    This guy has not stopped and in fact today I logged in to an account to see 10 of the damn things.....

    I checked a few and they appear to be pointing at different domains which redirect back to the same front....

    I will look at them later to get a list of domains.

    Well I wonder if the address is faked or not....

    Today's spams redirect to a different domain name, same front as before, with a different Toront address....

    I am fairly sure this is all one operation since out of this "group" of spams I have been getting the past few weeks.... (the club vip, or lucky vip, or derrivative similar) they all end up being redirected back to the same front with a bunch of different names....

    In each case the front allows nothing being done except a download.....the help desk, preview, promotions, payment links...all of them point at the download....

    I'm receiving them too. Luckily they're going straight to my spam box so they're not annoying me too much yet. Spammers suck!

    Call the phone number to see if they answer.

    Are they spamming your affiliate emails or player emails?

    Most of the time this particular one comes to a non-gambling account that is only used for non-G stuff...

    The email Steven posted is only ONE of the domains the same group used TODAY....

    Some days its two or three....and some days its 5 or more.....

    BUT....they come every single day.....

    The site itself (that it is redirected to) is on a russian server I believe....the dns certainly is on a russian server with a .ru extension....(that in and of itself doesn't bother me but making someone at the Host level understand is much more difficult)

    I sent Martyn a note and forwarded 1 or 2 emails to him so I am sure he will look into it after getting back on track in the new year.

    I'm only getting about 8 to 10 of these a day from them and have been for weeks. Mine our coming from an address that i've listed on a website (as an image), so i'm not surprised it's being spammed. These guys are starting to make the Viagara spammers and the "good finance blog" spammers look like "good guys".

    Yea this guy just wont stop.....

    Almost every day is a different domain being used and I am fairly sure that some of the spam fighting a few of us have done with them is the reason they have moved the casino front and their link redirects to a .at domain....

    I am starting to reach the point where not only do I want to stop this jerk....but also wanna know who it is.....

    I have actually sent a few "notes" requesting that they actually grow a pair and SPEAK to me....

    AnCam, I also get the normal 5-6-8-10 a day from them....but I get that amount sent to multiple email accounts....

    I get them too directly in my spam box of my gmail account. Is everyone getting those, or should I get worried that it's only people involved with gambling portals ... Rick's favorite theory on email databases being sold

    I often am fairly careful about going out on limbs..... (I climb out there all the time but do so with open eyes)...lol

    No danger of this limb breaking though....I know for a FACT that these spams are going to people all over the world using mailing lists that are not only connected to gambling lists but general lists as well.

    I am personally getting these spams in a number of email accounts, MANY of which have no connections whatsoever to gaming.

    If in fact the software that downloads from this loser is from a CWC/AE property, then we need to make sure that AE knows how we all feel about this, and quite possibly if a few of these guys lose their affiliate accounts they might actually pay attention....at least for a short time....
