    Default GoBetGo.com Affiliate Spam

    I received an unsolicited email (to my personal address) from a GoBetGo.com affiliate manager asking for exposure.
    I replied asking where they got my email address and they said:

    "It was given to us by an affiliate manager who wishes to keep his name private. "


    I replied saying that I wanted to keep my name and email address private too and that I have not had any choice in that matter. I also said that it is a bad start for an affiliate program that they are buying email address databases and sending unsolicited spam.

    They replied:

    "It's a more worrying fact, that someone who you are already working with sold your information to a third party. Don't shoot the messenger. "



    Cliffs: It's not okay to sell email addresses, but it's okay to use the said email addresses when you are they buyer.

    Quick search of the forum shows that these guys were sending imposter emails posing as Fortune Affiliates;

    Yeah I got hit by spam from these clowns as well as did some other people I know. I have a hard rule on this stuff, if you want to request a review you do so on my message boards. Any requests that come through my email just go straight into my spam folder.

    Funny, I'd heard exactly the same thing - hardly a strong pedigree....
