    Default Attention AM's - unethical affiliate selling large email database - proof attached

    The affiliate who operates the following sites has offered to "rent" out his data base of 35,000 email addresses.

    Obviously this is completely unethical and needs to be dealt with swiftly and severely. Please check the sites listed below for your program, grab his affiliate tags for identification and shut this guy down. Please!! Protect your players... shut this guy down!! We are talking bingo, casino, sportsbook and poker!

    This guy includes several email sign up forms on each page of his sites, he's making a business of harvesting emails!

    Some of the programs he is working with include:

    Bet365 - his aff tag is 365_037732&UGUID=32b4d1ce-4463-462e-aaf3-50fbe4c17914&BCTID=6700884
    Party
    Absolute poker - his aff tag is 18554
    Ladbrokes
    Cake poker - his aff tag is 5787
    FullTilt - his aff tag is key=MDAwMDJDRDcwMDAwNkJCQzAwMDAwMDAwMDAwMDAwMDA-
    Intertops
    Cherry Red Casino - his link = xxhttp://www.cherryredcasino.com/a/b4143-cn-a16412
    Rushmore
    Bookmaker
    And many others!

    Copy of email where he offers to rent the database:
    From: "You Win Casinos" <xxsupport@youwincasinos . com>


    Thank you for contacting me about exchanging links. I'm currently not doing any 'link exchange' with my sites but I am offering a slot or two for links to be placed on my homepages for a small fee. I can offer a text link at the bottom of the page mostly for SEO purposes, a more contextual text link in the 'testimonials', your own article and/or more prominent positions on the page.

    All my sites are gambling related and most deal with a specific sector of gambling (poker, bingo, sports betting, casino, etc). A homepage link from a gambling specific website will do wonders for your search engine placement.

    I'm also renting out my email list (collected from the above sites) to a few people who are interested. I have about 35,000 emails in the list.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Disgusting! Some AM's will act some won't the rest will be up to others to offer this harvester a cup of misery.

    Sometimes list rental means that if you want me to mail your offer to my list is xx dollars.

    Might want to verify EXACTLY what he means. Just me 2 cents.

    Regardless of whether he gives the list to the highest bidder or rents it out for third party advertising, when this guys customers signed up for his emails, I hardly think they were expecting to be rented or sold to other webmasters.

    It has been removed but now at least I know his background.

    Not so innocent after all, shameful. I know AGD has a good thread going regarding this person. Will follow up there seeing the original concern is posted.

    About a year ago a member here offered to sell me her website , it has been around for many years and she had a sign up form there .When i asked her about the database that went with the site ,she said she had no control over it ,she had a 'guy' who just collected the emails and he did what he wanted with them.I contacted him and he wanted $10,000 to give me the database that was collected from the website which i was prepared to pay 60k for .After talking to him i realised he probably had share the list with others and all these links go back to the website i was looking at.I seen it as a liability then and we didn't bother to complete the sale.People do not realise how VALUABLE a clean mailing list is .If the list has any value you keep it for yourself because every new casino that opens from today for eternity you can use this list to promote it on.List is probably worth nothing that is why he is renting/selling it.
