    Default GPWA member Alphonso69 stole my content

    Well with great distaste in my mouth over this i must report this to the community because its simply theft. I did my research. I contacted my writer and she confirmed its a direct cut and paste job.

    What is alarming for me is this member has done this to other sites as well. So i urge everyone to please check their content and compare it to his especially on his blog. He seems to be stealing content from various sites.

    I sent him a note asking him where he got the material and to supply me with reasons why he stole it. I also asked my writer "Giggles" in case there was a mix up. Well the proof is in the pudding so to speak.

    As i put my article online a couple of weeks ago within days now it was stolen from me a direct match word for word.

    If the 738 words 571 were directly copied in exactness. Further more another sites possibly owned by him also put my article online but copyscape did not find it.

    In his blog he has copied many others as far as i can tell, and whats worse, is he is PRIVATE GPWA member here since 2005...

    You would think he would know better since being in this business for many years... i am terribly disapointed in him....

    Well here goes: Directly from COPY SCAPE :

    Status: Open Your page: http://www.casinoarticlesonline.com/casino_articles/ reasons_to_play_free_slots.php Similar page: http://alfonso-casinosandpokeronline...1_archive.html Show copied text: Now | On December 11, 2009 (571 words)
    My articles i have paid for, and Giggles was kind enough to spend her talent writing for me and i am so pleased with her work.

    But this is totally unfair for him to come along and steal from another member. Its bad enough this happens amongst strangers, but when it happens with a member stealing another members content it sickens me.

    His site : http://alfonso-casinosandpokeronline.blogspot.com in my mind is all copies from various sources on the net. Again i urge everyone to check not only his blog but all his websites in case he has stolen your materials.

    Another site i do not know if he owns but they also stole my article.

    http://www.highstakespoker.pl/poker-strategy/412/ - they are linked to www.pokergrinders.com.

    I dont know if its all one person or several thieves but what i do know is i want his article removed and he needs to be disciplined.

    His name on here is Alphonso69 and is a private member. His profile here

    I want a poll set up for Private membership to discuss whether or not he should be removed as a private member.

    Not to long ago a member was removed because of email spam. I find content theft just as bad if not worse.

    I officially ask the GPWA for immediate assistance and a Poll set up to discuss his removal.

    I want the article removed and a written apology from him and a reason why he stole my work.

    Its bad enough i got burned wil duplicate content in the past but when a fellow GPWA member here steals from another its rotten.

    Please help stop this theft GPWA.

    I would like to point out that i have been in contact with Connie Burnstein regarding this issue as this affiliate has a sloto cash banner embedded in the page with my content. I do not think its appropriate he is tying to benefit as an affiliate from slotocash sign ups with my content that he stole.

    Here is my PM to her for the record!

    Connie how are you?

    I wanted to bring something to your attention. One of your affiliates has blatantly copied my work.

    The have cut and paste my article and stole it from me, and have not answered me or taken it down.

    The reason i tell you this is because on the page where my stolen content is they have SLOTO CASH banner embedded right in the content.

    I know you are a writer and do not condone article theft and copy right issues.

    This member is a long time private member of GPWA and maybe a Slotocash affiliate..

    But i do not think you would want to be associated with an affiliate who steals other webmasters content.

    I would like to know what Slotocash plans to do about this since i am also an affiliate...

    I have spent alot of money building my article base only to have an affiliate who is using your banner on my article to make money off it.

    Its unethical and disturbing.

    Here is my post about this thief, and i will post that i contact you and reported he is stealing my content to get sign ups to slotocash...

    https://www.gpwa.org/forum/gpwa-membe...tml#post573444

    His name on here is alphonso69 and his affilaite tag.

    xxhttp://slotocash.com/get/a/571075xx

    i will post this message in the post as verification of what i have informed you.

    Thanks for your attention.

    he is PRIVATE GPWA member here since 2005
    He must be very private a mere one post since 2005 lol. Oh he will climb out of the sewer now and likely refute your claim GFPC. I am predicting the same old song and dance,

    It was a mistake!

    I am allowed to copy others work because I am a King!

    I bought the content from a member at Digital Point!

    My partner who I just fired did it.

    He has hundreds of sites all crap IMO. One of those I am too lazy and dishonest types acting like gipsies in playground full of tourists.

    Any program who takes this stuff seriously should banish this fellow. Well except for Affiliates United/cpays they love it when affiliates play dirty.

    GPWA throw this fellow out he has no purpose here. Alphonso69 would be better off stealing old ladies hand bags. I will give him $5.00 for leaving.

    This is insane! The Article wasn't even up a week and someone steals it? The website itself just started, so that tells me this guy comes here, reads everyone's posts and siggys, looks at thier sites just to steal what he wants?

    Unbelievable....and he is just plain lazy at it too, copy and paste, word for word??? how stupid.

    I know its sick considering all the sites he has.. so many.

