Has anyone seen these? I'm totally getting spammed - the last mail has a screenie with a bunch of topless women on it. But since I'm a girl it doesn't tempt me to click the link. :rolleyes:

I'm pretty sure it's not a legitimate casino even though it's got yahoo's logo plastered all over it. Actually I'm not positive that it's a casino at all, it almost looks like a phishing mail or an email harvester. Does anyone know anything about it?

Hi Chayton

I havnt seen it in my yahoo mail. Like you said, its highly doubtful that yahoo has a real online casino with topless girls. Im surprised yahoo didnt yank it

So much casino spam around at the mo...everything that mentions anything where I am not a member gets ditched...the easy way to deal with it. Amazes me they still work, but I guess while there are still people out there that believe there's such a thing as a free lunch...:rolleyes:

I use Spam Arrest too which is superb - been using it for about 2 years now: lets around only 1 or 2 of the 300 odd spams I get every day through the door. One of the best $35 I ever spent.

OMG
300 spams a day Simmo? I would spend that $35 too if I got that many. Ive been using my yahoo email lately because it automatically throws out my spam. I dont know how they know what I read and not read but its amazing that my inox only has what i want in it.

I get one nearly ever day for this Yahoo Casino..sometimes more and I don't use Yahoo for anything. I get them at both my aol and hotmail address. I just delete them as I agree it's highly, highly doubtful Yahoo has a casino!:)

I would think that Yahoo! is a brand name and the senders of this deceptive emails are not making Yahoo! happy. If anyone knows who to contact at Yahoo about this, with copies of the offending emails, perhaps Yahoo will put pressure on to make the spammers stop.

I couldn't figure out how to turn them in to Yahoo - it seems like the only way you can report spam at Yahoo is if you receive mail to your Yahoo account which is weird cause it says "any spam SENT from a Yahoo address is our top priority...blah blah blah...." but doesn't give you any way to contact customer support unless you log in. I personally don't have a Yahoo account so I turned them (the spammers) in to the FTC instead.

Interestingly enough, someone told me that they clicked the link in a Yahoo casino spam and it took them to a download page for "some Gold something casino" so it's possible this is yet another Gold Vip thing?

Most likely, it seems they have NO morals whatsoever in how low they will stoop in order to promote their ROGUE casino.

They must surely be trying to dethrone the Virtual group as Queen of Rogue city, and will no doubt succeed over time.
