Affiliate Warning: C-Planet Detagging players
During the period of April 2008 to June 2010, over 1000 players deposited at the Rushmore casino group via Casinomeister links. By March 2011, the stats at C-Planet had flatlined with no activity whatsoever. I thought this a little odd since there would be some activity under normal circumstances, but since the Rushmore Casino group was dissatisfying so many players, I figured people had quit playing there. I was totally wrong.
In April 2012, a casino representative signed up in the forum and began this thread: Rushmore Affiliate, totally ignoring the fact that at one time, they had been heavily promoted at Casinomeister. It turned out that a number of forum members still had active accounts at Rushmore.
I queried the forum members in June 2012 asking whether or not they had opened an account via Casinomeister, and if they still had active accounts. Most said no, but a good handful said that they did – they knew that they had signed up via our links and were still depositing, or had done so since March 2011. Here are a few examples:
07/27/09 Cherry Red
08/13/09 Cherry Red
04/05/11 Slots Oasis
04/15/11 Slots Oasis
And these were only from forum members. Members of the newsletter were never queried, neither were the faceless visitors who visit Casinomeister on a regular basis. Whatever the case may be, the player stats have been tampered with.
I made several polite inquiries directly to the owner – copying on the management and C-Planet staff – no response. Not even a bounced email. Their behaviour is not only disrespectful and unprofessional, it’s obnoxious.
The operator had the ball in his court – he could have come back to me stating he would look into this, or better yet – another promise that he was getting his act together. He could have at least denied it, but this was not the case. It was “speak to the hand – f.u. – we can do whatever we want”.
Why am I not surprised?
