Hi All,

For a while now I've been receiving mailers from c-f-1.com.

Casino Share along with their other casino properties have been using this to send out their mailers.

Today I received one from Players Palace Casino. It had my Name and casino account attached.

However immediately following that email I received another one from c-f-1.com BUT this was SPAM.

I'm going to post everything I have so far on this including all headers.
My email program highlights possible phishing URL hence the true email URL are shown in some of these emails:

Going back to my 1'st post...the RTG SPAM came from the same IP and the same domain c-f-1.com that CasinoShare group uses to send out their mailers.

The rest is pretty damn obvious that CasinoShare group is using their player database to send SPAM to. Not impressed!

Pretty damning really.

The company behind c-f-1.com will forward email for ANYBODY. Playshare have presumably given them the contract to send out the promos, and will have passed them your email address. c-f-1.com ALSO take work from spammers, and will quite happily send SPAM, as well as legitimate marketing mail. HOW CAN WE TRUST c-f-1.com to "ring fence" their LEGITIMATE mailing business from their "spamming" arm; i.e. that valid email addressess supplied in good faith by casinos for sending out promos are not added to their "other" mailing list, the one for the mass spammings. We CANNOT take the casino's word for it, since they would not know. The only possible redress might be a privacy complaint, since these web addresses all point to UK company addresses.

Any and all of the promo emails I now get from Club World/Aladdin's Palace, come from that same email addy c-f-1.com. I thought it was a strange email addy....now I know. Oh, and they all have my name, account id, etc on them.

I followed the link to unsubscribe from the Clubworld email I received and it ends up at a company called NetAtlantic, an email marketing firm. Also the email I received was inviting me to play at Clubworld as if I wasn't already a customer, which I am. :eek:

What upsets me is my details have been given to a company that is a known spammer, when I'm (like other CS members) are given the impression that our personal details with NOT be disclosed/shared with another 3'rd party.

Although I can understand the issues gaming establishments are faced with when sending out mail to legit sources these days, it's the members privacy that should always be held in trust.

What surprises me time & time again is the lack of research taken by some gaming venues in finding a trustworthy mailing operation to deliver their mailers.

Granted everyone can make a mistake and accidents happen. However in my opinion this could have been avoided if the integrity of c-f-1.com was scrutinised by CS.

Therefore I can be fairly confident that (CS members details) have been given to a known spamming operation, who in turn are using this data to spam. Worse though, who is to say our details are also not being sold on :confused:

Unfortunately in this case the horse has clearly bolted and again it's the members who are left to clean up this mess.

IMHO it's about time that these type of security leaks where held to count.

Hi All,

First of all, regarding the post from Trezz, I would like to assure you from the outset there is absolutely no relationship between PlayShare (CasinoShare) and the Casino Spam that you have received. If you ever believe that we are doing something wrong please contact us first, especially an accusation as large as us spamming our database to other casinos, as it may be a simple misunderstand as is the case here.


The link that has been illustrated here is with the URL c-f-1.com, which belongs to Communicator Corporation (www.communicatorcorp.com), who provides a communication platform to a large number of companies, including FTSE 100 companies and various banks. In addition to this provides the same service they provide us to a large number of casino operation including a big portion of the larger casino groups.

We are speaking to Communicator about the URL c-f-1.com as we agree that what you have illustrated here could quite easily be seen as something surreptitious, but I would like to assure you that this is not the case where PlayShare is concerned - we cannot speak for the other casinos that you have sited here, but we are very strict and proper about the way and who we e-mail.

I can assure you we did in-depth research when we looked for a communication platform, as database security is of the upmost importance to us.

Regards
Mario

The problem is that SPAM mailers ALSO link back to c-f-1.com, showing that they are prepared to handle mass mailings WITHOUT making any checks that what they are being asked to do is legitimate. This in turn casts doubt onto the integrity of Communicator Corporation, since if they are prepared to be a party to the sending of SPAM, what is to say that they will not offer to send mailers out to addresses they have on file, even where these addresses have come into their possession from a different contract (such as sending out promos).

c-f-1.com is also used for LEGITIMATE mailings from Club World, but those Club World SPAM mailings are ALSO being sent out through the c-f-1.com domain.

There is one HELL of a lot of SPAM where hovering over parts of the message show up c-f-1.com as the "host" for the links and images. This rather suggests a leak between email addresses supplied as part of a legitimate contract, and the spamming contracts.

