This is like having my mailbox hit by a shotgun blast


It opens with the salutation "Bloody hell!"

Whatever happened to "Dear customer":rolleyes:

It then spams the HELL out of a bunch of casinos that are supposedly climbing over themselves to attract "bonus hunters" from the UK.

The following unrelated casinos are spammed, so they had better watch out for a deluge of UK "bonus hunters", now it has been suggested that extra large bonuses are now "exclusively available" to UK players.

Royal Vegas
Millionaire
VIP Slots
The International Blackjack League
Win A Day (new $lotland development, with sound)

NO unsubscribe link, and NO identity of the company other than the gmail address supposedly sending this "newsletter", and the addition of "All In Marketing Group", but no company address.

This is supposedly volume 129, so they have been "at it" for a while.

This is a battle that CANNOT be won without better cooperation from the AFFILIATE PROGRAMS. It seems that for every spammer that is shut down, two more emerge. The current policy of enforcement AFTER complaints are received is not fit for purpose, there is a need for strict vetting BEFORE an affiliate is allowed to promote the casinos in a program, and spamming should be taken as seriously as player fraud is. Rogue affiliatres should go onto a database so that when they try to fly back under the radar, as they do, they will be caught more often.

Windows 98SE

It is outdated, but so is this old PC:p

It's from All-in Marketing Group. It has a website xxxhttp://www.gamblingboard.com/

I got the spam too.

Seems to be a rash of these "marketing groups", so presumably a ruse to make the spam look legitimate. No unsubscribe link, so NOT legitimate, and no company address. The website is perhaps a clue, perhaps a group of such sites are trading email addresses, so whilst I didn't sign with them, maybe they have my email address from somewhere else I once signed up with.