    Its not like he needs the article. But why be a rotten thief?

    Heck just ask me if he can use it, and link back to me or something...

    But to outright steal it is so unethical..

    I dont care what it takes, but i am prepared to email every AM he has and let them know about this.

    If he becomes a man and apologizes and removes it from his sites and writes me a written apology i will consider it an error.

    But he already has ignored me like who cares...

    A CAP private member, a GPWA private member, a member of numerous boards all over the net... many relationships, and affiliatee deals..

    yet he has to steal my content... WOW what a real well lets leave it at that for now.

    AS it turns out he is also using an aff tag to win palace which belongs to AffActive Affiliate program a sponsor here at GPWA.

    I have posted a letter to Aff Active here

    I have emailed every AM from there, Ricko, Sophie, Daniel and Seam the marketing manager.

    I would hope they have an official policy on this and will make a statement.

    Please Aff Active do not condone content theft.

    Thank you

    Of course, this guy must be punished. I see he is asking about his commissions from Vegas Affiliates, which he earned from the stolen content.

    And really how it's possible to be a private member since 2005 with only one post which he made on the 1st of December, 2009?

    Sorry this happened to you Steve. You must be doing well though to be the target of so much of this stuff... it's usually a sign of success when others copy your work or ideas.

    So this member has been a private member since 05 and only posted once. Just adds credence to my argument that we need to tighten up the criteria for private membership.

    Anyway, don't want to derail your thread so I will say good luck. I hope all the aff programs shut this guy out and ship you any commissions he made off your content.

    Dear GFPC,

    This can happened even into the best families! Surely it is a discrace stealing others content and use it as your own as we all know how hard it is to even write a review or articles just 10 lines from personal experience!

    That 10 lines it could be few hours of research and that it is a really shame!

    Personally on my website World Top Casinos the news am using are not from my sources are from other sources but on each and every new on the bottom i have the ORIGINAL LOCATION from where that new came from and even on some cases i even have the name of the original author and his email!

    Bottom line if you are a LAZY guy ... at least copy items by the correct way and that is WITH THE PERMISION OF THE OWNER and at least give a credit to that poor guy who spent hours and hours of writting that artice by having AT LEAST his link on that page!

    It would be very fair. I have never heard that an affiliate program ships commissions of a content thief to a real content owner.

    GFPC,

    Considering this an early x-mas gift, I will pursue this fellow on many fronts. I feel strongly despite your best intentions the dark side keeps you in constant state of paranoia and disappointment.

    From the big bad boys at digital point to several members here who keep on ripping at you surly Alphonso69 deserves fair and equal treatment in return.

    Alphonso69 will always be known as “I made money by stealing others people work”. I Alphonso69 am site scrapper who loves automated bots working for me. I am lazy fellow who believes the only one that matters in this world is me. I am thief and will exploit the web to the fullest, I love spamdexing! I love cyber crime and strongly believe I deserve free lunches. I am Alphonso69 !

    I hope the programs ban this fellow and donate his earnings to charity or yourself. Those programs that do not, send a clear message of endorsing such behaviour and encourage people like Alphonso69. I also hope the GPWA fumigates its board of the likes of Alphonso69.

    So GFPC don’t feel this is only your problem it is ours and you’re not alone. I will work tirelessly on all fronts to make Alphonso69 scams turn against him.

    What a moron. So sorry this happened to you Steve, I have been down that road myself and I know how much it ticks me off. GPWA needs to take action on the guilty party.

    I noticed the article was removed now but that does not excuse the fact that it happened in the first place. We should have zero tolerance for copyright infringement.

    Guys thank you so much for your support. Each and everyone of you. Its such a honor to know other webmasters got my back and will help me when needed.

    I would do the same for all of you in the time of need. I am just so upset as this type of thing takes so long to fix.

    I really feel so good to know you are all here to help..

    That said i have spent so many hours at this, and i am continually contacting all his affiliate managers and business associations. Its going to be a very long process.... but i will not let this go....

    He refused to contact me even at the request of Sophie from Aff Active. She has informed me she contacted him to contact me.

    He has been on this forum. I contacted him and he is ignoring me completely.

    At least an apology was warranted. Nothing came... So i continue to fight this matter because its the right thing to do.

    I formally ask GPWA and all affiliate programs to shut down his accounts until he makes an official statement.

    Ignoring this matter will not make it go away.

    I have yet to hear an official reply from Slotocash and Aff Active the two programs he used his aff code directly to gain players from my content.

    I ask now that GPWA move this to membership polling seeking his removal from GPWA for unethical behaviour and content theft.

    On another front and i am sorry to say another webmaster has now stolen this same article..

    This of course will be posted in another thread!!

    Alphonso69 i know your on the forum you read my message you got messages from Sophie at Aff active....

    Come here please like a man of honor and explain your actions.

    Please
