    riccardo@best-bonus.info ricardo mattias

    this man is the best - for me he is spammer of the year
    most of his spam landing in inbox, also he informing customers every time that they received "newsletter" because theyve opted-in .

    But he is very very stupid or ... greedy - sending spam every day , sometimes 2 times daily.
    Last one is spam from Focalclick, Omni Casino bonus:

    "hi , receive 40 credits on the house ...

    You've received this email because you have opted into a mailing list."

    Are you sure that the sender is actually the email you posted or is that just the reply to or other?

    Just because the email arrives and "appears" to have come from that sender does not mean they are the ones doing the mailings....

    It was to help others to identify it easier.

    Header infos:

    From: "Riccardo+Mattias"+<riccardo@best-bonus.info>
    Reply-To: wildmikes@hmamail.com

    I must change opinion - he isnt so good because his emails landing in inboxes only for small services. For gmail, yahoo etc he is poor spammer
    He using special landing pages created by casinos for choosen affiliates.

    Examples:
    http://www.lesacasino.com/lp/1/
    http://www.omnicasino.com/home/5nodeposit40free.asp

    The from and the reply to is still not enough....since both of those could be randomly inserted during mailings....

    I wish mail server software would not accept mail from ANY other mail server whenever these fields are forged/changed, but the reality is that it can be forged or fake so that alone isn't enough....

    Now if the link advertised in the message is also the same domain, then that is a good indication.

    Or if the affiliate tag contained in the link in the message matches that of the person named in the from field that also is a good bit of evidence....

    Honestly:

    Ive found here thread about spam - thats why i posted here some examples.
    Im not trying to fight against spam because for me its similar advertising method to promotional leaflets (both things nobody like , but big % read it).Im trying to understand only , why and for what are these all official anti-spam policies.

    wildmikes@hmamail.com , its anonynmous of course , same as hidden aff link in spam message - landing pages arent anonymous and believe me , i dont want to know which affiliate "rent mailing service" to send it. (if landing page is from affiliate which advertising on own website , we dont need any casino support to check it using ... google)

    First, it is NOT anonymous....

    Second, it costs money....to the recipient (the one recieving the email pays in increased hosting costs [whether you believe it or not], lost time [time is money], lost productivity, and since no one likes recieving spam, it makes a bad impression on the casinos as well.

    The fact that the programs have this in their terms, violating the term can cause the affiliate to lose their account and commissions from any players previously sent.

    If an affiliate does spam, it doesn't make sense for them to do so without ultimately sending the recipient to a casino with an affiliate link, so this allows the programs to determine who is spamming so they can take action against the affiliate.

    If you spam you deserve to lose your affiliate account if after being warned by the affiliate program not to.....and many also think that warnings should not be necessary since you have already agreed to a set of terms that you won't.

    OK, there is likely NO ONE at the GPWA that hates or combats spam more than me!!

    Spam costs me REAL MONEY as my mail server handles MILLIONS of spam emails every single month and that costs me money in bandwith and TIME combatting the problem.

    However, just because you get an email that claims Fred@domain1.fake was the sender OR the reply to address does NOT proved that Fred had anything to do with sending the email.

    Some mailing software will use fake senders and fake reply to addresses and sometimes those fake emails are picked from the mailing list at rtandom...which means you could be on a mailing list to receive spam and the next guy on the list gets an email with YOUR email address as the sender or the reply to....which means if they go to a forum to complain about spam they post YOUR real email address as the spammer....

    Guess what, the spam bots will pick up your email address and add you to even more mailing lists so you get more spam....

    So by posting email addresses of people you claim sent the email you could be falsely accusing innocent people of sending spam when they themselves are victims....

    Casino Rewards brands. For the others you will need to contact the affiliate manager responsible for the brand.

    Cheers
