    For the record, BestPay Partners is the affiliate program for
    21GrandCasino.com and Supremeplay.com


    I have also reported the affiliate to antispam@21grandcasino.com.


    The site: GAMINGAFFILIATESBLOG.COM is a simple holding page with no content.

    The site fast-plays.com (pulled from header) is also a holding page void of content.

    I got 2 of these this morning...but I haven't checked my other email accounts yet.

    I did some research....

    The mail from (appears to be genuine) From: xxGAMINGAFFILIATESBLOG.COM <noreply@GAMINGAFFILIATESBLOG.COM>
    The message ID of the mail is Message-ID: <20100701103324.4218.192382127.xxswift@fast-plays.com>
    The mail server part of the header shows the correct ip address of the sending mail server which matches the message id.
    Received: from mail.fast-plays.com [85.17.162.231] by xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxx.xxx with ESMTP
    (SMTPD-9.10) id A92B0210; Thu, 01 Jul 2010 06:08:43 -0400
    Received: from [85.17.162.231] (MAL001.local [127.0.0.1])
    Doing a ping of either the xxGAMINGAFFILIATESBLOG.COM, or the xxfast-plays.com returns an ip that matches the sending mail server, and there is no website at those domains so they are currently being used for the purpose of spam right now.

    xxGAMINGAFFILIATESBLOG.COM created 6-24-2010
    xxfast-plays.com created 6-24-2010

    As you can see both of these domains were created this past week, and this is an indication that this individual knows exactly what they were doing and therefore the affiliate program should not be so quick to fall for some sort of excuse that it was a mistake or they didn't mean to do it....

    This was very calculated and controlled, and my guess is whoever did this has purchased a fairly up-to-date list of affiliates....

    This person should be named and shamed....and hung upside by his....."toenails".....until such time as he reveals the source of the list....in addition to having his affiliate account closed....

    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly!

    Default Best Pay Partners - Spamming the hell out of me!

    I got about 10 copies of this email :

    Hi there

    I just came across this great affiliate program called best pay partners.


    They have excellent commission offers and even accept US traffic.


    I have been in the business since the beginning and have never seen better revenue and


    Conversions than with these guys.


    This is a great way to get on my website and impress other affiliates.Whoever came up with this marketing idea needs to go back to school ASAP.
    A GPWA member had a payment issue with them ,they paid him after I sent them an email then thought I should now work with them because they paid his bill.I wonder if any idiot with a few thousand dollars can open a casino with this software,certainly seems like it.

    Sorry guys i just started a thread and didn't see this one , i got same issue too.
    The one email they sent to is our Corporate email which does not link to any gaming site so now i have to check my rivals to see which of these we communicate via the biz email.I personally thing Rival ,the software company is hanging by a thread and we will see a bunch of new skins rolled out to try to get new money in.

    I got this also...a couple of times. It's one of two things (possibly both)...

    1. A crap old list of affiliats merged from a few programs.

    2. A spider on affiliate sites which has picked up not only any email that maybe placed on an aff site but also those places on forums such as this one.

    Anyone know the aff managers there?

    Is there a new one?

    Makes sense as they probably have a list of "personal contacts".

    I believe I received the first email on the 28th of June. Thanks for looking into this. I look forward to NOT receiving more spam from this account (or any other!).

    The affiliate ID is: 1123321
    http://bestpaypartners.com/get/a/1123321

    If this is an affiliate, I hope you take severe action with him and let us know exactly what the outcome is.
    And if it's a house account, the person sending these mails needs to be fired.

    Default spamming

    Hey
    I have checked and this has not come from us but one of our affiliates who we have had words with and asked not to send these emails out again.

    Again i am sorry for this, no one likes spamming.

    If this happens again please can you email me and let me know at
    claire@bestpaypartners.net

    thanks again
