Its standard spam nothing to do with CWC. I see loads of similar in my spam trap every week. These muppets just send out millions of these with random casino names on the basis that a) even if 0.01% of the recipients they hit are members and click thru they can still make some money or, more likely, b) they want to plant a virus/trojan/key logger on your PC. The giveaways are the gmail address, the .com.br in the message id and the .be domain you'e supposed to click on and may contain the virus ready to plant.

Cast the net wide and see what it drags in.

I get hundreds of spam emails every week sent by.....me! Apparently. :rolleyes:

Heatherad,

I think CW has been hit by those nasty spammers from King Dice (GoldVIP) I got an email yesterday that I thought was from CW and it was from them.

Nasty little buggers!!

I was pretty certain it was spam by the pointers Simmo listed. I'm just hoping casinos getting targeted like this are aware of all these little sidetricks that the spammers are trying to pull off.
Thanks for the confirmation there Simmo! and anniemac :thumbsup:

Sidenote: Just noticed too they are getting very creative now with sending promo mail named after Lauren who works promo at ClubWorld...geesh!

Took note of the edit :)
Won't ask what the cat was doing in your hand though :p

Heather, when did you open your account with ClubWorld?

I believe it was May, 2007.
I just sent a copy of the email to support at ClubWorld. Figured it wouldn't hurt in seeing it.

The reason I asked is because I don't recall getting one of those emails - thus it probably wasn't mailed out to all CWC customers. Maybe just a fluke, you know, like those phishing emails you sometimes get from this bank or that bank claiming that they need you to update your information because they've upgraded their security procedures? Sometimes they actually get my bank name right :D

Ah yes, the good old fake bank emails! Almost had me fall for one of those once but contacted my bank first :)
Guess I'm just blown away with this recent rash of spam emails using ClubWorlds name. I can honestly say that in all the time I have been a customer there, I have never gotten a spam email from someone using their casino name. It hasn't been until recently that they have started to pour in.

I think Club World would be appreciative if you sent every spam-like email using their name, so that they could get to the bottom of this. I think it should also be obvious that they're not changing their name or casino links :)

I think that if Club World continues to carry a "who cares" attitude, then they're in for a shock from those players that get this and don't know any better.

Did I miss something? Where did Club World exhibit a "who cares" attitude? For all we know the next newsletter or mailing from them will alert players to a problem with spam mailings and assuring you that they will continue to be at the same location and links and will continue to provide the same quality service, and to ignore any such spam mailings.

There isn't a whole lot more they can do than that.

Anyhow, now we have mailings from Brazil and Belgium... if a few more people would post their headers, perhaps we can put two and two together?

Why not just forward every one of these to CW? It's obvious that this isn't an isolated incident...

Hello all,

Thank you for raising this issue for my attention and for your input.

This is something that we are taking extremely seriously and we are doing everything possible to put a stop to these emails.

If all of you could forward a copy of any further emails of this nature that you receive to our customer services team it would be very helpful.

I would strongly advise you not to click on any of the links or visit any of the URLS in the emails as they could well lead to viruses or other malware.

Please let me know if you have any further comments or questions,

Kind Regards
Tom

When you open the email link, it is King Dice. I sent a copy to Club World but they weren't too concerned.

Hi Everyone

I can tell you that these spam e mails are not from Club World

The spammers are deliberately using our good name in the subject line in the hope that you will read the e mail, if you do click on the link, and i really advise against this you will see that the download is for GoldVIPClub

We are very concerned about this and are looking into who is sending these spam e mails

Thank you for your time.
