This was a few months ago.
Not sure if this came as a result of 888 staff selling my details or what. But, whoever sent this did get the timeframe correct of when i played poker at 888 (and i think i may have sent ecogra a question regarding complaints about 888 when i played poker there, which was some 8-9 years ago now lol.
The reason i thought perhaps one of the 888 staff sold my info is because the account name they refferred to at 888 which i used at the time, was indeed correct as well. But 888 staff wouldnt have known i ever complained to ecogra, but im not 100% i did. Only 75%.


Title: i'll help with incidents with pacific poker (ECOGRA'S request #3767)

Hi Mr. adam xxxxxx ! You have left a complaint on 2010-01-18 on eCOGRA #3767. Account : "xxxxxxx". I will resolve your dispute with the service in a short time, for a reward. Pay the amount equivalent to 30 USD per bitcoin purse: 357DNTjKQ5cW1C8KnzU97DWdfAcpDWj6hU. The result will take less than 3 working days from the date of payment. In the payment comment specify the request number: "3767". If your payment details have changed, please indicate them in the comments to the payment, after the request number. (example: "3767; VISA 1111-2222-3333-444"). In the end, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from me."


Emailed ecogra just to let them know really, and also because i had a flashback that i may well of made a complaint at that time so wondered if it was somethng to do with an staff member at ecogra selling complaint details or something being hacked, since i was suprised the person who sent it to me knew the account name i played with at 888, the time of playing 888, and my email.


The director at ecogra replied with this:

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It is definitely a scam and does not appear to have originated from any of our databases as the reference numbers do not exist. At the time of the alleged dispute we did not use reference numbers and over the past 3 years our dispute reference numbers look like this [xxxx.xxxxxx.xxx.xxxxxx.xxx.xxxxxxx]]. On top of this, they have also targeted me with emails almost identical to the one sent to you, and I have obviously never submitted a dispute. We are investigating where this originated and will take whatever action is available to us. Best regards "

Haha, i deleted the email mate.. if by "collected" it you mean i kept the email.
But i never deleted the reply from the director at ecogra, which had all the original details, quoted back to me in full :)
Deleting emails is futile for me, my email address dates back to when dialup internet became available, the address ending in 'hotmail.com'. Probably be hard to find a scammer who doesn't have my addy by now :)

I get soo many junk. It really frustrates and annoys me.

I am forever reporting 50-100 emails each day, but there is emails I can not report because they mask their email address and put my email address in the senders email address. So I then just have to delete those ones.

But I will give you all a run down of the types I get.

Main culprits: Bitcoin spammy emails, Lottery win phishing emails, sexy girl spammy emails, erection emails, viagra emails, then once in a while I get an email that says my computer has been hacked phishing emails. Those ones are the funniest ones as they even mention a password for my computer that is totally not my password lol. Then Honourable mention is the email that says my email address has been hacked as well and those emails also show a password and again that password is not real either. I mean are they really that stupid and dumb? People are really that stupid to think an email like that is genuine when the password listed in the email is wrong, that is and should be a warning sign to you that it is just a phishing scam email.

So yeah sick of the junk, but we will always get them. Doesn't matter how many times we report or delete such emails either.
