I've been getting spammed recently by some a-hole who has harvested emails off of Casinomeister.com. These spam mails are the following:

I've been deleting these as they come in, but today I decided to check out just who this asshole is. The casino website is totally nondescript, but for the links "Fair Gaming" and "Completely Safe" you're forced to download the casino software.

Well, I downloaded it and began the install - it's Vegas Red Casino.

I'm searching for aff links, and I hope to find them shortly.

I'm also contacting Vegas Red to let them know they have a problem on their hands. These are the affiliates that should be drawn and quartered. Spam mails and deceptive websites such as these are inexcusable.

I've had this one loads of times. But i also had it to a hotmail email address that is "unknown" at Casinomeister. In fact pretty much anywhere as I don't use it except for one or two research accounts at the less reputable casinos.

Googling the website brings the peacock and also a second sender address:

But googling the other website brings you to - lots of places.

I have had quite a few of them too. The thing is they keep getting new domain names, and them discarding the domain. So in a couple of weeks time the below sites will no longer work

I have

The only ones I could find for the moment, but they don't work any more, so I would advise taking a hard copy of the html and pictures if you report them, as by the time they look into it, the site will no longer be there

I'm getting half a dozen or so of these things per day, too. Different titles and different email addresses in the 'from'. Different link addys also. The most recent:

$lots-Blackjack-More <[email protected]>
Visit theHiRoller Casino where we give you $$ toPlay!
LiveDealers, JackpotSlots, MuchMORE!
XhttpX://www.goesdoing.com

I checked the 'source' on this email. It's full of weird stuff you don't see when you look at the 95% white page email, a couple of different languages, and ... well... here's a snippet from the English bit:

he next general meeting of both WSSA and Iota Iota Iota will be
October 4th at 8:00pm in DM 212.

Just a couple quick announcements:

WSSA and Iota Iota Iota each have a webpage.....

And another ... what language?:
Wat ontzettend leuk dat ze Jack, Sarina en de andere genetisch
gemanipuleerden nog een keer hebben teruggehaald. Gelukkig is er,
ondanks de verwikkelingen rond o.a. Dax en Sisko, ook nog aandacht voor
de anderen en Bashir verdient natuurlijk veel eigen afleveringen.

And another snippet from another section:
IWACO is een internationaal adviesbureau voor water en milieu, met
vestigingen in binnen- en buitenland. Bij IWACO werk je in een informele
sfeer samen met hooggekwalificeerde collega's. Als adviseur heb je een
grote eigen verantwoordelijkheid. Je krijgt volop de ruimte creatieve
opiossingen te bedenken voor de vaak ....

I have no idea WTF it's saying so pardon if there's something vile in the languages I don't read. Why hide that crap in emails?

For a long period I was spammed with 5-10 emails every day.

A few weeks ago I decided to se if it was possible to stop the spamming as it is a pain in the b..

Via Google I found this page
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
- they send warning information to the internet service provider responsible for hosting the services used by the spammer.

Well, I filed a free report on each of the spammails I had received the last two days and havnt received any spammails for the last 14 days !

Try them, I am quite sure it will help you get rid of these irritating mails.

Ok, now that I have the right thread...lol


I too am sick of getting this crap from vegas red. Don't bother with the email address, it's a fake. I've reported this to the registrar, as it's in violation of ICANN rules to register with any fake info.

One ray of light, give 'em a call, I've confirmed the phone # via reverse lookup. It does match the address & name :)

Here's the contact information for one of the affiliates in question (pulled the info from the spam domain they used in this instance)

Domain: galoren.com

I've been in touch with the casino, and they say they've been aware of this problem. It seems as though there are a team of affiliates working together on this.

So are they planning on doing anything about this?

Every single email is the same. Every email points to the exact same webpage; IE: Same affliate code, same affiliate. When a domain is shutdown for abuse, they move to a new one. Only then do the emails change.

The IP addresses that they originate from, however, are different. This could mean there are multiple people working on the same affiliate account, or the affiliate in question is simply finding a ton of insecure mailservers.

Having said that, I think their response is total BS. I could understand if there were multiple domains involved in the spam mails, but when every single one points to the same domain......


[edit]
And seeing as how the mails never change, the first report they recieve that matches the email in question, they should shut down the affiliate account right then and there. No questions asked, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

Obviously they're turning a blind eye to this. If they cancelled the affiliate account in question, why does the spam continue?

I get about 10-20 emails a day PER ACCOUNT. I have many email accounts and tons of these mails. I am sure that they can shut down the affiliate. If they do, then we won't get emails because it would not be of benefit to these a-holes.


I don't even know how they get the email addy's. Some of my email addy's are used only to communicate to affiliate programs. :(

If thats the case the affiliate program either gave them your email address or they stole it from the affilaite program.

If you're sick of it too,

Forward copies of these emails to [email protected]. This is the contact addresses for the servers they're using for hosting.

The spammers actually have directory listing enabled, and the dates on alot of those directories were from May, so they've been using this company all along.

Miraculously, I have not received any HiRoller spam for several days in either of my email accounts that were 'hit'.

I would rather their affiliate program (probably Casino Partners) shut down their account instead of their server's being shut down. It is quite easy to get another set of servers, but if all their 'hard work' is gone because they cannot promote Vegas Red (I believe that is the skin they are using) anylonger - then it may be a while before they are back in business.

Yes, it's CasinoPartners, and they've been contacted also. Haven't heard back from them because it's the weekend.

Not to burst anyone's bubble but that's only one of dozens of registrars. Several of these go back to highroller themselves, which tells me that vegasred exists solely to spam people.

Here's a list of domains I've been tracking on this one:

Link Removed ( Old/Invalid) <- the most recent one spammed using a geocities domain.


Every single one of them is hosted in different locations, with distinct DNS, etc.


Here's the whois for the first domain in that list:

Code:
Whois Record for Wirelessonce.com

Name Server: NS2.H1R0LLER.INFO


Note the name server host...

Casinopartners has not responded to any of the numerous requests I made to investigate this issue. They are certainly aware of it, but appear to be choosing not to do anything about it or communicate their alleged progress on this issue to anyone.

Thought I'd contribute to this thread since this is the only legitimate forum I could find where it was being discussed.

I lost a family member to a gambling related suicide last year and the fact that I continue to receive these spams is insulting in the extreme. I certainly would NEVER sign up for these emails but these spammers don't care.

Anyway there it is. If anyone has any idea how we can shut these morons down I am all ears.

I have forwarded one email... However, I am giving them 1 week to clean it up. After that WE should all forward the SPAM mails to CP. Flood THEIR inboxes for a change.
