    Sure did Steve,

    Used them off and on for 10 plus years. Never did great with them and placement was mostly secondary but many players and always money.

    I responded to this at AGD, but I'll re-post my comments here:

    VA, this is unacceptable.

    Affiliates, DO NOT PROMOTE VEGAS AFFILIATES! They are a rogue outfit and will steal your residual income if you speak publicly about their unethical behavior. They threatened to do this to me last year, and today they actually did it to pdjoe. (Actually they did steal a big chunk of my residual income as punishment -- but not quite all of it -- yet.)

    Obviously nothing has changed at VA -- threats and bully tactics are still the norm.

    Thanks Dave,

    Sorry to hear your earnings dwindled away too!


    It's time for this program to take a hike.

    Wow that is troubling pdjoe. Sorry to hear that. If you need some forum of press release or such things I can post them on one of my sites in the news section and possibly some other stuff.

    Thanks Steve,

    I'm not sure how to handle this situation yet but we'll see what happens.


    What if all programs close our accounts for rogues pages when they have earned them? This could turn into a pretty big issue for all of us I think.

    Thanks for the support Steve and time will tell what the people think.

    Dear pdjoe,

    We apologize for this temporary action taken from our side to put your account on Inactive status. The reason is that we have tried to contact you for months and sent continuous e-mails (registered in our system and whois), they either returned with an error or haven't been replied to. This action was to get in contact with you to resolve all current issues *(your account is active now).

    Thank you for your understanding

    Hi all,

    Vegas Affiliates should be blacklisted.
    They have no concern for their affiliate partners - least not until people go public then they make up excuses to justify their sub standard treatment.

    Personally I've heard it all before.

    After reading yet another complaint about VA over at AGD last year I added an article to my blog: http://www.dodgyonlinecasinohistory....iate-industry/

    Frankly Vegas Affiliates should be kicked to the curb.

    Maybe that and other articles about Vegas Affiliates are taking their toll, because I received an email from VA asking me to amend my blog article. They further stated Vegas Affiliates are changing and making progress - well that's just utter BS.

    One example of this BS relates to WCD over at AGD who posted 01/05/2011 he was still waiting on his November payment. I believe that payment was to be used for Christmas - so that's 1 affiliate who by accounts had a less than enjoyable day.

    http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/for...nts-t3630.html

    I told em to go cry on someone else's door step. As far as I'm concerned Vegas Affiliates brought all this flack onto themselves and continue to show little regard for their affiliate partners.

    I kicked their butt to the curb ages ago and am glad I did because they (VA) are nothing but trouble and drama.


    Cheers



    Dave

    They totally bent me over backwards - a year plus of consistent winners then after months of me complaining in public they come out and say it was a fraud player and remove all my income. Averaged 3000+ a month with them for 5+ years - now I make ZERO! Income gone over night -

    GPWA couldnt care less - they will continue to push them onto newbies after all they are getting paid!!! Michael Corfman is blinded by the benjamins!

    All I know is that I made good money with your program for 6+ years then BAM practically over night it was gone! Other than that I know nothing at all about the reasoning you supplied me.

    chiming in to note support.

    ...

    okay, noted.
    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.
