Inetbet refuses to stop sending me spam. I just counted how many requests I have made to be removed from there email list. I have requested 4 times in 2 weeks to be removed. I have received spam from the roguest of the rogues, and when I request for these rogues to remove me they actually do it. How can an accredited casino refuse to follow such a simple request. It is really aggravating.

I dont mean to be argumentative but how many spam per day do you get

from the govt of Nigeria telling you you just won the lottery but you have to send $5000 for processing

From the folks who wants to enlarge your penis with a free sample of a pill

From a Bank who tells you that they need to update your personal information

and so forth
I get at least 100 spams perday and there is the "empty" button and shazam its all gone
no aggravation no nothing part of life be happy

Every one is different pal. You might only find it slightly irksome to delete 100 spam mails a day but another may be vastly irritatedwith just one spam mail. Futhermore, if the spam did come from an accredited casino they are obligated to stop sending such mails on request. It would be a different thing if it were the affiliates that were bombarding BMW with such stuff.

yes after requesting to be removed i figured it had to be coming from affiliates, but nope coming from inet emails. I dont get 100 spams per day from lottery's or penis pills. I have a good filter. I signed up for Inet a long time ago thats why I get the emails. It aggravating because i excpected to be removed after the 1st unsubscribe request, but 4 request later and still not removed.

This doesn't sound like iNetBet's MO at all. In fact I seem to remember something like this happening about a year ago, in the end it did indeed turn out to be a rogue affiliate.

Please forward one or more of these spam emails to me via Attach Removed (Old not found)
I need to be able to see the full headers of the email so copy-paste won't do it; use your emailer's "Forward" button.

If the header info is complete, etc, I'll forward it to iNetBet people for comment.

Long before online casinos there were spams. I dont delete 100spams
one at a time MAXD...It's one click on the empty button.

The latest as I was reading this morning in the NYT that robocallers are now able to disguse their call by changing their number to a company name to fool the callerID. nOW WHAT IS NEXT..wll, just as in the spam case I don't answer any calls not in my address book.

:confused: Sorry, I don't follow. What are you trying to say?

@BMWSTACK: Please check your PMs. The casino is trying to reach you to get to the bottom of this.
OR, PM me your user name at iNetBet and I'll forward it to them.
Either way the ball is in your court, please respond ASAP.

I just sent the rep my information. I just looked at the most recent emails, one received mon & tues. They had different headings, one just james and one was csr rep jane, either way both came from the email of [email protected]. All I did each time was click on the unsubscribe link on the email.

I have had this, but the phone companies and regulators assure me this is completely "impossible", and therefore not a complaint worthy of investigation. The only way to force the issue is for the innocent company who's number is being used to get hit repeatedly by fines from the regulator, and for them to expose this issue when appealing the fines in court with the backing of their well paid corporate lawyers.

It is the same with rogue affiliates. They impersonate casino management, and spoof the sender address to make it look like the casino is responsible. Only when the heat is turned up on the casino does it turn out to be a rogue affiliate behind it all.

I have suddenly started receiving these "csr Jane" emails from iNetBet, having not played there for a couple of years, and not till recently receiving ANY regular promotional mailers. I simply assumed they were from iNetBet, and just their way of ensuring I don't forget I still have an account there.

Thanks for the info but unfortunately it proves nothing. It's dead easy to send an email and make it look as if it came from someone else. There's info in the full message header that often, not always, reveals the truth of it. That's why you need to forward the full email to someone if they're going to be able to look into it seriously.

I still suggest you send me one as previously requested. Without it it's only guess-work, and heresay. No offense but that's not enough to take as serious evidence of your accusations against iNetBet.

It is certainly possibly to spoof caller id, there are companies advertising such services. If a company were the victim of such spoofing, it should be able to produce its own phone records showing that it did not make those calls and therefore it would not be fined.

Other than checking out the full headers that MaxD suggested we could also look at the contents of the spam mails. If they went into details on weekly promos such as the Weekend tasty trio or th tempting tuesday bonuses I am tempted:lolup: to believe it came from Inetbet as affiliates have nothing to gain from sending such spam. I had, before closing my account with Inet, received promos from them under the signatures of CSR James and possibly Jane though this does not necessarily mean they were the culprits.

The rep sent me a message on here that they deactivated my account to solve the problem. SHe stated she did not understand why unsubscribe didnt work.

The emails were Monday madness & Tempting Tuesdays.

@max I am definetley not a pro at Identifying scam spam, but I can normally ID if it is an affiliate or the casino direct. I woudnt have posted if I wasnt confident it was INET direct, but confidence does not mean that I am 100% correct. I have just forwarded the email for you to see.

.... I have just forwarded the email for you to see.

Sorry but whatever you did didn't work. All the headers were stripped off and that pretty much destroys the info I was asking for. Don't touch the original message. Perhaps try forwarding it as an attachment if you have that option.

Nope, same result as the first time. If you wish to proceed with this I suggest you contact me via PM (Link Outdated / Removed) or email, Attach Removed (Old not found). We can get you sorted off-line and not trouble the readership with the details.

Update: Just received my Inet bet weekend offers a few minutes ago. So obviously it has not stopped. Sent the rep a message.

@max - I will send you a PM if i cant get resolved. I find it rather silly that I have to be talking about getting off mailing lists. If you are still curious about these emails feel free to PM me, but other than that I will wait until after the weekend for the reps response.

I just received a message from Inet. They apologized and said the emails may have already been sent and did acknowledge they did stop some other emails from going to me, but now the list is updated and I should see no more.
