    Default Attention Affiliate Managers

    Hi All,

    I just wanted to make Affiliate Managers aware that this site does not belong to us:

    xxxhttp://www.casinoscashjourney.com/platinum-play-casino/

    Notice the "s" after the word "casino"

    Just in case they try and contact you.

    Thank You,

    If you find out who DOES own that site, let a few of us here know....so we can have them on the radar....

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for your concern.

    My main worry is to let Affiliate Managers know that it's not us. This webmaster has not done anything wrong.

    About 6 months ago, someone contact a number of Affiliate Managers trying to sell space on our site - but it wasn't us. I'm not sure if you remember but they took our .co.uk domain and added a "s" in it and it was barely noticeable so when they contacted Affiliate Managers, it looked like us. It's called Brand Illusion Typo Phishing. Here's the link to that thread https://www.gpwa.org/forum/affiliate...am-195566.html

    I think the casinoscashjourney has been going around for a little while now.

    They have been doing the same thing to other casino affiliates as well... even poker.

    Just a follow up thought Denise, might want to look at this thread here, and if you want to - you could possibly get them kicked from google serps, and trying to remove any sort of legitimacy these punks are trying to get?

    Hi Rak,

    Thanks for the info on the IP, hosting, etc. We've actually had to deal with The Planet on a previous issue. They were pretty good about things in the past.

    The one you were referring to was with our UK domain - xxxhttp://www.casinoscashjourney.co.uk (notice the "s" after casinos - this one is not ours either).

    The one that were referring to now is with our .com site - xxxhttp://www.casinoscashjourney.com (again, not ours either)

    Bigbcasinos made a sticky on this subject at https://www.gpwa.org/forum/been-copi...ck-166113.html.

    That must be very frustrating, I'm guessing there's nothing illegal about it unless they actually claim to be you?

    Hi Bonusbetting,

    You're right - this webmaster has not done anything illegal. I just don't want affiliate programs and colleagues associating this site with ours.

    Thanks,
