    Hiya

    I was looking at the RTG list on this site and saw a casino called HippoJo and that it was pending Accredit.

    Well, I put in the addy ( I have comcast) and my provider redirected me to a warning page telling me not to go this website because they are known for identity theft.

    I just wanted to let you know. This is the first time my internet provider ever prevented me from going to a website and it got me worried for anyone out there wanting to gamble there.

    oops...

    I signed up at hippojo yesterday, turned the free 8 euros into 118 euros and fulfilled the WR. Provided them with the required documents in order to get my withdrawal. Havent heard anything yet, hope the copy of my passport and cc are safe :eek:


    Emailed support and got this answer from the casino:

    "I have no idea why that persons ISP would show things like that - I can assure you that HippoJo takes upmost care with all ID documentation, we have actually closed some player accounts on suspected identity theft grounds.
    ....
    Cheers

    Thanks for the post and we are contacting Comcast to have them change their rating now. Babs7262 I'd appreciate if you could PM me with any additional information Comcast provided you.

    These Hippo Jo guys have a reputation in the industry as straight dealers, known to the 'Meister and several others on the forum including myself.

    I'm sure Comcast has screwed up on this, unless it is a misguided attempt to divert their (Comcast) clients from online gambling!

    HippoJo could sue Comcast for defamation, as this is what has just happened here on the forum, with the OP shocked to be presented with this allegation, and then posted their experience which has another player worried.
    It could be that a "spoof" site with a very similar name has been involved in "phishing", and this is how the casino got onto the Comcast blacklist.
    My ISP does not stop me visiting HippoJo, but I have not joined as there were some posts about delays in payment (teething problems?), and at the time I knew nothing about any application for full accreditation here (although I suspected this would be coming).

    I tried something else

    I googled hippojo and went through an affiliate and got through without a warning this time. I am very confused.

    I wasnt trying to cause any problem, I just wanted to visit this site.

    I think this may be the problem: On the list in this site it is called HippoJo Casino but in other sites it's just called hippojo.com

    Could that be the cause?

    Just to clear up the confusion - our URL is You must register/login in order to see the link. and not You must register/login in order to see the link. as it appears babs7262 was trying to reach.

    I just checked out hippojocasino.com - and it does indeed come up with a spammy page that redirects to You must register/login in order to see the link., which is the site triggering the warning in babs7262's message.

    Odd coincidence that they came up with "HippoJo" for their casino pages, must be a common casino name eh:rolleyes:

    Looks like members buy cheap (crap?) products and sell them on through a nest of cheap domains, very automated, and virtually impossible to trace who is really responsible when a sale "goes wrong".

    They seem to be based in the USA, so it may be possible to get "hippojocasino" shut down on the grounds it is an attempt to steal traffic from the genuine hippjo casino. There have been new rules against this "domain squatting", and similar domains have been ordered offline where they target the same area of commerce as the original owner. If not, tell the DoJ this lot are "promoting online gambling" to US citizens, and from US soil too!
    Comcast have clearly seen this site for what it is, but I had no warning from my ISP - I don't think they offer this service.

    The moral of the tale? Use Casinomeister's links:D


    The actual URL was not mentioned when HippoJo was first discussed on the forum, so guessing "HippoJoCasino" would be a logical try.

    This would not be the first time a casino has had it's name hijacked to gather traffic from internet users not quite sure of the exact URL
