    Thumbs down Affiliate SPAM - onlinecasinobonusportal.com

    Hi GoldenLounge,

    I received an email today and from the mail headers it appears to trace back to the above site (goldenloungemailer.com which is where it said it was from) re-directs to this portal.

    Please can you deal with this if you are serious about Anti-Spam policy!

    I know for a fact I never signed up to this site so I suspect someone has sold my email address without consent (it addressed me by name) but that doesn't excuse spamming does it?

    This is the majority of the email:-

    Visit the web page below immediately to get a 200 pounds bonus on what I consider to be the leading casino-on-the-web...

    I highly recommend you take advantage of the 3 first welcome bonuse's, because they've literally made me win more than I won my whole life.

    Click here now and give it a shot.

    Xhttp://www.GOLDENLOUNGEMAILER.COM/C/170/159/8214

    It could be the best thing you ever did for yourself!

    You can win big,
    Diana Laning
    ----------------------------------------

    Please let me know what you have done to stop them doing this (and if you are the owner of this site then stop spamming and I would like to know where you got my email address from).

    Thanks
    Geno

    Default Email Spammer - removed

    Hi,

    I just wanted to thank you for your thread. As I am sure you are aware there are affiliates who dont abide by our very strict regulations and our code of ethics. We do everything we can to ensure our affiliates are of the highest quality but some do sadly sneak through.

    Where it is brought to our attention however we act swiftly and decisively. In this case the affiliate has been removed from the programme and their outstanding commissions have been reversed.

    I completely understand this doesnt make up for your frustration but I hope it acts as an example of our view on this activity.

    As always if you have any further questions on this, or any other matter, please feel free to contact myself and I will be happy to help,

    Duncan

    Hi Duncan,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, it seems they are still spamming so either using a different account or they have not been stopped. This is REALLY annoying and I've already stopped promoting Golden Lounge - I don't get anywhere near as much spam from other places - I've had at least 4 others from the same (this resolves to the same scum affiliate or marketing site).

    Are you sure this isn't some marketing company you've (or 'the company' of course) have paid to spam people?

    I just received this (about 15 mins ago) as well as all the others more others too..

    ----------------
    Did you know that over 172,000 players have received winning's from Golden Lounge... now you can too.

    I'm not clicking on these links to remove my email address - they shouldn't have it in the first place!

    I will just auto-block these now or return them.

    I'm not promoting Golden Lounge - if they are sending out so much spam there's little point - people will get annoyed with so much idiotic hassling and from the few things I've seen so far - bad signs.

    I expect the next thing will be 100s of CDs thru the mail LOL

    Perhaps you should name and shame if this is an affiliate as they shouldn't be allowed to continue doing this (perhaps that might stop them!).

    Cheers,
    G

    PS. I'm not going to bother chasing up more on these or posting any more as I know they will continue anyway ... I will watch for replies to see if others are getting spammed too or what you are doing to stop it.

    Hi,

    again, completely understand your concerns but I assure you they have been dealt with.

    We take spammers very seriously - as everyone else does I would imagine - and will not accept this activity on our programme.

    It has been drawn to our attention independently but again, to confirm, they have been dealt with.

    Kind Regards,

    Duncan
