    Hi Inspiration,

    Thanks for your message. Not sure about the ''quote'', we certainly didn't say that...

    Please can you explain why this is a hacked site? Looks like a landing page.... siteswaps.com

    We can then investigate this. Of course if the affiliate has indeed broken our terms and conditions then we will take the necessary steps.

    I'm guess that Inspiration has contacted you guys previous to commencing this thread?

    In a nut shell, there are a few hackers or a group of hackers, who have been up to criminal activities.
    EG - Hacking sites and injecting iframes of their site, such as the url above.

    This hacker is one of your affiliates and is now promoting Miami Casino.

    Should also mention, these hackers or group of, have been scraping sites and using single sentences, scraped from contextual paragraphs. Might not seem like a big deal (only a few sentences). However these hackers, using this text are now (in most instances) out ranking the copyright holders of this text.

    And thus acquiring new players, who would have otherwise been tagged to legitimate affiliates and website owners of this scraped text.

    Couple of reference points for you Deckmedia ;)

    If you want to offer the best in the business you should not allow hackers.
    You will not find these affiliates with Rewardsaffiates, 32Red etc because they ARE scanning new affiliates.


    I sent 2 emails really short ones I must admit but still you have been given a warning.
    It is not all about offering the best services you also want to prevent hackers from allowing to promote your casinos. They hack innocent sites and put our copied content on it.
    If you were not aware of this issue I am sorry but your not doing your homework. This industry soon will change from "acceptable" to "bad" if this criminal activity will not be stopped asap.


    Most of my sites have been copied and become worthless and soon more affiliates will complain.

    If Deckmedia does not want to protect - via not paying hackers - what is ours that produce the traffic etc you will end up with them.

    Hi Inspiration,

    We havent received your emails. Can you confirm which email address you emailed us from in a private message?

    We have already closed one account. So its not like we are turning a blind eye to whats going on.

    Please can you check and resend the links, both links provided open an error page. We will then investigate this specific issue.
