    I just got this fro This email is not visible to you. :
    Why would Maxima ask its customers not to deposit? Couldn't they block deposits if they wanted to? Would a casino ever announce that it's 'facing bankcruptcy'? Or could this be coming from some disgruntled affiliate or customer who has appropriated Maxima's mailing list? If that's the case, then it's a mightily aggressive attack.

    Their combined house edge via the games and the random usage of FU clause "we don't like how you play so we'll steal ur winnings" makes sure they come out on top. I wouldn't declare Maxima Casino near bankrupt at all.

    It wouldn't be surpising that one of their angry affiliaters/partners/customers is behind this e-mail spam. The e-mail didnt contain the casino username, so I am 95% sure that it's not from Maxima.

    In any case, any money deposited at Maxima casino is in moderate risk even though they probably aren't facing bankruptcy.

    They just started sending these:

    Maxima confirmed it's a hoax, although they don't explain how the person got hold of their mailing list.

    In the meantime I received another message similar to the first one, this time in what appears to be Italian. From 'Andres Hicks' (return email : This email is not visible to you.):

    In marketing, this is a tactic to promote brand awareness.

    Agreed! This whole thing could have been set up by them deliberately.
    From what I've heard, they are such cowboys they would stoop to anything - even the old maxim(a) "any publicity is good publicity"!

    Either that or it was some player they really pissed off by stealing from them.

    Yep, that would be very worrying.

    Clearly despite their protestations, they aren't safe and secure, because their entire email database has been compromised.

    This isn't this first time this has happened to online casinos.

    I don't know, I am playing with Maxima a while now and everything seems to be ok. Email was probably really just a spam attack...

    Yesterday I received my withdrawal, the support was very friendly as always, i haggled for a nice deposit offer and I got some free bonuses, so I think they are doing quite well :)

    I think that affilliates should also be reviewed more harshly from time to time, I've been getting an awful lot of spam mail from them, even if I already made a deposit. This spam attack was maybe really from some afiliate, but I don't know what they are bitc**n about, they earn quite a lot due to the fact they don't actually do anything... :rolleyes:

    Maxima will stay my prefered choice in the future...

    A casino facing financial problems would normally send out a special 1000% high-roller bonus promotion.

    Maxima just told me that they had sacked some ppl and one of the now ex-employees decided to steal the mailing lists on the last work day and start spamming their customers.

    Sounds very believable. However I don't think any personal information with these guys is really that safe.

    I got one of those today, too, GM. **heavy sigh**

    Even if it is a disguntled employee... what's the point? Most of the people these morons are sending these stupid emails to are US players and haven't been able to play at Maxima (Playtech) for months!

    Honest to god... has half the online world gone crazy??

    Maxima sent me a $10 freebie a week ago, and I played for while and cashed out $100.

    Its been 6 days and counting, and no Neteller payout.

    I'm not holding my breath given the latest issues players have had with them, but I wanted to let everyone else know to AVOID them until someone there pulls their finger out and gets things sorted.