NetAtlantic is a known spammer, and it seems the ONLY work they handle is spam related.

It matters little what we are told, but when our mailboxes are deluged with spam from c-f-1.com, we tend to think we have been "sold out".

What I find interesting about this whole spamming issue is that we are increasingly seeing casino spam for casinos WITH NO CURRENT AFFILIATE PROGRAM, so this kicks the "rogue affiliate" argument into touch.

For example, Quatro Casino - SPAM, yet the affiliate program at the time was still very much "work in progress", so who sent it? It simply CANNOT be a "rogue affiliate" (unless a stupid one - no tracking, so no profit), and it is hard to see any other entity other than the casino itself benefiting from such early spamming.

Well, I have upped the ante on this. I started a thread about me sending an email to Grand Mondial, which THEIR server rejected because there was an association detected with c-f-1.com, which is on a (malware prevention) industry BLACKLIST for incessant spamming.

This shows that not much "diligent research" was done, since the result was to choose a firm who is on a blacklist, and therefore likely to be blocked by many spam filters. There is also considerable doubt as to the security of our data provided to Communicator Corporation by Playshare, and whether Communicator Corporation will extract revenue by using email addresses supplied by legitimate customers to grow spamming lists for their disreputable customers, who just want their "newsletter" spammed out to as many email addresses as possible.

This may be the "leak" we have been worried about, a lack of care in vetting third party mass mailing agents could be leading to our "high quality" email addresses making their way onto spammer's lists. Circumstantial evidence of my own points to this possibility, as I receive MUCH more spam on my PRIVATE email address given out to casinos, and then passed by them to the likes of Communicator Corporation for sending mailers, than I do on my "public" email addresses, easily available to web crawling and other nefarious extraction schemes.

After reading this and receiving the latest spam from c-f-1.com I've decided to pull all promotions of CasinoShare Group from my sites.

I have about 50 domains and all but a few use the same email address in my whois info. Apart from getting a few bits and pieces of spam (which is filtered by my mail server anyway), it is nothing compared to the truck loads of crap I receive on a daily basis from the email I use for casino registration.

Some days I'm getting hit with up to 500 spams, all casino related.

Anyway...I'm not about to point fingers at an accredited casino group here on CM if I hold any doubts. This is just another example of how some casinos place the $ before their own customers privacy.

I Thought I'd check out the T&C's to find out about CS's Privacy Policies.

Give me a break! Casinoshare has been spamming me repeatedly and daily for months. I've made multiple requests to the affiliate network and the casino to stop. They don't reply and they don't stop. At this point in time, I'm going to get up close and personal. Any casino that participates in SPAM is a trash operation, whether they do it directly or indirectly. The best way to handle these carnival operators is to not do business with them and let them know why. The most effective way is illegal.

The problem is identifying where the leak is. Because of the strict rules surrounding transactions using Neteller, I have through necessity had to use the same email address for all casinos AND Neteller. I have been using my three email addresses for some while now. The one I use with Neteller and casinos, as well as my other PRIVATE business relationships, such as notifications from online managed accounts, and also some other types of online entertainment sites (such as quizzes, surveys, reading ads for reward, etc) now receives 100, sometimes 200, messages PER DAY. The other email address I use for "vinylweatherman" activities, easily available in my profile, and usable to anyone here to contact me, and for anyone to harvest, receives LESS in the way of spam, FAR LESS. The one on my website also receives this much lower level of spam.
To me, this looks like the activity of entities to which I have given my email address to is leading to MUCH MORE spam than that generated by background activities of such things as bots spamming to randomly generated email addresses, or even the harvesting of my "vinyl" email addresses from places I have made it available.

The level of spam is now so great that I am mistakenly deleting legitimate emails due to lapsing into "autopilot", and just skimming subject lines when faced with a notification like I had today, "323 new messages" or thereabouts.

email is no longer fit for purpose because of the spammers who drown out the small number of legitimate, and perhaps important beyond the mere offer of another bonus, email messages.

The backlash is growing, and there are going to be "witchhunts" against businessess that even APPEAR to be leaving our information vulnerable.

There is no actual PROOF that Communicator Corporation are actually misusing addresses given to them by company "a" in order to bulk out the database for spammer "b"; but there is a pretty good MOTIVE (more money), and a company that is happy to take a contract from a spammer is not likely to rigorously apply both the letter and the SPIRIT of anti-spam legislation if doing so leads them to making less money by not being able to offer such large databases of recipients.

There is another thing puzzling me, and that is why there are SO MANY "rogue affiliates" subcontracting to the likes of Communicator Corporation rather than doing the spamming themselves. I would have thought it would have to be an affiliate with deep pockets to be able to even afford this level of subcontracting, and have a big enough mailing list to make it necessary. I had always thought of "rogue affiliates" as being some "kid" with a PC, and a dangerous level of knowledge unmatched by a maturity of ethics, seeing a way to make a quick buck by joining a program, spamming like crazy, maybe getting caught (but keeping the money so far), and moving on.

CasinoShare Investigation

CasinoShare is involving themselves, directly and indirectly in massive volumes of spam. Due to the extreme amounts of spam hitting my network from them and their refusal to stop through ordinary means of communication, I initiated an investigation. In the last four days, 500 new DSL accounts have been created with a total of 1200 email accounts. Four hundred of these addresses were used in registered accounts with CasinoShare and Players Palace, three hours later four hundred were distributed in the Fortune Lounge group accounts and four hundred were distributed in various RTG accounts. Within 24 hours of establishing accounts with CasinoShare and Players Palace massive volumes of indirect spamming for a multitude of unregistered casinos, began hitting the addresses. In the next 48 hours all of the addresses unsubscribed from the various casinos. There were only two casinos that continued to spam; CasinoShare and Players Palace. They are abusing their players and undermining the integrity of the industry as a whole. Anyone that promotes them is doing the samewhether it be by playing, affiliation or being complacent with the behavior.

Don't let casinos or aff programs piss in your pocket about spamming not working. I'm sick of hearing this line myself.

Fact is it very profitable. Information collection agencies offer lists of decent emails @ 0.10 - 0.25 cents, much less for bulk order of 250,000 +.

If your making $100K a month from spamming you can afford to pay.

Some casinos are desperate for players and WILL turn a blind eye if it means keeping their head above water!

Anyone that promotes them is doing the samewhether it be by playing, affiliation or being complacent with the behavior.

Awesome post Antonia and I would have also "Nominated" it too but the "Nominate" button has not been included here. That was some very very good information gathering there on your part...thanks for taking the time to put this info together. :thumbsup::notworthy

This really sucks. I'm not being spammed by CasinoShare, just getting some email. Probably cuz I play there a little pretty regularly. However, I'm down with PLAYERS so:

CASINOSHARE, KNOCK IT THE F**K OFF AND NOT ANOTHER DIME FROM ME UNTIL YOU DO!

I finally got FL to quit but I'm not sure how. They never replied or addressed this whole thread.

https://www.casinomeister.com/forum...as-own-affiliate-for-spamming-purposes.26137/

I never went back there and I deposited at every one of their sites.

CasinoShare just emailed me with a 75% match promo and elevated me to VIP status. I'm gonna reply to that email with a link to this thread and tell them where they can stick it.

Edit: The email correspondence:

To whom it may concern:

This following link is to my posted reply in a thread which has recently been brought to my attention:

https://www.casinomeister.com/forum...casino-share-direct-connection-to-spam.30630/

I intend for this email to be my next post to that thread.

Until such a time that CasinoShare has ceased from spamming, I'm not depositing or gaming at your sites. In the meantime, you may take my VIP status and STICK IT WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE!

Don't let casinos or aff programs piss in your pocket about spamming not working. I'm sick of hearing this line myself.

Fact is it very profitable. Information collection agencies offer lists of decent emails @ 0.10 - 0.25 cents, much less for bulk order of 250,000 +.

If your making $100K a month from spamming you can afford to pay.

Some casinos are desperate for players and WILL turn a blind eye if it means keeping their head above water!

Oh, I know that;)

I have even heard this from an insider.

It seems that what we get when we expose an individual affiliate, and PROOF of spam, is that a rep from the casino and/or the program gives the offending affiliate a "good taking to", and then comes back to say the issue has been addressed.

Given how hard it can be to pin spam down to a particular individual, all a spammy affiliate risks is "a good talking to". Even if they end up getting their affy account shut down, it seems they just open another one, and all is fine. Just try this as a PLAYER, and see how "fine" that is:mad:

Now, for interest, has anyone considered posing as a business, casino, or marketing agency, and approaching Communicator Corporation to see what they are prepared to do for you. I would be thinking of approaching them to see if they would be willing to send YOUR mailer to THEIR "confidential" lists that other clients have supplied to them, or worse still, even be prepared to sell the lists directly.
