    Default Affiliate Scam - be warned

    Hi guys,

    Zuga here from LatestCasinoBonuses

    Ive posted the same thread over at CAP warning all our partners and other affiliate programs about the ongoing scam conducted by for now unknown persons.

    it was pointed out to my attention that certain scammers are trying to represent themselves as me and potentially as some1 else from the LCB Team. The email was sent to one of our casino partners.

    These scammers are smart and using false LCB email, and even my name, nikola @ latestcasinoSbonuses.com . You will notice an extra "s" in this email address. They even got our logos/mascots with proper links attached to the email.


    So if you get any suspicious emails please double check them for any discrepancies, so you avoid being cheated or contact me directly.

    I was also forwarded an attachment where they asked for paid media spot at the price of $56250 , where they also proved their bank wire details.

    If you have any questions please send email to my REAL address : zuga @ latestcasinobonuses.com

    p.s.
    Due to my post count Im not able to post screenshot of such email.

    cheers
    Zuga

    $56250! Did any program wire them the money? That is pretty funny. Curious, Where is the bank located that they want the funds wired to?

    So far I received only one report about this scam attempt. And hence my immediate warning here. I really hope they didnt cheat anyone. Im pretty confident this scam attempt won't work as all our partners got our correct contacts.

    Their bank details:

    Beneficiary Bank: PNC Bank
    Ben. Bank Address: Pittsburgh, PA
    Beneficiary Account: Aspire Media Group

    I stress once again if you receive any suspicious emails make sure to contact me directly or post on here.

    cheers

    Just another in the long line of scammers adding the "s" to the url and trying to cash in on the hard work of others. They should all be drawn and quartered.

    Yes it happened before as well. our other site is LatestSportsBonuses dot com and what they did was create an email without the "s" in this case. The fake Email used was alyssa @ xxlatestsportbonuses.com

    Hi guys,

    since my first post I havent got any new scam reports. So I guess thats a good thing, though I doubt this was an isolate case...

    cheers

    It is surprising that your site wasn't targeted earlier. Hopefully he is done.

    Aspire Media Group MPC Group, Inc.
    340 Madison Avenue
    New York, NY 10173

    Make all checks payable to Aspire Media Group
    WIRE ROUTING TRANSFER NUMBER: 031000053

    BANK NAME: PNC BANK
    CITY, STATE: NEW YORK, NY
    BENEFICIARY ACCOUNT NUMBER: 9016004912
    BENEFICIARY NAME: ASPIRE MEDIA GROUP

    signed John Wheeler

    Skype name: OCREDITOR

    Beware, everyone!

    zuga let me give you an example : and i can prove it to you! everything is possible! for example ! if i want to do scam or spam i can do it in your original mail... this will show that mail came from your address to the right people ... we can do a test btw . lol

    sry to say that and i`m afraid everything is possible if you are smart of course ....

    cheers chris
