I don't know if the casino rewards group is responsible for this ad, but it showed up in my news feed on Facebook. I live in Brantford, and its a small community. If this actually happened we would know, and I'm almost positive this family doesnt even exist!

Hahahaha it must be true! There is a fake screenshot to prove it!

How can you trust an organisation when they do this...

Absolutely messed up! Using cancer like that. And you read the comments on the ad, people are believing it.

Just....wow. They almost lost me at "Boe Kellogg" but after fighting through lie after made up lie, I too can't believe anyone would surely take this seriously :what:

Using the cancer angle was obviously cheap, but the thing that annoys me most is the litany of shills in the comments section congratulating the casino etc. Bunch of nobs :mad:

Oddly enough, I saw a very similar one yesterday... it was over 1 million, and the guy surprised his bride on the wedding day. The guy was a teacher who had survived cancer.

The bank statement was TD, but the Ruben Sports purchase was on there, but I think it was Tim Horton's he went to first.

A google search for Ruben Sports shows a sports bar in Indianna.

Let's give this a 15 on the greasy scale.

Here's a link to a real story about Boe Kellogg, who passed away from cancer in 2013. And that photo in the fake news story is of his real boy Jett.

This disgusts me. I've send Renee a link to this thread, hope she can shut down the account of this despicable affiliate.

Google his name and you will find several stories about him some including the same photo used in the casino story. All of them are about the kid and the surprise was something to do with meeting a bulls rider just like his father.

So by looks of it the casino has used his picture and story to make a tacky post about winning at their casino as according to other posts his father was a professional bulls rider not a mechanic. looks indeed like the story about kids father dying is true the rest is garbage.

Wow, eh! I figured as much that the pictures were stolen. I wonder how the family would feel knowing this. Who is Renee? Do you think Casino Rewards is doing this, or some shithead marketing for them?

Utterly despicable :mad:

This reminds me of the sort of viral ads you used to see from people peddling Herbalife, Juiceplus and other MLM shit. 'My retarded baby daughter was close to death, but I started feeding her Aloe Vera every day and now she can run 100m in 5 seconds and has an IQ of 177!'

You have to wonder what goes through the author's head when they sit down and decide to make an article like that. I guess commission-based earnings detach some desperate people from their morals. Or maybe the author is simply a cold-hearted parasite. I hope the book gets thrown at them.

This is the most sickening piece of filth, backed up with bogus shill stories, I have ever seen even from the lowest scum affiliates. Same writing style, same shill replies about "only winning a lesser amount of xx-k" as that ridiculous Irish pensioner story a while back - this sounds the same.
This even makes A$$power look decent. I hope the c**t who thought this shit up hasn't tempted fate by their choice of subject matter. An insult to all families living through this sucking condition and Bebo I'm surprised hasn't smashed her monitor in.

Renee, if you can identify the piece of shite that made this up, summarily shut their account and any commission they've made or have owing, how about donating it to a Canadian Cancer Charity?? Then apologize of their behalf. You CAN do it, your terms say so. :thumbsup:

Ruined what was a hitherto decent day for me. :(

It's insidious scum like this that give affiliates a poor name.
The steamers don't help.
But this is just sick.
Ok plying for trade via someone gambling is never going to be totally moral, but this...
obscene.
I hope some action is taken. I really do.

I have seen so much from this horrible disease, it would leave people who haven't experienced it, speechless! I sometimes sit in the dressing room before treatment in tears. I have to take a mild sedative before I go each day, otherwise I have a full blown panic attacks. The good thing is that come Tuesday I will have 10 more treatments left, and then I get to ring that bell and say I AM IN REMISSION! I don't wish this on my worse enemy, and I really hope whom ever did this, didn't tempt fate either. :) And I will be proudly posting my picture of me ringing the bell.

I look forward to seeing the picture! :thumbsup:

And this thread MUST surely get the 2017 CM award in the New Year as the most evil affiliate trick of the year or whatever negative CM category this crap fits into. :mad:

For those that do not know, Renee has long been the CR rep here at CM. An exception was made for her when CR became accredited as she cannot post in the forum, although she has always been quick to respond to pm's.

I've also "reported" the thread so that it will come to Bryan's attention, and have asked that he discuss the matter with her also.

Thanks for jumping on this so quickly Jazz. He/she should actually be charged.

Disgusting to say the least.

The only action to be taken is to shut down the aff account. The domain is protected so no info there from whoIs. And it seems they are saying the domain is owed by a balloon company of all things which
I did find was located in Singapore , they have a facebook page, web site. Nothing linked to gambling. Does not mean the balloon company is part of this as the operator of this site could have chosen this company as a cover. Or the domain does really belong to the balloon company. Its bad though when this kind of thing happens, casinos need to take more care in tracking traffic sources ,... which yes is doable even though time consuming.

I dont think there is anyone who has not been directly or indirectly affected by this terrible disease ... (we lost our mum to it 3 years back :( ....

Lets hope the rep/casino jump all over this asap!

Despicable indeed and I hope that the casino rep takes action against the affiliate.

Even the "reporter" won a decent amount on the casino - yeah right :confused::eek2:
