Looks like you have been added to a spam bot list

It happens best thing to do is just block the up that's heading in and the email addy eventually it will stop its takes time but it does stop in the end
It's very annoying

I am getting numerous casino spam texts on my mobile lately too, so somebody's been naughty somewhere with my number as I've always opted out. Yesterday I had Arse (Ares) Casino, one of those scam 16668/JAZ operations. Half the time there's no number so you can't block them and NEVER reply to the opt-out number.

There's often a 5 or 6 digit number behind the SMS.

on an iPhone (it's probably similar for other phones)...

you open the message

Click on the name, then on audio call

The phone will attempt to call, if there's a number behind it, then quickly fail.
Go to recent calls and select info (i) for the failed number, scroll down then select 'block caller'

The number for 'Hello' was 43 556

It could be worse, and you could have made it onto 123Casinos spam list of stolen email addresses. Reported to the casinos on his site and none have done anything, so I'm waiting until I get 1000 in my junk folder, which shouldn't be much longer, then going to set up a script to forward each one to each casino support and affiliate department over a few hours, see how they like it. @Mr Green-Redbet_Customer supportRep @EveBgo you are both on there.

Every email in the junk folder is the same and was brought up here

Spammer! - BGO, MrGreen, any reason why I'm getting 100's of spam emails from your affiliate?

'drano of nature' sounds interesting :eek2: seems to be a lot of health ones there Viking, must be some sort of health spam conglomerate, I'm getting lots of bitcoin/compensation/work from home ones plus a few dodgy based casinos sneaking in.

Do you have to individually delete them or does your email account allow you to just delete the whole folder full?

I heard advice once the worse thing you can do is use the 'please take me off your mail list' as that just tells them your email is a live active account.

That is strange to be that frequent, I deleted my spam box earlier when I typed that post and touch wood I've had no further spam today, someone ought to do an undercover expose of these spam email merchants, if they haven't, it's about time it's brought to more public attention again, because surely the internet companies could improve their algorithms to detect and block the stuff rather than deliver it.

I assume if you click on any of the embedded links in the messages you get a trojan downloaded onto your pc/device, which can then keylogg any passwords and bank card info you type in.

Frequent is understatement :) this is just since 6pm
I never click any of thos links im more computer wise then that ? It just pisses me off
Might just change email on some selected casinos then close this one down
Had it for 15 years so lots of casinos connected to it
So no way to know who gave or sold out my address BE0388E6-9361-46AC-B55F-F937F84AF348.jpeg

That's a ridiculous rate of churn for a few hours, yes I think some of the lesser casinos and associates are as leaky as a sieve when it comes to protecting customer's email info.

The bbc did a report on the junk mail merchants sending people false prize letters and competitions, the elderly tenant's homes were literally full of post, thousands and thousands of letters and items of mail, shocking there must be a sizeable industry of folk involved in running these scams.

Casino spam has broken through my email shield, noticed up an upsurge, it's in good company now with all the 'local birds that want to date me' emails, and today's charmer 'wipe out herpes!' :eek2:

I ignore all spams, or just block them - I use spamarrest for my two main email addys - one address I've had since 1996. And I'm not going to let the spammers win with that one. LOL

And I do get an SMS every once in a while - usually from some crap hole in Curacao - no idea how they got my number. Someone must have gotten hacked. Or LeoVegas or someone sold my info (or employee theft - which is more likely).

What I do find annoying are the jerk offs who call from Microsoft on my land line, telling me I have a virus. When I'm not busy, I play along with them acting all scared "what?? oh no! I have a virus, what do I do?" then after a bit I start talking about the word of Jesus, or about space aliens, or about insects or something - whatever to see how annoying I can be. The longer I waste their time, the longer they can't be scamming someone else. I lost it on one guy once and gave him a colorful piece of my mind. He called me back and started yelling at ME! That made my day. :p

1. Yep, and these always come on Friday tea time UK time, obviously what they consider 'peak gambling period'...

2. Had that once, some woman calling from India or Bradford, did the same then got bored and and told her to f*ck-off and get cholera.
