ThePogg has just posted a warning to all players regarding CasinoBlocker.com.
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
is well worth the read but here's the upshot:
... the owners of this organisation must surely be aware that they are charging vulnerable players – players who have in all likelihood already lost more money gambling than they can afford to lose – for a service that does not work. Even setting aside the highly questionable function of the system, if the published casino database is accurate this service is currently advertising that it contacts 200+ operators and in actual fact only contacting 8.
Basically it appears that you pay for something that does not and cannot do what it professes to do which is to self-exclude players from a great number of casinos at a stroke, for a fee.

Whether this is an outright scam -- probable IMHO -- or just the result of being woefully misguided and flat out ignorant of how the industry does its business is unclear. Either way you ain't gonna get whatever it is you think you are buying.

To be fair, they do only list the 8 sites where they will exclude the Accounts for you (at /casinodatabase/) but yeah, still very much misleading with the '200+' and seems like a scam. One can only hope that typos like "Close Acsounts" and the poorly worded English makes People who found this site get suspicious and not use them.

This has scam written all over it - literally! It's not developed by an English speaker for a start with bad grammar and translations for example:

casinoblocker-scam.jpg

This is likely some Chinese or Indian scammer judging by the English and poor words.

It has a simple search tool which brings up the name of a casino when you start typing and many of the obvious popular ones aren't even in its poxy search tool!

It goes on to claim that it can block ALL your casino accounts for 1,3 or 6 months. That's big bollocks too as 1 or 3 months is TAB and 6 months is SE.

They then claim to do all the work for you. More bollocks as they would need your username at all the casinos, and even then what frigging casino would accept a third party trying to close/SE your account?

PEOPLE - THERE IS ONLY ONE LEGITIMATE CLOSE-ALL ENTITY AVAILABLE AND THAT'S THE NEW UKGC SCHEME WHICH THE CASINOS MUST ADHERE TO AND ACT UPON IF YOUR NAME AND DETAILS ARE ON THE EXCLUSION LIST.

No bastard else has any authority to do this en masse on your behalf.

If you give ANY personal details to this shower of crap then you are as barking as our visitor Mr. Krishna from yesterday!

Lets look at the evidence...

1. Hosted with ONE.COM - a company that offers the first year FREE then £1.89 each year there after. They only offer shared, cheap hosting with no dedicated facilities.

2. Complete privacy - They registered the domain on the 8th August 2018 with a residential Sweden address then added domain privacy a day later (9th August 2018)

3. There are no contact details, privacy policy or terms of use. Breach of EU law - General Data Protection Regulation 2018.

4. They claim to contact 200 casinos on your behalf to close your account. After requesting closure there is no verification that you are actually the person you say you are, this breaches so many laws in the UK and Europe. One of the reasons GAMSTOP took so long to get going was the ID checking which had to meet Data Protection guidelines. (Third party verification)

Just recently they have been muck-spreading where I live, and this site stinks more than that :p
