Hello, I'm new to the forums, but I'm wondering if anyone else is getting the same problem as me. Before I used to get email spam all the time, which I didn't care about but now it's coming in the mail too. Latest one just received from blackjackballroom.com for an "exclusive $500 bonus".

I've only ever entered my home address into 3 casinos.
Intercasino
Playboygaming Casino
3Dice

I don't believe it is 3dice because I just signed up with them 3 days ago.

I have a feeling that it is Playboygaming (an accredited casino here) just because they randomly sent me an installation CD when I stopped playing there for a while.

So I am wondering if theres anyone here that actually has a Playboygaming account and has the same problem as me? Or did they somehow get my information from another source? :confused:

Thanks

Once the information is out there, you have lost control of it.

I have also received snail mail offers for casinos and poker, and it seems the problem might be related to casinos using rather questionable third party marketing outfits.

They pay these outfits to market the casino, but don't control how they go about it. There marketing companies can obtain your personal details from many different sources, and even have software to make up a "guess" from a raft of incomplete sets of partial details, and if their guess is good, it looks like someone has sold your exact details.

It is likely that the government is involved, as it makes much of our details publically available, certainly enough for a snail mail mass marketing campaign. Some casinos will join in by cross marketing between their own brands, since they do not see this as "passing your details to a third party".

A dead giveaway (for me at least), is when they contact my WIFE, or refer to me as "Mrs", that gets them busted straight away, as I am male, and single. I have even had phonecalls for the mythical "Mrs V. Weatherman";)"

Casino Rewards are very bad when it comes to this bulk mailing, and I am pretty sure they pass our Email addresses on to their own outsourced marketing companies in order to cross market ALL their casinos to individual players (which then tends to get their points locked anyway:confused:).

Thanks for the quick responses, I'll take your word for it since I have no other reason or evidence to believe otherwise.

I do apologize if I have given off the wrong impression about playboygaming.
