    Default Heads up Affiliate Managers

    We have just been notified that an individual has registered onlinescasinoreviewer.com and is contacting affiliate programs with something like the following:

    Hi,


    We are looking to add new casinos to our listings for hybrid CPA/Rev share deals in March. Can you please let me know what you currently have to offer?

    We will not work with casinos that take American players.

    Let me know!


    Cheers,

    Waybe Paddock
    Advertising Manager EU
    wayne@onlinescasinoreviewer.com
    onlinescasinoreviewer.com
    Skype:wayne.paddock.review
    Now it seems that Mr Paddock, if that is his real name, is trying to make out that his site is mine -www.onlinecasinoreviewer.com - As his site redirects to my site.

    Just a heads up.

    Yep I got it although after a spate of these recently I am guessing most AM's are aware of the scam now or at least I hope they are!!

    For reference - Most affiliate managers should know this, but most sites have a dedicated page for advertisers. Certaintly we do on Online Casino Reviewer. Whereby proper contact details are made available. AM's should always double check those pages out, to make sure they do not fall for this scam.

    I have added a warning for advertisers about this scam on the home page of OCR: www.onlinecasinoreviewer.com

    Second paragraph below the casino grid.

    For anyone else experiencing this sort of thing you should be able to use htaccess to stop it:

    In your htaccess file put the following lines where "offendingdomain" is the domain name that is sending the redirect and "somedir/somepage.html" is where you want to send any traffic from that redirect to:

    PHP Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond 
    %{HTTP_REFERER} (offendingdomain) [NC,OR]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) somedir/somepage.html?$[L,R

    replikizegarkow.net
    top-use.net
    viagra24.org
    wettanbieter-vergleich.info
    online-casino-ohne-tischlimit.com


    Cheers

    We got the email recently. I also spent time answering this guy. If he responds and gives the impression of representing your biz in any way I'll let you know.

    We haven't received this either...yet. But if you look closely, you can see that these guys (if they are the same as the those behind pokerslistings) like to add an extra "s" somewhere in the name of the website/email address. Such as pokerSlistings and onlineScasinoreviewer.

    Thanks for the heads-up!
