

    xxxhttp://gnuf.net/partner/?track=e10a8a3ac218801cd4c428dfe4d06a13

    The email used was in the format of html and used the HitMan (MG) slot as a promo.

    I'm thinking this must be a MG white label, but didn't venture any further.

    I didn't follow the full URL instead used:

    xxxhttp://gnuf.net/partner/

    It seems to have originated in South Africa though the domain is set-up in such a way that it makes discovering the source (server) very hard, least for me.


    Any feed back is appreciated.



    Cheers



    Dave

    Hi All,
    <O</O
    I was out the other night celebrating my Dad’s 70<SUP>th</SUP> Birthday. As the night progressed he mentioned I received an Online Gambling Disc in his mail Box. Very strange considering I moved out at age 24.

    Anyway my Papa does not gamble nor does anyone else residing at that residence. In fact there are no computers at this particular residence. Nor have I compromised this address in any way.

    <O</O

    I cannot even explain how infuriating this makes me feel. He still has the mail along with the CD, which I will get today.

    The Gloves are coming off I am absolutely disgusted! Who ever sent it I skata sta moustra sou hazi. I will rip you a trimalakas yamas yourrounia koprtis.
    <O</O
    Like playing games with my family you ******* assholes. and **** this gambling ****. Marc kiss my ass you **** tits!

    Greek im there with you buddy

    I received snail mail to my current address last week from a bingo property.. well known... I've never played online bingo in my life. Nor have I signed up at any of this company's properties.

    When I contacted the live chat support to ask how they got my postal address they told me they get addresses from online surveys..

    He then told me he had removed me from the mailing list (I didnt even give him my postal address so he must have been psychic or a mind reader).. When I asked him how he could do that wihtout my postal address he said he removed me with my email..
    Mind you he couldn't find an account with my email address on it either..because there was none.
    The guy was in idiot...

    skata sta moustra sou hazi
    ummm HELL YES.

    They dont have telephone support and each time I asked him for a supervisor he told me to email someone else for more info.. I said to him 'you are live chat support. If you cant help me you're not really support are you?'

    At the end of the live chat he said 'i'm glad to have assisted you' to which i replied 'you didn't assist me at all..'

    F***ing c***s.

    I can tie this back to some of my favorite anti-conservative rhetoric, but will hold back in respect for some reasonable people who vote Republican...

    But the gambling restrictions in the US have made a lot of companies very desperate. It's not an excuse - but really shows who is struggling and who is adapting. I do my best to favor the ones who dont bend the rules when times are tough.

    Thumbs up

    I apologize for the rude behaviour but this is my Papa we are talking about. My Dad is a huge part of my life and he worries about me a fair bit. The mail was addressed to my Greek name but to his address. He told me that he has received these gambling disks more than once.

    Sorry Dave for hijacking your thread I did not realize I had done so until after. Please don’t hold it against me.

    Renee thank you so much for the support. Knowing the Greek culture I am sure you can understand the temperament. Could very well be what you have explained? The part I am stuck on is my name.

    Matted you make some very valid points, thank you. I always hold you in high regard!

    My real Greek name is never used for anything except once and this involved the CAC organizer, approximately about a year ago when I was requested to speak regarding BH SEO. I turned the offer down after the organizer had booked my flight. I should have known better considering all the data base sales taking place. I only consider this as a possibility.

    Again I apologize and if the GPWA deems it necessary to edit my post feel free to do so.

    In my opinion I don't think an apology for the behaviour is necessary.

    If I had posted everything I had said to that poor live chat guy here I doubt anyone would speak to me again LOL

    Regarding the temperament - no need for explaining.. I know exactly what you mean - I do live with a greek man afterall...

    Ill send you a PM mate so we can let this thread get back to its original intent...

    Cheers
    Renee

    PS BTW Dave - its not ours

    Hi all,

    at risk of being ..... well out of line..... I ask that Greek's (Peter) posts be understood that he above all else ..... sees what many of us do not.

    I understand this..... and when you're in trouble ... at risk ...... being attacked and may not know it ..... it's Peter (Greek) that comes to your aid .... often without you're knowing you needed the help.

    The man makes little .. while taking time out to protect many of us who make at least something.

    He knows I have called him superman without a cape. i stand by that. I hope others...... especially those that might have found offense ... that it is likely this person who will be the one to come to your aid ....... save your ass .... even when you didn't know it needed saving.

    nuff said!

    Dave,

    For sure MG here is a link http://xxx.robtex.com/dns/gnuf.net.html. Everything you need to know can be found there. Be sure to examine the page fully.

    BB,
    Thank you for your support the disk belongs to 888 I am in the process ripping it. In other words dismantling looking for any signs of a aff tag.

    Next because it was sent to my Dad think I will keep it. I am sure my cat would appreciate the disk in her litter box. Give her that extra insentive to relieve herself more often. After a few months I will return to sender.lol

    It wasn't a newsletter it was commercial advertising material that was sent without my permission. That constitutes SPAM.

    <o></o><o></o><o></o>xxxhttp://gnuf.biz/terms-and-conditions
    (remove x's)

    Your Spam clause:

    "1.32 'Spam' means any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service (including content on an Internet website operated for a commercial purpose).which is intentionally transmitted to multiple commercial electronic mail messages from or through a computer"

    I know what spam is, but from your response it seems that nothing is being down about this affiliate who Spammed me. Or is there?
    <o></o>
    Thanks for putting up your hand on this, but, you got to understand from my point of view and other webmaster too, we get bombarded with this cr#p (SPAM) day in day out. It both frustrating and time consuming.

    These spammers actively take part in email harvesting to acquire email addresses, they also purchase databases of email addresses that don't have our expressed permission to be used for marketing. Pretty dodgy activities in my opinion.

    With that fact in mind, what do you intend to do about this affiliate who has SPAMMED me & probably 1000's of others?



    Cheers

    Dave

    Hi again Dave,<o></o>
    <o></o>
    That is not supposed to happen and once again I am sorry that the promotion email reached you. It should only have reached selected players that had accepted 3<sup>rd</sup> party emails. Apparently your email has been on that list and how that has happened I do not know<o></o>
    <o></o>
    It might be as you say, a person that has “harvest” emails.<o></o>
    <o></o>
    I myself get annoyed with all the spam that reach both my private and work email, it is a nuisance.<o></o>
    <o></o>
    We are in contact with the affiliate who did this and are having discussions with him. It is not in the interest of Gnuf to send out spam since it causes more harm then good. <o></o>
    <o></o>
    Exactly what we are discussing with this affiliate will not be published on a public forum but I can assure you that it is being monitored and dealt with from our side.<o></o>
    <o></o>
    Cheers<o></o>
    Henrik<o></o>
