    The fact they also want to 'touch your base' concerns me too.

    I got this mailing too Dave....

    Must have a forged header since the message id is your domain, but the reply to address is the one with the "s"

    We had multiple Affiliate Managers at Income Access receive this email.
    To see if there was any legitimacy, we replied, and received the following:

    “Hi Harry, I am sorry I missed you on Skype. I spoke to my boss and we are somewhat flexible in moving forward with your company.
    I also wanted to take this time to show you some examples of how well our sites rank for various important words.”


    I had never spoken to him on Skype, so this message is likely the automated response to anyone who replied to his email.
    What’s interesting is that he wasn't just asking for a tenancy fee, he was talking about rev share/CPA hybrid deals.

    “Depending on the spot, we can consider doing a 3-4 month test on a hybrid of rev share CPA or Rev Share a a monthly tenancy fee. If all goes well, we can move over to a pure rev share partnership.”


    Perhaps that line was just opening the door to a tenancy fee .... who knows.
    We'll cut off all communications with him as well.

    We got this email with the added 's' as well.

    Seems to be quite a few of these going around, thanks for the heads up though!

    Default Almost got scammed

    We almost struck a deal with him as he approached us right after LAC.

    David/Michael - I sent you an e-mail. We have his Skrill ID which we are now following up with Skrill directly and the communication thread, inclusive of your sites Google analytics etc.

    Well structured scam.

    Another scam was going about - Jeff www.onlinecasinoadvise.com and Adam/Sarah - onlinecaisnoadvisior.com

    be ware of those.
    It is the nature of the wise to resist pleasures, but the foolish to be a slave to them

    Thanks Yana, just back in the office after the long weekend - I'll be getting round to your email shortly.

    I have found the person responsible for this scam and his domain has been repossessed by GoDaddy, he is responsible for quite a few different casino scams so it's very likely he is responsible for the onlinecasinoadvise.com etc. scams.

    I have his contact details and address saved which I'll pass on to you shortly.

    Cheers
